The concrete part of the slip is usable for about 3/4 of the tidal range. As far as I can remember the end of the slip drops onto hardish ground for a few feet but then it turns to horribly soft mud.

I have recovered my 4.7mtr there an hour after LW springs.

Bruce, I am sure someone will correct me but when I recover at low tide I use a long line attatched to the car and trailer and that keeps the car off the slippery part of the slipway. Apparently, the trick is to have a company car because these don't suffer from tyre wear, clutch wear or corrosion!

As a rule of thumb I would give it a couple of hours after low water. You can always just wait for it to come in a bit.

If you do it close to High water you'll have less slipery slipway for your Peugeot 807.

Cheers

Phil

When did you want to get Farfetched out ?

We are quite often in Lymington on a Saturday (Usually AM). Would be happy to haul you out with our old Land Rover.

Thanks for help. This was a bit theoretical since I got her out easily at 10.45am last Sunday morning. The question was really whether I could have left it one or two hours later. I think HW was about 7am?
