This Google Streetview might help, I would have also have a look at your route down to the slip as the traffic is a nightmare in Newquay and the streets are a bit narrow with parked cars and 3 sheets to the wind trippers..

Good luck..

Used to dive with a group and launch a 5.8m Osprey there with a Land Rover, the access ramp onto the Harbour beach is concrete but after that you`re onto sand and I would agree with it being 1/4 tidal(up to 1.5 hrs either side of LW).
We gave up using Newquay for either launching a RIB or mooring our hardboat as its too busy in the summer to park, get to your boat, get to the steps, you end up pissing off the fisherman and tripper boats its too much hassle.
Hayle further west has a useable slipway too but has a sandbar at the entrance and is effectively 1/2 tidal for RIBs.

Simon, did I hear on Radio Cornwall that you'd had a heap of trouble returning from Norway?

Yes, you heard right, I went to Norway for a 2 day meeting for work and got stuck there with the Volcanic ash problem.
Eventually my workmates and I jumped on a ferry to Denmark, train then hire car through Denmark and Germany into Holland where we caught a ferry to Newcastle, where I got on the train home. Four days travelling, great fun!

Holland to Newcastle? Handy for Penryn.
