Hi their

As said earlier I keep my boat at shepards. Their Website is
www.shepards.co.uk/ which has their number on it. You will need to speak to a person called Greg.

As Tim mentioned earlier their are other options available on the Medina. If you are looking for a slipway to use then basically their arnt any that are any good for launching.

Simon

I keep my RIB on a pontoon at Victory Yards and it works well for me I keep a tender on dry land and row out to the boat. Its a bit of a problem at low water so I use a water taxi. The pontoon is usable at all states of the tide.

Hi Simon

What about the slip at the Folly Inn or at East Cowes? The boatlaunch.co.uk site suggests that these are quite usuable???

Cheers

I see you have a 5m boat so folly is ok to launch from just beaware of MLWS as there can be a big drop off at the end of the slip , great place for having a beer after a day on the water. River Medina has launch sites by Newport Town Quay but tidal so need to plan your trip .
Next to Shepherds is a slip only problem is parking car and trailer after .
Yarmouth you can launch from with ease and car park is just across the road .
The advantage of trailering is you can see alot of the Island coastline by using different launch sites . Ventnor is a pretty place but the Harbour is tidal so need to time your trip same goes for Bembridge but not impossible if you plan your day in advance.
Have fun

Crosshouse slipway (excellent) is not too far away probably 500m there's also a useable but scuzzi slipway about 200 yards away. The yard we are in also has a Crane Launch facility.

re the chat I am good at talkins i'm on 02380 448042

cheers

for got two

There is a slip next to Island sailing club and car parking
There is a slip between Red Funnel Ferry terminal and Trinity Lighthouse wharf
is very narrow and steep car park just up the road.

Also tucked into the town of Cowes is another public slip but access is not easy and you will then have a problem of where to park the car and trailer.
There are no pontoons nearby so you will need two of you to launch and recover.
