Poole launching and parking

Probably been covered before but I have a specific question.

Where is the best place to launch or should that be recover a big RIB with good parking for LandRover and trailer for about 3 days??? Ideally fairly near the ferryport.

I wouldn't leave your vehicle at a public slipway for three days. Perhaps try Poole Boat Park?

Have a look here, Codders: Launching around Poole Harbour

Does this mean you've got a delivery date for your RIB?

Still no definite date but should be before mid August!!!

Don't care about leaving vehicle for 3 days as long as it's in nobody's way - my LandRover has nothing inside it to steal and if anyone manages to get the vehicle away they deserve a medal - I use a couple of very hefty chains which I chuck around the nearest lamp post as well as another through the wheels!!! The trailer will be just as well guarded!!!

This quote from Andy looks interesting - anyone know any more - ie parking??
"Between the boat storage yard and the mariner/sunseeker building is dee way
a good little known deep all tide FREE slipway.

Poole bridge/// units/// boat yard // slipway //mariner-sunseeker building///rnli college"

DJL suffered from slashed tyres a year-or-so ago whilst parked at the Baiter slipway, so beware. I guess you could park at the ferry terminal?

I'm sure the friendly natives will add to this, maybe saving you a trip?

As a resident at Poole Boat Park I doubt very much if they will do a one-off lift and recovery; or if they do it will be big $$.

Best bet is Cobbs

Cheers

poole slipways

hello there, cobbs quey which is across the lifting bridge then 3/4 mile on right (signposted) it has a barrier which comes across at night and camera's, you are supposed to pay to launch on there large slipway, but i have never had any one ask for money..and no indication of where to go to pay?

the car park is very secure and is not affected by high or low tides.

good luck ian
