So will not scratch your hull, nor have i ever caused any damage to my hulls fully laden with fuel kit etc Or you can go out with tide depends how you work it and return 6 8 or 12 hrs later. You choice. Lundy island minehead watchet Weston super mare cardiff Ifracombe and many more ,, i. access al these places from this location Beach is 9am to 4pm oct to April Then 8am to 8pm April to oct I launch my osprey 6mtr also a destroyer behind a little citroen no hassle at all
Cheers for that , it all made sense . Looks like a great place and will definitely give it a go this spring/summer .

Cheers sounds straightforward enough. Knowing my luck it'd be too rough after towing all the way there! No problems with people faffing around and blocking the slipway though!!

Wind sea state and tides all here

Important on anything over a 10.8 the beach stays locked as it will flood the whole place nect Monday is a 12.2.

Do not drive any lower than end of these stakes
Full flood pic attached no beach

Also there is a proper jetty further into the town 58.00 a year to use but full of jet skiers.

Sorry Nugent, jut read through your description and I'm being a bit of a muppet

Dropping the boat off the trailer seems fine, I assume you simply push or reverse winch it (take strap under one of the supporting spars so that it pulls the boat off).

When recovering do you winch the boat straight onto the trailer? Do have a split back trailer (is that the correct term)? Do you unhitch the trailer from the car to allow it to rise at the front - easing the bow onto the rollers?

I like the idea of launching / recovering this way on a shallow beach, just don't want make an ar$e of it

I just push it off he trailer,comes off easy once it gets half way the trailer rises in the air and it flows off most of the way , then by pulling trailer back down it sort of gets ejected from the boat. so yes un hitch from the car

Recovery I just reverse down to boat un hitch and push under bow hen simply winch it on,,

Back down sat 15 th if you are bored,and fancy seeing the sites

If in remember will vidio it

Excellent, makes sense I was worried that the winch wouldn't be strong enough to pull the boat from the ground onto the trailer.

Will try it this weekend. Be great to see your video though.
