Plenty of RIBs use Beadnell

Beadnell - about two miles south of Seahouses, is a big launch site for RIBs. Mostly for divers visiting the Farne Islands. The barrier is open Easter to the end of October, and on summer weekends it can get very very busy. There's a tractor service for launching via the beach.

I've also seen quite a few launching from Seahouses itself. I think this also has 'seasonal' opening hours.

We have a wee cottage at Sandsend near Whitby. Which is the closest, cheapest launch point for a 6.5M?

Thanks

Bruce

You can launch at Whitby harbour all year round. Its a good wide slip with water washdown (take your own hose and tap connector).Slip "dries" (drops off into the mud !) LW +/- 1.5hrs.
Directions are on boatlaunch and harbour master is very friendly.

Hi there - I am in Newcastle.
Use the South Shields slipway, and will be wetting the latest Rib sometime soon, hopefully before Christmas !
Got to run in the new engine for 10 hours or so, so I suspect some pottering up the river at first.

RIBase
We launch from Whitby & Seahouses, both good slips as long as you avoid the bottom of springs.

We launch from Amble, the slip next to the marina.

Its not a bad slip and easy to launch a couple of hours either side of high water, just have to go the wrong way round the ridiculous roundabout to get the right angle to reverse down.

I am in York. If yours was not in a pile of pieces, then where would you launch? [Around Hull]
