Yes, though it usually goes up a couple of quid each year .

The club slip should hopefully be more sheltered in the future from northerly winds and seas eventually if they build a concreate jetty to replace the wooden one that the pilots use, especially now the old lifeboat slipway has been demolished too .
you will be at the Tees B,S,A,C dive club just past the pilot station in the old military police station or whats left of it .
pic of your club boats a few years back using the slip

Anyhow back to the thread .

i use the private slip at South Gare marine club at Teesmouth Redcar ,,we did have it open for public launching at one time but after a number of serious accidents/incidents with non members having launched, we decided to have it club member use only.
i also use the free public slips at Redcar itself from time to time depending on which boat i am going to use .

one advantage the club slip is usually well maintained .
Hello Mark, which club are you in and how much does it cost?

(OOOPS!sorry guys I had not read all the threadss before I jumped in with the question- I see it was already answered.)

Thanks

Lee

If so can i ask you where you launch from,

how often do you go out is there any clubs in the area,

What do you use your rib for ie fun diving etc.

Thanks

Hello Norman, when the old tub is working I launch my RIB from, Whitby, South Shields, Beadnell, Seahouses and the beach at Dunbar.

I have taken it further afield such as Mull but South Shields is my local stomping ground.
I am toying with the idea of putting it in a marina for the summer months next year.

I mainly go diving but I have been known for days out with the missus and daughter on the farnes photographing puffins, (not often enough though).

Where do you launch from?

Lee

I'm getting good at this replying years down the road.
We should organise a north east cruise.... Maybe Amble to the Farne's.
