Looks good Matt, whats the slip like at Beachley? How long have you got either side of high water?

well we are in springs at the mo, and too be honest, i have a boat years ago and really f---ed up on the sever, my fault, but it all went superbly, had 3 hours either side, we are heading in to Neaps now and speaking with the SARA rescue crew, you could launch at Low tide, easy to launch and recover, as its one of the most gentle gradient slips ive known, there are Mooring up Metal eyes on the side off the slip x 4,
when the tide is on its way out(looks pretty fast)at the bottom of the slip the water slows drastically, so self recover a doddle!! highly recommended, and Free, !!
