No issues Ian, the HQ has water at all tide states. They have plenty of long side berthing for RIBs, slip way and slings.

The only other consideration is that the HQ is beyond Poole Bridge with clearance of 1.79m above MHWS. Most Ribs can get under without great difficulty other than on exceptional tides but you may need to lower any particularly tall aerials!

Seems you'll be there on official business C2 but we'd been wondering about having a long weekend at the college sometime in 2012. I wonder if an "ordinary" guest could launch their SIB from the slip?

Need to make sure your equipment and procedure was 100% with the RNLI guys about though!

You will probably be out of luck with the RNLI slip as it is inside the maintenance centre compound with restricted access.

There is however a small slipway between the RNLI college and maintenance centre - as far as I know it is for public use, although it is not listed on Boatlaunch

Google Maps

Should be fine for a SIB.

Cheers

There is always the public slipway head for Labrador drive (sign posted as well)
plenty of parking and even trailers can get parked up but can get busy
the 10.00 all day fee covers you for up to 4m boat in the harbour area

was there the other week gr8 fun place have to be a little patient at times
