So! there are also duties to pay to the state in UK!
I laugh. Yes 10£ is to much when you think only to duties on each petrol gallon, 20% duty ( TVA , I dont know his name in UK, that money that we pay on ALL that we buy) we are cow to milk! I hope you understand me. Bye bye. Not any answer from our cousins in the USA? They are early in the morning......!

To compare, I wish know the price of using slipways in: England, United States, particularly Florida and California, Australia, New Zeland and South Africa.
And I inform you if you want informations about french Mediterranean Cost betwen Rhône River and Spanish boundaries and Corsica Island.

Aningoul,

It varies hugely in the UK - boatlaunch on RIBnet may provide some idea.

Some are free. Others charge. Some are free but charge to park your car/trailer. Some have an annual fee. Some will require proof of insurance etc. Anything from free to £20 per day would be typical.

RIBase
Appledore is only £10 on peak weekends and summer time when the official is there, otherwise it's just the parking fee.

You can launch at Bideford but is more restricted on time, bit like Bude but you have the surf to contend with as well there.

Never tried to launch at Barnstable, there is Instow as well but again not tried it.

Plymouth gives loads of options, most free but some do charge, the Plymouth Authority web site shows you which is which. Fowey is fun and you pay for the parking parking which includes the slip.

Illfracombe is another option, but again tidal.

If you have a good 4x4 a number of the local beaches are launchable too

Appledore on high tide is great fun in the Estuary, no need to go over the bar, and a great area for pulling toys.

Happy to come up for a run - if I can ever find a spot in the diary to get wet
