its correct if you are below 200kg you are paying for 200kg no matter what and its £50+vat it shouldn't be too bad next visit as theres bits of a timber trailer and mesh sides to get done as well

You can launch from largs for free if you use the public slip by the car park before the sailing club
Not good at low tide though as the beach is quite shallow for the last 1/4 of the tide

I had a tyre slashed at Port Glasgow, but probably 10 yrs ago now. I expect the person responsible has either grown up or moved on to more significant crime now. Perhaps someone new has filled the gap, but when I reported it to the police they didn't seem overly surprised although they said they hadn't had other reports. I've spoken to a few people who use the slip fairly regularly and have never had a problem.

Having looked a that slip at about half tide I felt it was borderline and there seems to always be some event or other going on that monopolises the car park.
On the positive side, if you miss the tide or there's a problem you can always resort to the marina's slip that's good for any weather or tide. (but not cheep)

It is brand new refurbished but they could have made it better imo, it has a little green slime on it so be careful. They should have done what Largs has with that type of concrete or stones that no slime grows on or if it does you still have grip.

There is a big eye at the top of it so if worried can tie off to that or rope it down.

I launched from it once last year but I wouldn't like to put car down it too far due to slime, but my rig is substantially heavier and I've seen cars use it with small cabin cruisers with little issue.

Edit, not a great piccy but gives you an idea....it is not fenced off BTW anymore.

BTW, if you want to go out I'm up for a jaunt but I'll be launching at kip. (Assuming arnold clark give me my car back I should say)

Yes I'm planning to come on the 27th, never been on the forth so look forward to it.

As I said, it is totally dependent on arnold clark getting me my car back though. They have had it 3 weeks plus now.

you can also launch at the largs lifeboat slip for free, it can be a bit rough to recover in a good west or south west.
