Think they still allow anything under 20hp to launch at Studland the problem the OP will have is if using a trailer they will charge £20 to launch!

Plenty launch SIB's there but they inflate when they get there hence possibly avoid the £20 charge

That's interesting! I thought that the whole bay was a no no for powered craft due to seahorses and other marine habitat issues?

Parking there is free as we have national trust membership, but never looked at boat trailers....

There is a rather knackered slipway with a lot of sailing boats, which I assumed was a sailing club.

The Bay is very popular for all types of boats and there is no restrictions, to park there is free for NT members but turn up with a boat on a trailer and it will cost at least £20 member or not

The slipway and boat park are for general public and controlled by NT

Yep, definitely no limitations within Studland Bay itself - I often go there in both the sailing yacht and the RIB. Obviously there are certain marked swimming zones that should be avoided, but beyond that, just normal rules apply. You don't seem to hear much about the seahorses anymore, the voluntary no anchoring zone was only in place for ~1 year quite a while ago now, and no further restrictions since that I've seen.
