BE careful with the mud here if you try and recover off the end of the slipway at low tide.

I saw a speed boat leave it too late to recover, and the trailor went into the thick mud at the bottom of the slipway. Two 4x4's tried to get the boat out, with no luck. The owners had to come back when the tide came back in.

I dont find this slipway too hard to launch or recover from, yes there is a bit of wake when the Red Jets go by, but they only go by every 30 minutes.
