Slipway help- Gosport

I need to put a 6 mtr RIB in for Gosport area on Friday but tides re HW at about 0905hrs and Haslar has a two hr either side HW so may be tight for timing. Has anyone used the Alverstoke one and is this OK or like Haslar?

I know of Camber opposite but dont wish to trail there, so any other place I have missed for a reasonable daytime launch?

HT for Haslar is 09:30hrs Friday so latest recovery is +3hrs (12:30) can be later on a Neap, but you're risking it a bit.

Is the Alverstoke one you talk of, where GAFIRS is based (Fort Gilkicker) and goes out into the Solent? If so then it's full tidal.

If it's another one that goes out into the Harbour I would suspect it's got a narrow tide window.

Gosport Boatyard, just, less than a stones throw North of Premier Gosport any good?

I have a mate who launches his jetski there, he has a boat in Premier, so dead handy.

Isn't that slip a 1/3 Tide slip and very narrow. I'm guessing you're thinking crane here?

Ian, there are a couple of slips around there but GAFIRS has the best access. None of them has a pontoon as far as I know which can make things more complicated if you're solo.

Hightower- I was told a two hour window either side of Haslar am I wrong?

HT, I wasn't no. But crane will work if all else fails, and they're not too busy......Sure they will advise in the morning.

I have been craned out, and in, and out, and in (and a few more times at that time too!)when I caught a net coming back from Guernsey, but that's another story!( Not a RIB)

Found this too, few more options maybe. http://www.gosport.gov.uk/sections/y...blic-slipways/

That's a very safe window that most people use.

I can launch up to 4hrs before HT and recover 3hrs after HT in most tides. However I always tend to return 2.5hrs before just in case someone's recovering.

You get slightly longer to recover on a Neap but obviously on Big Springs I'd want to be back in plenty of time

Hardway looks a possible, if Haslar fails, Weather for Friday shows 30knts so lookig at easy option rather than blast round

Sorry to disappoint, but Hardway has an even narrower window than Haslar. The only slip that has better access than Haslar in Portsmouth Harbour is Camber. That is until Trafalgar Wharf is dredged out. Obviously if you crane then there are a few more options.
