Batson Creek Salcombe[slipway] - Boatlaunch

For visits in the summer I usually phone up to book a space in the trailer park (for the car) and the trailer area for the trailer and then pay in advance. This means that unlike the large Batson creek car park, you have a numbered space to return to later if required (costs slightly more for the week, but worth it for us).

Will drop in as we pass Cookee but not till April so don't let the kettle get cold.

I'll try Salcombe next week and check the cost.

Yep!! Also where a wife took revenge by drilling a whole in the hull of her husbands Yaught,sinking it on it's mooring.She found out he was ''Spliceing the mainbrace'' with his mistress on board
We were down there when the police divers were searching the Yaught!..They did find the Husband safe (ish) and dry later.
