as i am relatively new to this side of boats,i.e launch and retrieve,i am a little on the ignorant side, so please excuse me if i sound dumb, i am not really,
when you say small craft would that not include craft 5m and under, it also says 1/4 tide on the concrete ramp, i take it that would give me a window of around 3hrs before and after h/w, to launch and retrieve.

The main place along the Humber is Hessle foreshore.

You need a gate key though from the council as the access ramp is used by the inshore life boat.

You could change the order of the words in the title of this thread to "Humber on the estuary slipway" and it probably wouldn't change its meaning that much.

I am a bit like you new to the rib side of life I was just going on what it said on boar launch and then looked at google earth and it don't look good
Hessle under the bridge is about the best I would say never launched there but it's hard ground.

it does sound ok but, the but being is most of my needs will be at the estuary and seaward , i hope to be doing a lot of fishing for tope which can be big around that area,so hessle would be a fair trek by boat,hence the reason for looking at humberston, i have just been looking at saltfleet but sounds like it could be a little daunting,

Not sure whether it is good for your location or not but I've used the humber rescue slip in the past, directly under the bridge - chuck them a few quid and they will tractor launch and recover you. Plus ur supporting a valuable service.

that sounds like a good one mike thanks i will try that one for a fun day out,to fish from there is a long way to the sea so the further out the better, its just the fact i tow with a car, so launching from a beach is going to be out of the queestion ,unless their are facilities,i.e tractor or 4x4,they all seem to rely on the tides for the use of the slipway,may well have to go and launch at saltfleet haven and see how awkward it is to get to open water,then there is the access back over the sand bar should things take a turn for the worse,shame the coastgaurd slip on spurn is closed,or is it still there,does anyone know?
