boat too. instead of trailering it down every time.

I think here maybe 1 week minimum but cant be sure, only noticed it in passing, my boat is in the marina.

It used to be seaway marina, but im not sure if it is still as the office they had is now empty, however there are still signs for seaway around

02392 602722
07919050288

Out of interest. What is the slip/tides like at Haslar? Thinking of bringing the rib over for a few days to take my dad and brother out, make a change. Have launched from Fareham long long time ago but long way to sea!

non metalled, stone/gravel , need couple of hours above LT springs- that's just what i work on not sure of the official times.

just need to go direct out from slip don't cut the corner, bit of a ledge on both sides. Channel is marked, use middle span of bridge.

I've always launched 4 hours before HT and recovered no later than 3 hours after HT, come back a little earlier just in case there is someone fuffing around on slipway

When tide is out a little, I always draw an imaginary line between the slip and the end of the floating pontoon and use this as launch/recovery channel. About 20 degrees to the right of the end of the slip.

Thanks for the info, should be worth a trip over in the summer, i only get about 2.5 hours either side of HT in Rye so probably a bit more time to play!!

Solent Launching

We use the Public Hard at Warsash. Easy to launch and recover a couple of hours either side of Low Water. A good indicator is there are two yellow marker posts on the groyne - if water is above the post nearest to the road, it is more difficult to launch. Personally, I use a launching / recovery line, to avoid putting the car in the water. Can get a bit crowded on sunny weekends, especially late afternoon on a Sunday, if the tide is at the appropriate point. There is free parking a couple of hundred yards along Shore Road, including two bays specifically for trailers [wardens patrol and cars in these bays have tickets put on them].
Downside, is that technically you need to pay a launching fee to Harbour Authority - and this applies to any launch of power assisted craft in the Hamble River. I don't know what the daily rate is, as I pay annually [90]. I believe limited overnight mooring is available [for a fee] on the Harbour Masters pontoon - probably best to call and book.
Access to Solent area from here is good.

Swings and roundabouts here 5 was the fee being charged by the Harbour Masters I think, but free parking. At Haslar it's the car parking that's the expensive bit as you have to pay for the car and trailer, using the slip is free. That said however, if the trailer was there by its self, how are you going to attatch a ticket to it
