Solent slipways

cant believe there was 29 posts on slipway thread and nobody posted one, so on that note here's two in the river hamble both with free carparks for car and trailer, 1: warsash, right in front of the rising sun pub, best at low tide, lock your trailer on beach or in big carpark still attached 2: swanwick, down the side of premier marina(moodys) in shore rd, carpark right along side best at low tide, keep close to the markers

They're both on boatlaunch already, but might benefit from a bit more detail

And if you use the one at Warsach dont leave trailer on beach if at low tide, as the trailer needs to be up to the path by the sailing club. Very shallow slope if used at high tide so you could end up wading.

A very good slipway is the one at Hamble Point Marina but it costs about 30 pounds! It can be used about every tide level and a good steep ramp so you can lower boat on a rope if you need more depth. At very low springs the bottom of the concrete may just stop so you could wait half an hour.

i still disagree, when i worked for ribtec we launch all manner of stuff from the one at moodys, you've only got to have a quick look to suss it out and launch at low and both are fine, is there anywhere in pompey we can launch and park for nowt?

off the top of my head the one just outside port solent,but only at high tide. also you didnt say in your original post that the slips had to be free to use and park,obviously the ones you pay at are better

i didn't say they had to be free, but in this day and age with tight money i started with free ones, i know plenty of people who boat on a shoe string and 30 to launch could make the difference between going or not, and you think that slip at port solent is any better, loads of crap on it, only launch at high tide, 40 yards from the traffic lights on the a27 and block the main exit from port solent to get down it, you would have been better telling me camber docks that at least is only about 10 a day launch and car

camber as you say is not free so why mention it, yes port solent is free and is possibly the worst around and has as much crap on it as the the slip is crap,and i didnt say it was better did i.
