Solent slipways with tap for flushing?

I just realised I've got a minor problem-I can't get my new boat into the garage to flush it til I sell the sr4...so I'm restricted to launching/retreiving places where there's a tap to flush. Are there any that have one in the Solent?

Matt,

Might be easier to buy a long hose pipe. Alternatively you can come home via my house and use my hosepipe.

NR.

Cheers for the offer Nick but you'll still be in the Lightship when we recover won't you?

I've got a hose long enough to flush here but it's not really safe for the boat to do it unless I can get into the garage with it due to the high volume of chav teenagers who come past.

If I can get out on the water early enough I'll be coming in the same time as you.

Hamble point has a good one, although the launch fee ££ is a bit steep... the tap and very long hose is at the top right side of the slip.

apart from on one occasion, I've always find it quite relaxing launching there probably as there's lots of space and nobody gets in anyone way ...

I suppose the other alternative is to plug into a tap at a service station

I bet they wouldn't like that much...
