Well coming from your neck of the woods you should know the Ports reputation, most boat owners who drive down through the port even on the main road to get to the kip marina usually are a blur
Theres no way I'd take a canoe up ther to launch and recover never mind a boat, always go that wee bit extra down the road and launch at cardwell bay at gourock at least, not the cleanest of slips but safer by all means.
Or even better go down to the kip and sort out a key from them for the slip way
Sorry to hear tho that the jealousy of the minority in the port has sadened another day out for folk, it aint a bad place, just like any where esle really in this age
ps i aint some posh boaty twit from down the villages I am from greenock
