Thanks for the info John - might investigate other slipway options if Levington's too busy. Do you know of any other possibilities nearby since I'm not familiar with that area?

Keith - family arrangements? Oh do behave, you're the one who started this all off, besides which they now have 10 days in which to make other arrangements

Phil

I can't vouch for any other launch sites on the Orwell.
Iam still exploring myself.
Have a look at Felixstowe Ferry (mouth of Deben) but you may need a 4x4.

Good Luck

John

It'd cost more than a Volvo XC90 just to replace its tyres

Levington is no problem at any state of the tide,have'nt launched at Felixstowe Ferry since I had my Fletcher (sorry for swearing) about 15 years ago.I think you have to pay to park in the car park these days aswell.very strong tide runs there, and the waters not very deep to launch. stick with Levington theres a tap for washing boat and flushing engine out.cost is £12.00 Per launch but it's cheaper to get a season ticket from April-end of October for £120.00.hope some of you Ribbers are going to make it down to Levington over the Bank Holiday Week-end??????

Daniel, following an extraordinary sitting of the sub-5m committee this evening, it has been decreed that on this occasion you will be permitted to join the cruise, on the proviso that at no point will you exceed 2500rpm or pour scorn and derision on RIBs restricted in their ability to go quickly due to lack of horsepower. Failure to adhere to these guidelines will render participation in future sub-5m cruises void.

The committee looks forward to welcoming you at Levington.
