Its neaps this weekend so you should be ok. Have a look at this thread and drop Ian M a pm. He's well versed in the use of the slip at Lymington.

Trimix

If you want to launch at Calshot I will give you a hand both launching and recovering. I don't see any problem for you at Calshot with a bunked trailer.

If you decide on Lymington I'm sure PeterM or Landlord will help you.

Chris

Both are fine - Lymington has the advanatge of pontoons to make it easier to get crew etc on easily .

Calshot is wider and probably less 'crowded' , but is less user freindly after you're floating.

I'm not that fast - 23-25 is best cruising for the boat actually.

I can actually get up to about 50 if the boat is light - but then I start to have heart palpitations if I notice the fuel consumption.

OK, Im in.............

Lymington is probably eaiser for me due to it having a pontoon.

Then as long as Im back by 3 as you say, I should be home in enough time.

See you all there. From that thread you linked to earlier I see parking wont be an issue, especially as it not the holiday season.
