Having bought an inflatable air deck dinghy (3.2m) and fitted transom wheels (Ceredi 10"), can anyone recommend places to launch single-handed?
One launch so far from Steamer Quay at Totnes - large paid car park, plenty of space to inflate without attracting too much attention and relatively easy public slipway available 3/4 tide. The negative is that there's a 6 knot limit and its a long way from Dartmouth!
Stoke Gabriel approx. 1 hour / 5.5 miles.
Paying circa £20 for use of some slips feels too much for a 3.2m 40kg dinghy and 6hp o/b.
Anyone launched from Paignton (next to Redcliffe Hotel)? Or Goodrington Sands - has a slip to beach?
I don't want to turn up, spend 30 mins inflating and prepping only to find I can't manage dragging through sand especially now the area is busy with onlookers!
Brixham slip looks appealing. Does the harbour master charge for hand launches?
Any advice would be welcome.
