New to ribs, new to forums

Hi i have just purchased myself an Avon adventure 620.
I live in bransgore and will have the boat in storage near my house.
I will probably be launching from mayors mead in Christchurch and just wondered what parking with a largish trailer is like on a busy day. As after transporting from bransgore i would be gutted to have to turn away so close.
I have tried to secure a spot at rossiters but as expected the waiting list is quite large atm.
So just looking for any info or any tips.
As I'm really keen to get out when sensible.

Thanks in advance
Jordan

Thanks Maximus. First outing today, and it was choppy out there to say the least but nice to know she can handle it.

Now if we all pray for some nice weather, hopefully it will come.

I've launched at Mudeford a few times before. Parking is a killer but you can often hide the trailer away on the beach, just lock it up well. Avoid a few hours either side of low tide for getting in and out. I normally find a tidal level of 1m + works ok there to scrape in and out, literally scraping though
