Changes to launching in Warsash?
I normally launch from the public slipway opposite the Rising Sun pub in Warsash. I usually get the family to use the new “fishermans” pontoon to hold the rib whilst I go and park the car and trailer etc. It is also a safe and convenient way of getting passengers on and off the RIB.
I notice that there is now a sign at the entrance to the fishermans pontoon saying that “no unauthorised persons are allowed beyond this point”, which I take to mean that it can no longer be used? They have also put a gate at the top of the bridge leading to the short term berths behind the Harbour Masters office, so no picking up from there?
Any of you local guys know anything about this as if this is correct it going to make launching from there a whole lot harder in the future?
