Welcome acidcloud! I hope you have lots of great adventures with the boat you've bought.

I got an F-RIB a few weeks ago for fishing with my old man and have launched 4 times so far. My old man's based near Bexhill on similar shingle beaches to Brighton.

The biggest pro with my beach launches so far is of course speed of getting onto the water. There's a popular windsurfing spot near us where the road is next to the shingle.

Cons are that transom wheels dig into the shingle badly. I end up man-handling the outboard up/down the beach separately which is quite a workout on the shingle banks, and that's with a comparatively light 38kg 15hp Johnson 2-stroke. Douglas on this forum recommended a boat dolly with balloon wheels, which is on the shopping list for some point in the future.

The other challenge I've found being an ex-sea kayak fisher and relative novice to boating is launching and beaching off/on shingle with a bit of surf. Unlike a kayak, you can't just ride a wave into the shingle and it takes a bit more care, jumping out and dragging the boat to shore trying to avoid getting swamped and flipped in surf.

Unless really good weather has been forecasted, the above results in me getting a bit twitchy when out at sea fishing trying to speculate if the waves are picking up and are going to make beaching and recovering the boat safely an issue. I tried the slip in Rye Harbour for my last launch, which was much easier, but expensive at £14. There's one in Eastbourne too, but I believe that's £25 to use on the weekend!

Interested to hear how you get on and if you find any decent launching sites. My experience to date using boatlaunch.co.uk is that our stretch of coast isn't particularly well catered for with slips. I don't believe you can launch from Brighton harbour, but facilities pick up significantly around Chichester and Portsmouth.

Sorry guys was away in Portugal.

My supplier now has a new Suzuki 20 hp in and T38 in end of this week.
also been offered a 2 year old 2nd hand Suzuki 20 hp with less than 10 hours but owner hasnt got first service need to find out implications and whether warranty can be rescued.

Live in Rottingdean ( Brighton) be using a E320 estate and initial launching thoughts are ,

1. use rear launching wheels and walk down ramp to Undercliff and beach at Rottingdean , Main beach is not too steep
and has sand as well as shingle ( not an option on busy days too many people)
2. use rear launching wheels and walk down ramp to Undercliff and beach at Saltdean ( better option as its to the east of the busy area)
4. Seen SIPs launched form beach between Brighton pier and Marina ( Blackrock carpark at beach level if you get there early and park car on beach front ). There were two SIBs hammering mackerel just off beach few weeks ago, both beach launched.
3. There's a slipway at Emerald Quay in Shoreham on Sea.
4. Also there's Seaford where you can park up close to beach

Also ordered a Bravo 20 High Pressure Rechargeable 12v Pump so can inflate on the beach.

Re: New Member - Brighton- Got the Outboard

Postby acidcloud » Sat Jul 22, 2017 4:35 pm

Picked up my Outboard today a 2 year old Suzuki DF20A which has only done 10 hours so its off for a service and get it registered to me.

Looks like a new on so hope service goes ok, Service centre thought it was a good buy for the price.
