Hi Phil and thanks for letting me know but I can't make that one I'm afraid. I'm next available 30th June to the 3rd of july inclusive.
Hope the trip goes well and we get a meet and a fish soon
All the best Andy

Just as an update this ramp is best Mid to High Tide at low time there is a flat area of rocks which makes for a difficult landing and retrieval.

I use to walk my dogs down there. When the water is out, isn't it really rockey in places?
The water doesnt look that deep when the tide is in.

I may have to give it a go as it was never busy down there

Yep pretty rocky at low tide, medium to high is fine though.
Rocks arnt masive just make it bumpy and block wheels if heavily loaded
Yes not the deepest of beaches, its just handy for Kingsmere Reef.

As we usually do a long day its not a problem to get tides right going out and in, needs some planning.
If we come back early I generally take outboard off and trolly it up the beach first
Its pretty easy for two to get the T38 up even over the bumpy rocks, but better to come in with the tide right

I am kinda interested if anyone fishes out of Littlehampton and if there are any free boat launch sites there

Were kind of limited for really good free launch sites on SE coast, all of the ones i have used have some down side.
Shingle being the worst. Plus Im cheap dont like paying for launching so I will put up with some hassle.

Also as I have said before I have a young Lump called Matt that does my heavy lifting, it would have to be a really easy concrete launch ramp and retrieve at all states of tide to go out alone, not that I would want to be alone enjoy fishing with a buddy.
