beach access

Hi there just wondering if anyone knows if you are able to launch a dinghy at seabird over the next few weeks, have done it in the middle of summer but not this time of year?

 I was up there a couple of weeks ago mate and the beach was still washed away from the winter swells. From the town access I think you'd be battling. I'm hoping to be up there again in the next week so could give you a better idea.

 Cool, if you're staying in

 Cool, if you're staying in the park then you can use the beach access just not the winch, but you won't need anyway with a tinny. My mate there has a 4.2 and gets it in and out a piece of piss.

 I might do that this year I

 I might do that this year I have always just put it in at the pub I've only got a 12 foot tinny so easy as just dump it on the beach and drag the front end round off u go.  Just as easy getting it back on. The misses comes out with me she freaks out abit when we are getting it out when I'm not in the boat and she is but she is happy once I jump in and get past the breakers we have had one near miss it certainly entertained the people watching they even gave us crays I think they felt sorry for her

 Ha ha always plenty of comedy shows on the beach with boats and cars, but don't worry I've played a starring role in a couple. It's the only way you learn. And yeah timing the breakers is a bit of an art.

 I will be up there this

Wed, 2017-10-18 06:53

 I will be up there this weekend cleaning the front yard up and putting new bearings in boat trailer. Will be back to seabird from 28/12 until the 2/1 so hopefully get into a couple of dhue's and Crays, can't wait. And yes it is easy to get caught out launching dinghy so let's hope the weather plays the game over the break or it's down to Moore river with the kids for a fish,good luck.
