Hi there,
Fingers crossed we can still get up to Cooks Beach from Wellington in January. Keen to get some info on how best to get the boat (Reflex Chianti 485) on and off the water. Am comfortable beach launching if needed. Couple questions...
Do people routinely launch boats my size off the beach? How much does tide effect that? I have pulled boat/trailer out via a strop before if needed/practical.
Launching from the ramp looks like a good option however is that an option at all tides? Looks like it's long route out/in. Google earth has a good view of the route but keen to know if that is still current or if I should talk to a local prior?
Understand there's a daily charge for ramp access which is fine; no issue paying for convenience.

Thanks

Yes there is a ramp fee & is a rather sophisticated unmanned setup
re  space booking & payment. As far as I recall no problem ramp launching at any point of the tide but there is one point of the outlet that can rather shallow at low tide.

There may well be some public beach launching spots but don't recall seeing any & if so would probably be via tractor only.
Scored a much needed hair cut this morning so now on the way to Mitre 10 to take back the hedge trimmer !!
