Do canals have slipways to launch and recover your own small boat?

Hi,Are there any canals, other than the very large shipping ones, that have slipways to enable you to launch and recover your own small boat for a day trip or is the assumption that your boat will always be on the canal for many months thus provision only of cranes and slings to launch and recover boats? The boat would be too heavy to lift and manhandle into the water let alone attempting to remove it complete with engine etc.Thanks


chiffon, is sheer and extremely light
cotton is the thinest material but silk would probs be coolest.
If each fabric was measure out to be equal in size, I would have to say silk.
JPC Equestrian has launched a new classic knee patch style breech made from lightweight Dryarn fabricMade from the lightest yarn, lighter even than water, Dryarn helps maintain the body temperature and has other significant advantages of great benefit and comfort to the rider: thats what i foundso i guess DRYARN.
Unless you are at a basin or turning point no they will not, they were not built for tourists in dingies they were built for the purpose of transporting goods in narrowboats pulled by horses both to the inland, and getting export goods to the coastIn the canal systems heyday the road network we have now did not exist! In most basins there are cranes capable of lifting your boat, they are also capable of lifting a 60 ft oak built narrow boat, so i doubt yours would be a problem!
