You don't appear to have anything to say!!
Forget taking the BBQ on the boats, couldn't put up with all that clanking everytime I hit a wave.
What I was proposing was recovering the RIBs, I live fairly local (Fareham). I was going to drop the RIB home and collect the BBQ stuff, food and Drinks, drive back to "lets say" Stokes Bay and set up a nice little get together. Have you thought how everyone is going to keep their BBQ food and beer cold? If its 26c and you keep it in a car all day you won't need to BBQ it!
Anyway food for thought! Lets just see what happens on the day.
Here's the info on Haslar:

Cars must be moved elsewhere. Speak to the marina and it should be possible to use their car park if you take a day berth. Also you can then use their toilet and shower facilities.About the rampShingle and mud hard. Dodgy below half tide but maybe possible with a 4x4. Also need to take into consideration the air draught below the bridge to get into the marina and out to sea. Only about 1.5 metres clearance at high tide.Cruising areaPortsmouth and the Solent
