It's actually Southwark Council who set the charges
Because it's Southwark Council who own and run the marina.
The trouble is that they are not really geared up to using the crane as a launch and retrieve method for small boats, and they see it just as a boatyard tool. For occasional maintenance lifts, once every year or two, it's still expensive but people just have to live with it. For a weekend it's madness!
If they decided to they could make South Dock a serious option for trailboaters and do very well out of it. I like the place a lot, but with the current pricing structure I wouldn't crane a RIB in there.
