Yup. Its a bummer, and I can only advise caution and make the judgement when you are there to see it. Yachties have the advantage that they sleep on their boats and are able to monitor it and deal with any problems before they become serious. They are usually quite amicable to letting you put lines to their boat to prevent surging forwards or backwards.

Launching every day is not a huge problem except that the tractor driver probably goes home about 7 o clock.

fishing boats are designed to use harbours - rock solid permanent fendering all over the place - inboard engines with no exposed props etc.

A Rib is not made to be lashed against a stone wall with metal bits sticking out of it. they are particularly difficult to fender at the bow and the stern due to the shape and the tubes. whilst they don't need any impact protection they are very vulnerable to abrasion and piercing.

Roy

lots of small boats are kept there by local owners, ribs, speedboats, shetlands etc etc and not just the local fishing boats. they are kept on long ropes tied to bouys and submerged chains and to the wall. It is these that i am referring to. they are nowhere near the wall!! have a look next time you are over there and you will see what i mean.
