S coast storeage and launching.

Living some distance from the coast, I am eager to find secure storeage close to a reasonable launching site in the E Solent area. I'm looking for a bigger boat so I want to reduce the towing distance. But what I've seen so far looks rather expensive.
Can anybody recommend a suitable facility between, say, Langstone Harbour and Southampton?

Eastney Cruising Association sits on the enterance to langstone harbour. Its on the Porstmouth side. Its a club and so a waitlist for boat storage, and you have to apply for membership. However its cheap as a result. However the Club may have stopped letting none local people from joining, I am not sure. Give them a ring ....

Richard, You could see what Jonny boys is charging for Thornham Marina in Emsworth, although it doesn't have ful tidal access. Alternatively Drivers Wharf in Northam, Southampton is cheap and chearful. Launching by crane so no troubles with trailers and slipways etc.

I think you need to have a recommendation from an exisiting member to get into the Eastney Cruising Asso and yes there is a waiting list.

Storage & Launching

Hi Richard,

Welcome to the forum. You might also consider Camber Dock lift & Shift. Haslar Marina Gosport side, Port Solent if you are very rich!!!! Southsea Marina (not all Tide states). The ECA is good and relatively cheap, if you would like more info send PM i am a member.

Talk also to Stuart AKA the Wavehumper he is Southampton.

Hope this is helpfull.

Cheers Kevin.

Thank you good people for your quick and helpful advice. ECA does have some space for summer use. The ramp is said to be good for all tide conditions. It's well placed for my commute. I've asked for the necessary forms!
