When we went to the Bugle the other week, we tied up alongside the public pontoon and weren't charged.
There was a sign saying there's a (small) charge if you stay over a certain period, but we had a look for the harbour master (who wasn't there) and headed to the pub anyway. We were probably there for an hour or so and we watched the harbour master come and go. He'd gone again by the time we got back to the boat (not deliberate). We'd have paid if there was someone there to pay!! Seems to be a similar set up to Town Quay in Cowes.
But with it being a punblic pontoon, there were kinds with fishing rods hanging around. Hmmmm hooks and inflatable boats.....
