The car park (town quay) next to the red jet and hythe ferry terminal is pay and display but not too expensive IIRC.

Parking Southampton

There is parking at the end of Town Quay. and also if you drive past Town Quay there is Triangle Parking . Both take credit cards. Both parks get very busy when there are events in Cowes. Town Quay is where the Jets leave from.

Ocean car park at ocean village is very good. Has won awards. Well lit and clean. 5 minute walk from town quay.

Use the council car park on the high street just opposite Town Quay. It is cheaper that the other two, if you overstay you get a 30 fine (if they catch you) no clamping, 150 fines or towing away). 5 mins walk from ferry maximum, much nearar than OV.
Or just pay and display in French street, google it. Also 5 mins...

How long can you stay in these car parks - I'm parking later today and leaving Sun pm or Mon am?

Don't know about the pay and display ones, but suspect they're limited in time.

The Ocean village car park is a covered multi-storey. I've used it in the evening and been impressed with the lighting, security. They have daily charges, so presumably can stay for several days, e.g. see:

(which is referring to the ocean car park mentioned

All day in the Council one on High Street, think about 7 and you can use a card on the machine. Its your best bet
