All good ideas! My thinking was keeping the mooring/hard fees to a minimum. Keeping it folded in the boat yard would only cost a small amount. Our moorings at Greenwich are unsatisfactory as the Thanes clipper commuter boats have caused our wet moorings to become dry by depositing shingle further up the foreshore. Then at low tide people walk along the beach. I wouldn't like some of those youth near my sponson or engine. Maybe it's a London thing.
Maybe an aluminium work boat would be better. Still I might indulge in one sib and it can be more mobile without the hassle of trailering. It just appeals to me, I like the simplicity.
Still I have yet to launch it yet.
We had an Avon searider in my last unit and I fancy something a bit different.
