Tidal Thames visitor moorings for 3.8m Bombard Aerotec SIB


To load the Ka, unload the boat and 25hp motor, inflate and launch at Broomhouse Drawdock, Fulham, go out, get cold, have lunch to warm up, deflate, load the Ka, unload the Ka in one day is proving a bit much.

Any ideas for paid Saturday overnight moorings or weekend or a week mooring in and around Fulham. The pier masters are prooving difficult to reach and not very interested so far, including Imperial Wharf Pier.

Also interested in moorings overnight in Greenwich, Southend, Woolwich, Gravesend and Richmond for weekend adventures.

Preparewto pay a reasonable fee but struggling. One option I thought of might be a mooring up alongside arrangement for a houseboat for extra income? Other tgan that a simple overnight berth.

Tidal Thames visitor moorings for 3.8m Bombard Aerotec SIB

Chiswick Pier is one of the few places with regular visitor moorings on the tidal Thames

There are marinas further down river but they are expensive and have a limited tidal window (St Katherine Docks, South Dock, Limehouse Basin, Poplar Dock). Yacht clubs like Greenwich or Gravesend might be worth a try.

I like your idea of sweet talking a friendly boat owner, and with a SIB you would probably have a better chance than with a larger boat.

I will ask a friend of mine, he lives aboard a mobile welding barge on the upper reaches of the Thames and knows pretty much everything there is to know about this stretch.

Dove pier is worth trying, last time I was there it was owned by a couple who were quite amenable.

South Dock will let you have an overnight berth, not sure of prices. You have to lock in and out but this is free and all quite easy.

Also worth trying Chas Newens Marine at Putney - they have a number of swinging moorings (and a small yard just by the river).

Good luck!
