Advice please re moorings in Salcombe

My boat has always lived in one place but we are now planning to take it on holiday to Salcombe on 8 July. Please could I have some beginners advice on :-

-booking a mooring (pref on a jetty or pontoon not stuck out on a bouy)
-booking slot for slipway use & ideally help so we dont balls it up
-availability of petrol & security
-possibility of a Salcombe area local fellow ribber from this group helping us for decent financial reward
Thanks guys, Ivan

> Telephone the harbour office - most of the pontoon and buoyed moorings had gone a few months ago when I talked to them, but there are additional visitors berths for boats up to 4.2m just off Whitestrand Quay. Salcombe Harbour

-booking slot for slipway use & ideally help so we dont balls it up
> Not possible - just turn up !

-availability of petrol & security
> There is a fuel barge in the harbour or a local garage at the top of the hill in Salcombe if you have fuel cans

-possibility of a Salcombe area local fellow ribber from this group helping us for decent financial reward
> Sorry - I'm not local, just a visitor for many summers

Think it will have to be a bouy but you may have some luck with the new pontoons in Batson!

Good slip at the boat park with attendant no booking needed but dose get very crouded, if you need help I would just ask other users of the slip!

-availability of petrol & security
Petrol avalible on the water at fuel barge this was 1.95 when down at Easter I tend to use Jerry cans from garage at top of hill!
Security I have never had a problem with, just keep things out of sight!

-possibility of a Salcombe area local fellow ribber from this group helping us for decent financial reward
Sorry not down then! Have fun.

Thanks guys, Ivan

I live in Salcombe and build boats up the road - might be around on that date - 07836 268747 we were all numpties once so happy to help if I'm free.

What the others said is all good.

You might be better off trying to book a place to park the boat and trailer on dry land when not in use as it's only small but if you want a mooring you can also try Reddish marine, Blue Water, or Yeowards.

salcombe

many thanks for the tips, especially Cookee. We've decided now to hire a sports boat down there for a few hours each day, and found someone to hire from. Saves a lot of hassle & means we wont end up with the car in the quay or the boat tipping onto the M5!
