They do, but unless they happen to have a boat in the area the delivery charge is going to hurt!

Indeed, I think I'll have to either disappoint my guests or risk further damaging my engine. I've been assured on here, and by an outboard mech in Ireland, that the engine won't fall off and that probably the worst we can expect is a bent gear linkage so I'm inclined to go for the latter.

Thanks for the replies tho.

The chap I spoke to today when I chased it up said it was out of the question and that you had to join the club "because of the regulations". The fact that Seawake appear to be running this club format suggests that this might be true.

For what its worth the wording on the marineclub website is a bit misleading too: "Marine Club membership is 500 which then counts as credit towards days out. For example a Ribeye 600 would cost as little as 150 for a half day, you just pay for fuel used"

The chap I spoke to this morning said that actually, out of your initial 500 quid, only 250 of it counts towards days out. I might have been prepared to spend 500 on two days out, specially since the Ribeye 600 is a possible next boat for us, but not 500 for a day.

The web site is v misleading. Try and say you'll hold them to it!

"Give me two days for 500" or I'll take it further....

It's there branding on a uk web site, I'd guess normal commercial rules apply. Tag in a shop says 20, get to the till and they say 40, they're screwed!!

Well firstly membership is almost certainly at their discretion. Secondly you've misunderstood consumer law. I've not read the ts and cs but it's very unlikely that you'd win the argument, and more likely that having paid your money and made a fuss are pointed towards the door.

Life's too short. In any case, starting off a business relationship (two seperate trips remember) like that is unlikely to end well.
