Hi Neil,

For ref at PortE I pay around £90 for 6 months storage outside, there is security guards, CCTV etc. That includes use of the slipway. In the shed it's roughly double that.

If you find a farm that offers cheap barn space, let me know! Might consider it as well.

So any idea how one finds farmers who do this?

Just to finish off this thread - the boat has a new home... ...not really in the central belt - but we took her up to Linnhe Marine (between Oban and Fort William) on Friday and had a good day today playing around in Loch Linnhe.

They are as cheap there as Port Edgar - but somewhat more scenic and IMHO a bit friendlier.

Anyone else looking for pure storage might want to consider Nicolson Storage (on the way to Aberfoyle) - who were roughly the same price.

Linnhe Marine is a bit of an experiment for us to see if we use the boat more or less when its a bit of a treck away - and part of my cunning plan towards getting a bigger boat - which would be based on the West Coast.
