Boat storage down South

I had this conversation with several people last night who, if I recall said they could sort out storage that wouldn't cost the earth. However I had a shandy too many and can't remember much else like who said what and how much it would be. This brings to my question......

I would like to keep my RIB down here in the Portsmouth area, on it's trailer. The storage place doesn't nessasserily have to be next to a slipway - I can tow it a few miles to a slip. Can anyone recommend anywhere which isn't going to require me to apply for a second student loan under a dodgy name with a fake passport?

Tim

Spoke to him and he (or one of his employees) was very helpful. They do a winter package which sounds good although it is pricey. The other issue if I go with him is that I will still have to find somehwere to store my trailer.

Another possibilty might be to rent a garage or something

calshot would be around 400 a year i suspect for your boat and the place has 2 slipways, but might be a bit of a drive from you, but will be a lot cheaper than ken browns

calshot is cheap and good slips but security is awful (10m rib stolen @2pm weekday once), insurance can be difficult and its the most miserable place in the world when winter comes, but my boats lived there for 3 years no probs

how much do you pay and for what sort of boat, did you get a parking ticket also for the car, My friend is there but has a 27 footer but wondered what it would cost for a smaller boat, am guessing around 400 as below, also do you know how much it costs to camp there with a caravan as that looks very handy

cheers

Tim when we spoke to Calshot in the spring they were full and said to talk to them at the end of the year. We have a year pass for slip and like it there easy to park, change rooms, wash down points for boats have a look at their web site.

Eastney Crusing Assosation finally got back to me yesterday. Apparenlty they have a waiting list for storage which would mean a several month wait. I'd have to pay £200 joining feee just to get on the list, so in theory I'd be paying just to wait. Then it would be another £314 or so a year for storage.

That does not sound too bad from some quotes i've had in the past.

At those prices thats why theres a waiting list ......

theres a number of guys here who keep their boats there and the club is nice and relaxed and friendly. From memory i think they have an electric winch also.
