It's not too bad if you're local, but added to a 3 hour drive is going to be a pain.

Southampton Drystack or Drivers Wharf would definitely be worth considering.

Got my storage sorted.



Caravan place a few miles away. Having launched at Lymington at the weekend it was lovely ( if a little breezy!!) but I guess a bit of a pig most Saturday's in high season.

Now looking at other launch sites.

Possibly crosshouse, priory or hythe?

Erm...


And a VERY embarrassing question..... What's the "nacho run."

I've tried to search its meaning and failed.

Calshot spaces are up for renewal, they run from April to April, so may be a good time to check for space.
I store at Calshot and was there in the week, there wee empty spaces.
