Boat storage in Portsmouth area

As many of you will know I'm starting at Portsmouth uni in September. I am intending to bring one of my RIBs with me. Can anyone tell me a good place in or very near Portsmouth where I can keep a RIB (either 3m or 4.1) on it's trailer. I will have my car down there too so can launch my self. Odviously somewhere that's secure is essential. What am I likley to have to pay for storage like this?

Tim

NOt an easy one! THere arent many houses with garages in pompey. I'm keeping mine temporarily at Southsea Marina - thats cost 2.80/day (short term deal) and its on a trailer on the hard. I'm sure either the place where the uni sail - (Tudor SC) or somewhere similar would do a deal

Try Northney marina Hayling Island
The slip is useable at any state of the tide good washing down and a secure trailer park and if you time you launch you can get out to the solent under Hayling Island bridge and out though eastney I dont know what the storage charge is though.

My boat is at Northney, as someone else mentioed the facilities are good. Check MDL web site, as example i pay about 1100 quid a year but that for a 7.5, it get a little cheaper as the lenght goes down per meter

At Hythe (MDL) the minimum length is around 5.5m, even for short stay!
