Insurance

Something to think about Tim, if your going to leave your boat in a marina. Check with your insurance comapny first. I wanted to do likewise but my insurance company (Mardon) will not cover boats under 16 foot left in a marina.

Looks like I will look elsewhere next year. It wasn't something I thought about when taking out the insurance but now I wish I had. Hindsight is a wonderful thing!

Just for information I'm insured through Heath Lambert Insurance Services (Tel: 0151 227 4321) - Not the cheapest around but I felt they offered the best cover AND they will insure a boat moored in a marina. I had to ask for this as a special endorsement as they did not offer it as standard. No increase in premium but excess increased to £250 (normally £125).

I'm with craftinsure.com and a quick glance over the terms tells me they will insure me. However, if anyone knows otherwise I would like to know!

After extensive research, I think I will stay at Nodes Point holiday park. It's near the harbour is is pretty cheap.
I just need to find out about putting the boat in the harbour now. I had a look at the Bembridge website, but there's nothing about the services avalible in the harbour it'self. I'm going to phone the Harbour master's office tomorrow, but can anyone here tell me things such as:
-Can I buy petrol in the harbour (or is there a petrol station really close).
-How much will it cost me to moor the boat
-Can anyone provide me with the tidal predictions for 26-29th July for Bembridge.
Also what are the tides in Bembridge like - how big is the window in which I could get in and out.

Thers no petrol in Bembridge as far as im aware.
I was about to say thing about the tides because it does dry out to nothing.
I think access is about 2 1/2 hours each side of high tide but it wasnt very deep in the channel when we went in about 2 hours after.

Tim, it's a pity you can't make the following week as I could run you to Tescos for fuel.

With regards to the entry, I would have thought that with your rib you would have no probs getting in at almost all states on your chosen dates as the tides are neaps. I can get in and out at everything but dead LW springs. Mind you, have had to paddle once or twice

Tides for 26-29 below.

That's very kind of you Ribald, but we want to go this week so we can go to the Portsmouth uni open day.

I might just take lots of extra portable tanks with me.
