Theres a place in Cowes which I think is run by Tim Griffin on here now. I also belive he's quite reasonable.

Depends how clean you mean pop? If you want a top notch job, have a word with daveh, (www.boatcareuk.com,) they just done a first rate job on my 10 yr old Avon 560D.. The tubes have never been cleaner, and the hull has been polished beyond my expectation.. All round excellent work, and not that expensive.. Dave's over at Ribex for the weekend, why not nip down and see what sort of work they do..

Although from a camera phone, you can see the reflection of the trailer towards the front of the hull..

Dave is doing some very special offers for RIBs and hull polishes at RIBex. Well worth having a word.

If you are after a lift and scrub type deal. Then Drivers Worf are the cheapest in the Solent and damn nice people too!

the cowes one is one of those underwater boat scrubbers. Not sure that Tim G is involved with it is he? Sure he'll put the record straight.

You could pop (no pun intended) over to yarmouth and crane out and jet wash it off (you can hire a jetwash at the harbour too).

Not sure how a Rib drys out, but you could give it abit of a scrub for free by drying out at Bemridge on the beach. Having said that a big Scorp would prob lean over onto one side, and even with some form of beaching legs the majority of the hull may not be accessible.
