Cornwall Advice

Can anyone point me in the direction of moorings (for 6m rib) or boat and trailer storage in North Cornwall?..moorings in Newquay are like rocking horse poop and cant seem to find anywhere close that's secure or reasonably priced.... anyone with insider knowledge on moorings on the coast would be bought lots of beers..otherwise it'll be premier marina in Falmouth

Just popping out for an ice cream. I might be persuaded to part with a little local info later.

OK, for starters, I wouldn't base my ribbing on the North coast. It's wild and spectacular, but with Atlantic swell and few very tidal ports, it's not the best for boating. The South coast, on the other hand, is perfect. Left or right out of Falmouth, the options are endless. Definitely don't bother with Premier. Mylor is a much nicer facility and cheap if approached correctly. Also in Fal there's Port Pendennis Marina or the Harbour Master run Yacht Haven.

The local fishermen in St Mawes aren't overly keen on outsiders "coming down 'ere..."

Newquay is a beautiful piece of coastline, unfortunately it has been well and truly 'Costa'd'. It's not representative of true Cornwall.

Or even, 'Coming over 'ere' from Penryn.

Newquay ? didn't that used to be a part of cornwall

You wouldn't need a mooring there , just ride shotgun in the rib while you sit in the traffic jam to keep the chavs away
