I keep and launch my rib at Northney marina on Hayling Island. Very impressive facility with toilets, showers, chandlery etc. Good concrete ramp with temporary pontoon mooring......no getting wet when launching or retrieving. Plenty of car/trailor parking all for around 16.
I regularly cruise to the I.O.W. and from the marina, Bembridge is around 1 hour, Ryde around 1hour 15mins and Cowes 1hour 30mins.
Facilities at Ryde are good....plenty of good guest houses, pubs entertainment etc inc. super beach.
Bare in mind though that Ryde sands make access to the harbour impossible for a couple of hours either side of low water so very important to plan your crossing with the tides firmly in mind otherwise several hours of your trip will be spent looking at where you want to be from a sand bank! Strongly advise use of a chart or GPS......don't be fooled by the hovercrafts......different rules!!!!

I'd go for Warsash as parking is free and even in high season it's still a breeze to launch. The car park is overlooked by a pub and so pretty safe. I believe you can park overnight.

Have fun
