One other problem with marina's........

is that you are then "forced" generally to have to buy expensive marina petrol (usually around £1 a litre!) as opposed to filling up at Tesco's etc etc. That is if you are fortunate enough to be in/near a marina that does actually sell petrol!

My preference is for storage at a convenient location be that home or possibly at the marina or nearby & within convenient trailing distance of a petrol station.

I actually have a problem inasmuch as I don't have any room at home (on street parking) and the nice secure and cheap place I have to keep the RIB is 25 miles away IN THE WRONG DIRECTION! (I leave approx 8 miles away from the nearest practical slipway.)

So this is a really, really long shot but anyone know of a farm/caravan storage park/kind person with a big drive in the Maldon Essex area who would like to make a modest income storing our boat for us!

In hope rather than expectation! Alan

Ask around...

I live a 100 miles from the place where I launch my boat...
I went around asking farmers (with big barns!) for a place to keep the boat! Found one as well, 2 miles from the slipway!

I pay him 100 Euro a year and he feels bad about accepting it! Now I can combine launching the boat with buying vegetables, making him and my girlfriend happy and probably save the very same 100 Euro I gave him...

In short: Go there and ask around! Lots of people with lots of unused space and not afraid of a bit of loose change...

Eddy (who's looking forward to his veggies for the first time in his life!)

baixamar

i live in Cascais and during this winter i´m leaving my rib in the marina in Cascais .The price(not as cheep as Lisbon) during this time of year is afordable (during summer i think it almost triples) my house is 3km frm the marina so i get there real fast (not on sunny sundays) this alows me to go for a quick ride any time ,and even alows me to go to Lisbon or Sesimbra for the nigth because i dont have the problem of the time table of the winch for recorver.of corse i had to put the anti-fouling on the hull (someone forgot the ballons but it is beeing taken care of now).before this i use to launch it in Sesimbra and leave it there for the weekend, but it was p****s on sundays the way back and for more i dont have a place for it at home.My only problem at the moment is to go to the marina when it rains to take the water out ,but i prefer like that

Sessimbra

Ola Andre & Baixamar,

Last year I met some people from Lisboa when I was diving near Lagos.
They told me how nice it was to dive in Sessimbra. Now I am thinking about trailering the boat to Portugal next year (I am almost every year a month or so in Portugal ) to dive and cruise.

Can you tell me where I can find a slipway to launch the boat in Sessimbra? I am not sure wether you are also divers, but if so then maybe you could also give me a few dive spots there or the name of a good dive operator?

Looking forward to your reply!

Obrigado adiantado e cumprimentos dos Paises Baixos.

Eddy

Hi Eddy!

Sorry, I do not have any practical information for you, because this will be my first boat (it is already ordered ).
I am planing to go to some marinas near me, to make a survey and to have a look with "ribster eyes"!

Meanwhile I can give you some links (most of them in portuguese, sorry):


Sesimbra marina (Portuguese)
http://www.edinfor.pt/anc/ancm-sesim.html

Clube naval de Sesimbra (Portuguese)
http://www.naval-sesimbra.pt/f_club.html

Berlengas (Portuguese)
http://www.scubaportugal.com/Divesho...Sanctuary.html

Diving Information (English / Portuguese)
http://www.scubaportugal.com/

Nautilus Sub Diving Club (Portuguese)
http://www.nautilus-sub.com/


Berlengas are a nice small island to dive (it is near Peniche, at north of Lisbon). But you have to be lucky to have a nice sea to go there.


André
Thanks for your help. It seems that Cascais marina is made only for persons with a lot of money. Even the use of slip is expensive


bye
Pedro

Rainwater

Andre,

You could try a small electric bilge pump wired to the battery (via a fuse) and sited in the rear well with a hose discharging over the transom. This would pump out the water after rain.
