3,000.00 for a pontoon berth to take a 9.0m x 3.0m rib on the Clyde
thats for the whole 12 months
How does that compare with down south?

I too think that Dry Run has set his prices pretty competitivley. When you factor in the service costs of the trailer, parking tickets for the car and trailer,costs for using a slip, costs of towing the trailer (possibly 10/100 miles), not having to anti-foul and not having to spend fuel getting to the Solent playground and the convenience factor.

And to give a more balanced view: Obviously one negative would be the increase in price when you fill the RIB up with Barge fuel as opposed to Garage forcourt fuel.

Reading the advice of how to remove ones boat from a Raft made me chuckle....Add wind and tide!.....It's rarely that simple for one person!

Take your point, but The Inner Camber is a very sheltered bit of water, well protected from wind and tide! Glad we made you chuckle though!

It is if everyone put lines out to the pontoon instead just tying up to the boat they're rafted to. Like thats ever going to happen
