Dry stack storage

Can anyone recommend any dry stack storage services, between Poole and Portsmouth.

So far Iím aware of;

Cobbs Quay Marina, Poole - I've used Cobbs a lot, great marina.

Poole Boat Park - No experience of them. Are they going to be around much longer anyway, what with the new bridge plans?

Drivers Wharf, Soton - Again, no experience of them really.

I believe thereís one in Portsmouth but I can't find anything on the net about it.

Thanks

Cheers Tim. Do you know if they actually rack the boats or just lift on and off trailers?

They have 2-high racks, but I think they also keep some boats on trailers.

There's also Haven Quay in Lymington

Hi Daniel,

Ken Brown's looks the business in Camber Dock, Portsmouth.
I suppose one of the big advantages is that you're right on the Harbour entrance really.

Oh and quite near Gunwharf Quays also

He will lauch and recover you as many times as you like for the set fee, and you only have to give an hours notice when you want your boat put in.

Thanks John, I hadn't thought of Lymington.

I'll give Ken Brown's a call in the morning.

How about indoor storage

Daniel, I'd be interested in having you as a customer at our facility. I have two spaces left and eventually am puting a stacking system indoors but at the moment we operate at ground level

We launch with a crane but if It's too windy we trail to the Slipway on our/your trailer

I think there are enough people on this forum that would vouch for our helpfulness and honesty, but I can give you the names and numbers of a couple of our customers if you need them for reference.

If this doesn't interest you then Ken Browns and Drivers are both good places the Lymington facility is excellent but seriously dear I believe

Oh yes....

Cheaper to keep your boat on a pontoon berth.
