brought the boat up here a week ago and very impressed so far. Yard has plenty of turning space ....proper gated security ....cameras all around the yard .....good slipway for easy launching ...nice clean toilet facilities which will impress Mrs DL. very reasonable storage rates
a quick call and the boat is lauched and recovered. cant believe how non stressful this is
Mark and the guys really pleasant to deal with ....they are also taking out moorings at Loch Lomond for next season.
Located in Silvers marine with huge buildings its easy to navigate back.

just a happy customer all round. well worth a visit if your in the locale

Also had a good look around the clyde rib .... thats a really nice craft

regards

Ian

Thats good to know Ian, what sort of rates do they charge ? I didnt bother with Largs dry berth this year because of what they wanted, and there was no come and go for part season use, supposing you only used the service for 2 months, they still wanted a full years fee

Ian, is it dry stack in the sense that they have on south coast - with forklift type launching or do they just have a tractor and dunk your trailer (which dilutes the benefit). Strikes me they are kind of in the wrong place for "easy access" though - someone doing this at either Greenock or Helensburgh would surely make more ? Unless they run a "water taxi" service...

I'm guessing it's this option, but at 950 a year for all launching and recovery included as well as storage, seems a bargain to me. Compared to down here, anyway. Buy (or in Ians' case, make) a launching trailer, and keep the road trailer for taking her somewhere, and you're well away.

speak with Mark ....they are very approachable and easy to deal with ...the yard is very well setup and the slipway is good for 3hrs either side of high water......or you just use a mooring and they have a little rib for ferrying you to your boat.....

Polwart,
drystack as in forklift no although they do have a cracking forklift, actually something that i never asked .....own trailer or cradle .....i think i will make my own if there isnt one available and keep the trailer good as Neil suggests. I dont feel its in too bad a position .......another 20mins in car from helensburgh wasnt really a big deal for me.......what i like are the facilities and my RIB is kept indoors......for the price no-one can match as far as i can see.

I

I thought it would take more than 20 mins extra? although H'burgh is already further for me than you. Google reckons it would take me 1hr 50mins. (AA/RAC actually think longer). I suppose without the trailer it does allow for some more "spirited" driving.

I agree the sub 1k per annum price is good and less than you would pay for say a 6m rib on a marina berth, with the convenience and none of the hastle/antifouling etc. If I get a bigger rib (is Mrs P listening to the hints?) then it would be a serious possibility. That ClydeRib on Brokerage looks good value too.

Give us all Mrs P's email and we can send her half hourly "Polwart needs a RIB!" messages

If there is one person on here I wouldn't give her email to - it you!

She has started clever tricks like "I really like the boat we've got" and "that boat has never really cost you much to maintain or let you down" etc...
