Fuel At Cowes

Marine Support & Towage, the fuel barge just above the floating bridge, is CLOSING. [business for sale]

At this stage, the only other place to get fuel will be Lallows, adjacent to Cowes Yacht Haven. I am not sure how they operate over the weekends.

Bummer.

Andy

The buisness has been for sale for a while but has some issues because of the Redevelopment plans, which I cannot post on a public forum.

Have sent you a PM

Nasher.

I think Lallows is open most of the time - I have never had an issues with getting fuel from them at the weekends etc. I think the owners live at the back of the yard, and there is a bell on the fuel pontoon which lets them know if you are waiting. Only trouble is they seem to be a lot more expensive.

Getting fuel is becoming harder and harder in the Solent. The Gosport fuel pontoon hasn't been selling petrol for a couple of weeks now and it's set to stay like that - they've got major problems with their pipes which need to be replaced. The only places to get petrol in the Eastern Solent are Port Solent, and Lallows in Cowes.

They don't live there, but pretty sure they're nearby.
I did some work with Lallows a while back - a really nice bunch of guys.
What most people don't realise is that most of the waterside fuel berths have to pay MORE for their fuel than we pay to buy it from a tescos, bp etc.

Not Eastern enough really for me.
