Salcombe fuel pontoon, two weeks ago charging 1.35 a litre! And I watched someone filling past 150, how I loved my 25hp 4 stroke, at leaast for a minute or two.

Mmm. 15 kwid buys quite a lot of KFC.

Jolly Sailor

The Jolly Sailor used to be a " free house" is it still? and do they still host the "Burseldon Regatta" many many fond memories of that pub.( some blured) Pillow fights on a greasy pole, water skying on a barn door etc. The pain was you had to park your car at the station and walk down the footpath or go in by boat and tie up along their rickety dock.

104p per litre?

- That's not bad at all!

Even as an MDL berth-holder, it still costs 105.3p per litre at Port Hamble, after a 10% discount!!!

It cost me 335 to top up Aries IV's fuel tank last week, but it would probably have cost more than the 3 or so saving from getting fuel in Moody's to get up there!

Thanks for the info, Benc.

Regards,

Chris.

After speaking to some peeps from the MDL Marina in Hamble with the fuel they will actually stay open whilst there are customers wanting fuel. I was told if you ring up in advance saying your coming down they will try and hang on for you with the latest being about 7pm.

Although it came from a member of staff there I don't know how reliable this is.

Just called them again, to make sure somebody is there so I can get fuel tonight, and they have now told me that they should be serving fuel 24/7!

Definately a useful nugget if you are a night owl like me - Sometimes gets to the early hours, stressed to the eyeballs - and fancy a blast - now I can
