Hamble dry stack

Hi

I am seriously looking into dry stacking my rib somewhere on the Hamble. Does anyone have any experience - good or bad of the Hamble river drys stacks? I am aware that Ribnet guys rate Southampton dry stack, but I dont want to be on the Itchen ...

Any thoughts?

Thanks

Hamble Point is the best location. Close to the entrance/exit of the Hamble river and, by pure coincidence, the most expensive. They cover your Hamble River permot.

The guys there are great. The location is perfect.

They are redoing the concrete roads and once that is finished, it will be close to perfect.

MDL also sell their fuel at cost so it is often cheaper than the Tesco pumps.

I've dealt with customers who have boats at HYS at universal and they seem happy. Quite a way up the river mind...

We have used both MDL at Hamble point and HYS at Port Hamble.

Both very good. MDL is cleaner and smarter but HYS are just as competent!

theres not much in it and the extra run down the river from HYS gives you opportunity to

a) warm the engine up before you get to the unrestricted area and

b) get shouted at by all the little sailing boats who think they own the river and its appropriate to stick in a tack for no reason when they are 6 feet infront of you on a busy sunday afternoon when everyone is coming back in the river!!!

I found the run up the hamble a bit tiresome having to do it all the time, it's quite a way. That said are HYS cheaper?

HYS at Universal is a fair way up the river (but cheaper). HYS at Port Hamble is just up from the Royal Southern and the quay so not exactly far. i would say from port Hamble to Hamble point is at worst 5 minutes.

granted, up to universal is a good 15 / 20 minutes and sods law, it will pour with rain just as your passing Mercury marina

if i had to pay full price i know which one i would choose!!

i have mine at HYS at port hamble, i think the guys do a great job there, but i work there alot so know they guys quite well.

the yard can be messy. but they do know what they are doing and do take care, wash down etc.

and worse case, damage a boat, they fill in all the forms and let you know and come clean about it, very good i think.

costs a bit more than SDS, but much closer to the solent.

ita all horses for courses!!
