As far as I know it's still operating, nice bar and restaurant. You'll get stung for mooring fees though.

What's wrong with the visitors pontoons in Yarmouth then?

The pontoons are great but thought short term moorings were against the wall which i'm not a fan of? Unless I am wrong of course? Would far prefer to go to the wheatsheaf!

You can go on the walk ashore pontoon at Yarmouth if they are free. Or speak nicely to them and they may let you raft to a yacht ( especially if its not being used/stayed on) or another RIB on the pontoon.

I really cant remember the last time I wasn't on a walk ashore at Yarmouth

They let you raft if there's no room, but only on the visitors pontoon. Short stays are up to 4hrs, but it's slightly more expensive than the wall but worth the money for peace of mind.

One for the future Zippy is the Sloop in Wooten creek. You'll not be able to tie up to the wall Thursday, but on a large tide can stay 1hr either side of HW.

The Lightship is still operating but as Hightower said the ongoing battle for short time visitor berthing is still a problem.

Well in that case think we will head for Yarmouth Thursday evening then. Only been to the sloop once andy, think you were there when we managed to rewire my first boat after the battery isolator destroyed itself!

If yarmouth is busy can always pop over to lymington for a bag of chips on the quay!
