Ruddy Hell! Used to be less than half this amount.

Is a short stay less than 4 hours?

I guess you were jumped on as you arrived by a student working the weekend for the marina, We probably need to talk to the guys who run the lightship as they have an interest in keeping us coming over for snacks and drinks as well as food. At those charges which dont take boat length as a starter or a lesser price for a half hour drink stop the marina will also loose out. Jimbo operates from Haslar so perhaps he can spread some light of these charges for us.

I think I'd have left rather than pay that. It's taking the micky.

Might well be worth phoning the marina and asking them outright. Could be that the person collecting the dues was pocketing the difference!
