I agree, but an additional £8 makes the cost of two cups of coffee akin to prices you'd expect to pay in Venice, not Gosport (regardless of how good the view is).
Yes, I expect to pay to moor on what is, after all, a private pontoon, but some place just take the ****. Car parks have to display their charges. Why is the same not the case for boat 'parking'? At least if they did that you'd know what to expect, and be able to choose whether you're prepared to pay accordingly.
