Help with Fuel-Petrol

Can anyone help me define a port or harbour that has dockside petrol between Amble and Ramsgate?
There seems to be very little available but due to the volumes concerned I am loathe to consider carrying it (multiple times!) in a 20L can from a garage.
Ideally I need two or three stops between Amble and Ramsgate.

Try boat launch (www.boatlaunch.co.uk) - it does show in the detail page which fuels are available at each marina. Don't seem to be able to search to just show petrol stops though (Geoff are you reading this - this would be a big plus for many people on here - even better if it indicated the prices!).

Brian,
Petrol isnt to easy to come by in NE Marinas. To the best of my knowledge, Royal Quays (River Tyne) has a pump and then it's down to Hull marina before you get another. Quite a few marinas have petrol stations really near by though.

I guess Royal Quays is a bit close to Amble and Hull a bit far to get to.

I'm often about between Hartlepool and Whitby so PM me if you need some help moving the petrol about.

Thank you very much for that. I am gradually filling in the gaps up an down the coast!
Would loath to have to go to a garage as decanting 300litres from a 20 litre petrol can is not my idea of fun!

Perhaps it might be better to try to find a slipway in the right place, and a local RIBnetter with a trailer . . .

or a "bladder" ferry tank? - folds up into a bin liner when empty - very simple and effective for long distance ribbing - we did nearly 500 miles without stopping for fuel :-0 - but we were slingshotted to get on the plane tho... boy that was fun...:-)
