Hi Howard,
The Duke of York is reasonable.
Within walking distance of the marinas.
We have stayed there a couple of times.
Basic and Olde Worlde (a bit like me!)

Duke of York,

Get hammered, then stagger upstairs to bed.

Job done.

Called Cowes yacht haven and they couldn't accommodate us, called Shephards wharf and they dont take bookings so too much of a risk by the time i have finished here, got down to the boat, put some fuel in it and made our way over.

In the end we changed out plans and will head down to Yarmouth tomorrow evening, (leaving hamble around 4.30 / 5 ish)

Have a walk ashore berth booked and a B&B in Yarmouth. if you fancy meeting up i will buy you (Rodan) the first beer!( as long as its followed by another one! )

half thinking about a blast around the island saturday morning before collecting the nephew for his first ribbing experience!
