Also, anyone know what the procedure is if the pontoon is full - are there any visitors moorings or is tieing up alongside another boat acceptable?
It's a bit late now since you've already done it... but
The man who collects the money will find you if he is there. You may get away with it midweek off-season, though I believe the procedure is to pay at the pub if no-one asks. Obviously we all do that. Can't remember the exact price but £3.50 rings a bell. Not much more that that anyway!
As Graeme says, donít go inside at low water springs, it gets quiet shallow... though its pretty neapish this week so you may get away with it. Put the engine up as you leave if you go inside or even on the side. Yes, there are other pontoons mid stream which can be used if the water taxi is operating... but I've always managed to get on the jetty pontoon.
Yes, you can tie up alongside but if it's a pristine plastic yachty thing they do get upset when the black rubber of the average RIB rubs off on their pride and joy. Choose a tatty boat or another RIB .... or ask.
If my boat had been back from the menders I would have joined you!
Hope you had a good time,
