Mooring at The Folly for Lunch ?

Planning to launch from Lymington on Tuesday (8th April) and go for a wander.

Have seen others here recommend the Folly on the River Medina for Lunch.

What is the mooring situation at the Folly, I assume there is some but does it dry out or can we reach it and get out again at all states of the tide.

Lyminton and the Isle is a new area to me so anything I should watch out for ?


I know its middle of the week so people are at work but if anybody is out would be great to meet up or have you join us.

Regards

Martin

The Folly can be reached at all states of the tide - but if it is low springs make sure you tie up on the outboard side of the jetty, (not a bad idea at any time actually).

Unfortunately there is a charge for mooring - but it isnt too steep.

Wish I could make it - but work beckons !!!!!

Cant wait for the first 'Crew Pot' of the year !!!

Er? I dident pay when i went there a few weeks ago, nor did i see any signs indicating there was a charge. How much and to who Graeme?

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?

Thanks

Dan

A tip...

Once into the Medina at Cowes DO NO EXCEED 6knts. The harbourmaster's launches have speed guns. and I believe they use them. Quite a hefty fine if you are caught.

Are speed limites generaly over ground or through water? I usually twist it to fit which ever suits, but don't know which it's supposed to be!

Of course, if only people would understand that a RIB makes next to no wake at 30-40 knts then all would be fine!

They will also do you for producing a wash ... even if you are within the speed limit. This came from the harbour master directly.

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,

Mike C

There was a sign for the last couple of year that says about landing fees and that there is no free mooring-or something like that. Depends who is on the launch I suppose but we have been charged for one boat sometimes when we have brought two in just cos it was a nice guy collecting the money.
