Mooring In Salcombe

Hi there

Recently bought a 5m RIB and would like to moor it in Salcome for 2 weeks in August. Everyone I ring has a good sneer at my cheek in leaving it this late and none of the usual contact points can help - harbour master, boat places etc! Anyone got any ideas or know of any private ones for hire? My alternative will be to retrieve it everyday which will be a pain with young kids in tow.

Would welcome any help or advice.


NICK

I had a friend of mine call me a month ago as the boat park was full as well - August tends to book up a bit earlier than this! Wish I could help!

How about using a small tender and mooring on the pontoons on the way to Kingsbridge? Are they still public?

I believe they are meant to be for visiting boats that arrive by water, however it might be a loophole worth exploring - you wouldn't even need a tender as you can use the harbour taxi.

They will take you if you arrive by water for a few nights, but 2 weeks without booking could be pushing it.

Managed to get a last minute cancellation from one of Nick H's suggestions - phew! I think it was the last blob available in the whole estuary! Strangely there WAS loads of space in the boat park but I really wanted it kept on the water. Will have to plan the times as the mooring dries out 2hrs either side of low but I can live with that - or use some of the other suggestions for temporary stays if I cock it up!

Thanks for your help guys.
