Nice lunch visits in hampshire and security ideas

Hi All,

Sorry for the combination of questions here, does anyone know of any nice places to moor up for a bit to eat around the Solent/Isle of Wight/Portsmouth area at all?

Also, on topic, we have a manual start motor normally carrying 2 tanks. Does anyone have any suggestions for making sure the boat is a bit more secure while moored at said eatery?

Thanks in advance!

I have a couple of suggestions: -

If the weather is nice then The Bridge Tavern ( The Bridge Tavern - Home ) in Camber Dock Old Portsmouth is a great place. If you sit outside you can be right by your boat - so you can keep an eye on it. Just 4-50 for a 3 hour (or so) stay.

Alternatively, The Fishbourne Inn ( The Fishbourne Isle of Wight Pub ) on the IOW is also great. You can moor at the Royal Victoria YC - 5 for a short stay. Pretty safe their I would have thought.

Good Luck!

Cheers, what are your thoughts with leaving petrol on a keyless start boat?

You might consider taking the killcord and the fuel line (assuming it detaches at the engine end?) With the price of fuel now - you might secure the tanks too...

Hi,

If you do visit The Camber and are worried about fuel theft, you can leave your tanks with me at the Dry Stack and pick them up when you leave. Just see any of the staff and say I said it was OK.

Steve

I take my HT leads with me when I'm on shore overnight. Cable lock the tanks to OB transom screw handles. Sad state of affairs but it's always the buggers with them damned fighting degs. Just wished their ink glowed in the dark.

If you go right up Wooten Creek (past the The Fishbourne Inn) on the IOW over a Spring tide you can tie up against the Sloop Inn's The Sloop Inn in Isle of Wight wall, climb the ladder and you're in the beer garden. This should be pretty safe I'd have thought and will give you at least a couple of hours either side of high tide before it drys out. You can tie up for free too!

Other than that the Folly past Cowes up the river Medina. Tie up the the pontoon and you can watch your boat from the restaurant or garden. You'll pay for the privilege of tying alongside though.

Bosham has a cool pub accessible at highish tide, be prepared to dry out and await the next one. Views are wonderful and it's just accessible via plenty of slips at Bosham and Itchenor. Straight out onto open water from Chichester harbour. Many B&B's and yacht clubs and chandleries catering for power and teabag varieties. Many beaches to "beach" on, lots of open water and IoW is within easy reach. Plenty of friendly parking and it is visually very accomodating.

Thanks all, I'll look into all of this, I have managed the sloop in Wooton a few times, the ladder there is going to be a problem as I have recently broken my knee and had surgery, so that's saved until next year.

Steve, thanks for the offer of fuel tank nannying offer! Everyone else thanks too, and I'll look into bosham too (I'm on iOS 6 and don't trust the maps!)

I off to grab some ht and decent padlocks for the fuel tanks in the mean time too!
