Hi Tim and thanks to you all who responded to my post.
On the weekends I will be residing in Ventnor hence I am planning to launch my assault on the Solent from somewhere on the Medina river between Newport + Cowes.
Considering that I am a ribbing virgin have been thinking that I should hoik the boat out of the water every Sunday afternoon and store it on terra firma during the week. Is this nonsense and should I not fret about mooring it on the water from Apr to Sep?
Cannot do Rough Wave as I must be island based. So seems the options are:
Shepherds Wharf (dry)
The Haven (wet)
RHP (wet or dry)
East Cowes (?)
Island Harbour (wet/tidal)
Folly Reach (wet/tender)
Victory Yard (wet/tender or taxi)
Have I missed anything?

Cowes Shepherds wharf though expensive and dry berthed and is in between Souters now called Medina Yard and the Haven
The haven do short lets for the summer AFLOAT
RHP do dry berthing and pontoon
East Cowes do short term summer lets but charge a minimum length ?? not sure on size
Island Harbour afloat but tidal but cheap and can work out if you plan ahead
Folly reach boat afloat very cheap but exposed and need tender to get it
Victory yard pontoon but need tender or river taxi to get to it.
Hope this helps
