Places to stop off

Being new to Ribs, I'm keen to find some places to be able to stop off, maybe for a little drink or food, or maybe just a wander.

Is there a list of places anywhere that gives ease of access, details etc.

Any help would be appreciated!

Are we just talking the Solent?

Most pubs don't have anywhere to moor the boat though

Yes, I was thinking the Solent or central South Coast. We live on the Isle of Wight, so having the rib should give us the opportunity to "pop over" to England

Thinking of things like dropping the wife off in Portsmouth, Southampton to do a bit of shopping etc.

Unless you know, it's not obvious finding public landing areas

I thought that a decent list, sort of like BoatLaunch would help everyone.

Perhaps its worth suggesting to geoff (who runs boatlaunch) and posts on here - that he add a new category for "pubs with jetties!" or just jetties (if they are not already covered)?

I never know why I dont see more visitors in Christchurch. You can stop for nothing , either at Mudeford Quay ( next to pub), or in the harbour ( need to get a lift to 'Beech house' resteaurant) , or go up the river & again stop for free outside decent places to eat.

Hi Brainz,

Try the following:

Jolly Sailor, Burseldon - pontoon access but not around +/- 2hours of low water

Jolly Sailor, Ashlett Creek, + 2hours before high water should be ok

Banana Wharf, Port Hamble Marina (MDL) but speak to the harbourmaster for a 'short' stay.

Cafe Lulworth, Universal Marina, is west facing so good for afternoon 'teas'....moor

Horse and Jockey, Curbridge, top of river Hamble, only at highish water, good 'adventure' if you haven't been there before (very narrow, but your rib will be ok)

There are also plenty of good pubs in Hamble village and the public pontoon is good for ribs.

I could write loads but the above should get you started!!

That's damn good idea!
