Fuel barge has been sold for scrap, so it certainly won't be coming back! Fuel is, however, also available in Poole at Parkstone Bay Marina (although currently only landside for their dry stack customers as the result of the lifting for the winter of the pontoons which give waterside access). Parkstone Bay is a good option to consider for dry-stacking in Poole since, although with some access restrictions at low spring tides, it is considerably closer to the harbour entrance than Cobbs Quay and they are about to start taking new applications for berths for this year.

It was on eBay in Southampton.
Advertised as a work barge ripe for house boat conversation!
Sold for daft money!

I kept mine at Davis yard ( next to Cobbs) on its trailer for a summer.

Easy to launch , taps etc , little cafe at the end - I found it quite pleasant . Its the same trip under the bridges & the slip is tidal .

It was a fraction ( half ish from memory) of what Cobbs quay wanted .

I was originally at parketsone bay marina but found the access issues with tides a complete pain in the back side and restricted my boating time on many occasions hence why I moved to cobbs quay.
