For what it's worth, I do have a limited amount of pontoon spaces which I would be happy to set aside (for a small contribution to the beer fund) for visiting RIBnet members wishing to attend the show. Please phone ahead to check availability (023 9283 3166).
Alternatively, you can moor up outside the Bridge Tavern. Mooring fees are: -
£4.50 (under 8 metres) for a short stay (3 hours).
And remeber, we do offer a "lift, hull pressure wash and relaunch" service for £67.50! So, you could leave your rib with us, visit the show and return to your lovely clean rib! Again, phone ahead to book this service.
Hope evryone has a great show!

Just seen updates from show literature
"Coming to the show by boat? We have 70m of Visitors Pontooning available on a first come firt served basis located on the far outside pontoon, at a cost of just £10 per day. Simply come along, and a show steward will help you.
All visiting craft must be prepared to raft, and come equipped with fenders."
For anyone thinking of using this it is worth knowing the busy harbour kicks some good waves up with strong tides and if moored against the outer wall pontoon it is quite harsh on boats, normally they use this for large yachts . be warned it may be a tad rough on a small rib, Dry Runs offer seems like a great deal or even Haslar opposite at £8 for short stay and your boat is protected.
