Then congratulations (STS)!

STS, hope to see her (and you!) over the summer.

Following on from Trev's post and by way of comparison: our Poole dry stack is (within a few couple of quid) 3,800.00 pa but includes as many 'in and outs' as you want. Our frequent use makes this economical. It is closed over Christmas (seven days approx) but allows free pontoon mooring during that period if you elect to launch. It is semi-tidal so you need to watch your launch and return times during springs.

The local Suzuki engineer (Yellow Penguin) is based in the marina so servicing is on our doorstep (and very prompt and efficient).

With home only 15mins down the road, we've never used the clean toilets/showers available. We've been to the restaurant on site (recommended!) but as a venue in its own right rather than as part of any trip.

You need to use our marina regularly for it to pay but we do and we're happy with the arrangement for our use of it.

The previous owner has towed to Spain so I hope the journey from Liverpool will be uneventful.

Just in case you haven't seen this yet -http://www.thedrystack.com/Boat_Storage_Drystack_Solent

For your size boat it would probably be around 3000 a year, but it has Unlimited launches/recoveries, Totally inside and the shut the doors at night (so very safe!) and it is fully tidal!

PS - +1 for Drivers; but get a set of lifting strops with through hull lifting points - better than strops round tubes

Holy thread resurrection.

Finally a Rib has become part of the family . Now at S'ton drystack.

Nice one Paul - I might be down giving Baby Blue a shake down this weekend before towing up to Easdale for the ERR next week. Maybe see you at the Dry Stack.
