Rib storage

Recomendations for a Rib with inboard diesel @ Southampton area, hope to use her regularly during summer and when weather is ok in winter, what is best option? boatyard, dry berth / stack.

Does this mean that congratulations are in order?

I suggest that you speak to Trevor G about Southampton Dry Stack.

I would suggest drivers dry berthing (Welcome to Drivers Dry Berthing). I've been there for several years now and can't fault it at all. Really friendly boat yard, and loads of knowledge around the yard too - and you get to have a nosey at all the sexy race boats that either live there or pass through too

Thanks, I have a quote from them of 163.80 Per Month Including 1 launch/recovery then any subsequent launches will be charged at 54.60 Inc Vat.

Congrats Paul - I can't fault Southampton Dry Stack - but to be 100% honest I think all the Dry-Stacks in the area are pretty good - with the deciding factors tending to be things like:
  • Opening hours - especially over winter. Some reduce their weekend hours and don't operate over Xmas, whilst others are open every day except Xmas day itself.
  • Storage on your own trailer or in a rack - if your boat doesn't come with a trailer you need somewhere with a rack!
  • "Corporate Extras" - like fuel at cost and free overnight berthings in the network (for MDL and Premier Marina).
  • Refreshments and loos - some places have full Marina overnight facilities - hot showers, nice loos, somewhere to warm up after a winter day out. Others have a small kitchen to use with tea, coffee and hot chocolate and "normal loos". Others may not have anything.
  • Lifting Method - some places use cranes and lifting strops, others use forks-lifts. I'm sure both have their pro's and cons, but it's worth thinking about if your Rib "prefers" one method or the other.
  • Storage Security - it will be harder to nick a rib or engine from the top of a 4-storey rack than if it's on a trailer ready to go!
  • And of course the Price and how the pricing structure suits your anticipated boating days. If you only think you'll use the boat once a month you won't beat the 163.80 a month! If you use it a lot more an "unlimited use" package becomes more attractive.
  • And - visit the yards at the same sort of time that you will use the boat to get a feel for whether you just "like" the place.
Give me a call if you want to see how SDS do it as that's where I keep Blue Ray.

Looks good Paul. Look forward to seeing it at some point over the summer. Hope it's not too heavy for that single axle trailer?
