RIB storage - dry stack?

Second Newbie question, of sorts .................

Experiences please - Saxon, Drivers, Hamble Point areas?

Seems a good idea, but I've heard costs not much cheaper than marina berths ?

Anyone Ribbers at any of these particulary?

I don't really fancy towing and launching every time I want to go out - what do others do?

Thanks all..............

Second answer then- If you want a good dry stack with people that care about your boat then Southampton Dry Stack have been brilliant. They offer inside warehouse and outside stacks

again southampton drystack, they are cheaper than moorings, but also think about the bonus of having your boat ashore until you need it, no anti foul for one, can't get it nicked from a rack, no need for trailer maintenance, no parking problems, get it wash everytime, shall i go on!

Lewy has his BananaShark 770 in Southampton Dry Stack and loves it, they are courteous and organised, Drivers next door launch you from your trailer and would be cheaper I would imagine, also great people and they are all eager to please.

Seems everyone loves it. Thanks for the replies.

Before I call the various places - any ideas on costs?

Once again I would recommend Southampton Dry Stack.
I have a company based at the Southampton Dry Stack called MRL.
We are the importers of Stingher, Predator and Redbay Ribs and were the first people to use the Dry Stack back in 2006.
I have all my boats delivered here and have never had one damaged in all that time.
As well as my own demonstration RIBs there are circa of 25 of my customers RIBs in the Dry Stack and all of them seem very happy with the service that they get.
As previously mentioned the advantages of keeping a boat in the dry stack really do make sense.
Security, ease of use, no antifoul, cleaned for you, your boats residual sale value is higher, and Mark Bleeker of MB Marine is less than a mile away to sort out any servicing issues for Mercury, Suzuki and Honda engines.
Why would you want to go anywhere else.
Give it a try.

Regards

Edward Pedley - MRL

I second this as well having kept two ribs at Southampton Dry Stack. You cannot find a better bunch of people there. as for service it is: FIRST CLASS

I can not recommend Southampton Dry Stack highly enough.

As for benefits over Marina berthing; its is significanlty better - as far as I am aware, there is no limit as to how many times the boats can be lifted in or out of the water in a day so if you're trialling or going out for a short period of time, you have no worries. Its also good for working on boats or preparing them for transport. Plus it means you're not sat in a marina constantly. You're litterally out of the water in seconds once you're on the Bull.

All of the guys are great and really helpful.

Your very welcome to come and try any of my range of Ribs, whether it be the Predator, Stingher or Redbay at Southampton dry stack and see how it works at the same time.

I'm not sure how familiar you are with Ribs whether your looking for a nice family Rib, a fast good looking family orientated Rib, or a more traditional commercial style Rib, we are bound to have something that suits between the three ranges.

Have a look on the Website www.mrl-uk.com

Give me a call if you want to come down on 023 8033 5333

Regards

Ed - MRL
