RIB storage near Manchester

Hi all

I'm the boat officer for Manchester Uni diving club. We are currently looking for a new home for our 5.5m Tornado as we loose our current boatshed in a matter of months. We are frantically searching all over the university campus for anywhere suitable but have yet to find anything.

Does anyone know of anywhere that might suit our purpose?

Ideally it would be under-cover, with room for our equipment aswell, have access to electricity/water and allow 24 hour access as some of our trips return fairly late. Also cheap as various changes to the club have meant that we don't have a huge budget to play around with!

I've been looking into caravan storage yards and containers but I think shes going to be a bit too big for a container...

Overall size of the boat is 7.4m on the trailer, 2.6m wide and 2.4m high with the A frame.

Any information, suggestions or leads would be extremely gratefully received!

Did you find anywhwere? I am in the same 'boat' as it were...

I have a 6.5 and need a place to store her Manchester area, and with 24hour access and under cover, power and water are a massive bonus
