Second that one - ideal (unless you're only going for a short visit). Note the pay booth is a little way in so don't just park by the Casino as a freeby!

Don't forget you can park in Hythe either in the marina if you are an MDL berth holder, or in the town and get the ferry across.

It is a very pleasant way to arrive!

Had a play in the Parker and it was great fun - not being a stepped hull means that it won't be as fast, but it pays you back - tight turns at pretty much full speed (it wasn't my boat and I hadn't driven it before) were easy, and I can see how passengers would get a huge thrill going out in this boat without being in any danger at - it just felt totally safe. Flat out over the ferry wakes no problem and even at 40 mph there was a big kick in the back from those twin 300's!

None of those - I wondered up and before I said anything Andre insisted that he ring Richard to come back to the boat so that I could have a go! Great fun it was too!
