Southampton Boat Show

Can anyone recommend best place to leave RIB when visiting the show - is there anything like 'RIB city' at Cowes week?

I dont believe they operate any moorings, i can suggest Hythe Marina and then use the Hythe Ferry over to the show.

You can try and get a mooring but it is for members only and they do not like visitors!!! Been asked to leave many times.

There is a public concrete slipway behind this Quay(through the right hand side of the Quay) but no mooring, you could drop people at the slip carefully but I dont recommend it
