Storage near largs

Anyone know of storage around the gourock- largs ish area?

My marina have been at the brandy and trebled the price so looking at options, kip and largs are calling back Monday with prices but open to suggestions if anyone has any.

Failing that if someone wants a ribcraft 6.8 speak up!

If could afford a 250k boat the marina fees would proportionally be worth it. Be about another 500 quid to berth the scorpion....madness

Are you at JWD? They have fairly big expansion plans and I did wonder if that would mean getting rid of some of the low revenue storage...

Are you looking for indoors? I canít think of anywhere on the south side of the Clyde, youíll be aware of both Silvers and the guys at Rosneath? How do their prices compare?

I am at JWD yes and have been since it opened. Prices have gradually gone up but with the new owners they now want circa 2.2k to store it, whilst I love the boat the juice ain't worth that squeeze to my back and back pocket. I can't even launch at JWD which for the money isn't great.

going to see place tomorrow so I'll see how that goes. Also kip and largs are going to quote, good thing about clyde is usually deals to be had due to number of marinas.

Storage near largs

Hi Paul what's the scoop. I've not had my invoice for this year. Are the prices going up next year? I'm thinking of doing yearly dry berthing at Largs good price and they launch recover and hose down after every trip.

Wow that seems pricey especially not to actually be able to launch. Do you actually need it on the coast if you aren't launching there?

Indoor Caravan Storage Options?

Or will it fit in a shipping container? I'm pretty sure I was quoted about £1500 for a 40ft container down here with 24/7 access a year or so ago. Containers are only about 2.4m wide (check the door width!) so may not fit a big Rib.

I believe it has been said that the damp/condensation problem in containers may make them a worse option than open storage ?

Iíve stored quite a variety of stuff in containers over the years. Condensation is definitely an issue, although some containers are better than others.* With boating stuff it is almost certainly being put away damp at some point, so it is a reasonable thing to highlight. I doubt itís any worse than storing outside with a cover over it though?

* Proper shipping containers are pretty water tight so you only have deal with the moisture you have put inside it and some of those desiccant boxes changed regularly helps a lot if you arenít in and out all the time. If itís a retired shipping container it may well be less water tight. In my experience some storage places use something that looks a bit like a container but is just a cheap box - and they donít even keep the rain out very well!
