Storage (the RIB MAD centre)

We have outgrown our place at Saxon Wharf (Southampton) and are looking to relocate to a bigger unit with more storage and better workshops and training facilities. We have found a very interesting place on the River, and it is our intention to turn this into a Rib\sportsboat centre.

We only intend to offer twenty Secure storage spaces ( 5 of which will be inside a building) and have placed 10 of these. So if anybody is looking for secure storage space please let me know. Our prices wont be any cheaper than the going rate but we are hoping that we can offer the best service possible by adding value.

One of our intentions is to provide a workshop facility for our customers (subject to H & S approval) equiped with engine hoists pillar drills etc so that they can do their own maintenance if needed.

If any body has any ideas in what they would like to see or have in a small boat facility please let me know as I would like to make it the coolest place around.

Cheers
Stuart

This may sound like I'm being silly but I'm not!

I'll leave it to the experts to talk about boat stuff but from the perspective of 'crew', I'd like to see (in reverse order!):
  • secure storage for wets, LJs, etc.
  • facility for making hot drinks
  • clean toilets with loo paper

P.S. Cool name. I wonder how you came up with it!!!

I thought the name actually related to his nether regions...anyway let's not go there. I was only messing around, I think it's a great plan.

Thanks for the feedback peeps!


We have found a very suitable unit on the Itchen in Southampton, which is ideal for this operation with easy access to the river.


yes scratcher does refer to the irritating effect immersion in the itchen had on me and no I 've never damaged a boat on the water (apart from engines)

The project is open to any boat up to 11 metres ( and we can make you a special podium Jon where you can do lectures on the disadvantages of a RIB)

Or perhaps a "free" rib, and an unreliable engine!
