Just removed our RIB from the same area - don't think it liked sitting on the mud too much.
Yes she does look good on the dock! Must put a pic on here some time,
That dock costs around the £4,995 but it is huge! For a 6 meter boat you would be looking at £3500 +/- here and built I think. But you have all the benifits of being on a trailer, i.e no weed grows on the hull or the engine, where as some times on a drying mooring the gearbox casing will not clear the water.
It did take a while for harbours to say yes but they are quite happy now, We have just sold one to a high up guy at Jersey Harbours so they can't be that bad
The guy who owns the Rib with the dock here used to keep his old 8.5m rib in that space with out a dock and the hull got realy badly chipped, so he siad not again with the new one.
They are quite happy to have them in the marina also.
Hope this helps,
