Very hypothetically....

We have begun to work out our plans for summer and July is going to be a very packed month so it may be hard to fit in everything we want to do especially around a significantly increased work load for GD.

One way to try and work around this is to combine two of these things together...

If we joined the Cap Breizh cruise up to the Solent on the 17th, stay overnight with them then we could leave the boat over here until the 23rd to cruise back with the Floptilla group.

So the question is.... what do you all think the best place will be to store the boat for those six days? (A relative has a Sunseeker jobbie at Mercury on 'Hamble so maybe somewhere near there would be possible but not essential? Poole I guess would also work but I guess s/tn would be preferable.)

It is a long way ahead, but we just wanted to have some more ideas in our heads.

Thanks very much

There is no shortage of marinas.

Edit: Or leave the boat in Alderney and I can sort your radio installation out.

You could try Drivers Dry Berthing on the Itchen... They'd probably crane her out for the week, so might be a bit expensive, but have no idea what a marina would be for just one week, always worth giving Gareth a call

Martin,

Yep, know that, there are quite a few places around!

Main issue with Alderney of course is how to get home since the plane would be at Dinard. That might work actually, I could come up in the boat and GD could fly over

Hmm well I'm not sure there's so much to sort now, as if it breaks again we've got about three of everything so I'm sure we'll survive. And if it plays up the HX851 handheld that GD bought (Slightly on a whim I might add) in November last year should come in handy.

Neil,

Yes I bear Drivers in mind and the whole drystack idea in general, it's just a question of how damned expensive this whole malarky could become very quickly . The other issue would be that we'd probably want to go out at some stage. a) it would be a shame to waste the oppotunity to make my uncle (with the sunseeker) go out (he put 3 hours on his boat in the entire season last year - one trip to Poole and back overnight - and that was only cos we were there to help, he's done 186 hours on his boat in ten years. We did 100 hours last season alone, and I dare say got alot more enjoyment out of it - the mooring is just such a pain) b) it would be a shame to miss out on the opportunity to cruise with some people on the Solent sometime, S'tn is only a couple of hours drive and to have any boat accessible from home will be the first time for us.

It's just a bit difficult to organise the Scillies on the 25th, CapBreizh on the 17th then Alderney the following week. Thank god it's GCSE year and we get out early!

I could be wrong, but I doubt you'll get a drystack for a week or two only, not at reasonable cost anyway, whereas Drivers will probably entertain the idea, and you could have it put in and out once or twice, but it all costs

Yeah I know. Round here you can pretty much find a space at any of the marinas at anytime of the year for a RIB like ours as long as it's only a shortish stay, the south coast is a whole different ball game that we've never experienced

It may be a little far East for you, but if you wanted to bring the boat to KB Boatpark at the entrance to Portsmouth Harbour, the cost of lift out, storage for a week and relaunch is 95.36 (inc vat). Oh, that includes a free Pressure wash for your hull, engine and tubes!
