If you're going to leave the RIB then definitely anchor rather than use someone else's mooring! You don't want the locals going grumpy on you

I've never left sight of my boat at anchor before! Was planning an overnight stop... don't think I'd sleep very well!

Yep - remember that you're probably not insured either. I can add an anchorage to my policy by advance arrangement with my broker, although they do state restrictions like maximum wind speed and may increase the policy excess - may be worth checking if you can do this?

Swanage Berthing

You can park on the South Side of the pier, its worth ringing them first on 01929 427058 and effectivly booking yourself the space. They ask for a small donation, ive found them helpful b4 and given them whaterver the smallest denomination note in my wallet is (yes I am Scottish and carry 1 notes). Ive only stayed overnight so not sure if its the same for during the day.

Last time a bit of swell was coming in from the SE so I berthed her stern into the pier with the anchor holding the bow off. There is no rising pontoon so you are effectivly parking alongside piles/pier.

There are also plenty mooring bouys but I believe they are all proivate, look for 1 that looks quite solid, some hold trawlers.

Also worth considering anchoring N of the moorings.

I dont think there is any sort of taxi running though.

Have a good weekend

You could berth in Poole Harbour. Its not that far away and you have all of Poole to find somewhere to eat.

Personally I prefer Studland beach or if you want one pretty much to yourself, Chapmans Pool a bit further round. Watch the tidal race off Durleston Head though. Lovely cliffs round that way.
