Have a look at the website StolenBoats.org.uk :: Free directory of Stolen Boats :: Boat Insurance :: Marine Security and have a good read through. The 2k for the Dry Stack is worth it for peace of mind plus it keeps your boat cleaner and is great if you like using your boat alot. From LyndHurst I guess best place would be Southampton or Lymington or Poole.

Hi there,

If you have a trailer and a tow vehicle and someone willing to drive it for you then you could consider politely enquiring at local farms. Try finding a farm which is secluded from the main roads etc where they might rent you a space in the corner of their yard or even better (if you're lucky) in a barn. You might find your boat gets dusty and mucky from working activities on the farm, but you can usually find something substantial to chain it upto (with the farmers permission - they may need to move it from time to time!) but it can work out very cheap. I was paying 10 per week which was often paid in a few scallops or a few fish :-) 520 per year isn't so bad but then add up fuel costs for towing it to the slip, trailer wear and tear and maintenance (wheel bearings etc) slipway fees and time it takes from collection to launch. This can easily add up...

As previously said its not a cheap hobby, but its fun!

Chatted to a guy at my marina (Premier, Swanwick) who keeps a 5m Rib on a trailer in the compound for 30 a month.......just tows it to the slip at just next door which is free and has a free car park.
Worth a phone call to Premier to see if they have any winter deals.

Its full up go away! It's 37 quid a month and a great Marina but the compound is full. I have suggested they build another one as It's as secure there as it can be.

Who were you chatting to did he have a red Volvo c30 (catjasp) or a very old Patrol (me)

LOL...Sorry can't remeber who it was just saw the guy with another lady working on his rib and asked how much he was being charged....thought he said 30 which I thought was very cheap considering the security and the ease of launcjing with the slip next door. The rib is the one keeped on the left as you go in so if thats yours it was you!....mine is on its trailer now and kept down in the visitors car park hoping to bring it home next week for a major refit... will keep and eye out for an Patrol and come and say Hi.

It was 30 quid but it's gone up a little this month, still a good deal and they definitely have the security balance right.......I think that must have been Jasper you were talking too!

For what it's worth, it took me the best part of an entire afternoon to get mine into the garage first time.

After some adjustments to the surrounding "scenery" & a few trips to get the hang of what I need to line up with what as I reverse over the hump, I've got it down to a matter of 7.5 mins, of which > half is spent mucking about with the lighting board (but I'm working on that as well... )

I've just put my new (well, new to me - I'll update my profile eventually) RIB into drystack in Southampton for just over 2k with all year round access. As I have young children the thought of not trying to achieve the whole trailer/slip/parking experience while the children "help " is worth at least 90% of that 2k. Factoring in the removal of the costs of running the trailer and the reduced insurance risk I don't think it's a bad deal overall. Furthermore the guys are the drystack are really helpful and have excellent contacts to deal with those ineviable problems (lots of water in the fuel this weekend ). I suppose my main driver is the ease of getting onto the water means I will ultimately use the boat more frequently, thus dividing the cost betwen more time on the water.
