Where can i store my boat?

Hi,

i am new to boating and I want to be able to use my boat all year round. i like the idea of dry stacks but the price turns my away ( I got quotes for the 2k mark with a 23ft boat)

i do have a trailer so is there somewhere within 30 min drive from southampton that would let me just keep my trailer there and ideally have a launch ramp? i am not looking to spend all the money i have saved up for fuel on it though

EDIT: someone just told me about a swinging mooring? they seem really cheap, what's the safety like there? ( i will have a outboard)
I would keep it at my drive but it took us over 3 hours to get it in, no idea how we are going to get it out

if the 2k seems is for a drystack for a year with unlimited launching, it seems cheap to me

you could try Drivers Dry Berthing in southampton, a monthly storage fee and a pay per crane launch works out cheaper for me than drystack, but i assume 3k for drystack around there

If I could get drystack in southampton for 2k, year round with unlimited launching, i'd be doing that without a doubt

but it's a far cry from the cost of a swinging mooring which will not be as secure

I am still doing my GCSES so finding a weekend job that lets me spend 2k a year alone on storage is a hard task.
There is a swinging mooring at Fareham for about 700. What is the insurance like on a swinging mooring? Providing i have insurance i wouldn't think security is too much of an issue?

Security on a mooring is as good as the knife it takes to cut the mooring rope! I imagine if you go to the Swinging mooring where you boat is on another boat then you can help yourself to whatever is on the moored boat

Lynhurst is not too far away from Lymington last time I looked with practice you can launch and recover in 20 mins

You can ry Solent Breezes they use to rent boat space and had there own slipway. Its a residential caravan holiday park near Warsash

But to be fair its not much better in many boat yards! There are things you can do to reduce the risk in both cases, but at the end of the day insurance it the only real guarantee he'll not loose out too much.

Some insurance policies will not let you keep it afloat all year. Others will, and in the right place won't be much more expensive. But you will then need to think about (1) bilge pumps and keeping batteries charged (2) stopping shite-hawks from covering your boat in guano (an ebay cover may not be easy to fit afloat) (3) how you get to and from your mooring (4) antifouling.

Not meaning to be dismissive to our younger members, but RIB ownership is not cheap and I'm not convinced many people still at school can afford the true cost of ownership - especially on the south coast. However working out that the cost of storage, repairs, fuel, insurance, training/toys, all adds up to a scary number is all part of growing up.

all of the above is true and worth considering, you can chain your boat to mooring it will help, one plus is that you won't get some tosser WALKING off with your engine. A rib will float even full of water, if you rig it with this in mind people are less likely to nick it and providing you have thought of a way to pump it out and connect your battery it shouldn't be so bad, it will need a bit of thought though

I left my RIB on a mooring and it never took much harm. It was covered in gull sh!t though so I got a cover which was a right pain in the @rse.
For 2000 you can't go wrong with the dry stack.

I believe Ashlett sailing club has cheap rates and it's just a short hop to calshot to launch if necessary (the creek tidal range is interesting).
