Well done, I think you are doing a great job. Once away from the Solent it is clear that the increasingly stringent H and S Regs regarding the storage of spirit petroleums is causing increased costs to the suppliers at the less busy installations. Looks like diesel is the going to become the only viable option for RIB cruising away from the south coast !!

Great idea sirib, good work on collating this info

Premier Marina at Southsea also has a fuel pontoon, serving petrol and diesel - http://www.premiermarinas.com/pages/southsea_facilities

Keep up the good work!

Fuel at Looe, Cornwall

Approx 100m up stream of the bridge on the Looe River is a 24 hour Texaco Filling Station right on the river bank. There are plans by the Looe Boat Owners Association to install a pontoon adjacent to it. In the meantime you have to climb up the bank to access it and will still need to decant fuel from a container. Hoses won't quite stretch to the river! But there's no walking involved to speak of.
Of course the fact that it's 24 hours won't help you if the tides out. But at least it's a regular filling station which won't have the marina mark up and a useful source of fuel if in the area at the same time as the tide.

Regards.

I think you will be hard pushed to get "alongside" petrol in a lot of the West Coast of Scotland, however I have been E- trawling for a while and have a (short) list of pertrol stations "by the beach" for Clyde & The west coast up to about Skye. My theory was that as I have portable tanks, a short lug down a beach isn't the end of the world, and is far preferable to rowing home!

If these would be of any use to your list, let me know.

Yes Lets start adding Petrol Stations that are close to the shore, but need cans, as I have just worked out how to make the Pins red.

So Blue Pins = Quayside Petrol
Red Pins = Nearby Petrol

I am also now adding a bit more detail to each location, so any extra deatils would be good ie:
Opening Hours
Tidal Access
Contact Details VHF & Phone

I should have all the latest Petrol places Updated, and will try to keep it up to date.

My waypoint files are in handy "Garmnin 12 sized" blocks by area. I've just extracted all the petrol, and there's a heady mix of 18 names & phone numbers.

So, do you want it "as is", or will I wait until it's been refined a bit. Of the 18, 11 have phone numbers, the remains have names and I use memory / caution as to the state of the beach!

For the time it will take I'll refine the data a bit, but how do you want it presented?

(Admin, is it the same procedure to attatch a GPX / Excel file as it is a photo?)

Yes do send it as a list or an excel file, I am sure that I can extract the data.
I try to find each location on google maps, to it is good if the site name is somewhere that google can find, if not I am sure I can work on Lat & Long

Thanks

I've added gpx to the attachment file types, but haven't tested it yet. Give it a go and see what happens!
