I'm in Hamble Yacht Services, nice friendly bunch. I found them to be a low cost no frills operation that suit my needs just fine. They hosedown you boat, refit your cover and restack - leave a spare set of keys with Security if you ever forget yours.

Good cafe, handy for the chandlers (Aladdins Cave), a stroll to the pubs - but petrol is 1.37 on the fuel berth.....

On balance I'd say 8/10, pontoon access is a bit of a ball ache (slippy ladders, no ramps)

Hope this helps....

How much kit can you leave on the boat whilst it's stacked?

Do you have to remove everything like anchors, warps, emergency kit, electronics etc etc.

Cheers.

The Anchor and Warps, flare pack and installed electronics (VHF & Fishfinder) and reserve fuel tank stay on - the empty fuel tank and chartplotter/gps come off every time.
