Who uses dry stack?

And what problems have they found with it? I've just received my quote to dry stack down at Hamble Marina. It's a hefty sum but there seems to be so many advantages to doing it and well worth the money! Anyone had any bad experiences? Any con's to dry stacking?


All help welcomed

Thanks, Laurence

Ive only just started my own company back here in the UK and some of my clients mostly use Southampton DS. I have to say I have been very impressed with their service and ease of use. I have come and gone quite freely with craft, and had nothing but good service. Well worth every penny!!!

Hamble Point Dry Stack

Hi,

I used Hamble Point last year. I found it Excellent. The only minor issue was coming back in on a busy Sunday Evening as there are limited places to leave the boat. The longest wait I had for drop off was 15 mins.

I loved Hamble point Dry Stack but moved to a smaller boat this year so I am trailering it around again.

Ohh, and the other minor niggle is cost!

Cheers

P.

Hamble Yacht Service have just started a Dry Stack down at Universal Marina on the other side of the river. It is alot cheaper than Hamble Point and less crowded. It is about 10 to 15 minutes down the river but alot quicker to get to by car.

Haven Quay at Lymington is excellent - faultless in my book. Worth every penny - but then we are in walking distance......

Dry stacking

I am a big fan of them. In the last year I have used KB in Portsmouth, Haven Quay where our Scorpion was built and now Hamble Point. I always try to avoid long river passages which seem to take so long in a fast boat. KB was friendly, by with no washdown and mixed support a bit too grubby for the new boat. Am very pleased with Hamble Point so far and being at the entrance you get out into the Solent with less fuel than some places. Haven Quay is always good although I don't think that they have any spare spaces.

We use Yacht Haven Quay in Plymouth. The blokes there are very helpfull and nothing is ever a problem.

I think it costs me about 2300 PA, about the same cost as a mooring at Yacht Haven. It will soon be kept in the new shed they are building, then I will be happy knowing the RIB is safe and sound out of the weather.

The only bad point I can think of is for those people that ask for the boat to be put in the water, then don't bother turning up. The staff tend to get thier own back one way or another

One more, if you have a sudden urge to go out, you may have a bit of a wait to get the boat in the water if it is busy.
