Yarmouth IOW Crane

Has anyone used the crane in Yarmouth IOW?

I used it for a lift and scrub on Mini Indaba last June - but they were reluctant then to lift the Protector due to lack of appropriate strops. I was told that they now have longer / weight approved strops. I am led to believe they could now lift me as the crane is rated for 5 tons.

Would be interested if anyone has lifted here as it is well priced and they let you personally use the jet wash. If not I would be interested to hear from anyone ideas for reasonably priced quick lift / scrubs anywhere Solent area.

I find Bucklers Hard very reasonably priced and their hoist is rated to 35 tonnes if I remember correctly. They will either lift, powerwash / scrub and relaunch, or you can stay ashore for a few days to do your own cleaning & maintenance.

The sealift in Cowes and Gosport can quite often be very reasonably priced

It works! The team at Yarmouth agreed to have a test with the Protector using their new strops - pics of the trial lift on Friday.

Very good arrangement here and very price competitive. Will definitely do the scrub and ant foul here.

Think they need to work on getting a level lift, unless its the pictures, something is seriously not right there..

i would not be happy having my boat lifted like that. if the strops were the right length then it wouldn't be running over you cabin top and potentially causing damage. i assume it wasn't put to ground from that angle?
