If anyone sees either for sale within 20 miles of Chichester, please let me know. Thanks
So, 3.2m is no longer the max loa

It's been replaced by a location restriction - has to be within a 20 mile radius I approve, it keeps our eager lads busy and out of mischief.

Kathy, what exactly to you intend to do with the rig. The types of boat that you have shortlisted are all essentailly yacht tenders and really quite limited in ability.

If you could push it slightly to a 4m Searider/Ribcraft/Humber, you'd have a capable rig that wouldn't become scarey should the sea build beyond flat.

I know a lady who bought a 3.8m Zodiac Yachtline for herself and two kids, it was so ill-suited to her needs, it was used three times and then sold.

Tell me more about this deal, I pay 1800 odd quid for my trailer space regardless of what size boat I put in it, would be interested as I'm up for renewal soon.

Sounds like dinghy storage to me.

On a trailer? doubt it, the only dinghy storage they offer is if it's on your boat! unless it's going to stay in the water with an existing boat on a contract.

I'm at Chichester Marina, excellent place if you can cope with the drive out of the harbour. I pay about 1800 p/a

It would be cheaper along in Littlehampton, and a couple of options available, but you don't have the harbour scenery or any scenery really, not a very exciting coastline some may suggest. It depends on what your after.
