Our maiden voyage this year was to Bembridge harbour. Very nice - stopped, had lunch and then headed to the nearest 'facilities' to use the loo and have a coffee before heading back to Portsmouth.
Made the mistake of stopping at 'Duver marina'. Their office is at the top of the pontoon, so we had no choice but to pop in, say we were just staying for a coffee and paid the princely sum of £6 (minimum charge apparently). Subsequently found some toilets (OK so far), but no coffee shop or anything else for that matter.
Ten minutes later we were back on the water, somewhat disgruntled at being charged £6 for a 10 minute visit.
We know boating is expensive, but THAT was ridiculous. Any thoughts please, or is this par for the course???
Still - a glass of red at the lightship cheered us up afterwards!
