Can anyone recommend a company who will travel to Port Solent and anti-foul my boat? Preferably someone who has anti-fouled your boat, is reliable and can do a good job at fairly short notice...

Re: Toe Rag ?

Friday 1/6/07 berthed in Bembridge.

On returning to my boat there was a Fairline Targa 33, very quiet and I sensed an issue.

Next morning the skipper introduced himself and handed me a card volunteering 'Polishing services', very friendly nice chap /forums/images/graemlins/smile.gif

We then moved 20 miles and I found a fresh scratch ( anchor hightish ) /forums/images/graemlins/mad.gif

It is certain the scratch appeared at Bembridge the same side as the Targa was moored.

It is of course possible that another boat had berthed along side us and then departed prior to the Targa coming alongside.

We were on the beach for an hour or so.

Read into this what you like and I welcome comments from Clive should he read this, perhaps you saw a boat move off who let you come along side of us ?

In the mean time I remain puzzled as to why he didnt offer to fill and polish the scratch that day /forums/images/graemlins/confused.gif

Re: Toe Rag ?

I'd also recommend Clive, he did a great job doing mine, I posted the pics about 2 months ago on here.

Although I don't know him that well he comes across as a real boat fanatic. I can't believe he goes around scratching boats to get business.

And if he'd scratched you by accident do you think he would have given you his card?

I didnt consider this as an option and I didnt mean to imply he had done it deliberately and also made it clear I had no conclusive evidence that he had done it at all, another forum member was berthed inside of me and the time space when it could have occurred was narrow but could have been caused by another boat that only stayed a few minutes.

Re: Toe Rag ?

Thank you for your note.

I am very grateful for you taking the trouble to register and comment which is important for my peace of mind and for Clive's business.

It is yet another battle scar I will never know how it occurred but has to be accepted as running costs if you use a boat I guess.

Welcome to the forum /forums/images/graemlins/smile.gif

Mmm..not sure why that is. I'll re-check my settings.
The boat has now been antifouled (by Stuart). He did a good job a a reasonable price.
