I heard over the weekend that one Solent based marina currently has around 40 berths still available (around 15% of the total), and they have been advertising in the local media. This has to be the first time this has happened for many years.

It's part of a large group, but I don't suppose it will lead to a resduction in prices!!

Interesting, I am lead to believe that Drivers Wharf not far away is now nearly full because they have taken on yachts and power boats.

Drawback on their web site seems to be "dry stack" undercover only

[/ QUOTE ] No the original Drivers Wharf yard is the one you can see from the Northam Bridge. Its ashore storage but not under cover so any size of vessel can be catered for, even yachts with masts.

I won't go near the other lot.

Was down at OV at the weekend. Still lots of empty spaces. Maybe they're still off for the winter. Very windy so not too many out and about.

Might be something to do with the forthcoming hotel being built. I did hear some berth holders had moved out for the duration. Not confirmed though.
