Just had invoice for this year's charges - apart from the fact they're charging me for the wrong type of mooring I don't remember getting an earlier letter where you could get discount (I think it was 7%) for early payment.

Have they stopped doing this or did I just not get a letter?

thanks
Frank

You can afford to stay there? /forums/images/graemlins/shocked.gif

Just had a look at their list of charges - to keep Guapa there for a year would be just over 8K /forums/images/graemlins/frown.gif

I'm on the semi-tidals...still not cheap though. Going through messy divorce and hoping to keep the boat, it's the only thing keeping me sane at the moment

I looked at keeping the last boat there a year ago. Too dammn expensive for somewhere in the middle of nowhere. Fair haul down the river to the sea. Miles to the pub, just the Cafe Lulworth with posssibly the dumbest bar staff I've ever come across. Did a much better deal at Campers in Gosport.

I don't remember receiving the discount letter but had put it down my pathological disorganisation.

Personally, I like Universal/Crableck. It's a relatively quiet part of the river - very green, away from both the hurly burly of the river mouth and the build-up Swanwick area. I've never minded the 20 minute chug down the river. Gives me time to get my act together and get the children to bring the fenders in.

I'm a bit biased, I suppose; Crableck is the closest marina to home; a very short bike ride.

Considering it's £850 pa just to tie up a tender there I reckon your 8k is a bargain!
