MOORINGS

We have a limited number of mainstream moorings available for private craft. Although the boats are breasted out from the bank we usually have our main jetty available for loading, fuelling and disembarking. Assistance to leave or return to the moorings is always available. Subject to size and weight considerations the natural tendency is for the boats used most often to occupy the outer berths and the long term static boats to remain on the river bank.
We have no minimum contract apart from a 4 week notice period.
The minimum length (for charging purposes is 7.62 meters (approx. 25ft.) (afloat)
Boats under this size are usually accommodated on trailers on the hardstanding and launched and recovered by us as required. (no Minimum)
There are many advantages in this arrangement for a small boat. The cost of antifouling is avoided. The boats are not subject to damage caused by wash from passing boats and the hulls remain dry thereby avoiding the costly problem of osmosis.
There is no minimum length in this case and the launching service is free.

DRY STORAGE

We have a considerable area of dry storage where boats can be safely worked on, repaired, re-painted and generally refurbished.
Most prudent owners will have their craft lifted ashore during the winter to allow the hulls to dry out and carry out essential maintenance work.
We can Crane Lift boats up to 12 Tons (26 ton crane) or use our slipway for small craft on trailers.
Access is available 365 days of the year. Power and water is available at all parts of the site.
No minimum length or period, just 4 weeks notice required for leaving.

Please see our NEW SITEfor current rates.

SECURITY

Unfortunately, nothing is safe these days, but as we have a constant presence in the Yard we are able to monitor our visitors and we hope to keep problems to a minimum. Last but by no means least our dogs, until recently, Boss our yard dog, German Shepherd, Jack, our German Shepherd living next door, plus Lucy and other various breeds usually around. As you may have gathered we are rather fond of German Shepherds. Kathy was a trustee of "VIGIL", a rescue centre for German Shepherds and all our dogs have come from that centre. None of them were vicious but all would raise the alarm and deter undesirable characters. Electronic devices are now employed. Some of the pictures below feature our canine friends. Recently the size of the dogs have got smaller and we have some interesting Jack Russells and miniature Dachshund which are very good at raising an alarm when strangers are in the yard.

FLOODS

Yes we did get flooded in 2000/2001 - Who didn't, but we were fortunate, nothing was lost or damaged and the flood only reached "wellyboot" height. Access to all the boats was maintained and none of them suffered any damage.
UPDATE: 2002/2003
Wellyboots not enough this time - waders or dry suits were the order of the day. 3 inches to go before the office flooded. Pictures Click Here.


If you need a mooring or hardstanding we have space available at the moment. You may contact us, give us a ring or pop in and have a chat.
