Boat Storage

Hi everyone,

Could you please help me out, I'm in a bit of a pickle.

I had storage for my boat sorted, it was outside storage for a trailered boat and now some numb nut at the yard has told me after taking my deposit that they will be replacing this space with a container because it is more profitable. Tango Whisk Alpha Tango

Does anyone have and idea where I can go and not pay the earth because all the boat yards and dry stack guys are unfortunately a bit out of my budget. Any suggestions would be great.

I am looking for yard storage in the Portsmouth, Southampton, Gosport type area or maybe just a little further out.

Cheers to anyone reading with a good suggestion

There is a place on the marchwood (southampton) industrial estate called strong room self storage that take boats 02380 861622.
They might be able to help.

Drivers? Going by some of the hunks of crap in there (alongside the many beautiful craft!) I can't imagine they charge the earth!

So your saying that storage is not cheap at Drivers?

I always thought it was very competitive!

I can't quite believe you posted that!

There have been people who've paid good money for some of the worst 'crap' ever seen there, but then you'd know that, wouldn't you.
