The BoatNet centre

We have outgrown our place at Saxon Wharf (Southampton) and are looking to relocate to a bigger unit with more storage and better workshops and training facilities. We have found a very interesting place on the River, and it is our intention to turn this into a Rib\sportsboat centre.

We only intend to offer twenty Secure storage spaces ( 5 of which will be inside a building) and have placed 10 of these. So if anybody is looking for secure storage space please let me know. Our prices wont be any cheaper than the going rate but we are hoping that we can offer the best service possible by adding value.

One of our intentions is to provide a workshop facility for our customers (subject to H & S approval) equiped with engine hoists pillar drills etc so that they can do their own maintenance if needed.

If any body has any ideas in what they would like to see or have in a small boat facility please let me know as I would like to make it the coolest place around.

I wonder which will be the 'serious/anorak' centre and which the comic version?

I'd rather hoped they would be a shining exaple of symbiosis!

the final name will be decided depending on how many ribs/hardboats I get.

Right well I'm going to set up my own forum then and you can't be a moderator on it. So there! So I'll be the most important one. And I'm gonna be the super ultimate universal moderator. And I'm gonna give myself a billion stars after my name to show how important I am. So there.

There's nothing ostentatious about 5 gold stars after your name! especially when 20% of the membership have them.
