Hi Mate,
Yeh, Tonys the way to go. Always very busy tho which is good on one hand if you see what I mean but a pain in the arse if your in a rush. Really helpful chap to I've used him a few times. One thing is that if he says it will be ready at 2pm dont turn uop before 5!
Cheers
Dan

Cheers

I kept a boat with them 2 yrs ago, on the hardstand tho over mount batten (ideal for the slipway), cost didnt seem to bad but tbh cant really remember how much it was!!!
You could try Queen Annes battery, but very yellow welly bunch and might not be cheap, couple of others are Rocky Pinder (spelling!) rough and ready but may be cheap, or on the way to M. Batten you go past a garage in Hooe, he has a storage area close by, I now someone who kept a R21 with them, could be worth a call. Drop me a line if you ever looking for a second boat to go out with.

well, as I happens my boat is parked next to a caravan that never moves and I have thought about putting an awning on that to make a little plastic garage!

Weymouth is my favourite place. Waters normally pretty flat and the town slip is excellent! Bit of a drive though
