are you talking about on a trailer or a mooring? pontoon or swinging trot?

Well that's something we don't see often. The same sentence using
both " Boat" and " cheap' in it !

Folkestone harbour dries out so I am assuming that you do not have a fin keel and are happy for the boat to sit on mud at low tide, if so Rye may also be an option.

Other possibilities are Newhaven or somewhere on the Medway where a river mooring is usually cheaper than a marina berth. Most of the main marinas on the South Coast i.e. Brighton, Eastbourne and Ramsgate would be out of the price range you have indicated.

Yeah I ment in the water mooring as I dont have a trailer, Urm the boat I'm getting I've seen a picture of it in a dried place (water gone) that seemed OK so i think it should be fine with tides going out.... I tried Medway, they put me through to ramsgate, tried dover, can't seem to find a number for hythe (haven) not sure if hythe is newhaven..... And I'm not sure about river mooring as I dont know any places near here that do it... its suprisingly a hard search on google to find out places that do boat mooring or something, maybe I'm not googeling it right... and yeah boat & cheap Haha, I'm not the richest of people, and since I've left the army I've had to start my own company to keep myself afloat, I have 5 children so money is very tight for me... so Hoping something quite low
