    The cost of the cover is roughly the same as the cost of a full clean and polish, so i'd let it get grubby on the way there, and pay someone to valet it when in France. That way you get a shiny boat ready for the season.

    Which shipping company did you use? How much notice do they need?

    Ibiza is a stunning place to keep a boat, not quite as good where we are now, but it was still 17C yesterday and pretty calm conditions, compared to god knows what back in the UK.

    Best decision we ever made was to move.

    Welcome to the forum. I'm using Coast to Coast; I'm fairly flexible with my dates, and so far they've offered two dates, both with a couple of weeks notice. Unfortunately both the dates they've offered have been a bit too quick for me, but it's looking promising for next month.

    Cheers

    Thanks Jimmy, we are hoping to do the same trip end of May so pleased to know what you think of them. Good to know notice periods are short.

    I used C2C to transport my Targa from Torquay to Sant Carles, they did an excellent job at both ends at a very competitive price. It was cheaper to have them take my F43 from Gib to SCM, but unfortunately they could not hit the dates, so Hurricane and Mary joined us to bring her around, almost a year ago to the day.

    Hope it all goes well for you, I'm out next Wednesday, can't wait.......
