    Joe Charlton Mmmmm now there a man I not sure I would have any dealing with.
    Met too many people over the years who don't seen to have much good words to say about him, although his Chandlers has a good stock of stuff but don't order any thing and expect it any time soon. Lol

    Don't think I said anything about being happy with it, simply the best price I could find at the time I had available. All 3 Preveza yards were full over the winter so that wasn't an option. I could have come out in Lefkas marina now as well but that was considerably more expensive!

    Sorry, it was not to be offensive, however, it does make you wonder why so many people fly into Athens, spend a lot of money, one way or another to travel there, then have to pay 30%-40% more to park their boat in an overcrowded sailing area. I spent 5 years there in the late nineties/early 2002 and it was crowded and expensive then.
    all the best.

    None taken, but thanks for mentioning it. I have my own reasons for being here now even though it has become very crowded for a short period of the year. I've no doubt it was better when you were here but it is still beautiful and a great sailing location for much of the year. Obviously I'd rather many people didn't come here during the peak period and that prices were lower but I can only deal with what I'm faced with now and make my own judgements of cost and value. Just replying to the OP question with current details in this area.
