    Thanks for all the replies, after looking at the suggestions I think Island Harbour will do us nicely.
    Thanks again.

    We are based on the Hamble, but our local favorites are East Cowes and Yarmouth.

    The eatery there is ok, not my kind of place. Bit lifeless.

    A nice walk to Whippingham Church where you can see Uffa Fox grave.

    Walk into Newport, there's a fancy Michelin star restaurant, Thompsons but Scarrots Lane bakery is better for sticky buns etc.

    You're only a couple of miles from Osborne House, English Heritage, if not members its quite expensive, but nice restaurant and nice down at the beach. Lovely Grounds.

    See the mahoosive building on the opposite bank, that'll be me working in there, gis a wave.

    Beaulieu will give you some peace and quiet! Love that place.

    As others have mentioned , but I would disagree with the Hamble, seems a place to keep your craft ( convienant ) rather than to visit ,

    MDL Mercury on the Hamble may be worth consideration, but possibly too quiet, there is no bar or food there at the moment so it's a (relatively pleasant) 20 min walk into Hamble-le-Rice for that sort of thing.

    Northney is very tranquil if that is really what you are after. Chichester harbour is v. pretty and quiet once away from the main thoroughfare. If the weather is good then I would give that a serious consideration.
    Lymington is fine..but the town is 200 metres away..that is plus and minus depending !

    No one has mentioned Yarmouth - delightful, but better mid week - avoid at weekends if you want peace and quiet.
    Interested in Corvettes PM me for details of the Corvette Motorboat Association
