    Well, it's an easy trip, doesn't take long, Burnham's quite nice for a walk, and has a few decent places to eat, and it's a change of scenery. The fact that it's a free stay is just a bonus.

    Bear in mind that if you wish to use the lightship as a berth holder, you will need to be a member of HPYC

    Do either of them have funny rules about who can and can't work on your boat? I know Burnham did at one time, so it's possible that shotley might. If you like a specific engineer or whoever to work on your boat, it may be a problem if he/she is not allowed in.
    If found in the Brexit forum, please return to the real world.

    Both Shotley and SYH have punitive terms and conditions, much of which is unenforceable. I believe both allow sub-contractors to work on boats as long as they notify the marina first (and possibly pay a fee for the privilege!).

    I'm not aware of any local marinas that do not allow sub-contractors on site. Most require contractors to sign in and most (though not all) will ask for a copy of the contractors insurance.

    Some boatyards don't allow sub contractors on site, but that's somewhat understandable, the local main dealers won't let freelance mechanics into their workshops either

    Shotley, Woolverstone, Titchmarsh, Neptune and several others in the area charge a fee, varying from £8 to £25 per day (or part thereof).

    Brightlingsea, Fambridge and Ipswich Haven don't make a charge.

    Foxs are the most punitive by far, they charge £15 per hour, plus VAT !

    The last time Shotely's terms and conditions were post here it still included the claim for a percentage of the value of any boats sold on the premises
    Substance over style

    Yes, that's still in their T&Cs, despite being completely unenforceable.

    Worse still if the gongoozlers have cameras. Appropriate name though.

    Far away is near at hand in images of elsewhere

    I guess we've all done that sort of thing at some time. A lot of people seem to be unable to predict the effect of the wind on their boat, and so don't put the correct line on first.
