    Default Best place to dry out

    I have a weeping though-hull and would prefer not to suffer a lift out-in at £200 a throw to fix it.
    I have often dried out at Ilfracombe but is there anywhere comparable further up channel?

    there are drying out posts at both newport and chepstow, but I havent seen them used in some time.
    this post is a personal opinion, and you should not base your actions on it.

    Minehead.

    And Porlock is also good if you want to go through the lock for a couple of days.

    I am not sure about Appledore/Bideford.
    I think, therefore I am. I am, therefore I sail.

    Just paid our bill at the Evans Bay Boatyard here in Wellington NZ. 32 foot steel boat, lift, pressure wash, cradled, 3 weeks on the hard, free loan of ladder, work platforms, small compressor and free access to the scrap where suitable goodies like small good nick pieces of teak decking and marine ply were salvaged and re-used for jobs, relaunch.

    About 275 quid at todays exchange rate.

    I hate to think what it would have cost in Portsmouth-and the extras would have been on the bill!

    Looks a bit like the Avon?

    Any thoughts on Penarth Beach, near the pier for a boat that can take the ground? Looks like flattish sand/gravel.

    I have been considering this as it is close to Cardiff Bay mooring and I need to fit new anode and scrub bottom.
