    Default Is there a Well stocked chandlery on the upper Thames?

    As the title says really. Some of us are recommissioning this weekend and as Espar at Harleyford donít open bank holidays and weekends from now on, just wondered what our options are. Really impressed with Sheridan at Moulsford but itís a bit of a drive from Marlow if you need something small like a nut and bolt.
    We're all in the same boat......some of us have just been aboard a little longer.

    Penton Hook Marina has one. Apart from that, the so called "chandlers" have very limited stock. Nauticalia, opposite Weybridge, has a lot of stock bit it's more like a fancy goods/gift shop.

    I didn’t realise Penton have one. That’s useful as I drive past there on the way to the boat. Thanks for that.

    There's one at Shepperton Marina if you happen to go anywhere nearby.

    There's the one at Kennet and Avon but I've never found it particularly well-stocked.

    Has anybody tried these guys?: https://www.readingmarinechandlery.co.uk/

    Phill - I'm guessing you are at Harleyford - we moved there last July.

    Sad to see harleyford go, they are talking basic chandlery in office. If its like the pitiful shelf at bray with 2 bottles polish don't bother.

    Yes we are. Been there for about ten years now. Weíve spoken before at Henley and also about when you were based in Weymouth. Is that correct? Love Harleyford but hope they get these issues sorted out soon.

    I don't suppose they will - reading between the lines, there's not a lot of movenemt in boat sales or chandlery either...
    (I'll probably get shouted at, later)
