    I had some stuff done at Richardsons, very good, especially liked the chandlery and their engineers were good.
    The marina is nice too, short walk to the Folly, wifi a bit hit and miss.

    Thanks for your comments, I had previously written off going there because the public footpath goes through the marina hard standing, but now I see Richardsons is a seperate yard, so looking good. And they have a cherrypicker

    +1 for Richardson's at Island Harbour Marina. Terry was very helpful and available via email or phone as they did quite a bit of work for me last winter when I was living overseas.

    We are on A21 in the marina, Birchwood TS37 'Miratea', 24/7 usually.

    edited to add. if you join IHYC it gives local discounts including at Richardsons and drinks at the 'Breeze' restaurant.

    I'm sure if you ask you can get in the yard behind the gate, I was opposite the office.
    But it's not like it's all locked in behind fences. It's not boat-ditz.

    You might well find that the chandler on site is a bigger gain than the small risk of crime. Anywhere else on the iow and you will be driving to Cowes for the sake of a nut.

    Also, having been to a few marinas where a yard attached would have been useful, the setup they have there is certainly a rare thing.

    Double check on the cherry picker though, I don't remember seeing one and it was only this May.
