I reviewed these notes in September 2021. No changes but I've found a Youtube drone video which will give you a good idea of what you are heading for.
Update Summer 2019
Written by Don Thomson 3 | 26th Jul 2019
These notes were reviewed in July 2019. There are no changes - not even the prices.

I reviewed these notes in April 2017. Still the same though very unlikely to meet a cargo vessel on the way.
Update 2015
Written by dononshytalk | 23rd Apr 2015
These notes were reviewed by Don in April 2015. They are holding their prices and are very cheap at 10 Euros per night for a 10 metre boat
Update December 2013
Written by dononshytalk | 10th Dec 2013
These notes were reviewed and added to by Don Thomson on the 10th December 2013. We are told that the commercial traffic has reduced since we first wrote up this harbour (and certainly since the author ventured up there in the mid nineties) so you are unlikely to meet any opposite direction traffic - but check with the marina.
