Update March 2022
Written by Don Thomson 3 | 31st Mar 2022
I reviewed these notes at the end of March 2022. The UKHO charts of Wicor Marine should be viewed with scepticism as they have had walk ashore pontoons there for at least two years and one of the charts doesn't show them. I've put a chartlet in the Nav images to help. Their prices remain the same..

I reviewed these notes in March 2020. The multitude of charts for Wicormarine still exists but the layout on their website is still the most accurate. I queried the lights in Fareham Lake with the QHM and I see they have issued a Notice to the effect that they are no longer lit. Prices have been updated and a new chart uploaded.

Update Spring 2019
Written by Don Thomson 3 | 23rd May 2019
These notes were reviewed in May2019. The pontoons at Wicormarine have been improved and there i now a Visitors pontoon connected to the shore. We've added a Wicormarine pontoon layout chart to the gallery. We have uploaded the latest UKHO chart for this area but none of the charts for this area agree.

There are new prices in some of the places but overall they seem to have stayed pretty static. There are new charts
