Update Early Summer 2021
Written by Don Thomson 3 | 30th Jun 2021
I reviewed these notes at the end of June 2021. Prices have changed and as far as I can tell the Old Power Station Jetty is still a feature.
Update Spring 2019
Written by Don Thomson 3 | 14th May 2019
These notes were reviewed in May 2019. They've put their visitor's price up but that does include shore power if you have a long enough lead. I've been trying to discover the plans for the Inverkip Power Station Jetty but nobody seems to know other than it's scheduled for demolition sometime.
Visitor Berth Electricity
Written by Glynn Hugh | 8th Sep 2017
The visitor pontoon has very long fingers that can take up to three boats. If you are not the first in it is unlikely that your power cable will reach the outlet pedestal. The marina no longer has any extension leads for loan.

By Ed: Thanks Glynn - I've altered the text to indicate this

UPDATE APRIL 2017
Written by Don Thomson | 10th Apr 2017
I reviewed these notes in April 2017. They still haven't removed that Power Station jetty. The marina has put up its prices to £2.50 pempn.
Update 2015
Written by dononshytalk | 30th Mar 2015
These notes were reviewed by Don in March 2015. We have highlighted the removal of the Inverkip lum (thank goodness, it was an eyesore!) and members should note that Kip Marina has repainted their roofs red as before. We have checked with the marina and they say that the Kip green SHM is now relit (Fl G 5sec) They are maintaining last years prices for visitors (though they were increased in 2014)

No more chimney landmark
Written by Bryant | 6th Jan 2014
"Please be aware that the very tall chimney at Inverkip in the Firth of Clyde is no more having been demolished in 2013. Therefore the excellent landmark visible for miles night and day is no more." This was sent at 05/01/2014 19:54:16
Update 2013
Written by dononshytalk | 1st Mar 2013
These notes were updated by Don T on 1st March 2013. Note that the conspicuous red roofs are no more (but then again they may have been re-repainted!!). Only change is to the prices which have gone up slightly since we last wrote but have been held to the 2012 rates.

the two red roofs among the new housing have sadly now been painted cream also note that the light on the green starboard entry buoy is not very bright
