Update Spring 2019

Weedy bottom!
Written by dashhouse | 26th Jun 2018
I anchored here during storm Hector in June 2018. There is plenty of room, the bottom is thick weed, but offers surprisingly good holding nevertheless (if you put enough chain down!). I did use a tripping-line as advised above, but it seemed unnecessary and was a bit of a nuisance.

By Don: I know, a tripping line can be a bit of a nuisance but it seemed sensible with all the moorings around. Thanks for the info about the weed!
July 2017 visit

The north seaward pontoon (according to the HM) has 1.5 m of water at CD with a 5m rise at springs. It also has a fresh water hose (all be it from a 2nd tap and long hose from the first house after the pontoon walkway. Just inside the gate). The HM has a launch for collecting dues and is very helpful. £15 a night for a mooring. Honesty boxes at both pontoons. The south pontoon dried out at LW springs during our stay so no good for our rubber dinghy.

By Don: We do mention the problem with the water on that pontoon?
UPDATE APRIL 2017
Written by Don Thomson | 13th Apr 2017
I reviewed these notes in April 2017. Those who visited in earlier years (or who are using old charts) will be interested in the removal of the Hawk Rock SHM. It's still £15 a night for a mooring.
