I always like the fact a boat is accessible any time of day anytime of night, even if you want to just pop on down and sit on her and have a cuppa.. The joys of a berth..
Many a time myself and Caroline would pop out, unplanned anytime of day or night.

Anything, no matter how small it is has to be planned for in a drystack.. Unless you have a friendly yard manager who doesn't mind you climbing up and down it??

I do know that I don't conform with a lot of peoples views on boats, as I believe there are some people who even lay them up for a period of time every year.

FWIW Ray, I was always a Micron 77 man... But having taken a deeper interest in coppercoat and viewed probably in excess of 30 boats with it on, I know my next boat will be having coppercoat..

My Advise: Take the opportunity on a crap weekend and visit working yards and get chatting to the crane guys... Ask them..

A boat belongs on the water.. Big smile Not in the air.!!! LOL

very good points Dave but as I live a few miles away it has never been a problem and when we have popped down on the odd time and asked for the boat to be put in the water it has always been done within the hour so we sat in the cafe had a cuppa and watched it go it.

Parkers are that fast that only the back sits in the water !!! LOL

I think it will go into southsea marina   for the reason of sitting on the boat tying traces and the whole social side of the marina since the fishing club side of the marina has really taken off there thanks to both steves and andy

iv spoken to our man who does our copper coat applications and if your boat is brand new (which it is) then its a viable option. my reservations are because iv seen it on some older boats which it just peels off. but for new boat its very good. only issue I know is it used to be a 10 year guarantee, but now in the small print its 5 years.
if you want a price for it let me know and il get one for you.
