I noticed a leak on my stern tube the other day when i came back from a steam so went about seeking a lift out so i can repair it.
I got quotes from all the locals (im based in beaulieu) and was horrified to hear the prices.
All include lift out wash off, 2 weeks ashore and lift back in, 20 foot bilge keel Colvic.
Bucklers hard £450
Mdl marinas £340
Lymington YH £330
The list went on with nothing lower then £300
Luckily a friend of mine has offered to get it lifted at the yard he works for at 'mates rates' so i am saved for now, just wondered if anyone has any good recommendations for the future in case my friend cant help me in future.
If i have a problem again and need a lift out in a hurry, it would be handy not to have to do all this calling around.

If it is a quickie, out and back in within a couple of hours, use the Sea Lift at Gosport or Cowes. About £110 and they are very obliging. They also offer competitive polishing and antifouling.

Echo Snowys recomendation and some...
 
Sealift = SUPERB.
 
I am 21.5ft and lift, scrub, anode change (You supply anodes) and anything else you can complete in an hour = Less than £100 for our size..
 
The guys there are great, real hard working lads, and having used a few lift services before the only one i feel comfortable and happy with..
 
If you require longer than an hour, have a word with them and discuss being last boat lifted and first launched in the morning.
 
I use them for anti fouling my boat as well now.. Lift, clean, rub down, anti foul (You supply the paint) and relaunched after 3 coats less than £300 (For our size boat).
 
Only one suggestion from me... Sealift at Haslar...
 
Cheers

Cheers guys that's good to know, I will look into that for sure.
I need a couple of weeks on the hard this time but the next lift and scrub will be a different story.
Thanks again

Thanks Ahab, will give you a shout if i get stuck.
It should be pretty straight forward but you know how these things go with old boats.
I've already made a list of other work i could get done while its out, at this rate im going to miss the bream!
