I see the council have had a sense of humour bypass down at Calsot...

Being a tight Fifer, looks like I'm going to have to find a way to cut 0.2m off my Honwave :lol:

I'm not sure 0.2m will help mate?
They seem to be taking the whole package into consideration....boat, trailer and tow vehicle.
Being a local i have a parking permit/clock so not sure how this would affect me?
But it looks like it's gon'a cost me £30 to launch this lot. (and that ain't happening :rofl )

They even want £1 per person just to land on the jetty!

. . .
Mine is folded up and inside the vehicle, not trailered; and even my motorhome is less than 7m

But to me it's not clear whether the launch fee includes the vehicle parking or whether you have to pay both?

Andy
The beginnings of things to come I'm afraid :roll: :no
Various sites along the south coast are implimenting charges, even on public slips we've already paid for them to build :-x
At least our sibs are easy to wheel about, launch and 'dodge' these restrictions/charges :idea:
Thanks for the info :thumbsup
:cheers
