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?

Ambiguity.
A means of fining you for something that will take you 6 months to sort out in court! :roll:

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
