Most marinas do not make it clear if they charge for bow sprits or not. Can the gaffers put together Gaffer a list of gaffer friendly places.
I would suggest colour coding Green or( *** ) for those that don not charge for the front stick. Yellow ( ** )for those who give a discount or if it does not get in the way. and red or ( X ) for those who charge full amount.
Pleas post what your local marina dose for the help of those travailing out side local waters.
If a complete list was complied it may be worth putting in the Gaffer Log
Let me start the list with HOLYHEAD Marina, Anglesey.
24 hour deep water access, easy access to the visitors berths.
Very friendly rates for gaffers
We receive exceptional support from the marina for "Gaffers at Holyhead" each year.
Additionally, Holyhead Sailing Club is very user friendly and welcomes visitors, and has a special relationship with the OGA
