RS - Park & Ride - October 2014
"Park and ride is a great service. Your boat is kept on a trailer in the secure boat yard. When you arrive the guys connect trailer to a tractor and launch you. At the end of the day you ring them 10 mins before arriving back at the Marina and the tractor and trailer are there to put you back in the secure parking area. No problems with fouling on the underside using this method."
