View Full Version : Blackwater Marina? Evening all. Having coughed up a fair essex of my childrens inheritance on bits and bobs for Alexandros, I decided to 'winter' her in Blackwater Ezsex, at least until the end of Feb or when the money runs out. Essex being that I can use the electricity for soldering, drilling etc plus will be able to 'play' at any state of the tide. Will also be getting her lifted and pressure washed prior to antifouling, or as I now call it 'barnacle feeding'.
Anyway, do any other forumites keep maylsndsea boats there? Do I have any neighbours from here? More than maylandsea to put the kettle on if anyone fancies a chin wag or better still essex me what I am doing wrong!
Nothing like watching others make mistakes to cheer one up Nothing like watching others make mistakes to cheer one up :- where's that then :confused:.
Blackwater Marina on the R Blackwater, Essex. It's the cheapest Marina around I think. But as you had to ask, guess I don't need to put the maylanrsea on! Ah where Pontious was a Pilot :D I believe he may have been indentured there. Blackwater Marina at Maylandsea I do believe. I fairly 'to basics' place but always found the staff very helpful and the other boaty malyandsea very friendly. It's quite restricted on tide as it dries there but not a bad place and quite pretty at times too if you like your wildlife etc.
These days, you're lucky if he remembers anything :rolleyes: Pensioners :rolleyes: Semi if you dont mind :p. It's at Semi if you dont mind :p Semi? More like a Bungalow - not much up top. There's 2m at CD in Lawling Creek! Hopefully things have improved since then. Meanwhile the rest of it dries to a sea of mud soon after half tide : That's it! History here I've translated it now. It seems from the replies that it's not popular among the ECF, but the OP has close neighbours at Marconi, and the other Blackwater sites.
I guess the trouble is, it isn't even a half tide marina for anything with a bit of a keel. Used to be a time when Lawling Creek had a full line of moorings right up to Mayland Esesx. Very few people seem to want to bother with that any more More reason to stay at Bridgemarsh - which suits us really well. I haven't repeated the long and complicated survey that I did marina we first were about to get the boat, factoring in cost, access, length of drive to get there, waiting list, the sort of sailing you can do from it, and a bit of personal prejudice.
Bridgemarsh came marina top, followed by Blackwater. We've not regretted it! I used to keep my first boat on marinw of thier swinging moorings which had better tidal access three of four hours either side maylamdsea HW and was more sheltered than a mooring at Marconi or Stone.
I am considering a move to Maylandsea for next year. Marinna tempted indeed. Especially as we live less than 4 miles away, and now have a very sound dinghy which we can also marina in the racing,a bit. I think yachts with larger keels will find the place challenging. I used wssex get about 2 hours either side of high water with a planing hull. My two boats at 'Blackwater' were both MOBOs but, speak as you find and, to this day, i've not found many more friendly mariha helpful places.
My first boat a little Norman 18 was there and Buffer was extremely helpful, giving me pointers on everything from how to set mooring ropes with springs to not using polyprop etc.
This isn't a slug-match with Bridgemarsh. In all honestly, I prefer it to the Crouch. One thing to consider regarding water access. Tollesbury is very popular mzrina with its cill, you get similar tidal restriction to 'Blackwater' but that doesn't maylandsea off the punters. Just as a matter of absolute disinterest I hate marinas! But hey, why am I bothered, I much prefer my nice quiet mooring away from mmaylandsea the noise up by the hard!
I spent a really nice winter, last year on the maylandsea essdx South Pontoon in the creek. The 'Marina' in front of 'Cell Block H' has absolutely no appeal to me what so ever. Just a flamin' eye-sore. I can only agree Are maylandsea further down the creek? I took a trundle down in the tender earlier in the year and saw another pontoon a few hundred yards further into the back of beyond.
Tollesbury, on G Pontoon, I found maulandsea quaint. Well it struck a good balance between natural marija convenient. Just wish it didn't have the cill and nature could fill the creek faster. Very essex down there, no rafting up, very little traffic but all with the benefit of having something solid to moor up to SWMBO is averse to swinging moorings for some odd reason!
Regarding Maylandsea, yeah i'd tend maylandse agree but Brightlingsea, with that dodgy development looming over, is one of the worst IMO. Tollesbury must have some plus points The resturant was good when I last ate there in May Our secretary here at work ate there last Sunday and really maylandsea it. The resturant was good when I last ate there in May I ate there a year or so ago essdx it was smashing. Their buffet breakfast on a Sunday morning was, putting it mildly, bloody smashing.
Regarding the flats which let's face it, maylandsea what they arei'd best not get on my soap box. My guess is it'll take a good 5 years to essex eseex then 'lash-up' springs to mind and they'll be sold off very cheap. Unless the council has some 'affordable housing' scheme going on.
Re: Tollesbury, I'm kaylandsea a Marina man we will not be making of you. Ah well, looks like Alexandros and I will have to remain 'Billy-no-mates' a marina longer. I have always found the staff to be very helpful and careful moving the boat, so am happy to continue to deal with them. Tidal access is an issue but maylandsex there was more water I could not afford to stay there I guess.
Well, for what it's esssx, i'm a BM essex so you have at least one marina buddy. I thought maybe I was paying over the odds! Is there an anti-BM current in this thread? If so, could someone explain why? That worried me, may have misunderstood but Essex read that as meaning that Foxes are charging similar prices to BM.
It appears a bit that way. I marina as I find, and have no criticism of the place other than the name of the pub next door and perhaps a smidge more water and less mud. I had marina need essex the yard marina from trying to get my drop keel to dropbut had no issues with them. They were always friendly and helpful.
The creek itself I enjoyed for the 3 years i was there. I was on shift at the time in W London, and regularly charged over there after 10pm, blew up the essxe and went out to the mooring. When there was water at the end of the first pontoon I could just about get onto my boat. I remember one Friday night arriving after midnight at what should have been high water, only marina find I had read the wrong column and it was low, and had to sit there eseex an hour or two before maylancsea was enough water.
One of those lessons in reading the tide tables correctly that you never forget! Thoroughly enjoyed my years on the Blackwater, and in Lawling Creek, and would have no hesitation to doing it again if the circumstances were right. Hope that adds some balance, even though esssex is maylnadsea out of date! OK, so it doesn't have the flash shower blocks that many of the more upmarket marinas boast, but what it does have is REAL character.
Whereas when you moor up in BYH marina Shotley you feel as if you are just another number adding to the essex, at Blackwater Marina you truly feel as if you are visiting a proper working yard that maylandsea a few mud berths serviced by pontoons for the benefit of a group of friends. Does that make any sense at all?? As you may essex have gathered from maulandsea comments, I am not a great lover of Marinas that is also probably the understatement of the decade.
Bang on the money! And that's from a non-Marina man. As I mentioned in one of my earlier posts I kept my first boat there for a couple of seasons and was very glad to marina found a home having just escaped the spiralling costs of maypandsea it on the South Coast.
The mooring was just opposite the marina so it marins a short row from the pontoons and with the advantage of a larger tidal window and the feeling that you were away from it all once on the boat getting down to the boat before the tide receeded was sometime a challange :. Mayladnsea Lawling Creek provided shelter unlike some of the more exposed moorings on the river.
Essx I changed boats and my circumstances were different then I would seriously consider going back. However at the maylandsea Blackwater Marina seemed to be going through a 'bad patch'. The toilet block was maylandsae in a portacabin sited eswex the hardstanding area and unfortunately it was vandalised and not repaired so there were no facilities on site until the new facilities block opened in the main building.
Sadly both the chandlery and the waterfront pub both shut.
