    Good to see Ian and Alex out on the Pontoons checking our boats in this wind. Re-fixing fenders and checking lines and covers

    The spamming by MDL is getting worse by the week, for me they spam every item twice!
    Lord knows what will happen when they get into gear spamming their 4 boat sale events that may get to go ahead this year!

    Yes, I quite like that format. It is certainly better than the silence from other marina managers and the mostly banal postings from head office spammed across all their Marinas' Facebook pages simultaneously.

    Seconded with respect to the 'Tuesday updates', and it would be great for the other marinas to follow suit.

    2 x FREE FOLDING BIKES

    We’ve got a couple of folding bikes going spare.
    We’re selling our boat so just emptying everything off it.

    They’re FREE but they do need some love and attention - haven’t been used since July 2020. Some rust, flat tyres, bits need a bit of oil.

    The boat’s in Ocean Village - if anyone’s interested, let me know.

    Hi Stinkpot, Berthing Plus Otium is our new recommended berthing package for all new berth holders. It includes 8 weeks storage ashore at MDL boatyards and the ability to earn points that can be redeemed as discounts against any of MDL's services.

    As an existing Freedom berthing customer you have the choice of remaining on a standard Freedom Berthing agreement with the benefits applicable to that product, or move to the new Berthing Plus Otium product where you will be given points for the services you purchase.

    These points can be redeemed against MDL service as discounts. The choice is yours and will depend on how you use your berth. So please go to the online calculator to see which scheme works out best for you.

    A great addition to the forum from MDL's point of view if looking only in the short term for sure.

    It is a significant reduction in benefits (aka a disguised price rise).

    It is opaque about the benefits - even MDL staff struggle to explain it. If you can explain why it's better than freedom berthing for the boater then I'm all ears.

    Why do I say short term? It's simple. MDL is expensive, but has great staff and with the freedom berthing package represents a package I'm prepared to pay for. If you force me off freedom berthing onto Otium then this "great addition to the portfolio" and the price rise it represents will have driven this customer of many years away.

    And it's a shame. Otium is OK as a concept. People have taken advantage of freedom berthing and MDL wanting a mechanism to put a cap on the swapped nights is not unreasonable.

    But the Otium rewards given to the boater demonstrate a greedy reduction in boater benefit by MDL. Nothing great about it from this boater's point of view.

    A little over zealous with the salt \ grit spreading on the pontoons this morning if moored stern to your stern will be coated with a thick coating ... as it is dry right now it can be easily swept off. If not be aware of damage to your teak gel coat mooring lines etc

    Very sorry to see that Scott is retiring and leaving next month. He has done a great job. Paul has a hard act to follow, especially trying to sort out this Otium mess.
