I don’t like to leave anyone dangling and I’m sure that goes for most other members. However if you are struggling or have already committed yourself I have to say that your best hope is to find a yard fairly near and pay for it to be kept ashore. I suspect that if a yard did have a spare mooring at this time of year, and those with storage ashore probably need every inch of space for boats returning to the water, I suspect that they would want to see you first and have the money up front.
The only practical approach I would suggest is to find somewhere like Wayford and get them to arrange with a trailerman who they trust to collect the boat by road and bring it to them. It won’t be in the water for you to use but the yard would have some redress if everything turns to worms
This presumes that you have paid for the boat otherwise I cannot see the existing yard releasing the boat although they might also charge you or the previous owner extra to move it to a more favorable spot if they have one.

Hi there Rebel An ol'e timer ere givin you some advice. Don't sell out cheap as them that know what they are abute will under cut to get the next bit o biz avalabubble just stick to your own standards if you need lunch in their time then eat it and charge for it.
PM had to PM this bit cause don't want all to witness. As business tactics might get like the ships cat, out of the bag, "was it the arguin over suppliyin a lunch that put you off the deal?" Only Marge does a very good pack up (not to much hard earned) You'd have Soda Bread cold streaky (the delux package has that cooked crispy)half a pig belly rasher ( ole Parge uses the lean bit for bait) and all held nicely together with the Beef suet from Parges finest Sunday Roast. If its the Lunch that's holding you back then it's sorted so take the job on. We will have to finish the PM now or I recon thy will think we are gossipin behind their backs. Open forum Kindest regards Marge and Parge
