I will leave my boat
(sailboat pw / epoxy) 10.5 m ashore somewhere in the Ionians, eg Preveza or Messolonghi for winter (November to April) .
I contacted some yards, but I'm a bit surprised because they urge me to book now with a deposit of 10-20%.
Being in the med for a little over a year, I left the boat
for July and August and winter, and each time, I did not have to worry about booking, free places ashore being largely sufficient.
Making a bank transfer for a deposit to someone I do not know, several months in advance so that hazards can impose to change plans, seems risky to me.
So my question for those who have experience in the area.
Is there a shortage of which would require to make a reservation in advance ?
How soon is it necessary to do so?
Thank you in advance.
