Thankyou for your posts.

Not looking to park anything big, was just looking for potential areas where i could find some dock work. Servicing/repairing yachts, boats etc.

C'mon, admit that's not really the "dock work" you had in mind.

Hondarribia has a big-ish port (not as big as any of the ones listed above mind) But there are lots of personal water-craft there. Nearby San Sebastian also has a port.

Cool, thanks again for the information. Have an interview next week for a job in South France on big yachts. Just Looking for alternatives if it doesn't work out.
