Ramehead Mooring - Portsmouth

From time to time I come across references to this location, but I cannot find it on the charts on Visit My Harbour. Can someone clarify its position in the Portsmouth area please?

Of Plymouth. Not a place I would expect a mooring. It is given as the second landfall in the passage up Channel in most versions of the song 'Spanish Ladies.' Also the vicinity of the loss of the Ramillies, the tune of which I stole for my ballad of the Herald of Free Enterprise disaster.

It may refer to the buoy that HMS Rame Head was secured to in Portsmouth Harbour for many years?

Yes, from what I have read I think this is probable, but where is that?

From photographs on the net I suspect that it was off Whale Island, close to where HMS Bristol is now

If anyone can place where the RFA BLACK ROVER is at the moment, she was moved there a few days ago.

Hi Bob,
Both the Black and Gold Rover are on the Sultan Moorings, just off Hardway, Gosport - as of this morning. (Sailed on both - happy days).
