Yes Red Cow the choice is mine. Or anybody else's. But this is a discussion forum and we like to chew over changes. So it doesn't matter if you "support the thread" as you put it, or not - it's a topic the OP brought here for discussion.

Fully respect your personal view that the charge is acceptable to you.

I'm with Karen and Mike on this, apart from the fact that in this day and age they are going to take a lot of money off anyone who moors and eats and drinks there, a £15 charge for stern on mooring at a busy noisy mooring that has no electricity (or does it now) no facilities other than toilet is a lot any way. I have no problem paying for moorings and always moor at the Yacht Stations in Oulton Beccles and Norwich, I think a pub charging and not refunding against a substantial is a disgrace but as Marshy says, plenty of people will so good luck to them. Personally that attitude will stop me visiting even by car and I'm sure others will feel the same.
I really did think we would come out of Covid better people but I'm afraid Karen's comment of Rip Off Britain is true in so many areas of life.

No refunds! Wow, I won't be going there then!

Perhaps a daytime parking/mooring limit of two or three hours would be prudent.

Re profiteering, are they really? In business surely the name of the game is that investments provide a profit?

With landlords demanding huge rents from tenants, it is hardly surprising that assets are milked.

Do I agree? No, it's greed, and it's not limited to pubs.

A few years ago I attended a tolls review as did the proprietor of a large yard. He openly bragged that he did not anti-foul the bottom of his boats. That saved him a small fortune in slipping and paint but also the weed growth meant that his customers subsequently used more diesel, diesel that he sold at a premium price.

This reminds me why I rarely venture up on the northern rivers, the beer price seems to go up as soon as you pass GY too, once we are in a pub we generally don't leave till closing time and don't drink slowly either, a pub bill for us is normally £80+ for an evening (including a meal each) at the best of times so I'm not about to start paying to visit before even going in.
Looks like the new inn will be off the list if I bother to venture that way.

Isn't that just capitalism?

Unfortunately, we live in a world of finite resources and unlimited acquisition for everyone is simply not sustainable but we are reaping what has been sown!

We moored at The New Inn twice over Christmas and probably spent over £300 in the periods we were there. I liked everything about the place but would maybe have to think about it now , depending on the agreed charge. What I do know is that for all those who are categorically now refusing to go there, well then that is just another mooring spot for those who are willing to pay. Im not in favour of being allowed to pre-book a mooring more than 24hrs in advance as it probably means that just a chance spot being available whilst passing is highly unlikely.

£10 is not an unreasonable charge for a well maintained mooring, and when attached to a pub I would imagine that most of that charge is accrued for the inevitable day when the big expense comes, to replace the quay heading.
Therefore to refund that charge is in effect giving a preferential discount to those who arrive by boat.
Maybe those that arrive on foot should request a £10 discount for not bringing a boat?

It's also what causes inflation, so has to be balanced quite carefully. Thin end of the wedge, what next? Do they charge you for renting the table your sat at or the glasses you drink from?

I would guess no; since all customers require these services irrespective of whether they have already enjoyed a £10 free mooring.
