Well, its is nice to know that Womack will be quieter next year.  People do not seem to mind paying for mooring there, albeit less than the New Inn, but without the the samwe facilities.  The quay heading is being replaced there next month, the last time it was done was less than 20 years ago.   My quay heading only lasted 12 years.

A bad day on the water is better than a good day in the office.

Will they be employing somebody to control the moorings?
Maybe yes and the fee is to cover their wages?
They won’t have anybody to control the car park so they will be able to have free parking?
This could be the answer that you can park free with a car but have to pay to moor a boat?

Bella, reasonable point, but they have always had someone controlling the moorings, It's a cost thart's built into the general wages bill, as are the glass collectors waitresses, waiters, bar staff etc.

if it is to be it is up to me.

The person who used to control the moorings doesn't work there now. He moved to the Ferry. Maybe he has negotiated a new contract Smile . There were only three boats moored at the New Inn  over Christmas and the manager told me that it was like "parking wars".

it would have an expected life of 20 years, that is £1000 per year, lets say 18 weeks peak season, thats £55 per week, thats 5.5 boats at £10 as I said profiteering (greed).
Maybe years ago but since the additives that were impregnated into the timber were banned arsnic and the like, the timber above the water only lasts around 5 years

TT, I fully agree with you that an employee working on the mooring would be built in their wage cost but this employee is still an extra cost to the wage bill and has to be payed for.

hedgehog, “The person who used to control the moorings doesn’t work there now.” “Maybe he has negotiated a new contract.”

The New Inn is now owned by The Stonegate Group, they state
“We are the largest pub company in the UK and employ thousands of staff across our Pubs, Bars, Clubs and Pub Support Centre.”

As a major company I would imagine that they have a large Health and Safety department.Also I would expect that an official receipt would be given with a VAT number.
Tax and VAT would then have to deducted from the mooring fee.

Maybe one of our members within the trade could give us more info.

There is tanalising as it used to be, and tanalising as it is now!!

A 10 year life is probably about right these days, certainly to maintain a decent quality.

For what its worth and knowing the cost of piling, I don't see a lot of profiteering, especially when people will still pay up and the quay will still be pretty full.
You want a facility, you pay for it - not drop 10 bob in an honesty bow if you think about it!!!

"...especially when people will still pay up and the quay will still be pretty full."

I suspect it will be full of hire boats, not private boats. So be it. People coming on holiday tend to open their wallets rather more easily than they do at home.

I would be prepared to pay a mooring fee at a pub, IF the food was head-and-shoulders above the 'normal' quality of offering and so worth the premium. I rarely find that to be the case in these waterside pubs.

Been hit by another boat? Report the incident to the Marine Accident Investigation Branch’s dedicated accident reporting line on 023 8023 2527 which is monitored 24 hours a day.  Help to make the Broads safer.

Bella, my comment about him negotiating a new contract was purely tongue in cheek (see smile that followed it ). I would think if the person could sit or stand on the quay heading all day , drinking beer, then they would need to charge considerably more than £15 per boat ????. Paladine, in my humble opinion , their food , presentation and attitude are head and shoulders above what I’ve experienced locally. I, as a private boater would still moor there. If others choose not to , then that’s entirely up to them and I will gladly have their spot.

hedgehog, our experiences, or perhaps our expectations, clearly differ. As a local, I can visit all three pubs in Horning within a ten minute car journey, I choose not to, and I certainly don't visit them by boat.
