This is what is on the Broadsedge web site, and it's utter bullsh*t (IMO):

"Following the announcement by the prime minister on Saturday 31st October, from Thursday 5th November until (at least) Wednesday 2nd December new national restrictions for England will be in place.

The government has told us to stay at home and make essential journeys only. Now is not the time to visit the broads.

So as of the 5th of November 2020 Broadsedge marina will be closed for all moorings and visitors.

The gates will be locked and no access will be permitted on to the marina.

All the boats will be checked on regular basis, anything you need to ask please give David a call on 07584341446

Stay Safe!"

Sorry, but I do not agree with the remarks regarding Dave at Broadsedge.  I have moored there  for the past 3 years and always found him and his staff to be friendly, amiable and cooperative.  I have no trouble with him locking the gates and closing the marina down  for the duration of the lockdown.
Better safe than sorry!!!  Surely local boat owners can go a month without visiting their boats.  As I live 3 1/2 hours away it is not practical to visit my boat during the winter, so she is always closed down for 5 months.  Yes it is hard, but I live with it!!!
I have also just seen on Facebook that Waterside Marine have also closed  and locked the yard and told all private boat owners NOT to visit or attempt to go on the mooring sight.  So what is the difference between the two?    It seems as if Broadsedge and Waterside Marine are Responsible Marina owners who care about their berth holders  safety and welfare.  But that is all just my honest  opinion.  Smile

Warrior ,    You have been there 3 years and there are a lot of us who have moored there in the past and I am talking 15 or more years ago when it first opened and David had a boss who was around a lot of the time.  He sadly had ill health.    I know David has not had good health but that doesn't alter the fact that he likes things run his way as if he owns the place.   Bless him.

I think many are missing the point here, and ignoring the issues raised by simply dismissing everything with  a sweeping "get on with it " response.

It does not follow that any member who raises a query about the rules or disagrees with the actions of some businesses is in any way reckless or selfish about Covid or the rules.

Thus far the discussion was only about Broadsedge because that was all anyone had info about. We know now , thank you, that Waterside have done the same. Doesn't mean however, that it is right.

With reference to Dave, I would ask that we try to avoid personal comments or attacks , and direct our concerns at a business. I personally do not agree with the stance taken by Broadsedge , or Waterside if that's the same , and I feel it's fair enough for me to comment as a fellow river user and boat owner even though I do not moor there. However, as I understand it, Dave is the manager, not the owner of Broadsedge, so he may simply be carrying out instructions rather than making the decisions himself.

Thanks all, Karen

I wouldn't expect someone who lives 3 1/2 hrs away from their boat, and who doesn't use it at this time of year anyway, to be concerned about locked marinas. My neighbour can walk to his boat and uses it all year, but he is locked out. That's a different kettle of fish entirely.

I live that far away Pally, and I am concerned. Not for myself but the principle. And the further example this highlights of the BA interpretations, and the harsh attitudes of businesses in an area where I spend hard earned money.

What is particularly ludicrous about the  Waterside decision is that the car park is shared with Latham's which is going to remain open because of their food and garden trade .

Whereas in reality Latham's is currently stocked up for Christmas and will be a honey pot for people buying tinsel,lights and cheapish novelty presents .

A single person on a boat keeping six feet away from anyone or a heaving mass all jostling for the goodies of their choice .

I know which one I think creates the greatest covid risk.

Karen&Mike, I do know, and appreciate, that there are people such as you who do not live locally but nevertheless have a passion for the Broads and its care. But it is understandable that someone unaffected by what is going on here might not be concerned. That's simply human nature, unfortunately.

warrior and Dykedweller seem to have missed the main point.
The moorings were locked down immediately thus giving owners no chance to winterize their boats.
November sometimes has consecutive nights of below freezing weather, so if pipes burst causing water damage or worse still sinkings, would the marina be liable?
