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?

Sorry I disagree with you the lockdown was announced on the Saturday, which gave everyone who moors at Broadsedge almost a week to get up to their boat and winter it as I did.  There  was after all Sunday, Monday, Tuesday and Wednesday.  Broadsedge was not locked down immediately but midnight on Wednesday.   Yes I do live 3 1/2 hours away and I do Winter my boat in Novemeber, and I do travel up to the Marina during the Winter a couple of times, but I stand by my earlier remarks that , and if we all abide by the rules this nasty pandemic will be over that much quicker.  the so called advice from barrack room lawyers does not help.  bring back common sense and we will be ll the better ror it.  Smile

"There  was after all Sunday, Monday, Tuesday and Wednesday."

What about those of us who have to work for a living and fund our boats?

They effectively had less than 24 hours notice that tomorrow they had to visit their boat to secure it for the next month at least because Monday, Tuesday and Wednesday they would be working!

Seems to me that there are many comfortably off retirees on this forum that keep telling us to think of others. Pots, kettles and a dark colour springs to mind!
