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!

I'll raise a glass to Warrior's last post of bring back common sense. Cheers

We were due to go on holiday on the 14th November.   I had previously started to get a few bits together but as soon as I got wind of this lockdown being muted I put them all away again as had a feeling it would be another holiday cancelled.   I can fully understand if you have to work on the days prior to the lockdown on the Wednesday night and it was shame that you could not get to your boat over the previous weekend.  

I am interested to see the results of this testing at Liverpool and wonder what the outcome will be.   I am hoping that it will not be as bad as thought.   In the meantime I am keeping my distance and only going out when necessary.

All of you - look after yourselves.

Amended as what I had written just did not make sense.

LsBelles, the Lockdown was announced Saturday Evening so what was wrong with going to your boat on the Sunday, unless of course you had to work. In which case I apologise.  I am a retiree but certainly not a rich one. Smile

Before this thread descends into personal abuse, let me make two points.

1. Warrior, barrack room lawyer: "a person who likes to give authoritative-sounding opinions on subjects in which they are not qualified, especially legal matters."

My qualifications to give an opinion on legal matters extend over 3 decades. I would never presume to give legal advice to forum members, but I have substantial experience in interpreting, understanding and implementing legislation, both civil and criminal.

2. L'sBelles, some might describe me as a "comfortably off retiree", but I like to think I take the plight of others seriously.

I dont think the words well off applies once you have a boat of your own,  you just keep shelling out constantly to keep your boat in tip top condition and that is just the basics.

What with Mooring fees, tolls, insurance, and that is before your start with keeping the ruddy thing from freezing its a.se off in the winter.   Fuel isnt cheap now either.   Sleepless nights worrying how much the latest fault is going to cost you.  

Yes boating is fun and it is good to own your own boat, been there bought several T-shirts.   We now hire, when and if Mr Covid every shoves off this mortal coil.

Cheers Pally. I get your drift  Wink   ( the post in reply to us directly).

Warrior, just for clarification - I believe that the decision made by Broadsedge was not declared,  or perhaps not even taken,  before  Monday morning. Also, as can be seen from other berth holders comments here,  some were unaware until later. The announcement of the lockdown was made on Saturday evening, yes, but with limited specifics. Luckily for us, we were due in a higher teir from Monday so had already planned the trip. However, getting antifreeze quickly proved a little bit of a problem but we did manage to place an on line order and get it Friday.

Think also about those who would need to fill up with diesel as part of their winterisation , or get a pump out. On a Sunday, on the Broads. Another friend of ours ( Norfolk resident ) headed to a fuel facility usually open , but they had already closed down for the lockdown, days in advance. He therefore had a wasted journey down river in that direction , first thing in the morning, so had to head back past his mooring location and make another similar journey in the opposite direction. Al of that takes time of course and these are the type of challenges that Covid presents , in just trying to get things done. Couple that with work commitments and I think we can see why the complete closure of a marina would in itself present a few challenges.  It's not much good saying staff are checking the boats on regular walks round the moorings is it ? Just means you will know promptly when your boat has sunk    Frown  

Difficult times, and that's without running around trying to avoid every person without a mask, or  maskless kids running around the supermarket  whilst Mummy and Daddy browse ( why take the whole family ?!) and those who clearly have no idea what 1 or 2m actually looks like ( staff included).

Karen looking at the recent Tesco advert I got the distinct impression that only 1 person from the family can go shopping now and definitely not Ma Pa and all of the ankle biters as well.    That is not good.

Hehe MM.

Or, as a creative business owner in Norfolk once said to us...

...whenever we are pricing up a marine related job that we just  add BOAT - bung on another thousand (quid!)

I prefer to stick to the advice in the Persil ad, "Keep well away from children."
