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."

Well Monica they were certainly doing that at the  Skipton branch of the supermarket chain you mention, back in the first lockdown, so if that's the case again now, excellent.

We've just had our shopping delivery from another big chain and that will do us for a good couple of weeks, plus fresh meat and veg from our local butcher and greengrocer.

Will things ever be normal again? Hope so.

Take care, Karen

Paladine, what makes you think I was meaning you when I referred to "Barack Room Lawyers"? I was making  a general observation  and not pointing a finger at anyone in particular.  I just think some people try to "muddy the waters" if you will pardon the pun.   I did not realise that you were in the legal profession in any way and thought after a post  that you made  a few years ago regarding the price of red diesel I thought  you were in the oil industry as you seemed so knowledgeable about it. Smile

warrior, in reaching the ripe old age that I have, I have acquired many skills and even some expertise. I did work for a large oil company for many years, in a variety of roles, including testing and production. There are many strings to my bow  Wink

Paladine, I am sure you are astute enough to realise this was not directed at you despite falling into the generalised bracket! Smile
Given your analysis of recent legislation I had assumed you were still practising in some legal capacity.
