The etiquette is this , do into other's as u would expect them to do to u , fine put a notice in saying no double mooring , but one day u might find u need a mooring and all u can see is no mooring signs especially on the northern rivers in summer .
What is wrong with a little common sense n give and take ? .
Of cause u can refuse but remember that others can too n trust me if a boat wished to moor along side me then that's fine , but only as Long as it doesn't have a sign in the window prohibiting others from doing that , n that's the only time I would refuse .

So RedCow if you find a quiet mooring you are highly unlikely to be asked to double moor.

It is more likely in popular mooring spots or an emergency.

Once outside the Ferry Inn at Stokesley near sunset we invited a DM by a couple who were doing the same as us and catching the tide to go south early the next day.  They were gone before us and we never felt a thing.

The next was a bit more challenging being a stag do who lost steering on a big boat when we were moored at Womack Island.  It is just what you do

The pace of life down there
suits us

I have no problem with double mooring, in fact I have offered it to passing boats when they have been looking for a mooring.

Also think of double mooring as the same as stern on mooring, with boats on both sides of you, generally no problem

First rate post from Rickh that should be applauded.
A very old fashioned attitude it seems nowadays but is the way things were done historically in Broadland. The area is very much the poorer for that change. The camaraderie, all mucking in together, live and let live aspects of Broads boating were once one of it's best aspects. Sadly almost all gone now.

In the 70s it was quite normal to double moor and there seemed to be little fuss back then...we made many a friend because of being double moored
