The difference now is more folk have their own boats whereas in times gone past it was mostly hire boats.

Stern mooring or double mooring isn't such a major problem in the summer months as hopefully folk don't have their heating systems belting away at all hours, filling the adjacent boat with noxious fumes.

There again if you do allow double mooring people are going to be trudging across your boat (remember some women wear high heels even on a boat,   uggh!! my paintwork) whereas when you stern moor they at least can get on and off at the back of the boat.

That lot coupled with the fact that some people have dogs on board.     It is instinct for Fido to want to protect the boat and so could be interesting.

We would double moor only if we knew the people mooring along side and that they did not have dogs.  I personally am terrified of dogs although I love them.

Edited to say that it goes without saying that in an emergency everyone must allow double mooring.

Women dont nag they just
things out...

" we made many a friend because of being double moored "

Very true.
But that was before "personal space" and the term "pride and joy" were number one and two on many boaters agendas.  Broads boating is a very much more insular and less sociable activity since then.

All the reasons given against double mooring on the Broads also apply to coastal based marinas and there is never an issue or problem with it there.

We have moored in small congested Greek harbours where the only way to get boats in was stern on to the quay and then latecomers went stern on between the bows of two boats and even later comers went stern between the bows of two boats, three boats out from the quay. Provided people were sensible about fendering and considerate about leaving at a reasonable hour it all worked very well. I think people who put up the barricades against double mooring miss a lot and are the poorer for it.
