" 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.
