IIRC, code flag L (alternate yellow and black quarters) is the signal that a vessel is quarantined. The only problem with flying one of these is that anyone who actually knows what it means is also likely to be able to come alongside and make themselves fast in a safe and controlled manner, whilst most people won't have a clue (and may mistake you for a Wolves fan, which may or may not be a problem).

In all seriousness, if anyone needs banners made for anything I've found www.printabanner.co.uk to be excellent.

They even couriered the Thames Pageant banner to get it to me on time - very good prices too from just £9.00.

Another Idea

If you own a dinghy - tolls paid - then problem solved, double moor your own dinghy along side. The dinghy is valid river boat as toll paid - perfect answer  Evil Grin

Perfect answer for some very selfish answer for others. This is one post with many differing opinions, unless the BA enforces its rulings (how I don't know) the debate will continue. Personally I am of the opinion if you are not prepared to allow someone to come alongside at designated moorings then don't moor there yourself.
Problem solved
Perfect

The dinghy idea is pure genius, well done, espcially if when asked you say it's not yours!

I have a question though, and as it's me it's almost troll like Smile  .

If as sometimes happens, some people have moored their boats badly and are taking up more space than needed (not sharing Mooring posts), does or can that collective wasted space count as "moorings full"
To clarify...... If eight boats are taking up the space of ten, the mooring is not full. Therefore I would be within my rights to say, No to someone asking to moor alongside. Well, can I? can I? please please please ..... can I ?

Peter, I think you are being argumentative just for the point of it.. With 9 out of 10 Broads registered vessels in private hands and with the costs of insurance/repairs and everything spiralling, it is no surprise that many people do not want to take the risk of either damage to their vessel, or be held responsible for personal injury occuring from an accident that could occur onboard their vessel.

So are you saying that BA moorings - paid for and maintained by the toll payer should be just for hire company and those willing to accept inevitable damage useage?

You may even stump up the 'suitable boat for the broads' nugget - may I remind you that most bathtubs are wholly unsuitable for the broads and most contain the worlds most polluting diesel engine - the BMC - which has a higher CO2/KG output than an old routemaster bus. The fact that they have a low airdraft is just about the only benefit. Look at classic Broads boats and wherries - these were designed for use on the Broads as this is what the navigation was built for...

Also look at modern designs such as the Broom 35, Haines 32 etc - all designed with river use in mind, both costing well over £100,000.. would you really expect to say to anyone buying one of those "Sorry but unless you accept being hit by another boat, which could even hole or sink you, you had better not use it on the waterway for which it was designed?"

Teadaemon....... Sorry to correct you, but Q (plain yellow flag) is your quarantine signal.
L means stop your vessel I have something important to communicate with you. eg (Leeds 6  Wolves 0). LOL
