Just a thought, if anyone wants to research the niceties of double mooring via th Internet, the more widely used term is 'Rafting', which is an  issue at almost every public mooring location (Internationally !)

If you do a Google search containing the two words 'rafting' and 'mooring', (like this http://www.google.co.uk/search?hl=en&q=rafting+mooring&meta= ), you'll find many interesting pages.

People hang signs saying 'no rafting', and 'leaving early morning' etc.  Smile

Hi
Double mooring is not as bad as it was as less boats.
But what gets me mad one boat taking Up space when you can fit a boat next to it if only they had tied up at the end of a mooring.
Is it ok to move boat along if nobody on boat?

The weekend before last we saw a group of yachts moor in a raft of four abreast at Wayford Bridge. It played havoc with the visibility for those approaching the bridge.

Hi, As far as i am aware you can move boats to get your own boat  moored ,but you must ask if someone there, and make sure you leave the boat safely tied up.Hope this is correct but think it is.

Hi
I suggest you take note of the Broads Authority Byelaws that cover this.

73 Interference with Vessels

No person other than the Navigation Officer or an Officer of
the Authority acting in the execution of his duty shall without
reasonable excuse let go or attempt to let go or part the
mooring line or lines of any vessel except with the permission
of the master of the vessel.

ah, yes but does that bylaw cover inland watercraft?
Most byelaws are for 'shipping'.

Think you will find Inland Waterways must play to there own byelaws (I.e, The Broads Authority)

You will notice when crossing Breydan there is a big sign that says 'Internatinal Collision rules apply' because this is the port of Gt Yarmouth, not the Broads Authority...

there...the tin of worms is now officialy open!!!!!!!!

Hi
As we are talking about mooring on the Norfolk Broads and not in the area covered by International Rules, Rule 73 is a Broads Authority Byelaw, but you knew that any way didn't you  Question Confused

Not read a copy of the BA bye laws for many years.
They are printed on a sign next to the harbour masters office in Beccles Quay......

I have had 'joe public' move my boat without asking and have tongue in cheek asked if they are insured to handle my boat and take responsiblity for the ropes they have just retied in such a way....that normally gets the message home.....

Fendoff....

An accurate quote, I have no doubt, but surely the kick is in the 'without reasonable excuse' part....

If three boats are taking up the space of five then it has always (so far as I'm aware) been accepted that a new arrival is entitled to move unattended boats up to make efficient use of the mooring.....

Although I know this started about double mooring, but if the bloke outside me is away and it's time for me to go, that CERTAINLY counts as 'reasonable excuse' to me.....

Of course one must always ask, if the skipper is in attendance, and certainly ensure all is secure at the end....but the movement must be allowable.....I'd like to hear a Ranger's view?

it's a bit blowy, best put a reef in the burgee...

Coriolis, I think you have it exactly right. We've both shifted and been shifted by other boats and it has never been a problem. The crucial thing is to ask if someone is aboard a boat you want to move - just as you would ask permission to come aboard to, for example, walk your boat into a difficult stern-on mooring. Its really all about good manners!

Totally agree very much like the rules (unspoken) of narrowboats that you avert you eyes when walking past.

At the end of the day its common sense treat others as you would wish to be treated and there will be no problems Smile

Regards Bern.
I told you the boat had no brakes !!!!!!!!!
