Hi Adrian

I also wonder how it works, noone I speak to seems to understand the science .

I do think it restricts some water though as the marina at our end never seems as high as the river itself with the barrier in place

The other thing I don't understand is where are all the fish resting  . I have placed fish  finders and cameras under our boat when the barrier is in place and always seen diddly squat , but they may of course be in another basin

Because fresh water is less salty and less dense than water from the ocean, it  floats on top of the heavier seawater.

my appearance is down to me, my attitude is down to you.

I also moor in HW basin, and have fished while the barrier is up without getting a bite - i assume the fish must have gone upriver under the bridge… Playful Wink

With kind regards

Hi Jim

The barrier is only there because the EA say that many thousands ( my memory says at least 100k  but I cannot be sure of that )of fish shelter in the marina to keep away from the salt in the river. Without the barrier those that escaoe from the river into   the marina would eventually be overwhelmed by the salt.

I am intrigued  as I have never seen any evidence of many thousands of fish resting in the marina.

There was an EA-liveried van in the HW/Latham car this morning.

A quick update the barrier was closed again last week and still hasn't re opened.
.
They are hoping for tomorrow    


This is not good news for the user's of the marina but even worse for the inhabitants of the thurne which have been trying to survive  salt water for over a week

I’ve been hoping to get out of the marina all week, but looks like it’ll be tomorrow at the earliest before the barrier goes down. Sod’s law is I’m then too busy on other stuff to be boating next week. Fingers crossed for the week after…

I wish I could be convinced the barrier is worthwhile, I don’t really understand how it works.

With kind regards

Herbert Woods usually start hiring out some of their own boats in February, just wondering how that would work?

At the tail part of last season the boats waiting to come in and those ready to go out had the barrier lowered so they could move in and out…

With kind regards

I quite agree with Jim (Bluebell),I can’t understand how it works when the water creeps around the end of the barrier and is always the same level as the river .
We’ve moored at Herbert Woods for 15  plus years so are used to the situation I expect the office must point out the situation to new Moorers.
