Did I miss a post Steve? I thought I had kept up with this one. What do they think caused it then? Blush

Morning everyone.

The story going round the yard, is that the previous people who were picked up by the police have since been released, but they have picked up someone else, this person has been bailed.  The interesting point is that this person worked in the cafe in Richardsons yard.  
Like I say this is the info going around the yard.

Just back from a week in Wroxham. Saw the boats this week and a very sad sight. We were told that one of the boats had just been sold and was ready to be prepared but this is one that will be crushed now. Thanks Roya for the events on Sunday morning. We wondered what it was all about when we saw the police on the other bank. If security keeps having to be stepped up I wonder what will be the efect on people's enjoyment of the broads.

It throws two different views on the issue as we all know .
With a police or security presence, you feel you have a peace of mind, and on the other hand, as you rightly say, you automatically think " is it really that bad around here " first impressions............

Whatever the age of the people (or person) responsible I think it's safe to call them yobs. I'm sure there are any number of socio-pshycological issues to explain the hardships which led the perpertrators to such actions.

I'm afraid none of that cr*p washes with me. The only answer is to remove the liberty of these people. Tag them, curfew them, remove passports and driving licences (if they have them), release them during the daytime to attend work (or community service if they don't have work) so that they can pay for their own incarceration.

I don't advocate the creation of a police state but this mess which we live in now serves only to protect the guilty. The innocent are not even allowed to fight for themselves!

Yes there are underlying issues which must be dealt with but at the end of the day 99.9% of these low life are where they are because of their own personal choices - we all had those same choices to make but we don't go around burning boats and smashing car windows.

That's my rant over - next!

Regards

Paul

Andy Be assured that people are taking notice of this story .I have received e mails from members of the bounty owners group who are as concerned, as all of us are regarding this event and read the forum and discuss these issue's.We had a senseless break in 4 years ago on the moorings but like to think it was an isolated incident and would not stop us boating.

If the prime suspect is an ex-employee of the cafe could the fire be because of a grudge against the management, and not boat owners in general? Comment, Paul?

This is one hell of a site to make secure, thousands of feet of fencing would be needed, plus cameras backed up by fit, active security. I can't see one man and his dog cutting it, frankly.

Besides, I thought geese were supposed to be better security than dogs, and there's plenty of them already, to no avail it seems!

While peripatetic fishermen, sundry dogwalkers et al. are allowed full run of the site at night, security will be impossible. Go take a look at Brighton Marina to see how high tech security should be done.

Since we pay £1600 a year for a hole in the water here I think we should expect a safe hole in the water.

Hi All .
Firstly welcome,
plank and commodre,

What bothers me is that at the moment the Broads are busy with hire Craft and us daft boat owners,but there is a Dirth of Rangers about,
Come on BA how many were about this weekend.
One Or Two launches over the whole Broads.
We pay our Tolls in the hope that we will be safe and secure in the knowledge that our Rangers are there to help us.
Mind you i did notice the work going on at the BA moorings,with a ranger doing sterling work
,but he would have been better cruising about on the Launch.
The amount of speeding and after dark cruising this last few days needs seeing into,
ACTION PLEASE.
Sorry for the drift but,the less protection we have makes the situation worse.

Well said Roya. As I said on another thread when the BA had people at the ferry inn in August telling boats to slow down by mid aftrenoon they did not need to tell so many. Just them being there worked.
