Looking on the webcam at least ten boats moored tonight outside the wherry inn, at oulton broad at £10 a time the place must be making a fortune, so how come they charge so much when other places are free and happy to just get the custom, or places that charge but take it off the food bill.
Is this daylight robbery or what.

Wherry give £5 back off food, £5 overnight for a safe mooring and free water, can't be bad.

When a place gives free mooring just to be glad of custom then why can't everywhere, that way maybe some of the places wouldn't shut down on the scale they seem to do, I would certainly be put off by excessive mooring fees, and a family on a tight budget would find it very hard adding mooring fees on top of the cost of a hire boat, especially in today's  unemployment situation.

"...so how come they charge so much when other places are free and happy to just get the custom, or places that charge but take it off the food bill."

So you moor at the Wherry on a Thursday, get a grandstand view of the powerboat racing, eat your take-away (or home-cooked meal), fill up your water tank and depart Friday mooring, without spending anything in the premises that has provided you with the mooring and water facilities and you want that FOR FREE?

Free moorings, so who pays for the upkeep of the quay headings and the metered water, guess that will be the patrons and guests.

Pubs offer free car-parking but charge for moorings. Mind you, I expect moorings to the standard of the Wherry ones are expensive to maintain. By the way, free moorings at the nearby Commodore.

I have enjoyed visiting the Wherry Hotel for many years and have always used the Hotel's moorings.  I would rather pay a little extra and be able to keep an eye on the boat.  And as others have said you can claim back 1/2 the mooring fee when purchasing food. In addition you can top up with water.

My only gripe is that when a small fortune was spent on the Hotel refurb it would appear that nothing was spent on the moorings. The old tyres that were along the quay offering some protection have been removed but not replaced by anything.

I found that in windy weather the boat bangs against the key. Placing an additional fender on the stern helped slightly but even so the deep ridges on the quay allows the fenders to sit in the gap. In addition some of the mooring posts appear to just be old scaffold poles and some are missing making some of the area unusable.  

The last time I moored there was in May this year so I am hoping that there may have been some improvements.


Kind Regards
Alan...

Last summer I crewed a Bavaria 39 down to Dartmouth. Being an aged crew we stopped off at night along the south coast in Marina visitors berths to run ashore to eat. cost between £38 and £74 per night. We did use their showers though.
As I have said before stop moaning about cost on the Broads. Boat any where else and it will cost you double, three times on the Thames.

Couldn't agree more, Capt'n. An overnight car park stay in Norwich can cost up to £20!
