Somerleyton today
Very wide river. why not move to the end of of the mooring if not possible at least raft up.

Most people spend more time and energy going around problems than in trying to solve them.

Looking at your photo that is making me envious that I am not there now I am looking at it from a different perspective to your first vision.
If I was coming up River now and was going to moor there then that spot on the end would have been mine, nicely tucked away.
At the front of the boat on the right is a safety ladder to which they cannot moor across so the same gap would be available at that end.
I agree rafting would be sensible.
Looking more into your photo I think that the other two boats are causing more of an issue with the gaps that they have left between them for other boats to moor, if I was the gin palace I would have moored back to the ladder knowing that at least one end of my boat is protected from potential boats mooring, at that mooring you get very strong tides and winds so mooring can some times be a bit hazardous.
Please do not take my post as a negative response to your post, it’s just that I am sitting quietly in my armchair with a cup of tea and when I saw your photo I was there, as I have been many times.

I agree the work boats should be rafted and either up one end or the other.   Not knowing what time of day this was taken, other boats could have moved off.

I'm not sure that rafting up the two spoil wherries would have been wise, the tide fairly hosses though Somerleyton. It would be a lot of weight to hold, even with everything doubled up.

There is no weight as Archimedes' principle states that, when a body is partially or completely immersed in a fluid, it experiences an apparent loss in weight that is equal to the weight of the fluid displaced by the immersed part of the body(s).
So just the force of the current on the lines which would be the same for anything that floats with a similar profile facing the current.

Passionate debate coming on! The outer boat will be further out into the river where the flow is greater.

So in that case if the barge was in the water full of slurry it would be the same weight as if it was empty? Mmm interesting.

No, it would sit lower in the water, displacing the equivalently greater water volume, and presenting a greater hull area to the water flow.

Irrespective of weight, if you double the width of a vessel, surely that must (as near as damn it) double the resistance to the flow of water. Isn't that why our boats pass through water more smoothly when going pointy end first?

Edited to add: I've towed a number of broken down cruisers alongside over the years and I know how much more effort is required to make progress.
