How many times have we heard that the B.A  are going to take steps to ensure that nobody overstay's on a mooring.  The only steps they seem to take are very large ones in the opposite direction.  I will believe the evidence of my own eyes and I am not holding my breath.  Incidently the aged nutty woman who owns two of the boats on the Staithe, also owns a boat at Broadsedge!!!  so I am led to believe!!

As an aside - have those paddleboarders in steves pic been asked to pay a toll towards the navigation that they so freely use?! That very navigation that us private boat owners exclusively paid tolls for promptly this April so that the BA had funds to keep said navigation open?

The same navigation that countless holidaymakers regularly stick blow up inflatable pool type dinghies or donut rings on, again with most if not all ever paying or even being challenged for a visitors toll?

I'll always happily pay my way, but I ain't happy about those who get a free, or delayed credit ride  Mad

Edit to add I do know that there is an annual CRT type of national thing which extends to the Broads. As in for a proper canoe/regular canoeist, not a silly holiday fun purchase from a beach shop.

That looks like a great job, thanks BA. At least the grass which hid dog's mess and got spread all over the boat by the Grass Monster has gone.

Now lets hope BA polices the 24 hour mooring policy. Whilst I have no problems with people living on boats, paying their licence fees and basic insurance  using the moorings for the prescribed times and visiting for shopping etc. they must realise that there are other people in this World who do pay their way and indirectly subsidise unproductive people through their taxes and Council Tax. After all, non productive people still use our Council and health services but do not pay for them.

Karen:

I do agree with you. I am not sure if a paddle board is classed as a canoe but proper canoe enthusiast can get a blanket cover licence if they for a very reasonable price covers them for all waterways if they join the British Canoe Union.

Perhaps paddle boarders should look up what a dose of Weils Disease (Leptospirosis) can do to you. Not nice and not easily got rid of.

They wont just disappear overnight anyway. To enforce a byelaw takes time to gather the evidence, submit a prosecution file, go to court etc etc.
They will probably stretch it as far as they can now that they have nowhere else to go. boat-sail

Karen - I asked a Ranger about the payment of tolls for these.- His comment to me was " We have been told not to ask these as we are too busy checking on private boats "

I am currently getting information about boats non- payment.   Will make interesting reading once I get more information.
