A lovely couple arrived yesterday on their way to Oxford all the way from Nantwich. They asked about moorings. It really is so sad they just didn’t understand, there are no ******* moorings. She thought she could just flash her eyelashes and moorings would fall at her feet. Lady you are cute but not that cute.
The only mooring available is at the marina in Yarnton and they haven’t built that yet, probably never will. But they didn’t want to live in a marina anyway. There are fifty or more down here looking for moorings that don’t exist. The more that arrive the harder it is for genuine CCers to find somewhere to moor. We have floating student accommodation with no mooring. The only mooring that was available (mine) was taken months ago and given the opportunity I could have sold it twenty times with ease.
He does have a job she doesn't so at least they are not completely without finance. However they are going to have to be continuous moorers.
British Waterways need to get a grip of this place or it will end up like the Lee & Stort, OUT OF CONTROL!
