The new mooring rules will come into effect in Thrupp in two weeks. I have to wonder what CRT think this will achieve. At the end of the day if you want a nice spot you need to arrive early. There is no point arriving a 7 pm and expecting a spot out side the pub it ‘ain’t gonna' happen’. People haver been arriving all day to be assured of getting a spot. However they change the rules late comers will not get a look in. They will still have to park out in the sticks.
If the CRT want to make better use of moorings then they should fine people for putting a 40 foot boat in the middle of a 100 foot space thereby preventing a 60 foot boat mooring up.
I just cant understand why people will not share rings on the basis of privacy! Honeypot sites and the people who moor there cannot afford privacy. There isn’t enough space! If you want privacy STAY AT HOME. And please don’t make the assumption that the bloke behind you wants his privacy, if he is a proper boater he will want you to share rings to make room for others. Leaving 20 foot gaps between boats at prime places is not only damned inconsiderate it is proof positive that you are a tosser. Now get a grip!!!
