A Word Of Warning Re Primitive Moorings.


Recommended Posts

One of Richo's Ginger Tops is fast aground on Oulton Broad this morning. She went on about three hours before low water so will presumably come off about three hours after meaning that she might loose the tide at Yarmouth, if nothing else she'll be late back if she's going to Stalham today. A number of us recommend out of the way moorings but if you come South then you will have a tide to contend with, in this case over three feet. Moored up, in a good fishing spot, but did the hirers have a dydle with the boathook? If you can touch the bottom and the tide is high then mooring there is not a good idea. In this case the hirers were anglers so surely knew the depth but perhaps had little awareness of the tide or it's hazards. Or maybe it was just a case of being a 'ginger'!.
