Private boat owners to be charged on public moorings.


Recommended Posts

because of the historic multiplier charged to hireboats for the upkeep of public moorings it is now felt that with the more frequent use of private boats that there should be a charge for over night mooring on public staithes. Where a warden is not present on the less busy Staithes payment can be made by credit card over the phone or by using honesty boxes by the river banks.

A spokesman said ''This is good news for everyone as there are far too many private boats clogging up the system and mooring up for far too long''

Nice try Clive, but I'll bite and start a war by agreeing with the statement. "private boats clogging up the system and mooring up for far too long"

Yes David,

That was a spokesman what said that,

I also heard from an insider that the private boats also moor up outside pubs and drink their own beer. I found it difficult to beleive.
