No electric heating just washing things etc and the leccy at my moorings is by pound meter and is set at top rate.
We did leave the immersion on 24/7 though.

We are in BWML marina. Also doing our washing on board so your elected units must be high.

I put thirty pounds a week in my leccy meter at my mooring. Id go live in a house cos they are cheap but dont want to die of boredom.


Wow £30. We are in a marina temp. owing to health issue and put in a £5 card per week.
Solid fuel stove so just using immersion heater and battery charger/ inverter.
Guess you must be using elec for heating to use £30.

In Topic: WARNING - CRT licence computer telling lies

We had a similar experience. I renewed online, the money left our bank on 28/11/14 for our licence expiring on 31/12/14.
The licence hadn't arrived by 28/12/14, so I gave them a ring. The woman I spoke to apologised and said the licence would be issued soon. Still not arrived by 10/01/15, so I email customer services. The reply said that yes they had our money, but it hadn't been allocated to our account. The licence would be issued shortly. On 15/01/15 we received a demand for the full amount without the early payment discount. I rang again and gave them the whole story. More apologies, the licence arrived on 18th Jan!!


If you re new on line you get a e mail and reference number stating your boat is licenced. Just forward this to them and let them sort it out.


Following their unsuccessful attempt to have me abolished they sent me two Licences to replace the one they had revoked . . . . you're very welcome to have one them.

Perhaps you should have tried to get a refund on one.
