  1. You seem to be mistaking some of what I am asking/saying. 1. Is the technology really more cost effective than a simple business agreement with the marinas? 2. I would agree we are being tracked. I didn't say I objected to it or didn't know it happened. I did try to draw your attention to the furore created by suggesting this should be compulsory a year or two ago in a discussion on this forum. IIRC I even suggested RFIDs as an answer to checking if boats were moving enough. Again you seem to be missing what I have said. I didn't say you have to have a licence if you own a TV I said you would be treated as if you would watch the TV because you own one. I do wish folk would read and take in what is written before replying. Having been in the situation of owning a TV but not watching I know how you are treated.
  2. TVlicensing.co.,uk say: You'll need to buy a TV Licence for your static caravan, mobile home or moveable chalet if: anyone, at the same time, is watching or recording live TV on any channel or watching or downloading BBC programmes on iPlayer at your main licensed address the caravan or mobile home is your main residence So I agree they probably class touring caravans as mobile chalets/mobile homes. It would also seem odd knowing how keen they are on collecting money if they didn't consider boats as a "mobile" home i.e. a place to live as opposed to the "mobile home" tag often given to motor caravans/camper van type vehicles.
  3. That will be as cost effective as the current system? Last time such technology was discussed most of the forum were up in arms at the potential for somebody being able to track where they were/had been. I think you will find that possession of the equipment assumes you will use it and so they insist you need a licence. It may not be spelled out exactly like that in law but the assumption by the "powers that be" is that everyone who has a TV watches it.

  5. I think you will find contracts and so T & Cs are controlled by statute therefor the situation is perfectly legal. If you object to having a licence choose one of the marinas where you don't need one. I would liken the situation to the TV licence. If you have the required equipment you need a licence in case you use it at sometime. In most marinas you need a licence in case you decide to pop out with the boat. Can you suggest any other cost effective way of ensuring everyone who leaves the marina even for an hour has a licence?
  6. My immediate feeling is if you think things are so bad why are you considering buying and have put down a deposit.
  7. As they manage access to the canal the T & C is perfectly reasonable by your own admission.

  12. Many years ago we hired a boat on the L & L and our cruise was restricted by lack of water, a worker blamed the reservoirs sayine "they leaked like a sieve".
  13. So should I have a notice to say go away I want to moor on my own?

  15. Why is it that you choose a nice quiet place out in the sticks and suddenly others decide to moor close to you? It always seems to happen.

  23. The trouble with inexperience is you can't change it without experience. If you don't allow inexperienced crews to work locks they never gain experience.
