My marina's pump out station is on the main canal, about 700 mtrs from the marina entrance on the offside.
Given that I have only a holding tank unit in the boat, soon, I will need to leave my berth and go to the pump out station.
I understand that the Coronavirus is not an airborne virus, onpassing is by contact, clothes, hair, body fluids etc etc..
I'm single crew, so no trouble with self isolating, but....After I've used the PS and cleaned down the hose and handles, I have a further 1.5 mile trip to the nearest winding hole. A total of approx 4.5 miles round trip from the Marina berth.
I presume this is acceptable and in compliance with Boris's directives..
Q. If after using the PO, I missed the first winding hole and turn at the next available, this gives a round trip of approx 10-11 miles...If this is acceptable.and why should it not be.? . Then why not take a weekend cruise, ..and still be in compliance.. As indeed Lady G is suggesting. Different canals, different reasons, but same principle.
