  1. No.. Merely interested in the facts!! Think we often can judge people/situations from first appearances.. I would not automatically assume anything about another boater from how shiny or not their boat is.. Very sad if you fall into that trap!
  2. I do think it would help if the OP described the situation a bit more.. Why would a boater approach another in the way described without possible provocation.. Getting the impression the post was a bit of a rant.. Maybe to elicit the responses so far.. Now seems that anyone who responds in this thread is being labelled a snob???
  3. Somewhat confused as to why the issue of staying somewhere for 6 months is being worried about.. If you anticipate in advance the need to stay put somewhere for this length of time perhaps the decision should be taken to get a permanent mooring. Or have I missed the point somewhere?
  4. We have recently left campbell wharf marina but having spent a year there can recommend it. Good facilities and run by lovely managers. Nice community. Don't know too much about Peartree marina although have heard that getting on some of the berths can be tight.. (especially in a wide beam) so prob best to check that out before committing. Campbell wharf is ideally situated for the town and public transport etc..
  5. We have a 57ft trad stern Hixon boat (2003) we paid similar price for ours 9 years ago (from Whilton) . Survey done at time showed no problems up.. Surveyor and boatyards that have blacked/ worked on ours have commented that steelwork was of good quality and has nice lines..
  6. Speechless... Yes. Will be donating ours back too. Shortsighted otherwise.. It surely is beneficial to all if it helps CRT to maintain system for when boating resumes.
  7. Crt website is quite clear on what boat movements are currently permitted. Everyone's plans are having to change. We planned to spend summer out cruising but not now possible. People everywhere making sacrifices and if that means having to stay in your marina that is surely what is needed.. Just take care to keep 2 m distance in my view.. Quite easy to keep safe in boat I would imagine.
  8. Appreciate some boats were already out and that yesterday's hirers were borderline with government advice issued I believe albeit as a suggestion on Sunday. It is what it is but as we all need to be in this together I could not understand why this particular hire boat was still heading away from base despite being requested to return.. Ignoring government advice has been part of the issue. At present assume liveaboard boats on move to position themselves nearer facilities but may be wrong. Don't think people will moan about boatyards closing - they need to protect themselves and others and hopefully CRT facilities will be OK. I appreciate that. Things are going to be difficult for us all.
  9. Hi am new member.. Been lurking for years and finally joined.. Feel have to comment on this thread.. Saw one of the wyvern boats in Milton Keynes this afternoon... Heading north away from base.. Called wyvern was told they had told them to return.. Said they are not complying and just passed 2 winding holes and marina entrance where they could have turned. They found that amusing. Apparently they key 4 boats go out yesterday afternoon...
