What happens to you if you don't book and just go?

And what about those of us with no onboard internet? I'm just going to ignore it and stick to the time limit. The sign says you only need a permit if you are going to exceed.

When I booked a passage last week, the CRT booking system wouldn’t let me book on the day of entry, it had to be at least the day before.

The other point is the booking system wants an exit date (presumably to start a new 28 day clock running). This means planning and sticking to that plan, never mind the weather. You could, of course, just book 7 days even if you plan to do it in 2 or 3 days.

Yes, I don't understand why they can't let you book on the day, given its not as though it's limited capacity. Bit annoying if you're not sure what your plans are.

Maybe so you can't book after you have been spotted.

Rather than reading five pages of this thread can I leapfrog forwards to ask……..

 

Do I need to register/book/pay to transverse the Bridgewater? If I do, where do I do?

 

Do I just plead ignorance and plough on regardless? A few years ago there was a nasty man (employee of Peel Holdings) who threw abuse at CRT boats. I wanted to meet him but failed miserable. Think he must have been hiding behind bushes or summat.

 

Anyway any true guidance is much appreciated.

Yes just go onto the CRT web site to the page where you book things and fill it in, easy. You need to do it at lest  the day before you enter the Bridgewater, no charge.

Seems odd to me that you book passage of the Bridgewater Canal on the CRT website, whereas the Bridgewater Canal website is entirely silent on the matter!

Do the Bridgewater  boats have to book passage on CRT water?

I didn't know that, where do they book?

Click on Bridgewater Passage and select travel on to a trust navigation.

Surly you have to log on to get to that page, how do boaters without a CRT account do that?
