To move or not to move, that is the question.

No problem - both those lines were somewhat surplus to requirements. And I am not sure who decided that four fenders were needed,

 

It's a rather pleasant river, though quite hard to find moorings other than pontoons like this. Here's another one (Fiskerton)

I have been down as far as Washingborough when I sailed / motored a Wayfarer dinghy from Nottingham and I did think your photo of Bardney pontton looked similar to the Washingborough one which is a mile or so upstream. Having said that there must be hundreds of similar around the country.

Its becoming increasingly difficult to even get on the pontoon moorings during the summer with the influx of narrowboats that seem to be visiting the Witham. We sometimes have to get a bit creative to get a mooring.

On the subject of moving other peoples boats we have had ours moved several times and whilst on the whole we don't find it a problem if the boat is tied up correctly we have had the boat damaged by someone not tying it up correctly and leaving it rattling around. Nothing major just some scuffed gel coat but annoying none the less.

In my defence I did say I didn't know the area very well! I know that's home territory for you so I definitely stand corrected!

 

(Good to see you posting on the forum again, I always enjoy your comments and trip reports)
