Able to get moorings

Published: Friday, 21 July 2017

I was pleased to see that those moorers at the moorings at Tonbridge have finally been moved on, so now perhaps honest boaters will be able to get moorings.

There is a shortage of good moorings with water and power on the Medway around Tonbridge, yet those boats had been hogging those for years, and I know for certain they were not paying anywhere near what they should, hence their quick departure when the landlord took over and demanded proper payment.

Already the moorings are being taken up by boaters who are prepared to pay, unlike the scroungers that I understand British Waterways [Canal & River Trust] allow to claim the moorings on the canals without paying.
