Symonds is a tosser when it comes to putting together any sort of communique. A better worded announcement looking for support and compliance would have gone far to get results, rather than making stupid threats. The guys a prick.
CANAL & RIVER TRUST TO TACKLE ‘IMPROPER’ MOORING AND MAKE WATERWAYS SAFER
The Trust intends the process to serve as a prompt for the boat owner to moor appropriately and to help and educate boaters that may be new to the water or unaware of the issues caused by poor mooring.
If a boater does not address their inappropriate mooring the process will allow the Trust to take action that could ultimately result in the revocation of the boater’s licence.
Ridiculous. Once again, the only sanction CaRT seem able to entertain for anything, is boat licence revocation and s.8. If a boat is moored contrary to the byelaws, then the appropriate sanction to impose - should the envisaged initial cascade of letters prove ineffective – is prosecution.
If a boat is moored otherwise than contrary to the byelaws or statute, then no offence exists and the ploy of licence revocation for breach of T&C’s brings the whole argument over the validity of s.17 of the 1995 Act into play once more.
That said, the idea of educating boaters firmly as to good mooring practice is a splendid one. Byelaw exemptions for maintenance boats regardless, it would be good to see CaRT leading by example in this arena.

JohnV: There are other drugs but I haven't found the side effects with Ramipril to be bad, it seems to just make my throat a bit more sensitive so things that might have just tickled my throat and make me want to clear it now make me cough.

loddon: The cough is the only one I get from ramipril, although the combinatins of drugs I am on has interesting effects.
