Licence to cruise
HAVING TRAVELLED THROUGH London twice this summer and not found a mooring between Kensal Green and Victoria Park due to twoand three-breasted moored boats, I wonder why the Canal & River Trust does not approach the problem with ‘continuous cruisers’ in a different way.
Why not introduce a continuous cruiser licence fee? It would seem legitimate to me that those who are continuously cruising the system must cause more maintenance and, therefore, their use of the system should cost them more in licence fees.
Perhaps the extra fees would be similar to the costs of a permanent mooring; this may encourage more continuous cruisers to find an approved mooring.
