Li­cence to cruise

Canal Boat - - Letters - GARY ED­WARDS, via email

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.
