And on the same sub­ject...

Canal Boat - - Letters - A McRAE, via email

FIRST OF ALL, can we stop la­belling con­tin­u­ous cruis­ers with the same la­bel as those who choose to con­stantly moor?

We are reg­is­tered as con­tin­u­ous cruis­ers and cruise the canals all sum­mer, then win­ter in a ma­rina. It is ar­ro­gant of Mr Ed­wards to sug­gest we should pay a li­cence fee to con­tin­u­ously cruise. I as­sume he is a ‘tweeker’ – those who only use their boat a couple of weeks a year then ex­pect ev­ery­one else to leave the canals to suit them.

I agree the con­stant moor­ers are a big prob­lem, but don’t paint us all with the same brush. Mr Ed­wards should be grate­ful that gen­uine con­stant cruis­ers keep the canals in use so he can enjoy his hol­i­days.
