No spread of pre-book­ing

Canal Boat - - Letters -

I’D LIKE TO agree with Nick Wall that boat­ing is cer­tainly about the free­dom to roam ( Edi­tor’s Wel­come, CB, Novem­ber about CRT’s plans for a one-stop­book­ing ser­vice).

How­ever, when so many peo­ple have jam-packed lives, we want to make it as easy as pos­si­ble for them to en­joy their time on the wa­ter, and hav­ing the cer­tainty that they can plan their trip into places like cen­tral Lon­don and be sure of a place to moor.

I can as­sure Nick that pre-book­able moor­ings will only ever be used for very pop­u­lar spots that make up a tiny frac­tion of moor­ings on our wa­ter­ways. MIKE GRIMES Head of Boat­ing, Canal & River Trust
