Any content, information, or advice found on social media platforms and the wider Internet, including forums such as YBW, should NOT be acted upon unless checked against a reliable, authoritative source, and re-checked, particularly where personal health and liberty is at stake. Seek professional advice/confirmation before acting on such at all times.
Users who are found to promulgate FAKE NEWS on the forum in regard to this issue, intentional or otherwise, may find their access terminated. It is your responsibility to provide references to bona fide sources.
FAKE NEWS, in this regard, is that which is posited by organisations, media, etc., that is repeated on the forum, or used to support personal opinion/hypothesis posted by users - FAKE NEWS is not necessarily the personal opinion/hypothesis being posted in itself, any issues with such should be challenged respectfully.
IN ADDITION it seems that conspiracy theories are finding their way onto the forum. This is not the place for such content. Users who post it may find their access limited or permanently suspended. Please leave it where you find it.
But will the 8th March still enforce staying local even though allowed out for recreation.I was being even more hopeful:
From 8 March, the Stay at Home restriction will continue but it will be amended so that people can leave home for recreation as well as exercise outdoors - with their own household, support or childcare bubble, or with one person from another household. Social distancing and other safe behaviours should be followed.

and 12th April at the earliest before we can stay onboard overnight. Maybe.
Perhaps too soon to know. May depend on the difference between guidance, the law, and what you deem morally right.But will the 8th March still enforce staying local even though allowed out for recreation.
To express some empathy perhaps us UK boaters could try to emulate the journey MED boaters all undertake.In the interest of solidarity maybe UK boaters should desist using their boats until us poor med boaters have access.
No rude reply's please. (some chance)
