(iv) to avoid injury or illness

"I had to anchor in the middle of nowhere to avoid COVID19 - my family or neighbours may have it."

Rightly or wrongly I think this genie is out of the bottle. People are staying overnight on boats in large numbers, I don't see it stopping.

Fixed penalty is £30 if paid within 14 days. Less than a night in a marina!

So anchor with no risk of spreading the virus and help out the cash-strapped local authorities. Quite public-spirited when you think about it. 😁

Hi Jumbleduck, could you PM me as if possible, I'd like to ask you about Port Bannatyne marina . Sorry, as a new member here it seems I either don't have rights to PM or (far more likely) am failing the technological competence test. Thanks
Sorry - I don't think I can PM you until you have done whatever it takes for you to be able to PM me. I've just tried!

Thanks for trying - I'll check again with the Forum admin to see if they can tell me what I'm doing wrong
