  1. can anyone explain the different moorings...

    exactly why i do not use this site much
  2. can anyone explain the different moorings...

    moorings there are 1 continuous cruising moving to another place when time is up visitor moorings signed elsewhere 14 days max. 2 Leisure moorings you pay your money and leave the boat but can stay on it for a limited time dictated by mooring owners terms. 3 Live aboard if permitted by mooring owner basic condition is be away from the mooring for 2 calendar months each year to avoid local council problems. 4 residential right to stay on boat all year on owners mooring this will probably incur council tax which you have to pay over and above mooring fees.
