I struggled to get the back end in on Monday, turning was bringing up masses of silt which will obviously sit under the remaining 3 or 4 boats moored there if they don't move very often. The boat in the article is the nearest to the facility block so hasn't got to worry about anything sanitation wise, however, there is no refuse facility there any more, and the surrounds are neglected to the point of shabbiness. There was also a lot of floating and sunk litter there.
Towing the boat to another mooring in the same basin will not solve anything.
Towing the boat to another local CRT mooring will probably inconvenience the ill boater as he will have to have transport to get to doctors and other facilities.
Dredging the basin is long overdue. Repairing the fences off the road is probably overdue too. However, CRT probably think that if they continue to do nothing, money will continue to be paid until the basin is as empty as the one next to their old office at Fazeley Junction, tamworth.
