Agree with your comments. Above is a significant general win for boat owners, even if it didn't help Ravenscroft.

As one who lived for years on various boats, I am sorry about any boater losing their boat, although there are ways of not paying licences that do not involve risking such loss.

However, I thought from the particulars of claim that the Navigable Channel argument was on shaky ground, to say the least.
I too applaud any efforts to keep the powers of the CRT in check, but once again, having been much involved with the mobile and static water living community, I know that the very nature of the beast that brings people to live in an al fresco manner on often pretty rough old boats means that any authority will be resented and defied, clashes are inevitable.

Pig headedness is not the way to go, though.

I agree and wonder how much of that was Moore presenting Ravenscroft's theory as opposed to Moore presenting something boat owners were trying to establish.

Compare that to the identical legal bill of £90k for Wrecka whose case has been going on a lot longer (7 years?) and whose had at least 3 hearings in the High Court so far, either Captain Pugwash has been ripped off or Wrecka's had a bargain.
