Our boatyard (High Line Yachting) is run like a business, not a charity. Sometimes it can seem a bit officious but at least they stick to the rules and things get done. We all get licence renewal reminders, and safety inspection reminders . Visiting tradesmen, where allowed, have to fill in a risk form, and so on
Today I got a letter saying that following a couple of break-ins to boats, they are ramping up security. Already we are well fenced in with electronically operated gates at either end of the moorings, but now they are looking at improved fencing, CCTV and and another gate between the yard and the moorings and they are introducing a visitor badge scheme. We're supposed to challenge any unknown characters who may be hanging about near the boats. It all sounds a bit draconian but those of us with precious property stored on site will have less to worry about I suppose.
Actually on Herbie we are lucky to have Saltysplash alongside and Lydia on Serendipity next door, who are often around and I'm sure keep an eye open for us. Thanks to Lydia we're also amply supplied with guard cats!
