Following the severe dent put in Whimbrel by the drunken crew of the boat Warneford, owned by RNAS Yeovilton but managed by a hire boat company, on a weekend that featured many late night booze cruises by overloaded boats of drunk and frequently abusive young men we thought we would help.
So if you experience any anti-social bahaviour or collision from a hire boat out of office hours, please ring Steve Lewis, local enforcement officer on 07771 943152 at any time of day of night.
As enforcement officer it is, of course, Steve’s job to police such behaviour and we are certain he will welcome your call.
It goes without saying that all such incidents should be reported both to the hire boat company and British Waterways as soon as possible and a claim submitted for any damage involved.
We’ll keep you posted on the progress of the good ship Whimbrel’s claim for repair of what is substantial damage to the hull and immediate interior.
