NABO drops opposition to roving mooring permits while CRT CEO says the permits will not be available nationally

Friday, February 21st, 2014

In a meeting between CRT and the National Association of Boat Owners (NABO) on 14th January, NABO stated that “Putting the legal arguments to one side, NABO, as a policy decision, are happy for the pilot [roving mooring permit] operation to proceed and will monitor a) its success and b) its effect, if any, on other boaters and the availability of moorings.
