Since I’ve just been turning around in the boat, my last 3 stops retraced back. That means on the last 3 journeys, I moved from Pig Place to Aynho, then back to Pig Place again.
CRT sent me a warning email about not moving the boat far enough.
As a continuos cruiser, you have to move 21 miles or more direction wise in any year of your boats operation. This counts as the licencing period, which may run from June to June, for example…
Once you reach the June, the annual period re-sets. My licence came due whilst I was at Pig Place and when I had turned around and came back, it was in a new year.
Effectively, they’d sent me an overstay but, due to the fact my licence had renewed, it was invalid.
Got onto them. They changed it pretty rapid, which is a good thing. I was none too happy.
Not sure if the recorder, an individual who walks up and down recording the length of stay of boats from the towpath, had recorded it wrong.
That’s what I’d put it down to anyway.
I decided not to do a post about my location but about weddings and birthdays, which we seem to be having a lot of….
Kerri, my big sister, has had her 50th in the last few days.
We took her out to a restaurant in Cheltenham, with the family.
On a Monday, it was a fairly low key affair, and we were all finished up and in bed by 11pm.
