Last week, I got falsely accused of overstaying by the Canal and River Trust enforcement officers.
Moving every 14 days
As we know, I’ve been making a point of doing this since I got moved onto 6 monthly.
The CRT sent me this email on the 12th, saying I hadn’t moved.

Dear Michael Tyler,
RE: BONNIE LADY (*******)
Let’s keep our waterways flowing
Using our previous working days’ sightings, it looks like your boat may have been moored in the same general area for more than 14 days. If you have moved since the sighting was taken (e.g. moved over the weekend if you received a reminder on Monday), then thank you and you do not need to take any further action.
Please remember that when you’re cruising you should be on the move every 14 days.
If you have been unable to move due to recent weather conditions then please move when conditions allow.
If there are reasons you’ve had to remain moored in the same area for slightly longer than planned, please contact me on the number below and we can discuss your circumstances.
It’s really important that we keep our network moving and maintain mooring availability.
