mooring mope

A boatie is not happy with an experience they had last Sunday in Thomson Bay.

'landing fee - what a ripp off' is the attention-getting headline.

The intrepid sailors had problems with their designated mooring and decided not to stay at the beautiful island.

"We went to buy a 'subway' takeaway lunch for the trip back, and it was then we saw the RANGER already ON our yacht, he saw us trying to row back in the head wind, and he motored over and hassled us to move our yacht off the mooring IMMEDIATELY, and proceeded to ask us where wevwere, as he tried to call us 3 times (we informed him our mobile was on the yacht and he said I KNOW!)."

Goodness: read the whole story here.

Commenters do not seem to share the outrage.

This seems happier, but we do not understand it.

    I pay over $500 a year to go to Rotto and use a mooring and I'd happily pay $1000 for the experience, I've also had to ask people who have paid nothing to get off my mooring so good on the Rangers because if this person hasn't paid landing fees they haven't got access to any moorings, If they could just let me off for speeding in my tender next time that would be great to.....
