Do Not Moor 

1. Where there are red markers – these indicate underwater obstructions.

2. In the New Cut between Reedham and St Olaves – there are dangerous stakes submerged at high water

3. To navigation posts or buoys except in an emergency – these are only for channel markings and not constructed to hold a boat.

4. To large wooden structures (dolphins) which are for use by ships.

5. Where notices forbid it.

6. Lower reaches of rivers, where the current is very strong and the rise and fall of the tide is very large.
