    Default Essex/Thames moorings or lack of !

    Hello all
    I was thinking about moving my boat down from the Norfolk Broads to near where I live in Westcliff on sea, I rang Southend borough council, foreshore dept. to enquire about a mooring at Two Tree Island, to be told there is a two year waiting list ! anyone know any other moorings in this area Southend/Westcliff or Leigh/Canvey Island area
    Thanks
    James

    Few years back I was at Essex marina, was about 1300 a year for a 21 footer, I think thats a bit steep ! I fancy exploring the Thames for a few years, I look out at it every day from my living room !!

    You could try Benfleet Moorings, just up from Benfleet Station. 300 approx per year for a 21fter for a step on and off mooring. Downside is you can only get in and out about 1 hr either side of HW.
