    Default Mermaid Quay Pontoons

    For some reason and I don't know why I decided to visit the pay and display pontoons at the Pierhead today instead of my usual (graving dock).

    The pontoons were in one hell of a state with lots of seagull guano covering the decking. Very poor show CHA . . . you have a cheek charging for facilities in such poor condition!

    Well, they are Welsh Gulls and maybe they were getting ready for a certain Irish ref to officiate in the next Blues home game.

    Have to agree, last time we were there - Sept this year, they were minging.
    I had to wash the bottom of my shoes before boarding my boat!
    And why have some of the pontoons been taken away?
    And yes, I started two sentences with an "and!"

    When was that, and why did you pay?I dont think they even check tickets anymore due to lack of manpower.

    I always pay - but not a tenner. I don't think its unreasonable to pay to visit the pontoons. Would be better if they were cleaner
