    Problem is that times have changed since some of those byelaws and there are increasing numbers of boats with no gas and only means of cooking is by electrics and built in generators.
    (I am not one of them by the way.)
    There is quite a difference between a cheapo portable one off ebay that makes a racket and a properly fitted built in one with silenced exhaust.
    EA is taking these customers money if they state this on the form so it would be a bit rich to then have a go if they are making a cup of tea the only way they can.

    There are no bylaws preventing the running of generators on the Thames. Weekend marina sailors may find them a nuisance but a lot of boats on the Thames are actually on a journey and need to charge batteries either with engine or generator.
    There is a generally accepted rule of thumb that engines and generators should only be run between 8 in the morning and 8 at night.
