Anyone else use Environment Agency waterways?
I applied for my license 2 and a 1/2 weeks ago via post (the only way you can do it) and although I've rung them on more than a couple of occasions they still haven't processed it yet, although they have received the paperwork. This means my prior arrangements for taking my friend and his kids out for some Bank Holiday fun have been ruined, or I have to run the risk of hoping any officers that stop me believe my story. You can only apply for your license at the beginning of April too to get a full year, so they must have an absolute deluge all at once.
Why they can't have an Internet payment option in this day and age like British Waterways do is beyond me
I've only got a 2.7m Honwave with a 4hp outboard, kept at home in the shed, not a 30ft Marina moored cruiser.
Anyone care to offer any opinions up on what might happen if I do decide to chance it tomorrow and get stopped? How likely would it be for me to even see an EA officer, this is my first year of Sibbing so have no prior experience.
