Obviously, but Exeter and Manchester airports are more comparable than Salcome Harbour and a canal.

I expect the Port of Liverpool Harbour Master is on a tidy sum, though.

Yes. Not too happy about that.

Otherwise I'm generally OK with the way the harbour is run and the outgoing chap has done his bit to redeem Salcombe from the bad rep it had.

Just need to ban the dinghy racing from the harbour when I'm passing through and it'll be perfect.
