Tempting....I like the idea of a full time job being only 37 hours / week....If only I could cut my working week by 35+%!

What a job....
You can be as grumpy as you like...no-one dares to cross you
Freedom to make own local rules - breach of which can now be criminal offences
Licence to make money from harbour users / visitors
Employment of aged volunteer jobsworths who shout at people for doing more than 3kts (unless commercial fishing /Grockle boats)
Don't actually provide adequate / useful facilities for Ribbers

Or....
You can work very hard to make your harbour a friendly place with the facilities people want (e.g. adequate walk ashore short term visitor pontoons etc...)

Could be a great job - in addition to the hours!

Will there be local harbour users on the interview panel???

I could walk to work! Parking spot in the middle of town if it's a bit wet - loads of space to park the race boat :-) Historically a Navy background has been an advantage in getting this position ..............

Here's a collective pic of the 'type' required, courtesy of the Marine Volunteer Service, Morecambe.

Come to think of it, what would the collective noun be for a group of Harbourmasters?

I think they work really hard
They need to be paid more
Hours are very long
Very fair in their judgement

And the collective noun for a group of habour masters is a "pleasantry"

In summary a very lovely bunch of people
