George, it makes me so sad when pontoons go into a harbour, it means that the fishing is finished from there. The final nail in the coffin, as it were. On the other hand, what would become of the harbour, derelict and silted up?
To be honest, I prefer the latter to yachts. Just a personal opinion.
Is this the Banff that the gem in the Canadian Rockies is named after?
Where abouts is it actually, and why are there no boats moored up?
In OZ there is such a shortage of marina berths, that a facility of this nature would be full from day one!!-- if not before.
Graham, According to the locals, this is bound to silt up again, I wonder what the Shearwater would do to this.
David, This is on the NE coast of Scotland, and is a county town of centuries, so it is likely that Banff Canada is called after it, although the main hotel here is called Banff Springs. The lack of boats is due to the marina being not quite finished,and as it's winter a lot of smaller boats are stored ashore.
