Put the Navigation License fee up to £20,000 a year, say you have to eat ALL THE FISH YOU CATCH and then see how many are left!!!

At least part of this is down to vanity though. Peel Marina has been a success and has certainly boosted the town. But whether these new maintenance costs stack up is another question. £7M now plus whatever future further maintenance costs pan out to be. And past costs too, notwithstanding that it's all at least partly due to DOI failing to discharge their prescribed maintenance duties.

Even if the finances don't add up, nobody will admit to either that or what they were told about what would happen by local knowledgeables. That would be a humility too far.

Any amount of money will be spent trying to make a silk purse out of a sow's ear before anybody admits they got it wrong and should have listened.
