Sallins houseboat facility

Waterways Ireland is seeking tenders for building a “houseboat facility” at Sallins. The interesting bits:

  • 210m of fixed timber moorings for long term mooring
  • 45m of fixed timber moorings for transient moorings
  • metered water supply
  • metered electricity
  • sewage pump-out
  • anti-erosion netting for the canal bank.

During construction, the canal will be closed to navigation but will remain in water. I wonder why.

IRBOA, the Irish Residential Boatowners Association, seems to have vanished, at least from cyberspace: I can’t find its website.

  1. IRBOA has indeed ceased to be Brian – not only in cyberspace but also on the water itself. Which is a bit of a pity for, given the current dramatic changes on the waterways, an organised and considered approach through its recognised form may well have served the community rather better than individual protests.

  2. it would greatly benefit from a bit of dredging also.
