Be gone you scummy boaters

This is a stretch of the River Soar looking back towards Normanton-on-Soar. Across the River are the tail end charlies of the Normanton-on-Soar Boat Club moorings. There is an attractive Inn with River frontage - but no moorings and there are these...

Emergency moorings should you and your 20 ton bath tub get into trouble on a raging river.
I suppose if you are in the proverbial then these emergency fence posts are a God-send, lashing yourself and boat to these amidst an angry torrent surely beats the local water meadows but the welcome of a proper mooring adjacent to some form of civilisation is not to be had a Normanton; I wonder why?
