Apparently the swing moorings cause a lot of damage to the seabed, so this is good news for the sea life in the bay.

There has been proposals from sectors of the nautical community to build new concrete moorings to solve this issue, (around the Pine Walk) but not many people would want to see that. Besides, unless there are restrictions in place....and actually enforced, then the new moorings would fill up and the swing moorings would still be in place.

I wonder how they will enforce this scheme anyway, you can't exactly install signage saying the bay is full!
