Can you believe it - the person to try and flag all the boats down on 26 December on the Keurbooms river passes me today on a small rubber duck with no reg numbers - no life jackets and no safety equipment on board - can not have any experience of skippering the unsafe tube he was on,as he rode into me twice just to get away.

New bylaw states no speed south of the N2 bridge - hope this does not chase a lot of the money spending visitors away from the area as some of those boats are in the 700k range ????

Good Law !

In Knysna Nat Parks have embarked on a program to limit the number of boats on the water due to congestion.

We can expect some laws to this extent in the near future.

Control is always a good thing.

With regards to Keurbooms, there would then still be the upper portion to go and "Jaag"

North of the bridge is was very unsafe in December as all the boats in the south came there to ski and pull tubes. So many holiday people are going to take there vacation somewhere where they can use their boats - big concern for people that spent a few million on holiday houses to enjoy the river for fishing and using their boat - the people that "jaag" can be controlled and is sure that that is not the main concern. Limiting the boats on the river will be a good option

Just hope the area don't loose a lot of income in these difficult times and people start losing there jobs due to the person with the money going to another resort to make use of his boat ....

Thys,

It is unfortunately inevitable that job losses will occur.

Same happened with St Lucia due to 4 x 4 banning some years ago. The Town collapsed, Tourism was greatly reduced other than international Tourism which only benefits the few who has interests in that sector.

With regards to limiting the Rivers users I am all for it due to the recovering possibilty of fish recovery. The questions will be who will suffer. I believe the Locals.

This can be an endless discussion and get political so this is where I stop.

Stywe Lyne !!

Agree fully - this will be a very sad day to see Keurbooms and Plett loose huge amounts of income due to bad decisions that could not be controlled and managed properly.
