Us, in short.
We bought a one-month EA license at Denver sluice back in September, and it now has expired.
However, I phoned up the EA to buy another, only to find out that- because the Denver lock keeper hasn't yet passed our details- or the cheque!- on to the central office of the EA, we're not listed on their database and so can't yet buy a new one until we recieve- by post- an application form and send it back- rather than just doing it over the phone as I'd hoped.
In the meantime, then, we're unlicensed until the paperwork is sorted out.
Now I understand why several boats in Cambridge I've seen have notices in the window saying, "License paperwork in the post"; I think I'd better get paper, pen and some blu-tack!
Wonderful, wonderful up the Thames Tideway
