Do you think that setting an overnight stop should override the "avoid stopping in lockflight etc" function?

If so it's a code change. If not, the easy fix is to mark the Natwich visitor moorings as a "haven".

How easy would it be to make it that ALL visitor moorings are marked as havens automatically>

So if a place is marked as a Visitor moorings in its list of particular types then its set as a haven

Is it worth putting a tick box in planning a route [Moor overnight only at visitor moorings] or [Moor anywhere overnight]?

Lets discuss it on the boat.......

Changed title to better reflect what we are talking about. Generally I think this is something that will be reliant on getting getting mooring data. So far my "make it really easy to edit access" hasn't picked up the way I wanted, so I'm somewhat sceptical of moorings working, but we'll see.

I'm therefore lowing the priority as well, as it is dependent on a lot of manual data editing.

Having thought about this, I think the best approach is to treat anything marked as a reasonable quality mooring as somewhere you can stop. This turned out to be a minor piece of coding. So we treat "official moorings" and anything with a mooring quality of "OK" or better the same as "haven"s, and allow stopping there.

At stage I'll write some code to suggest nearby moorings (a bit like winding holes) which will be useful before we have the level of mooring data we need to implement "known moorings only" but think this is probably better as a new feature request, which I'll create.
