McD - Rather than looking unloved and dilapidated, it looks to me as if The Harpy is being renovated (assume it was moved elsewhere - maybe to dry dock - when the Moorings were under threat). We are trying to moor my partner's barge there and having spoken to the 'owner' of the moorings, it seems that the number of boats is to be further restricted and they must fulfil certain aesthetics i.e. fit in with the other boats, so I wouldn't worry too much. They could turn The Harpy into a floating pub / restaurant I guess!!
