For those who may still be a little skeptical about the potential impact of silt accumulation in inappropriately sited marinas, here is a photo essay of the marina at Thames. This may be an extreme case, but is certainly a reminder of what can happen if maintenance dredging becomes too much of a burden and the boats are left to wallow in the mud. Not a pretty sight. The date of photography was 13th March 2014. These photos were taken at about half tide.
