But I didn't argue with you, as I said, you haven't paid! I'd say it was you who's taken things personally but perhaps that's just the nature of written word forums. Sometimes humour can elude.

 

In all fairness, "Don't sulk" is a very patronising way to start a reply.

Don't sulk, I saw it. But you didn't pay for the 30 minute argument. Anyway it is just a boat's stern tied to a lock gate, is it particularly clever in some way that eludes me?

I was sticking up for you as I that's how to hold a boat back to the bottom gates while another (in the context of this thread, yours) can go up in the lock whilst the butty waits above the lock.

I had deleted this next bitbefore I posted but I might as well add it in now.

My word you come across as argumentative. I like to think that boating is fun but you do seem to take things very personally!

Jerra, you do seem to be arguing for the sake of arguing.

Did anyone actually see the picture I posted earlier if how to hold a motor against the bottom gates?

I sometimes think I'm the most blocked person on here!

I've made a couple of posts on this thread in support of the OP but on reading the whole thing back he seems to enjoy winding other people up whilst ignoring other posts.

When I've steered an historic pair you'd never see us insist we go ahead of you or turn a lock in front of you.

I'd also like to add that the few old boatmen that I have had the pleasure to meet and take advice from wouldn't either.

I would try to reason some more but I haven't the energy.
