In Topic: Guessing your current speed (Hire Boat)

Speed is dependent on more factors than what the engine is doing so 2000 rpm on one stretch of canal will propel the boat at a different speed to that on another stretch.

I was once shouted at to slow down when I wasn't steering and was sat at the front of the boat. What the woman expected me to do about it I still don't know.

 

Another time we were following a boat which did pass a moored boat too fast.  We were just approaching the moored boat and I'd slowed right down a few boat lengths before but the person on the boat decided to shout at me to slow down before I'd even got to them when the one responsible for making them move about was in the other direction.  I put it down to them having to shout at someone but had gone to the wrong end of the boat :)

The picture in the OP comes from a Boatshed advert...

The advert itself says "Stowe Hill Marine" as the builder.

Does the OP actually mean marinas and moorings rather than actual social clubs?
