    It is this sort of behaviour on canals that results in empty pounds in the morning, causing problems and delays for others whilst the perpetrator sails blissfully on oblivious and uncaring of the disruption left behind. Very selfish. And contrary to CRT’s (and BW before them) boater’s guide and good and common practice for almost everyone else (certainly anyone not extremely lazy and selfish).

    I’ve towed a few boats that I’ve found to be in trouble over the years....two were where RCR couldn’t be bothered & had left the owners...both of whom were members...to their own devices...both tows were much longer than RCR allow too!! No money changed hands....I work on the principle that it might be me needing a tow one day! I did get a rather nice Thai meal as a thank you tho!!

    Wow! Such a beautiful love story with the significance in no regrets and what are the true values to be found in life. I adore the way you have shown us there can be beauty in each and every moment, especially when in crisis, depending on how a person views the situation, guess it's during these times that we feel connected with those around us hey, as folk actually stop what they are doing for a short time to meet or help another; leaves us feeling joyful to be human. What some may call a mistake others will term as life learning and a great way to spend one's time. As I have often found myself saying to my mother over the years, it may well be a mistake but it is mine to make! There's usually always a reward of some kind or another even if it isn't the reward we had in mind at the outset. I agree, I don't think anyone will argue that any time spent messing about on the river is time wasted, more it was time spent well, as you say. Thanks for taking the time to share and for putting yourself out there, such a thought provoking post. Hoping it gives all the nay sayers something to think about. Well said Sir, 'to golden moments'.

    Fly Navy, your tone is somewhat inflammatory. I trust Matty's judgement any day over yours, especially when the example boat you provide sold in April 2018. Hardly just missed is it? There is a lot of junk out there, and with respectful posts, you will get lots of help sifting through it from knowledgeable people on here.

    You've not only chosen some shit design narrowboats, you are not looking at good design or longevity of value, you are just looking for an argument...so,,,, JD narrowboats have the awful design of a front end not usable by normal folks....which would be good with a queen sized bed in the front....but no, they cant do that due to regulations having width and emergency access out of the front side hatch. It also has a hideous pram cover. Galley pearl looks like a Chinese nail polish parlour without the staff. The MGM boat isn't even built by MGM, it is built by Measham narrowboats, lazy advertising so what else is wrong with it.... and then the Welsh one.. Built in 2006 using Welsh Steel by CFM Boat builders, this cruiser stern Narrow Boat comes with Eberspacher Central heating as well as a Diesel Stove and of coarse the engine for keeping warm in the cooler months via radiators. the boats are crap, the adverts not thought through or even spellchecked. sorry Fly Navy, I have stayed up speshly to investigate your findings and I can only see you as what they term a WUM or crapsockpuppet. good luck with your further boat purchases and come back here to thank us kindly eh...

    I don't know why the prophet Isaiah disliked British motorbikes: Woe to Ariel, to Ariel. (Isa.29.1)

    per capita we are a huge carbon emitter, compared with India and China. let us hope that things change before they catch up with us. it's about sexual intercourse. do you really need me to explain? I am not aware that big business has yet become involved in bedroom gymnastics.

    You are so correct, because a big part of the reduction is the fact that heavy industry - including iron and steel manufacture both of which burn huge amounts of fossil fuels - has moved out of the uk, but we still consume the finished products, so we just exported our emissions to other countries.

    As has been said... my ropes were untied outside the Navigation pub in Islington. Must have really upset the perpetrator as I barely noticed the next morning...being in exactly the same place... !
