    I’ve attended many Hunt, mainly in a black hoodie trying to distract the hounds. Those that believe the hunt are chasing a drag scent are just trying to kid themselves. Ask yourselves why a terrier man is needed on a drag hunt? The hypocrites go go to church in the morning to sing all things bright and beautiful then mount horses to kill all things bright and beautiful. Elitist, barbaric and time for a full ban.

    Oh I most defo have, before your time as a mod but I had a bout of Tourette’s combined with exteam honesty which was very much against the rules I was deservedly given some time to think about my actions. Turns out I still feel exactly the same way but happier to keep it to myself!

    I didn't say anything about last week, because it wasn't. However neither was it months ago. Enough news reports exist from enough sources to place it as being December the 8th. But WTF does it make any difference if it was today, yesterday, last week, 3 weeks ago, or several months back. It s a completely unacceptable thing to happen, and not the kind of thing anybody should be forced to witness or otherwise caught up in. Please lets cut the snowflake" bullshit. Using that term can't make these behaviours acceptable. https://metro.co.uk/2018/12/09/dog-killed-fox-hunt-chased-across-motorway-8224161/ https://www.bbc.co.uk/news/uk-england-northamptonshire-46510782 https://www.cambridge-news.co.uk/news/local-news/hunting-hound-dies-after-crash-15525393

    In the unlikely event of that being the case, can you explain this ( https://www.independent.co.uk/news/uk/home-news/cats-hunt-fox-hounds-deer-sussex-hastings-celia-hammond-a8151911.html )? Why would the person supposedly 'dragging' the 'smelly rag' have taken it through a cat sanctuary? Surely that would have been a bit unethical, wouldn't it? For those who say that it is traditional, well I know a few people who have bulldogs, should we now do away with abattoirs and 'humanely' despatch cattle using all these bulldogs since killing bulls was what they were 'traditionally' bred for. The whataboutisms don't really cut much ice either (what about the bullfights?) since none of those who oppose hunting are particularly well known for supporting bullfighting. Having attended a number of hunts in an operational capacity, what invariably irritated me was the sense of 'entitlement' of the hunters. We were there as arbitrators to try to keep the peace whereas the hunters had this odd belief that we were there to look after their interests.

    This is not only barbaric, but disgusting. I have no interest in hunting, but I know several people who hunt, and they are decent, normal human beings, not elitist snobs. Hunting may be an anachronism, but to wish what you have on those who are simply behaving according to a tradition in which they have been raised, however out of step with modern thinking, reveals an almost psychopathic wish.

    This was very much on my mind when I posted, and exposes the lie that the hunts of today are chasing a dragged scent trail. If foxes are a genuine pest then the gun is the only method of control that approaches humane despatch. Suggesting bull fighting is worse is disingenuous, there are many documented acts of cruelty carried out by those intimately connected to the hunts, and is akin to saying being done over the head with a lead pipe is preferable to being stabbed. The term snowflake is a fairly vacuous response to many points of view that are hard to defend, and as such is meaningless. What is your take on hare coursing, cock fighting, etc? These were once regarded as traditions. I struggle to place angling in the same category as the wanton cruelty that is fox hunting, and have personal experience of many occasions of pollution and illegal netting being reported by anglers. Many of today's rivers would be devoid of life without the campaigning of various angling organisations, with the Thames having recovered from near extinction on the lower reaches by the mid eighties-which sadly has been undermined by regular discharges of raw effluent from the Hampton court area.

    What does that have to do with anything? I am a former sab who has never harmed a horse or hound but I have been beaten by a few terrier men. I eat carefully sourced meat (much of it hunted, sometimes by myself) but I fail to see the relevance. Surely the only relevant dietary question is "Do you eat fox?" I don’t, by the way.

    The Hunt thugs cover their faces and try to break Sabs cameras when photos are taken of their illiegal activities....only this week a West Country cider maker & farmer who is vehemently anti hunt and had chucked a hunt off his land when they were trespassing the week before had a barn burnt down in very dubious circumstances losing a fair amount of kit.....that's why Sabs cover their faces...the goons think they are above the law. incidentally the hunt twat that was photographed in the A14 incident tried to stop anyone showing his face in the pictures that are circulating on the web.....

    Lets hope a few of those on the horses fall off and suffer a long slow death....or worse! Thankfully the pro hunt lot are a fast dying breed...not fast enough though in my opinion....they care nothing for either the fox or the horses or hounds...all are expendable and just there for their entertainment. I will no longer use the pub at Norbury as it’s hosted hunt meets. Please also note that hunts are not allowed on any CRT land....if you see them feel free to photograph and report. I'm happy to be an anti hunt protester and will do everything I can to stop this barbaric sport.

    It was also a single from The Dammed Which took it from the movie https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/There_Ain't_No_Sanity_Clause The title and chorus of the song were derived from a scene in the Marx Brothers' 1935 movie A Night at the Opera, in which Groucho Marx attempts to explain the intricacies of a business contract to Chico Marx. When Groucho mentions the "sanity clause", Chico responds, "You can't fool me. There ain't no santy clause!"

    Just a thought Instead of banning people completely would it be possible to ban them from posting in the forums and to give them their own unmoderated Sub Forum where only they could post and only registered users could view. This would allow them to vent and others could see how silly they are and laugh at them. J

    With the possible exception of one, which I put in as a little joke.., they are all covering their faces because they don’t wish to be filmed breaking the law. Pre social media I would have kept my face uncovered, but these dirty b’stards are known to lie and post up untold shite. I was once once arrested and then quickly de arrested for sabbing in the new forest, the entitlement of the hunt master pushed the arresting officer over the edge and he let me go saying he didn’t know how I didn’t knock him out!

    You know perfectly well I was referring to your hate-filled diatribe. I said that I had no interest in hunting, and in fact I'm not bothered whether it is banned or not, but the blind hatred of some antis disturbs me.

    The hunt is not breaking any laws. If you are taking direct action against the hunt you are the one breaking the law and deserve anything that gets 'thrown at you'.

    Sam of course is right and there are two sides to the Loo problem. I would never have a dump through though and ripping this one out to replace it with an HDPE tank would be difficult.....so replacing with a cassette is the obvious place to be. However, then you are carrying buckets of sh*t around every 3 days and constantly looking for places to empty them. I much prefer taking my boat to a little man, for him to pump it out, each month.

    I have no problem with hunting with dogs. It is after all what very many common breeds in the UK were bred for in the first instance. If it offended few snowflakes, so be it. I think people get offended far too easily in this day and age. And you will find that very many who vigorously campaign against hunting have never even stepped foot into the countryside and witnessed its traditions.

    Hunting in the UK is so incredibly inefficient, quite apart from the ridiculous baggage that comes with it, hunting pink, MFH etc. I grew up living on a huge country estate, where the owner employed gamekeepers to keep down the fox population, which was done with a gun, and very effectively too. The local hunt was allowed to hunt there, once. The sensible fox lead the hunt over the landowner’s front lawn, and the hunters were stupid enough to follow the hounds, causing the destruction of a perfectly lovely lawn. The hunt was promptly banned in perpetuity from hunting on estate land.

    If you're on ab 60 x 12 widebeam and you already have a waste tank installed then you probably have enough space for a pump out and cassette. The best and worst of both worlds!

    I had two sow's, one called Liz and the other called Lil. One had 4 piglets and the other had 10. When reared, SWMBO took them to market in our old Land Rover - on the way, the back door flew open (she hadn't tied the string up very well) and there were 14 Porkers running up & down the A483 between Wrexham & Chester. Wish I'd been there !!

    He had a meltdown ala ladyg and made a dit of himself. Nobody got hurt and I’d have thought it just needs laughing off. Then life could get back to normal here. Some people take both themselves and life way to seriously. It’s just a little forum.

    I think the idea that this is a “family forum” frequented by 5 year olds is just a ridiculous excuse for censoring anything slightly offensive to the snowflake brigade. We are lucky if people reading this forum are below the age of 40. I bet there are zero members below the age of 16. And if there is one every 10 years so what? There is far worse in Enid Blighton. So why not do the same with this thread?

    As jokes go these are reasonably funny, though not classics, and reasonably tame. Never sure about this concept of a "family forum", surely its a boaters forum and a lot of boaters tell some dodgy jokes and use some rough language. This forum should reflect life on the cut. I always feel a bit sad when I see couples crammed in the cratch trying to drink a glass of wine as I suspect they are trying to live the life that the magazines have sold them, and must be unhappy about the rough beer drinking liveaboards all around them. This forum should be more honest. Those who want a family forum can sign up to mumsnet ? So, there were three labradors in the vets waiting room, a black one, a brown one and.......oops, no, that one will get me banned forever ...............Dave

    When we bought out boat in Croatia we had to apply to the Minister Of Maritime Affairs for permission to de-register from the Croatian list of vessels. then the document had to be notorised. We have now registered it on the UK SSR (Small Ships Register) but it is just a voluntary register. We have retained the registration markings as it gives other vessels something to 'call' rather than boat heading 'XYZ' I believe it would be beneficial to buyers and sellers if the SSR was mandatory.
