  1. It's all part of the rich tapestry of canal life... Walkers hate cyclists, cyclists hate walkers, anglers hate boaters and narrowboaters hate everyone including other types of boater! 🤣

  4. Ah, you believed Nigel Farages lie did you. How would he be given access to confidential medical records? That's what he said, within an hour the Home Office had stated, yes, there were 12 new arrivals, but none tested positive.

  12. Guten Nach Mittag volks. I had the German Pfizer Biotech vaccination last Fritag. After effects have been quite horrid. Dream't I bought rimless spectacles like Himmlers, but worst of all I have really frightening visions in my dreams of being in a concentration camp with Frau Merkel standing before me in full battledress, waving a wicked looking whiplash. Sieg Heil.

  14. I didn't. I voted to remain, and still think a decision to narrow horizons and erect borders where there were none is one of the stupidest and most ignorant decisions ever made*. And expensive, as people seem to be finding out much to their apparent surprise. However, it was a democratic decision, we live in a democracy and, unlike many, I like to live in the world as it is, not as I have a fantasy of it being or try to pretend it is anything other than it is. Any other comments I might make would have to be deposited in the politics wing where I no longer appear (much). *ETA

  18. Ok, one of us has had posting rights suspended on here on several occasions and ended up being banned, well after selling boat. On selling boat , also joined several caravan forums, eventually being banned from at least one of those as well. Came back here under your new moniker, steadily getting back into your old stride of posting mostly filler for 20 hours a day....digging into various people just to keep going into the early hours.... The other one has never been banned, never been suspended, although got close when trying to save the forum from going up it's own arse

  23. A frighteningly upbeat news report for such an ominous development. A bit like the first reports we got of a new disease that seemed to be centred on a wet fish market in Wuhan. Within a month it will be impossible to boat the Wyrely and Easington without suffering otter attack. Within a year the fiercely territorial creatures will have driven humans out of the whole of the Birmingham/Wolverhampton/Black Country conurbation. The rest of the UK will face the task of rehoming hundreds of thousands of refugees speaking dialects incomprehensible to their new neighbours. CaRT could turn o

  24. I entirely agree with IanD that most genuine boaters object to s**t being placed in the general rubbish bins whether is is 99% or 90%. It is just something you don't do. If you have a composting toilet fine, but use it as intended and don't dump in in the general waste bin. This is all indicative of the increasing attitude on the waterways now that it's OK to do what ever you like providing you don't actually break the law. When I started boating so 50+ years ago we thought it a privilege to be able to use the waterways at low cost for our own pleasure. Sadly these days its always about the en

  25. My Adverc DCM battery monitor had started to develop an iffy function select switch after 25 years of near constant use so rather than strip the unit first and spend hours searching RS & CPC for a replacement I thought Id send Adverc an email asking if they either could supply a switch or knew what a part number was etc. Got an email almost straight away saying they could either supply a switch or for £16 more fit it for me....Id taken the back off the monitor by then and realised whilst perfectly doable it was going to be a bit of a fiddle and there was the slight possibility

  27. If you asked the man on the Clapham omnibus whether it was acceptable to put a weeks worth of human faeces in a bag and put it in a "public " bin, what do you think the answer would be If you asked the same about dog poo or nappies do you think it would be different? Not sure where the baying crowd bit comes from, your potential actions are unpopular, that's all. And trying to make out that people who are not full time boaters shouldn't have an opinion is absurd.

  34. Martin, for goodness sake calm down. I don't know what it is about you but for a while your posts are "normal" and sometimes even interesting but then a red mist seems to come down and you start playing the man and not the topic and it is not only boring but not nice to read. You then start hurling insults and generally being a "not nice" guy and I wish when you felt yourself getting into that mood you would go chop sticks or something till the red mist goes. This is nothing new and you , in all your guises have behaved like that. I don't particularly want to put you on ignore but if you

  41. If you ask me there's some unpleasant crowing and chest beating going on here. I don't think uncomposted waste should go in the bins but Bob's responses have been rational, consistent, generally polite and well researched, I also know more about waste management than I did before

  44. The only sensible reason to have a narrowboat is to get through 2.1 metre locks that were built on the cheap 250 years ago. For proper waterways a proper boat is a vast improvement in nearly every way. And I say that as a narrowboat owner!

  45. Just confirms what an @rse that man is. Trouble is he's said it now so hundreds will be believing it and spreading it on Facebook and Twitter. He wont care if it's factually incorrect, it suits his agenda. He is possibly one of the vilest individuals who has ever 'graced' UK politics.

  46. This poll won't pick up all the boaters who don't care either way. So it's hardly of relevance. Also, your poll is leading and skewed in its wording. The "(because they did in the past)" bit is especially problematic because it implies that's the only reason to vote that way.

  48. Mr HappyNomatea (Forum nanny) adjusts his desk, dims the light and shifts his points against forum members targeted abacus nearer the candle. He awaits his Saturday fun where someone or other will be trapped in his web of "conversation", and the duel to the death of LastPostWinner will yet again be won by HN...able to post until the moon sets and the sun rises when needs be to win his competition.. Goodnight.
