  1. Most Southern boaters once up here tend to enjoy it, as they like seeing the industrial side of the canals and enjoy the non congested wider waterways rather then the queues and the miles of continuous Moorer's.
  2. Getting up there( Oh can't do the Trent) No hire fleets, not that many weekend boaters, far less continuous cruisers/moorer's, no big marina's, all of which makes for decent quiet cruising.
  3. It's not that busy, unlike the locks on the Southern canal network. No just spend a lot of time on the on that canal system and enjoy it.
  4. Maybe one day you may change your mind and maybe one day you may buy a boat, I doubt either will happen soon if at all.
  5. You obviously don't know the canal system up there then, rather like a lot of the people born in Sheffield, most don't even know they have a canal terminus in the city centre, I take it you won't be going that way if you ever buy a boat? mind you can always go on Google maps and do a tour of the system.
  6. How do you know the canal system is less seller? Have you ever done the South Yorkshire and Sheffield system, ever took your boat to Sheffield? I doubt you have as it looks like you don't even have a boat, lol.

    Maybe whoever has temporarily lent him a boat just rents it to him for £3000 per year so no need for him to get back on the CaRT system. What state of boat would he buy once you take off the license fee, insurance from the raised £3000. Probably one similar to the one he just had.

    Just shows how unreal and puzzling Athy's comparison with this case and being prosecuted for drink driving is.

    Maybe he should be suspended from owning a boat for a year and suspended from the canals for the same, as it's obvious that he is not capable of maintaining a boat and paying for it to be on the canal system.

    If it had been a car with no tax, M.O.T, and insurance it probably would of been instantly impounded, crushed and the owner fined. Maybe CaRT need to get a bit more heavy handed especially with similar boats around the London area, the majority of paying boaters would not have a problem with CaRT being more forceful instead of wasting money going through the courts. For saying this, does it make me a nasty person or just just someone that's pays CaRT £1100 a year in license fee, who would rather see the money being spent on the canal system rather then court cases trying to sort boat owners out like in this case?

    Completely different in all respects, all that has happened is he has lost his un licensed, un insured boat. He has not been banned from anything, fined any sum of money or given a criminal record, so an unsuitable comparison to use. Now he has been given a boat temporarily so not the registered owner, so no need to worry about the relevant paperwork.

    LOL, more fool the person who has lent him a boat and the people who have given money. Then again if he is not the registered owner with CaRT why does he need to worry about the relevant license, BSS and insurance.

    Seams to happen quite a bit on "Can't pay we'll take it away" when people fall behind on their payments and financial obligations, seams there's little difference between living on the canals and on land. Maybe CaRT should do it more often with un-licensed, un insured boats and sell the rights for the TV programme to Channel 5, If they did maybe my license wouldn't go up every year.

    I would say they are more observations then allegations and being a livaboard on the canals unlike you I'm in a better position to observe. Now get over it and concentrate on the subject of this Thread and not me.
