    Looks like we might need to use the bowthrusters. Hopefully nobody will hear over the screaming wind and crashing waves. 

    I am actually wondering if we will leave port at all tomorrow, but we are setting off from Southampton, evening, so by the time we hit the Forties (which looks like something out of The Perfect Storm) it will be Sunday, and maybe it will have calmed down. But if this thing from Portugal comes up the Channel I can see us stuck in Southampton for the weekend. 

    Memories of an awful family holiday force 6 overnight crossing to Le Havre in the 1960's - the ferry was literally awash with puke...much of it mine. 

    I used to love the cross channel runs when it was as rough as hell ..9/10 eat and drink as much as you liked for free as everyone else was as sick as a dog 

    me and my mate mike just laughed it all off and had another brekkie with a chaser

    Hi all,


    I am looking to purchase a narrowboat and have up to a £130k budget.  Should I look at brokers or look to buy privately.  For brokers, is Rugby Boats a good broker?

    Late to the party hence the edit lol 

  3. ”As a broker” .... you do realise that despite you have spent £xx k on it in the last three years it’s only worth £5000,00 to A blind man with no sense of smell and no mates to advise them 



    Actually said to a chap who said it was worth 45k .. 1970/  1980’s Harborough cruiser stern Fiberglass top .. last year
