  1. When I read "no time wasters" in an advert I imagine a vendor who turns aggressive when things don't go their way. Not that I'd be put off going to view, however I do wonder what they were hiding that got rumbled.

  3. The need to have everything today. Economy of scale. Trucks & lorries still being needed for final delivery from the transhipment depot. Are merely three insurmountable obstacles, without delving into issues around infrastructure, weather and costs of labour for multiple handling.

  5. Strewth! If I'd called out The Emergency Services every time I'd stemmed up and couldn't get off since 1966, I'd be so well known to them they'd be inviting me to their Christmas parties.
  6. I don't recall anybody talking about this, do you know when it was?
  7. Well I'm intrigued. It's like saying "Don't think of lemons"

  9. I was sad to learn of his passing. Although not boat connected (so far as I know) certainly his creativity touched the lives of many members here. Whether you settled down to watch Z Cars, Dr Who or Wallace & Grommit you'll have enjoyed his work. I understand he was also a close friend/work associate of at least one of our members.

  10. It's a year round issue at Nether. Every time I've been going down through it, no matter what time of year or time of day the lock keeper has always warned of their behaviour. Due to their habit of shouting abuse and catapulting maggots I've learnt to barrel through at the highest pace I can achieve.
  11. "Reason for sale is that I have run out of time to complete this project ......." Complete? Does he mean to start?
  12. Any request for money in exchange for professional services should be accompanied by a detailed invoice.
  13. Of course we weren't there, nor involved. And I suppose guesstimating against the confusion of telephoto lens, plus we can't see the narrow boat or its manoeuvres until it's in front of the camera doesn't help any. So sticking to the known facts ... Canoeist wobbles around towards the bridge, can he see the narrow boat? Regardless of what the nb is doing, our lad sits in the bridge hole for nearly two minutes just gazing at what's coming towards him. He then keeps up this motionless observation for another minute. So mainly he's obstructed the navigation, in a narrows and made no effort to clear the way nor broadcast his intentions other than he was taking up residence. Let's have a butcher's at "The Bargee" ... It takes him nearly two and a half minutes to get to the bridge, did he see the stationary canoe blocking his passage? Should he have been expected to realise it was there? Did the canoeist attempt to attract his attention? He appears flummoxed, loses his concentration, doesn't see the offside bank narrowing the bridge hole even further. Perhaps he sees the canoeist reversing out of the bridge and decides to continue, who wouldn't? I agree there is fault on both sides, I think the boater got in a faff when presented with illogical and unpredictable behaviour. I think the inflatable canoeist might have been on his maiden argument. He seems to be making the rules up as he goes along and displays little or no understanding of likely repercussions. And who falls out of a canoe trying to swipe at other users? A bit embarrassing. I hope he doesn't use roads that way.
