    Hallmark 70ft is a maybe

    I went to the Hallmark disposal auctions when they went bust at thier workshops in Deeside about 15 years ago.... it was reminiscent of a 'MFI reject / returns' warehouse, they barely gave the stuff away and rightly so, they were sh**e with a capital S!

    Brotherly Love?

    Sounds like a normal working day in 'times gone by' for the traditional carrying boatmen & their families. I'm all for keeping the early boating traditions alive, collarless shirts & waistcoats, ribboned plates, scumbling, chimney chains and fighting on the towpath at mooring up times!!

    Oops! - Twice!

    He pulled in St Mary's on the Rufford branch yesterday for diesel, seemed 'all a little too much' mooring at the diesel point. He tried backing in at hi revs and resulted it another crash into the bank! Dont think he had an overly successful trip overall!

    What a strange & hypocritical analogy posted by someone who has gone on a forum as a guest yet judge it all,on another 'safe' forum, by one thread they have read!

    It's a big bad world out there ya know! How have you managed to keep them safe from nasty swear words? Theres far worse than an odd F word freely available direct from google!!

    I'm intrigued as to why there has been no comment from anyone 'In Power' as to this comment, that's a pretty scathing observation posted and something that I would of thought would need to be rectified! Quite probably why this site boasts so many 'members' but actually, has so few 'active' contributors!
