  1. HELLO MATE , MY ADVICE IS DON'T BUY A NEW BOAT, SEARCH LIKE A SHEPHERD TILL YOU FIND ONE YOU LIKE AND HADDLE LIKE A JEW. YOU CAN UPGRADE ALL YOU WANT ONCE YOU FIND THE STYLE YOU LIKE, AND BOATFITTERS ARE LIKE "COWBOYS WITH NUCLEAR WEAPONS" EXCEPT THE WEAPONS YOUR HARD EARNED CASH. AT LEAST IF YOU BUY A 2ND USER BOAT ITS YOURS WHEN YOU SPEND YOUR CASH. BAD CLIMATE FOR NEW BOATS UNLESS YOU WANT A LIVERPOOL/ AMBER BOATS LOAD O CRAP! LOL, JUST AN OPINION
  2. SHOULD A POOR MAN WHO HAS A GENUINE WATER LIFESTYLE AND AN EXPIRED BOAT SAFETY THING HAVE TO PAY MUCH MORE MONEY FOR A LICENCE EVEN IF HE HAS SAVED FOR IT AND PREPARED TO PAY FOR IT , BUT UNFORTUNATELY CAN'T GET THE WORK DONE IN TIME FOR THE SAFETY THING ? WHY SHOULD THIS MAN PAY MORE THAN THE MAN WHO HAS MONEY AND CAN AFFORD IT? THE LAWS YOU ARE IMPLEMENTING ARE REMOVING THE BEAUTY OF OUR WATER, THE WATER ACCOMODATES EVERYONE ESPECIALLY OUR POOR, OUR WILD AND THE FREE. It makes no sense it makes life harder for the needy, is this a good thing? even if they are prepared (though not always able) to pay their way?
  3. THEY SEEM TO HAVE OVERCOME THEIR WASTE DISPOSAL PROBLEMS WHILST NOT PARTING WITH EVEN THE SLIGHTEST COIN? MAYBE BRITISH WATERWAYS ENFORCEMENT TEAM COUD HELP US CLEAR THE SHIT OFF OUR BOOTS? AFTER ALL THEY ARE PAID FOR DOING "SOMETHING"? nOT EVEN A DOG HAS HIS HOME STOLEN WHEN RAISING A YOUNG CHILD, BY THOSE WHO MISAPPROPRIATE MOST OF OUR FUNDS AND HERITAGE AND PROPERTY, ITS A DISGRACE THAT SHOULD BE TAKEN OUT OF THE CONTROL OF THE BANKING SYSTEM. hOPEFULLY OUR GHOST'S WILL BE BACK TO HANT THEM AND THEIR FAMILIES?
  4. I DID SEE A PLAIN BLUE BOAT BEING TOWED JUST ABOVE WELSH ROAD LOCK COMING UP TOWARDS BASCOTE LOCKS WITH A WEE SMALL GREEN BOAT BEING TOWED BEHIND , I AM NO EXPERT AND I MAKE NO ACCUSATIONS TOWARDS THE INNCOCENT ! THIS WAS LAST MONDAY EIGHT DAYS AGO ROUGHLY? THE BLUE BOAT WAS TOWING THE WEE GREEN BOAT, THE MAN IN THE GREEN BOT WAS A MANK!(MANCHESTER) SMALL FELLA CHIRPY ATTITUDE I HOPE THIS HELPS YOU FIND YOUR LOST ONES?
  5. You could always pretend you've got alzheimers and rob them so blindly that they may wander off into the sunset in a confused daze ?
  6. We've been together for nearly 13 years and I knew something was wrong when she started not eating the tripe that she's been cooking for the last 12 of them , she's a cross between a Doberman and a Jack russell, she has extremely bad breath and is attracted to Irishmen that stand outside pubs , She is quite Freckley grey and hairy and tends to run around making a noise and chasing her tail, If you see her you probably won't be wearing a crucifix and under no circumstances should you approach her mention Sharpness. Thanks No reward is offered
  7. I am commenting in complete and utter ignorance having not read the slightest part of any posts except the original post, but which way was it going ? whats up ? whats down? Give me a clue and I'll find it ? THE BOAT HASN'T BEEN STOLEN!
  8. The way my current boat fitters playing things it probably will be! don't laugh please.
  9. Hi journey person , just tried that and i couldn't see ought, though I am just trying to ad a little humour , a lot of peeps on here seem to just want to earn brownie points or baffle with science. Must admit though I've only browsed up until now so who am i to judge? all the best
  10. SORRY IF YOU HAVE HAD THIS PROBLEM PRESENTED BEFORE, My Sea searcher magnet is wreaking havoc in my private life, you see i tend to wear steel toe capped wellies and despite placing the magnet in my pocket my walking fashion has been totally irrelevant to my surroundings ever since . Having gone to watch a gypsy boxing match the other night a few spectators started to pinch my bottom and call me ducky due to the strange effects of the said magnet . Has anyone got a useful suggestion that doesn't involve removing my wellies?
  11. Hello, I am relatively new to boating this century and am a bit down on my luck, I am thinking of buying a grp 73 foot cruiser that I have fond on a Thai dating website , I have been told that I may qualify for a large amount of benefits if I travel around really fast with a dual purpose megaphone. (I am considering a retractable ladder and a pair of wellies as optional extras)Is there any there any truth in this? And who should i vote for to be a boater? Thanks
  12. I think the whole boat could benefit from a nice set of synthetic fender covers , like the one's on the plastic gin palaces I've seen on the river severn ! whats all that about then ? Am I missing something ?

    Sky-Broadband

    I use a dongle with an external antenna attached to the boat roof for weak signal areas and it also stops the signals bouncing all over the inside of the boat, I got hold of an " unlocked " dongle and use 4 different payg mobile broadband sim cards which usually ensures you get a signal from at least one of them. I can supply antennas to fit most dongles which tend to get a better reception than a phone handset used as a modem .
