Just over a week ago I took Resolute from Glascote to Huddlesford for the L H CT rally, the first bit of boating I've done for a while. I pass moored boats on tick over and was pleased to be thanked by the owners for so doing. So far, so good. Shortly afterwards a boat approached from the opposite direction at full throttle, water boiling over the offside bank. I moved over slightly, as I have done for many years, giving us both the benefit of deeper water in the channel. He didn't slow, waved to me to move over further, which I ignored. " You're on the safe bank! " he screamed as he passed....I've never heard the inside or towpath side called that in many years of boating. " You could ease off! " I replied..... " Others have told me that! " he yelled, without putting the offered advice into practice. A boat's length away, his final shot was to accuse me of being a self abuser....the pot calling the kettle black, methinks....what's your view? Cheers! Dave
