I never did like Steve Haywood

Featured Posts

Well either it was deliberate or he's completely useless at handling his boat. No, it was deliberate... What an A-hole.

Even at the beginning of that video the narrowboater is contravening regs by going across the bow of an oncoming vessel and forcing it to take evasive action. He should have turned behind it's stern in order to cross the river. I'm afraid some canal users should take a course or at least do some reading before venturing onto rivers. They come from the ditches in their sewertubes so I suppose you can't really expect much better from some of them.

And he has the cheek to post (Twitter?) that the other boat was at fault!

That was a deliberate ramming, he didn't have to slow down to avoid a collision, he only had to straighten up. Pillock.

Which boat is Steve Haywood?

The NB "Justice"is clearly in the wrong.

Having owned two "yoghurt"pots and a "tin slug", I have experienced some insulting comments from narrowboaters about GRP boats,but I have to say always in fun.

This video made me very angry and had it been me rammed like that,I would have found that individual to make my opinion of him very clear,and if it led to fisticuffs,so be it!

Surely this should have been taken up with the authority that run the river? It was clearly an intentional contact apart from the atrocious action with the other boat.

I always thought he put on an "outraged" act for his magazine column.

 

Clearly I was wrong, he genuinely is a nasty piece of work.

What a tosser, I have a 20 ton narrowboat and I can stop it within it's length.  That was deliberate.

The chap should send a copy of his video to the editor of canal boat to enquire if this is the sort of behaviour they encourage from their team.

Unfortunately that is what boaters have to put up with when (some) canal boaters get on rivers.

 

It was intentional - even if he 'couldn't stop' because he was 20 tonnes and had a trad engine, he could have turned away instead of turning towards the boat.

 

When approaching a mooring you turn to approach from the down stream side to have better slow-speed control - approaching from upstream in (say) a 2mph flow, and maintaining (say) 2 mph to retain steering means you are approaching the mooring at 4mph, doing it 'correctly' means you can approach at virtually zero speed and still maintain steering.

 

He was in the wrong - no question.

Speechless! The right to the mooring wasn't slightly ambiguous, i look forward to meeting him in a bridgehole to test his sense of entitlement.

Oh dear. And this chap in the narrowboat writes in a magazine professing to know about boats? I hope it isn't in the boat handling section.

 

Accidents happen, but this was no accident, incompetents or just nastiness.

I'm spitting feathers, I'd like to meet him on solid ground.  Imagine that, putting that ladies safety at risk just to prove what folk seem to suspect, that he's an arse.

It's his partner I feel sorry for, imagine being shackled to that.

He's whipped himself up so much via his column he only sees/creates "ag" in real life.

He rammed me head on in Banbury once. The front guard on my bow belted him out of the way quite well. He got upset, I shrugged and left him fuming.
