Not even using their own pictures or website either.. 

Thanks for drawing my attention to this.  I have removed most of the website since it was used without my permission.

At Northwich but I presume not being sold by Matt as the advert is a long way off their usual standard. 

Correct. Nothing to do with Matt or Rebekah!

Can you not have the pics removed from the sale site? Bit harsh to not even ask given its your pics and site

I'll say.  There are at least fifteen grammatical errors in the Apollo Duck advert :(.

Ask them to spell your forum name. ;)

Have you tried asking apolloduck to take the ad down on the basis that it infringes your copyright?

I'm pleased to say that the advertisement has now been changed and there is now no use of my material. (Well, there's still my picture of the Kelvin, but I'll let that pass).

I get that it's a bit cheeky and understand  professionals have a financial investment, but is it really a massive deal to use a few pictures on an advert? Or is there another issue here? 

No. 

If I'd been asked I would have gladly given permission to link to my website, provided it had been made clear that the  pictures in the advert were lifted from my site.  Also a potential buyer might think that the boat as described on my website was as it is now.

All the advert needed to say is something like: "You might like to visit narrowboatowl.com to see how the boat was restored by a previous owner".

 

My website is clearly for all to see and some have found it interesting to read about the history of the boat.

 

I hope that Owl goes to an owner who will cherish it.  It is a lovely boat.

I would indeed, but it comes up as "temporarily unavailable".

Totally agree, I found it confusing that is had your pics on even with your butty but then wasn't you selling, I find it quite annoying when you look at adverts with the info or pics is either old or from previous sales. Dosnt give a good representation of how the boat is now.

 

It put me off going to look at a few boats as the info was old and old pics 2-5 years go, things change alot in this time

What I really enjoyed was watching the film of your butty HAMPTON reversing at Braunston and thinking "What on earth is going on there, narrow boats don't dance like that!" It took a bit of digging to work out what was going on. What a machine!

"No day dreamers or time waster . . . she is priced realistically".

 

He has a way with words.

Complete cabin rebuild, new bottoms and I can't help but wonder how much bondo has been squeezed in those planks.

It would make a lovely boat though.

I'd love to have it but I've reached the age when I can only manage one boat, one wife and one car to maintain. There was a time though.......

Does it have to be ONE of each though!

 

Perish the thought as to which of the other two would go to make room for a second boat! ?
