....... and how is anyone to know that?

You show your boat name as "boatless at present"

Nobody is talking about your business, does anybody know what your business is?  I don't.

Anyhoo, nobody was talking about you, they were interested in the boat and the subject matter is "Historic Boats".  Not "Self important crabby owners of boats"

 

On that theme, I think Birmingham is a stunning looking boat. 

Congratulations on your acquisition.

If I see you out and about on the cut I shall ignore you.

....... you know!

I only changed my name to boatless at present after I posted that message and there is a picture of me on Birmingham as my avatar. I haven't bought it I've sold it after owning it since 2012.

I may be crabby but I'm only selling because my husband died, I didn't want to sell it but it made no sense to keep it. Feel free to ignore me as is your right.

Allybsc was the seller.

There you are then, it proves even more so it's the boat that matters. 

Owners and past owners are a minor part of the history.

 

Allybsc being the past owner is even less of his/her business, the clue being in the word "past"

 

Congratulations to the new owners.

My original point was that rather than speculate on what was going on why not simply ask me, your point proves nothing.

Because alot of people don't know who owns what boats, I'm buggered if I know who owns every working boat or tug or what there faces are or even the names or worst forum names. The fact you have a pic stood on the back means nothing, I could up load lots of pics of me on the back of boats don't mean I own them might just be a nice pic of me

I had already participated in the discussion when my signature stated that I owned Birmingham, many people on here know me out in the real world. I've been on this forum since 2005.

Well I for one didn't have a clue you owned it or that the owner was even on this forum

Nor I. Though having seen pictures of BIRMINGHAM before thought - Wow! Yes please.

 

It would be a pity if it was 'converted', but owners call the shots.

The new owners don't want to convert it but as it is now theirs it's entirely up to them what they do...but I'm not so secretly glad they don't.

Secondi had no clue

Then why not quote Brians post instead of mine, would have been less confusing.

Some of the people who were talking about Birmingham know me very well.

Well that's the problem with forum identities versus real life. Until now you have been on here under a pseudonym and with an avatar that clearly wasn't you, and although you have over the years made references to your canal-based business, I had no idea who you were in real life, or what business you were involved with, or what boat(s) you owned. As far as I know we have never met in real life, but then how would I know? I suspect I am not the only longstanding forum member in this position.

Are you talking to me here? My Avatar is me and I've never had a canal based business...what are you basing this on?

Well what a lot of posts and all I did was make an innocent post to a boat advertised on the duck that had been for sale for quite some time.  This thread after all is full of links to historic boats that have been for sale.  I was just browsing through the duck to pass a bit of time and was surprised that Birmingham came up.

 

Glad it has finally sold for you.

Same here and I note you have done 2 or maybe 3 edits since I first saw your post
