Almost a banter

Featured Posts

We are out on Kelpie and are moored behind Mac of Cygnets boat but unfortunately he is in Scotland at the moment so we won't meet :-(. 

I gather that another forum members boat was also in this area recently but it has gone 

Do we get brownie points for having "almost"  banters?

We passed a boat named Cygnet the other day.

Remember where you saw it - this time next year it will be a Beautiful Swan.

There are about a dozen of us.  I've met 6 or 7.  Shared Sutton stop lock with another Cygnet once.  Have to keep a sharp look out for pike, though.

Edited to say that the 'other forum member' that Haggis mentioned is none other than DHutch, the high heid yin.

Then I will have to guess whether it was your boat. I waved anyway.

Just to reassure Dan  Emily Anne is still round the corner from Cygnet and both boat's looked OK when we left this morning

I reckon it depends on whether or not he is the sole owner or he owns it jointly with Mrs Athy.

Name dropping again!  I have just seen DMR s boat moored along from us! It is many years since we met on the Birmingham and Fazeley and hopefully we will encounter one another in the morning although we are facing in different directions

Not really wanting to go off topic, but on hot days the roof of the boat gets really hot, if you put your ecofan, (other brands are available) on the roof pointing sternwards, would you save Diesel?

Whatever you do, don’t point if forwards - you’d never get anywhere.

Of course you would but the speed limit prevents you doing it and it would be very difficult to slow down. Can we get back on topic please? .....err..what was the topic?
