Today we have had one bozo who not being able to see the front of his boat ended up thumping Mort's boat. I'm sorry but when people who are at fault, and he was at fault, call it "an accident" saying "these things happen" and then have the nerve to say "the insurance will deal with it that what its for" then seemingly wash their hands of it I get f***ing mad. It wasn't an accident! It could have been avoided if he had turned where he had enough space. And then to blame his son for not telling him how far to the island that really takes the biscuits. The man in charge of the boat is the man with the tiller in his hand. The accident was in my view total incompetence.
Then later we had another idiot came along who wanted to put a 60ft narrow boat through a 4ft high bridge. By the time he decided he wouldn't go through the hole he barely had enough time to select full reverse. He was lucky! Funny old thing he was the second twat to try that today.
Later this evening I went to the Londis shop, we had run out of milk, I came back to see another boat moored behind Jim. A Tupperware called Charlee. Not to worry that it is a NO MOORING place it's his choice really. What really annoyed me was I tipped over his rope. He didn't have any pins and, wait for it, he tied his boat up with black ropes, it was dark, to the NO MOORING sign. He must take the award for twat of the week, but it gets worse. his son then came up and breasted up along side him and between them they closed off half the bridge.
You just know he knows how wrong he was when he called me a "pathetic little person" for taking a picture of the situation. Sorry if he thinks I was wrong but F**k mate you need lessons in basic stuff like reading. He left saying he was not welcome. It has nothing to do with not being welcome there are some things that you just don't do and he did several, any boater has the right to display righteous indignation when these people are out and about plying their stupidity.
