I have never owned or hired a bath tub cruiser and have occasionally wondered how difficult they are to handle when doing a stern on mooring as visibility is so restricted.I have owned two boats and hired fourteen times so it should'nt bother me but it does as I am hiring one this August.So,just how difficult are they.
I know I shouldnt be asking this as most people appear to handle them with no problem but I am a just little concerned...Lesley.

Hiya Lesley, we have hired bath tubs a few times and have found that if you take it nice and easy there should be no problem at all, we have had a few near misses when my other half has got a bit stressed in the wind, so we have chosen to go with a couple of centre cockpits this year, just till he gets a bit more handling experiance Smile

Bathtubs are just what they are referred to as best left for bathing in  tounge-in-cheek

I remember as a child, my first experience on the broads
I so badly wanted the swanky looking plastic cruiser,
but my father insisted on "Mr Mole" whose charming
wooden narrow boat exterior, hid his own plastic based heart.

I learned to love "Mr.Mole" even though I fell foul of narrow boat life as I kept running along the side and ran out of boat. Much to the amusement of the locals.
Good times  Smile

Griff and co. Wood should be left to the trees
no these are easy to moor - as easy as mooring is anyway

the thing is like them or loathe
them they provide safe cheap roomy
boating on a budget and have given
many people the chance to try boating
and maybe got them hooked
i hire them for the excellent room in the well
for fishing
sure they are not the best looking boats
but they do whats required....and thats all some folk want Cool Indifference

i hate it when i have to agree with two people who have diametrically opposed thoughts.
bath tubs i don't like, the style is cr*p, but as he
says, they do the job they  were designed for, and do it
fairly well.
so i shall shut up and remain silent for a while mainly
cos i'll be sitting on me hands
