Whilst we sail a sailing boat I don't suppose we can say that we stink a stink boat, can we? No, of course not, we cruise in a stink boat, sounds so much nicer.

Peter,

Sailing without sails is called being "Blown about".

Although this term is fairly accurate when applied to sailies irrespective of whether their bed linen is up the stick or not, it really applies to motor craft when nearly stationary in the water.

Motor Craft are often being "blown about" when having to give way to a sailies boat which is being "Sailed".

Motor Craft are obliged to give way to boats being "sailed" as it has been deemed that boats being "sailed" are less manoeuvrable. This is a quaint expression which perhaps can be more accurately described as being "out of control".

Logically a boat being blown about without sails is less manoeuvrable than a boat being blown about with sails, thus again logically, the sailing craft should be giving way to the “blown about” cruiser. This rarely happens.

There will be a moment when the cruiser approaching the “blown about” state will have the same level of manoeuvrability as the sailing boat being sailed. At this point it is traditional for the skippers and crews of each boat to hurl abuse and obscenities at each other. This is called “Friendly banter”.

Well,  I cruise my cruiser anyway. lol

Ships and cruise ships always set sail when they leave.
In Howard's way, Charles Freer has a yacht...no jib sheets on that one. My boat could be on the back on davits.

I know that some broads boats have baths, but it looks as though they can be used as birthing pools, or should they be called berthing pools lol...
The number of times you see  boats for sale (sail) as two birth!!
Can you really believe that the owner looked after his boat when he doesn't understand what he has?



best regards, Richard.
I can't wait to be back on the Broads.

If we can forgive the spelling errors for a moment (which might be the good ole Windows spell-checker interfering, and a lack of proof reading), the overall style and content of the piece is a far more persuasive advertisement for the Broads than the Warwick Davis programme was.

Just my opinion, of course.

pally, totally agree about the content versus the warwick davis saga, would not have commented about spelling had it not been so glaringly obvious,
the tv show wasn't about the broads it was about warwick davis

We sail our sailing cruiser but not in a National Park, we did sail in a National Park, on Coniston & Windermere! Smile

Best wishes,

Pauline
