Well during our recent Easter Break Hirecraftuser and I had the great fortune, or was it mis fortune, to meet up with a young Saily.  After a long hard push we managed to get him to sit in the Stinky boat and well he seem to just 'be at home' you should have seen the smile of this poor Sailys face.  Well should I let you into the secret of which Saily was involved well........ just take a look at the pics and you will see for yourselves.

The glazed eyes, the maniacal smile, the drooping ears, the throttle full forward - he's being converted, good grief what are you doing man? don't look into the light (of the dash board) you'll be assimilated.

Is it to late to help this poor lost sole ?, will he now spend the rest of his days drooling over Brooms catalogue's, talking about Penta's, inboard vs outboard, flush toilets, heating systems and bow thrusters.

This calls for an immediate intervention. For his own safety the thumb and forefinger of his right hand must be bonded together to stop him from trying to turn an ingniton switch, bungee cords must be attached from his shoulders to his knees in case he tries to stand upright inside a vessel.

Please folks, find it in your hearts, dig deep and donate to www.sailys-shouldn't-be-allowed-near-power-craft.com.

The life you save could be that of the next person to stick a bowsprit through yout porthole.

Don't think so Richard Smile

...and just to redress the balance, let me first point out that those pics were oh-so-carefully posed whilst parked (that's stinky-speak for moored up)at Womack with the engine (horrid thing) switched off.....

....but later I did my best to reverse the conversion and a certain HCU took this pic of a certain H trying to work out how to steer with a stick instead of a twirly thing.....and have to say did a fine job of it....

but had a few squeals later when the sails went up Evil Grin



it's a bit blowy, best put a reef in the burgee...

What that picture clearly shows is that poor Helens left arm is being tethered to the stick thing so she can't escape, and is being forced to give a fake smile as you were tightening the ropes.

How on earth are we expected to believe that they actually enjoyed being forced to sit in a flappy boat, and drive along the river in total peace and quiet, without the lovely sound of the diesel engines, and the intoxicating smell of the fumes!!!!

As for parking, you mean to tell me those things don't have brakes.  Well Mr Coriolis, you can fool some of the people all of the time etc, but most of us know what your game is!!!

Tim

Timjen, the non flappy Swale eye!

P.S. if I ever see you driving along on the water, could I have a go pleeeese. Playful Wink

Oh BOOOO...Craig spotted the deliberate mistake....

well, it was the only way I could entice Alan & Helen on board.....they couldn't be seen out on a boat without some sort of mechanical din going on.....and my little 4-horse Yam hardly counts as a starter-motor for some of the bigger mobos......and anyway.....

....if you ever met me trying to tack up Womack Dyke you'd WANT me to have the Yam on.....cos it takes an age without Smile

but if anyone has a cure for exhaust fumes......answers please on a postcard to..... Smile

it's a bit blowy, best put a reef in the burgee...
