The papers make for interesting reading, thank you.

It comes as no surprise that private boat owners are well and truly p!ssed off, but it is a surprise that it's actually getting through the BA, to the extent that the papers actually mention it.

But once again, the private owners are being lined up to bail out the hire companies. Last weekend, the owner of one of the largest hire firms cruised past me on his £200,000+ private boat. My heart (and wallet) bleeds for them.
