" as the authority are unlikely to sponsor us they are considered fair game for criticisms,"

They give us cash so we forgive everything????? Sounds like trump and the nra and possibly one of the worst statements I've ever heard from a forum.

Smoggy surely it is as stated"they are considered fair game for criticisms" which is not "we" consider them fair game for criticisms. Therefore may I suggest that it is not a forum position.

It is simply not acceptable.

This topic seems to have escalated out of all proportion.

Now everyone has had chance to vent isn't it time to get back to the purpose of the title of the post ?

Surely it is the prerogative of the original poster to request that a post gets back to subject. Maybe the OP is happy to enjoy the deviations despite them being off topic, those making the postings posting are.

right , we have had our little diversion from the thread, so we will leave Cal to proceed with his holiday tale  on this thread. sorry about that Cal, and back to you.

I think the OP has taken heed, or achieved his original objective,  the heat and fire is only coming from elsewhere.

I blame the hot weather :default_biggrin:

OK Mod Hat on, I request that this deviation of the post stop to let it return to the OP's holiday tale. the deviation has taken a unpleasant turn

An early start from Oulton to try and beat the heat today. Then a quick pit stop at Worlingham for breakfast. 

Soon it is into Beccles.

We have managed to get on the 24hr BA moorings at Beccles. So instead of heading on through to The Locks today we have decided not to look a gift horse in the mouth and will stay here this evening instead.

Sydney has had a quick cool off in the slipway and now we are all sheltering in the Bear and Bells for a couple of pints in the shade.

Had a lovely day in Beccles and now we have set up camp under the bridge for the evening.

No bbq tonight. Feel like we are on the Atkins diet already. Even the dog has turned his nose up at sausage this morning. Cajun salmon salad instead.

We were up and about early to try and beat the heat this morning. Had a very pleasant run from Beccles to Reedham Ferry.

Someone's holiday hasn't gone to plan. 

Sad sight at the end of the Chet this morning. A shame as it looked a very tidy boat.

Yikes, one of the silver mystiques by the look of it, hope everyone is ok.

The boat will be ok, back on hire in a few weeks with a new interior

Be careful of the T.O.S. folks. I am sure the boatyard would not like to see this advertised.

Don't often  post but this thread reminded me of our first boating adventure when the children were small some fourty years ago! We hired from Hearts Cruisers and the first stop was Berney Arms. We came in at such speed assuming that the boat would stop like a car.(Nobody told us otherwise) Crack went the bow. We were mortified and my husband went inside the bow to try to push out the dent. We were just a young family on holiday, not reckless or being stupid just clueless.We now have our own boat but you can bet your life that whenever were are on it we make at last one foul up when mooring. The difference is now that we approach slowly and are aware of the tides etc Yes we try not to moor in really busy spots but we also  always  help to moor  and give advice if necessary regarding the currents tides etc. We have all been there.No boater whether private or hirer sets out to cause damage or harm.I remember that bump each time we pass the Berney Arms.The dent is  probably still on the quay heading.

Sorry don't agree, these things can happen to any boat, hire or private, no-one is suggesting the yard is at fault.
