Sadly the gentle days of messing about in boats having fun seems to be over.

Surely no incident can be an excuse for shouting obsceneties in front of families with children.

It is simply yobbish behaviour for those lacking the ability and intelligence to quietly discuss and resolve any disputes and finishing up with a handshake.

What hope is there for the future of the civility of this activity when kids witness an adult behaving in this way?

And the really sad thing is that he appears to be proud of himself by posting this story for all to read...

The really sad part is that people don't seem to be able to queue or wait for 5 mins, if the person in front is a little slower than expected or god forbid actually offer to help them with their boat.
The civility left the rest of the queue on this occasion when the few jumped to the front as they had landed on the slip (as they could see a queue of boats on the pontoon) blocking it for all then allowed their children & dogs to run around behind boats and trailers as they prepared their boats for recovery.

But each to his own, only my view

So next time I see someone reversing fast in a manner not akin to a rabid snake towards my tow vehicle and my girlfriend who's standing behind it and is going to get crushed when he hits it I'll just sit there, 60 feet away and say 'oh my' and shake his hand afterwards shall I?

If you were there Timw then you've got the right to comment on my language. As you weren't then I'd appreciate it if you got very carefully off your horse as it's quite a long way up.

You seem quite pleased to post the language you were using on a public forum, so I have every right to comment on it.

Using expletives such as those you shouted is inexcuseable in front of families and children.

You may have been urgently trying to alert, but most people on a day out simply don't want to hear that sort of language.

And yes if I was there I would have told you the same thing.

1) You seen eager to tell the story and your writing appears to show a puff of pride in your tale.

2) Using the excuse that children were using worse language than you is ne
beneath contempt. They look to adults for an example, and although many set a bad example there is no need to join them. There were no doubt many decent families on the slipway that day who shouldn't be subjected to such behaviour.

3) So being incompetent deserves a shouted expletive? No it doesn't.

4) You doubt it? Perhaps yobbish behaviour by shouting swear words is supposed to frighten objectors away. It doesn't worry me...and I repeat if I was there, I would have asked you to stop.

You bore me. You bang on at everyone without any idea of the real facts and add your own suppositions to 'prove' your points.

We don't need a self-important moral guardian.
