For this encounter I have no time or respect for this company.
A.C Yes very inconsiderate and a fould mouthed lout, but rather than painting the whole company with this brush I would have picked up a phone and called his boss. If his boss was any self respecting kind of business man he would have rollocked the lout.

Unless that was the boss on the jetty thing then yeah its a company problem!

Codprawn and timw - You're a breath of fresh air !

We're all aware of what is obviously good practice, (and usually even essential ! ) but as you so rightly point out, the "traffic wardens" are of so urgent to judge, and then spout the oh so predictable tirade of self-righteous indignation at somebody else's operation of which they usually know little !

Good for you guys and a welcome measure of balance !

Whilst on the subject I noticed that the 4 or 5 speedboats that head out of Padstow carrying upto 12 passengers a time never have LJs in sight. considering that they operate in some pretty rough waters as they head up the Estuary over the Doom Bar I am amazed they do not use them..

Hello Ladies/Gents

Re the "Lulworth Cowboy," you will be pleased to hear he gone, myself and family have bought the boat and are now operating out of Lulworth Cove, we are a local Lulworth family and my father worked on the boat as a teenager.

Although the "Cowboy" is renowned for his bad manners and unfriendly approach the jetty is still private property and as you can appreciate we are trying to run a business. If you've seen the jetty you will understand that it is not capable of taking 2 boats therefore anybody mooring up will cost us money if it holds up the trips, we are also not insured. In addition we are dictated to by Lulworth Estate and part of our agreement with them (which is pretty expensive,) is that we don't allow other boats to land on our jetty or launch from the beach without prior arrangement.
