maybe these guys would have appreciated some help instead of taking the piss out of them.

i once remember doing a major boo boo which ended up in the rib departing the trailer and landing on the slip, along way from the water!

i could really have done with some help rather than the onlookers having a laugh at my lack of experience.

i still make the odd cock up now which as i am older than back then , my pride will get dented, however i am still glad for people to offer there help to me.

a bit of wisdom will generally always be gratefully received, so would an extra pair of hands to push the grounded boat off the beach!

We weren't having a laugh for goodness sake, far from it. We were absolutely flabbergasted to see what was happening. We were sat way up the beach, and anyhow going anywhere near that boat with its prop spinning would have been suicidal! Earlier in the day, they caught my anchor line when leaving the boat lane. This really was a case of common sense (or rather the lack of it!) and respect for the safety of others in the vicinity.

I think we have to realize that some people just do not have that common sense. Some people are completely blind for there own safety and of others, but I really dont think many of these people go out deliberately to act in such a way! If i see somebody acting in an extremely unsafe way, I will try and help them. If they tell me to get lost, well I have tried.

Im all for keeping people in this sport, and not for putting others down (no matter how stupid they are or look!) As I have said earlier, I have learnt by my mistakes and have greatfully accepted others help & wisdom.

Im all for the fun that comes with boating, ive put myself in some fantastically stupid positions over the last 20 years.

But it still makes me cringe when i see some people without a clue turn up on the slipway. But I am happy for them.

The sea is one of the few places that one can turn up with no certificates or paperwork and have some freedom and an adventure. If you cock it up, it may take your life, but so may crossing the road.
