So, today we had a gorgeous hot, sunny, calm day
. So far so good.
We arrived at the slip to find the car park fairly empty.
Still going well.
But then we came to launch and found one selfish speed boat owner getting his boat ready in the middle of the slip taking about 20 minutes.
I didnt mind too much as there was room the other side, well that was until another stupid selfish speed boat owner decided to drive his car down the ramp and block it for no obvious reason.
But then they popped their bonnet and started trying to jump start their speed boat that was already in the water.
Then i was suprised to see them heading out to sea (they had now moved the car) rather than recovering their boat with dodgy battery.
Anyhow we launched, had a great day out and about 4 hours later were enjoying a nice mr whippy at Whitstable when the lifeboat launched.
About half hour later whilst enjoying some waterskiing we saw them towing back the same person that had had to jump start their engine earlier. It really does make me angry. They knew it was faulty, but they still went to sea, they had to call the lifeboat and waste their time and money. The lifeboat page even states they recovered a boat with electrical problems. Bloody idiots.
On the plus side, recovery was quick and easy
and the ice cream was nice but why is it people block the ramp rather than prepare in the car park and go to see with dodgy boats????????
