Codprawn,

Try to understand why people may be suspicious of the veracity of your claims:

1. You have been a member of the forum for eighteen months yet (as far as we know), in spite of our invitation, you have not met any other person from the forum.

2. You make out that you have expert knowledge of several subjects yet at times seem to lack knowledge of some basic concepts of those subjects.

3. You hide your identity behind a silly pseudonym and by not posting any pictures which include yourself.

4. You post at some very strange times when most of us are tucked up in bed.

5. You become evasive when asked to provide more specific information.

Now I'm sure plenty of us may display one or two of these characteristics but put them all together and is it any wonder that we don't know what to believe?!

So how about putting us all out of our misery and coming clean? Why not meet up with one of us, come out on Blue Ice, post some pictures of yourself? Then everyone would have to shut up!

P.S. I'm not having a go at you; I'm sure you are a very nice person and some (maybe all) of what you say is true but try to see things from another perspective.

Experience and training go hand in hand. I donít believe either are particularly affective or efficient on their own.

I have seen a number of people on level two courses who have owned boats for years, spent loads of time on the water, struggling with their boat and to be honest are pretty dangerous. Unfortunately they also become less open to new ideas, which makes teaching them harder. So has experience without training done them any good? Not really. Most of these people come to realise through training that actually there are some very simple ways to do things and become much better skippers for it.

Of course you also get people who are brilliant at driving and have had loads of experience without training.

The best way to approach boating in my opinion is to do the course before you start doing anything. Learn the theory and then go out and gain your experience doing things correctly.

How do you measure experience? How does the MCA measure experience? It's difficult to do - so there is a paper based system to illustrate competance. And that's it. That's all it is.

The only people who have asked to see my credentials are the MCA - and that's because they need to 'tick boxes' to ensure that I am 'legal' before they give me permission to operate. How else can they do it?

Suggestions on a postcard to the MCA......

Yes is our family name, some have said it is a bit fishy but some have also said a few things about our family are a bit fishy!! I guess it comes from our time at sea pulling the big ones in...mind you some really big ones got away but that is another story......well it is the weekend nearly so i am going to get me RIB...er...i mean SIB ready for a weekend of tough action out there. Some rough weather instore but I rely on my salty sea dog roots to get me through.

I have recently had the 2.3 rebored to 2.5 so cant wait to open her up and see what she will do....

Codspawn is a lying git!

Codspawn is feebly attempting to gain credibility by cashing in on his membership of our illustrious family - I happen to recall when he was cast out as a heretical unbeliever when he questioned Dad's claim to have invented breadsticks, and been the first Welsh person to wear safety headgear.

Go back to Cardiff boyo - you're not needed here!

Silly pseudonym??? Of course names like donustina911 - Garfish - hard1 etc are all perfectly sensible - didn't realise we had to be so serious!!!

2. You make out that you have expert knowledge of several subjects yet at times seem to lack knowledge of some basic concepts of those subjects.

Examples please!!! The people who have drawn these conclusions are of course SO knowledgable!!! When I am wrong about something I will ALWAYS admit it!!!


4. You post at some very strange times when most of us are tucked up in bed.

Thought it was a free country unless Tony has brought in another law!!!

I HAVE explained this one before - I often work on networks when other people aren't using them!!!

5. You become evasive when asked to provide more specific information.

I do NOT become evasive - I become ANNOYED when I am basically being accused of being a liar!!!

As to meeting up with people I would have loved to when I finally get my boat but would YOU want to after all this????

As to trying to see things from another perspective - maybe I am one of those rare people who is too prepared to take people at face value and I expect others to do the same.

If someone on here tells me they are a neurosurgeon or a pilot or whatever I am not sad enough to go prying and poking to find out if it is true - if they are sad enough to make such claims and they are false then I feel sorry for them - basically I don't give a damn either way.
