Tie it to the dock! yeah right! What it should say is let your missus hold the painter whilst stood up to her whatsit in mud & slimy water trying to hold the boat while the jetskiers buzz round creating wake wash, at the same time a stiff onshore breeze is trying to bury her under the boat. Meanwhile you drive half a mile trying to find a parking spot because some coffin dodger has parked in the trailer bays( they need a big space 'cos it's a Micra) whilst they walk their four legged f4nny licker around the harbour. Eventually you get back puffing & panting to find an irate queue of other boaters waiting to launch/recover. Oh then you have to pay £20 for the pleasure to some miserable terwat from the council, that'd be the same council that you've just paid your £1000+ council tax to.
Bitter, not me
