Well, well, well, Not only do idiots come to our waterway but they come with threatening behaviour. nb Brasenose came back today and the tiller was still at 90o to the rudder. I took some pictures and was threatened with violence. None of the monkeys on the boat could see there was a problem. One foreign guy thought it was all very funny, another said.”I am a publican, “and I wouldn’t let you in my pub.” I actually wouldn't want to go in a pub where the boss cant do joined up writing. Isn’t it amazing he would stop me going into his domain for no reason, but him and his apes can come here a behave in a dangerous manner. I continued to point out that the boat was not safe and he said, “What's it got to do with you?” After which he threatened to ‘do’ me.
So I phoned up College Cruisers and spoke to a very nice lady, Cerys Bunns I think, the bosses wife and told her about the tiller. She knew nothing about it. Who ever I spoke to two days ago did nothing about my call at all.
Come to that CRT did nothing either. I phoned CRT and the chap said he will pass it on to the head office again. He never asked me where I was!
What is really annoying is they blamed me because I had a canoe in the water, right in the corner.
I hope Cerys takes the muppets to task over this and passes their names and addresses on to the APCO. The last thing the waterways needs is another bunch of idiots with no common sense.
