    Boats Rampant! So many boats trying to reach dry land.

    I was never interested in owning any sort of boat. Now, at this late stage, I feel that decision has been somehow vindicated.

      Me too; It’s dangerous out there, with so many idiots. Most of those accidents were preventable.

      I grew up around boats. As would be expected, I learned a lot by osmosis, and more by instruction. It still baffles me even today that there’s such a huge number of complete morons out there handling boats.

    News this morning is that America is facing record ice snow water and cold.

    Where is Greta iceberg and when you need her? And TIM Flannery? And the whole coterie?

    The old age adage…” I know boats ” witnessed one here at Burnett Heads 2 weeks ago … A yacht ran into shipping channel Nav Aid ( 900 MM steel pile) with a bloke up the mast and no one in the cockpit . Vessel was under way with both sail and power going. Yacht came out worst. fortunately no injuries

    Surfers Paradise every Weekend………..

    I one was part of a crew that started to row a large boat across an Austrian lake.
    Half way across, the boat started taking water……….

    The “bailer'” was a kitchen table dust pan and a plastic bottle……..

    The lake was over 1000 feet deep……………

    And I was a non swimmer !!!

    Now you know where my white hair came from at the age of 18 !!
