Is This Safe?
Believe it or not boaters are in general no different from the rest of society. We have our foibles as any group does. Some tend to demonise those who do not share their views. When this happens I think of a song from Oklahoma!- The farmer and the cowman should be friends. I am trying to avoid making stereotypical remarks but there is one class of boat which I feel brings more than its fair share of problems to the canals - the day boat. These attract celebration parties of some kind and this often involves alcohol. The boats are small and light and can perform manoeuvres beyond the performance of other canal users, the implication of which is not understood by the day cruiser.
