This is why.

naseby

Over the past few days whilst we have been on the move, we have had people asking "why are the restrictions are on", and I should add the majority of these have been other boaters, who have taken no time to read any of the restriction notices on the boards or lock gates. I think this photograph says it all really. This is Naseby Reservoir and it is not the only one looking like this. Saddington Reservoir is the same as are others across the country. So if your a boater and your reading this, please read the restriction notices, they are there for you benefit and then you will understand. May I also say please stop moaning about the rain, because if we do not get more of the wet stuff, none of us will be moving anywhere because the canals will be shut.

What has bought on this Sunday rant your thinking? It is bought on by a couple I met this morning, who jokingly said "Thank goodness the rain has stopped, that orange thing in the sky is the sun I think". I almost lost it. It is sad to say that there are some who only think about themselves and their own movements on the system. It is not all about one boater, it is about all of us, continuously cruisers, those who work on the canal to try and make a living and those who are on moorings who want to wake up in the mornings on the straight and narrow and not leaning over with everything falling out of their cupboards.

Ok rant over. Have a Happy Sunday xx

  1. Hi Jo,
    Here here, I say!!! Bring on the rain. The trouble is all those boat owners who only travel for a few months in summer quite rightly want loads of sun and dry weather. We, on the other hand, just want to be able to cruise the system without worrying about water restrictions. We have enough trouble going where we want to in the winter with all the BW's stoppages! So let it rain, let it rain, let it rain!!!!
    Regards
    Irene
