    Default red diesel tax

    whilst any new tax is anethema to any one, on a selfish note wouldnt it mean a return to the days of sailing not motoring and anchorages empty of those not prepared or capable of doing so

    I'm not "capable" of sailing anywhere, my boat has no sails.

    I think this is a memeber of the sailing fraternity who does not count us motorboaters amongst his friends.

    Not that I needed and excuse, but attittudes like his just encourage me to use the boat more and more. Why revel in other displeasure, you nasty little toad...

    Agreed, I always take it very slow near raggies, but the likes of him make me feel like burning some fuel just for fun. [img]/forums/images/graemlins/grin.gif[/img]

    It's people with attitudes like him that caused this tax hike. If we had presented a united front like the aviators this wouldn't have happened.

    Just love the way he makes a sweeping statement that implies all motorboaters don't know how to anchor.

    you mean like lifeboats and rescue craft?

    shame you dont give your boat name and location?

    maybe your not capable of doing so.

    I agree - its not a funny post, and I'm a raggie. But I dont think the "united front" bit would have made the slightest difference. We were always going to be forced into the EU tax straightjacket - the original deal was only a temporary concession. And how can you justify tax on road transport diesel on which we depend, and not on someone's yacht?
