    Fair point for a few, does rather reduce the target set though.

    Hee Hee my wise old yoga teacher from Tibet said some very wise words to our group , in that it is those after us that are living in the now and we as we get older are living in the past what we perceive as bad manners or rudeness others it is there normal lifes , therefore we cannot judge those after us, as they live in a different world , there will be some on thIs forum who will be horrified to know that I eat with my elbows on the table and sometimes speak with my mouth full (THE HORROR). so do not judge on manners or etiquette because you came from a different time.

    Uh oh, now we have drifted to a steel boat doldrum... It's going to get ugly. Most of the steel boats near us are poo barges, working boats or cruise liners - most of which are more polite , manoeuvrable and generally aware than many yotties
    So time to develop an epoxy backed limpet I guess

    Last week, locking up at Fort Augustus with half a dozen hire cruisers and one private mobo. Lord of the Glens taking up much of the space at the top, only one berth with shore power free on the pontoon, we got it, mainly by oafish behaviour as described by the OP and some deft manouvreing. I was quite pleased with myself, particularly when some of the others had to go on to Kytra, several miles from the pub.

    Rest assured that there are various systems that work for non ferrous hulls, most post date the cockelshell limpets though.

    Next time the local chavs dump their old sofa over your fence I am sure that this sage advice will spring to mind in a instant
