    Default Re: Why do we bother

    We lived on board on the Thames for a couple of seasons in our reasonably posh narrowboat that looks a tad like a submarine. Over enforcement seemed to be a problem even then, just before councils started employing jumped up car clampers. The slum landlord boats, crazy cave boating divorcees and battle of the beanfield veterans have little to lose and wont be deterred by fines as they have no address. Henley and Maidenhead struck about the right balance, easy to pay, not deliberately punative and somebody says hello. Turning the Thames into a watery version of the on the spot fine unless you install this broken mobile app CCTV panopticon that is life on land is a pity, but inevitable I guess.

    Seeing the skipper of the square rigged Humber keel Daybreak sailing his tender back to an island at Cliveden in midsummer was when I became hopelessly obsessive about boating. The following year we went there involved more noisy generators, leeches and swarms of ants but that's easier to forget.
