    I totally agree, the guy was being a C-UNIT, don't matter what kind of boat it was.

    Looking at the hire boat mooring lines I'm guessing it's a LeBoat cruiser, they like those rough bright blue nylon lines. Mr Haywood has transgressed the Thames Navigation byelaws 29, 30(a), 30(b), 30(c) & 30(d) that require all masters to take appropriate action to avoid collision never mind the international regs.

    I doubt the EA would take any action so embarrassing the idiot on social media is the best answer and I shall do that, copy to the EA, IWA, CRT, RYA and LeBoat.

    What makes it even more amusing for me is the article he wrote in Canalboat last May

    Poor boatmanship is not the preserve of one particular type of Thames boater, personally have always found skippers and crews of tin slugs to be very well mannered and friendly folks, most will spare the time of day to have a natter.
    The few canal boats we have accommodated in RCC have usually been a great bunch , usually without the airs and graces some other boaters seem to aquire.

    Do wish they would raft up tho

    Was always a bit worried about asking to raft up on the outside with a metal job :P

    Err suspect it is impossible for any plastic boat to raft up in an elegant way onto any narrowboat and as for getting ashore.
    Was merely wondering if they might raft up together,pretty please, to leave space for other types of boats to get to river bank.

    No effort to stop whatsoever, presumably does the same in locks in order to stop. He does need bringing to book, had he hit me like that his long term health may be in doubt. Pratt.

    If the boat was indeed a hire boat,the impact most certainly would have caused damage, surely the hire boat company will be pursuing the narrowboat boat skipper for repair costs. ?
    Do love these new little dashcams.
