No room for rude­ness

Canal Boat - - Letters -

I’VE BEEN A boater for over three years now. We en­joy all of what boating is about, the wildlife, the peace and tran­quil­lity, but there is a very small group of peo­ple who don’t un­der­stand or care – and it’s not al­ways hired com­pany boats that go against the grain (though it was on this par­tic­u­lar oc­ca­sion).

We were in Penkridge a cou­ple of weeks ago and a hired boat with lads on was across the canal. We went to help and got abuse from one of lads – he was also swear­ing at other boaters.

I don’t think we should put up with peo­ple like that on our canals. The com­pa­nies shouldn’t hire boats out to peo­ple who aren’t go­ing to stick to our rules which are laid down for all of us to use.

Please can boat firms con­sider who they let loose on our won­der­ful canals so we can all en­joy them?
