Speed­ing boats re­main a se­ri­ous prob­lem

Canal Boat - - Letters - AJ NB Fer­main

If you were the steerer of a nice shiny boat that passed me at ap­prox­i­mately 6.30am on 14th June in be­tween the short pound at Penkridge, Penkridge Lock and Prince­field bridge, at such a speed you had lost your wa­ter skier, then thank you, you man­aged to rip my fair­lead clean off, shear­ing the bolts en­tirely. I now have to re­pair paint­work, drill and tap bolt holes etc and re­place miss­ing fair­lead, I know there is al­ways con­cern of speed­ing boats, but this was ex­treme to say the least. My ad­vice to you, who­ever you may be is to sell your boat and get off the canal, you are not wanted. Sorry for the rant, but feel­ing miffed.
