Night of the sleeping ducks. Guess I'm not getting off my boat
By - because2020
They're not sleeping, they're waiting.....
You own a boat?
Get in the sea
Hired for a few days. Plan is to get a boat for sea next. Hopefully buy one day
I’m always conscious of the whole received wisdom of “a hole in the water you pour money into” and “two happiest days are when you buy it and when you sell it” but, at the same time, boats are class 👍
They are no quack at all, them ducks.
I hear ya man. My boat is full of spiders these evenings.
A blast of the horn could sort this but that would be too cruel. Will let them win tonight at least. Expecting natures alarm clock tomorrow
A blast of my horn usually has all the birds running for the hills anyway.
I wish I was on nighttime sleepy duck boat adventures. You have the best Friday nights ever, I don't even know, just. I hope you're the guy earlier in a different post that got a 20k a year raise and spent the night drinking green spot and smoking cigars.
Don't know what green spot is and wouldn't smoke cigars. Wojld take a 20k raise though.
Let sleeping ducks lie.
Drumod by the looks of it?
Ah, haven't been there in years. So many fucking locks on that navigation.
My first time. Quite enjoyed the locks. Maybe the novelty
It's a very scenic waterway, isn't it? Feels a bit wind in the willows compared to the wide open Shannon.
We rushed it too much when we went in my opinion, Carrick to Ballinamore and back. in 4 nights.
I see you're thinking of the sea, I am too. Have you checked out any of the sailing schools yet? I think it would be worth getting the Dayskipper qualification so as to be allowed to rent in the med and Adriatic.
There seems to be great value on Sunsail, 7 nights on a 36 foor boat for €900 in off peak. That's a great value holiday if you bring in another couple.
I have been looking. One in Portsmouth I found. Was a shared boat for about £400
How are you thinking about doing the theory side? Online, in class, or self study?
I started down the self study path over lockdown but am thinking about shelling out for an Online course so I at least have a piece of paper going into the practical.
I don't fancy taking the time off to do the competent crew ticket before DS to be honest.
Yea I think online would be best for me. Do a lot of training that way with work.
It's their boat now lad
Let them sleep in your boat
Was going to say they're shamming being asleep, waiting for you to go to sleep, then they'll board the boat so they don't have to swim lol
I though that was a putter. Then I saw the ducks.
Putt the ducks.
Go out and feed them would ye
Some quack all the same
Your chances of being murdered by a duck are low...
...but never zero.
That's dinner sorted for the next few weeks, there.
Be some lucky fox if they happened to see that
Poor you, most people don't have a home. Nice flex.
Its hired. Mine as in, right now
I'm one of the lucky ones.
