    I'm fairly sure a week would be seen as prolonging the pleasure a bit too long.

    We had to PTS our 14 year old dog at very short notice when he lost hind leg mobility over 2-3 hours. I hope and pray that assisted suicide in UK gets sorted ASAP as I have seen too many prolonged and painful "palliative deaths". That is all.

    Boat fiddlers again.

    Was on a club RIB dive today, standard routine, half in half out.

    I dived in the first wave then took the helm, following the divers on their drift. I noticed that the boat wasn't handling as expected, one of the others on board decided to put the engine into neutral, 10 minutes later and I caught one of the others grabbing hold of the gear lever, so I stood up and walked away from the helm, he immediately apologised.

    Another 10 minutes and I saw the first guy grabbing the control out of the corner of my eye and managed to twat him on the knuckles.

    Back in the harbour and I pulled up alongside the slipway to unload, engine in neutral as the wind was blowing us onto the side of the slip and someone was tying off the stern. A hand reached over and put the engine into gear, nearly garrotting the bloke tying off.

    This is not unusual with the club members, have even had them messing around with my boat, moving fenders, changing plotter settings etc. Will have to have words with the training/boat officer.

    You are more patient and polite than me. Children need discipline and naughty words and threats of a smack would have been order of the day.

    Really quite worrying.

    Only people who are properly trained (or under training) should be allowed to handle the boat especially with divers in the water. I bet most of the meddlers have no idea about the potential consequences of their actions. If it were my boat, I might be inclined to prevent people who have a history of meddling from using it - they will learn quickly or get no dives.
