Rough Boating

There have been two boat fires in so many weeks in this area.

The person from the first fire woke up and ran through the flames to safety. He was taken to hospital, then released. He was very lucky indeed.   His boat totally burnt out but two locals, MP and PJ were able to re-float it after a weekend of hard work, tea drinking and head scratching.


The person on board the boat of the second fire wasn’t so lucky. His story has been all over the newspapers and news.  Sad times.


Then we have had all the water.  I have read stories of several people finding the rising water difficult.  Oxford is no exception – a boat has sunk.  The news and some pictures are here.

That is an eye-opener to say the least. Do you have any boating safety posts on your blog?

depends what you call boat safety and why you want to know. I would have thought a shipwrights ltd company would already know.
