To all Westcoast Boaters.
Just had a brilliant couple of days boating including a fantastic night with the big green bus at the pub. Only just though!

The publican is really angry at paddlers at the moment after an incident a few weeks back involving fights police and drugs! He basically doesn't want paddlers dealing or smoking dope around the pub, and isn't affraid to let you know the rules of his fair establishment. We convinced him that we would be on our best beahaviour and got down to drinking.

I guess this is a plee to all boaters: Please dont muck up our access to the only drinking hole in stumbling distance of the lake. Don't deal/take drugs on or near the premises, and dont punch any drunkin tourists!

Thats about it, happy boating!


Go the big green bus!
