You have to-be able to laugh at yourself before you can laugh at someone els ;-)

It’s easy to find fault. That's why theirs so many critics

I know a lot about a bit of stuff and a bit about a lot of stuff

Neat
Let me ask you one question. Is your money that good. Will it buy you forgiveness. Do you think that it could. I think you will find When your death takes its toll All the money you made Will never buy back your soul.

informative, now my vocabulary is extended and i know words i cant translate to my native tongue.

i like how the video starts with terms all boat users "should" know.
i don't know my starboard from the other one.

kids in this country are allowed to operate a boat from the age of 12 if it doesn't excel the speed of 8mph
or has more then 10HP and is under 23feet. sail boats have no age restriction only size.

adults don't need a license for anything under 10hp 50feet and 12mph
no lights needed if its not dark. no extinguisher. life vest not needed(dumb).

any numpty like me can have a boat and do what ever where ever.
love how lenient this place is when it comes to boating rules and regulations.

I will never understand the rule in Holland that you must have lifejackets onboard for everyone in the boat but you don’t have to wear them??

You dont need any form of floatation on what we describe as slow boats. Licensed crafts have more rules of wich im not to well known. All I know is if I get on my buddies 25hp zodiac ribb. I wear a jacket and hold on with my dear life.

I’ve fished quite a lot on Hollands Diep/Haringvliet, been check by the police 3 times and every time they checked that we either wore life jackets or at least had them on board.

Yeah thats a big water I recon your engine was over 10hp. Thus not conciderd a slow boat but a craft that needs a boating license and diffrent rules apply to them. Youll need the full lot on anything over 10hp or a certain speed

cracking bit of water that is tho mate. sad state of affair as of late few years. my boat's and boating skills ain't got nothing for the likes of that size, so i don't fish it even tho its really close by. why i said sad state of affairs is that our government has given a no catch limit permission to fish for a commercial food fishing / export company. the bream get slung of to fishing clubs across Europe to be "stockies" apparently. the rest gets smoked into kippers. pike, zander, perch, bream, carp. and even tho i don't fish it its of great concern to the rest of holland cause once that water gets depleted, and it will at this rate. itle mean fish stocks will dwindle on the connected rivers and the cormorants will leave and go even further inland, just to name 2 side effects. been a few lawsuits and they got favored towards the company "KLOP". numpties, numpties every where.

Ah Klop, the same family in the government who issue the commercial licences! I have seen the commercial Anglers so many times and they really do completely empty areas! Most of the small fish are ground up for fish meal.

There must be numptys in every country,here in Scotland the snp and Nicole sturgeon has let the salmon farms run away and the Wild stocks of salmon have dropped by over 70% because of parasites caught of the farmed salmon,there answer is to limit rod and line fishing for salmon,obviously they make more of the farmed Fish,
