That would be Captain Highriser to you, as I navigated down the mighty Murray River in about 2002. I cannot agree with Ratty. I did not like messing about in boats, especially a fairly non responsive to my steering commands houseboat. Go thataway, I instructed it via the wheel. Some minutes later, it would do so. One must plan ahead with boats.
I imagined lazily throwing a rope over a mooring post along the river bank. There were no such things. Instead I had to turn against the river current and then drive the boat full pelt into the river bank, hoping the nose would stick and I guess I did something with a rope then. No, I'll not be messing about in boats again.
PS, those jeans I am wearing look very ugly and unflattering. I will guess that they were a pair of R's hand me down jeans, only worn when doing messy things, like falling into the muddy Murray, almost.
