I still don't think a lady of 82 should be attempting to control the warps of a steel vessel in what are testing locks for a young strong person. Her onset of dementia and lack of a life jacket make this more hazardous. The way in which he handled the boat resulting in numerous bangs could easily have set her scurrying across that coach roof and into to the drink. It makes good TV, but it is not really giving the image of inland boating the correct PR.

Lovely couple, lovely programme. A real shame about Pru, brings to mind the old saying " there but for the grace of god go I". Tim west has already said on Tv that this will be their last outing on  the boat, so a bit of lattitude wont go amiss.


Cheers

Praps it's me be being an old softy, but I find this programme desperately sad.
All that we take for granted can be lost in the blink of an eye.

Watched them all from the start and  feel so much for them as boating has been such a big part of their lives,but hope they can get on the water with their family maybe ?  Watching last nights edition It has been refreshing to see a series like this  where  it came across as natural and giving an insight  into their lives which I think has added to the enjoyment    Smile

Roy and Diane

Hope to see you on the river,

i am enjoying watching the serieis i dont think thst prunella is tow old to do the locks i think that for a lady of 82 she is fantastic for her age, and if i could walk and climb as well as she does evean at my young age i would be very happy i think she does very well to cope with her illness

I do not feel sorry for them at all. In fact it could be said that they are some sort of inspiration.
Despite their age and health issues they are still out there doing what they love.
Good for them.

I have enjoyed these programmes but was interested to note that Mr West was a darned site more careful to avoid contact when he was skippering his own boat than he has been with the ones they have hired during the series.
