Re: Don't Pay The Ferryman...

Great to hear it has been settled! (A bird in the hand etc etc ......). I have been following this thread and cheering from the sidelines.
All the more reason now for you to celebrate this Christmas!

It's been lovely to watch all the people stepping up and helping a fellow man in a tough situation.

Re: Don't Pay The Ferryman ...

I'm glad you're getting paid Boatman, but I wish the people who tried to scam you got some sort of punishment. I suppose life will dole that out to them in due course.

Thanks Cormorant...
As to the rest I think the bad karma they've brought down on themselves is more than enough... doubt they had an inkling as to the backlash and possible consequences in what they now may realise is really a world wide village know'n as The Cruising Community...
far reaching friendships just a sail away...
