He said he had come from Holland and was trying to take a short cut to America by sailing down the Aire and Calder and the Leeds Liverpool canals

Pauine. Gosh another fan of this rhyme. Donovan set it to music but my own favourite version (it's on You Tube) is the one by Lucy Simon and her younger sister Carly Simon ( yes though one who sang You're So vain). Lucy wrote the music when she was 14 and the sisters had a hit with it in the early 1960s. It's a great song and once you have heard it you can't get it out of your head !

Ozy no we haven't had enough canal photos, they are much better than HGV's brum brum 10/4 good buddy.

Sounds like some people can see real people through computer screens - but still get it wrong!

Based on his story, I believe that sailor is lost. Put-putting along the cut is interesting, though.
