HAZEL

Brilliant! Fortunately, my local canal boats travel very slowly-and most time is spent waiting at Locks!

Marleen, NL

They made their signs very original. I'm sure more people notice them.

Andy

It's almost like driving on the road without any lines painted on them.

Pat

I'd hope there wouldn't be any running in circles in the boat I was in because I get seasick very easily! ;)

Gemma Wiseman

Hilarious but serious sign! Love how it is presented as a shiny plaque rather than just paper!

EG CameraGirl , Canada

Ha! Very cute!

NatureFootstep

cool sign. :)

gerald

ah so brilliant

Lesley

those mariners were good at the rhymes, weren't they?!

genie

How in the world do you run your boat in circle....with difficulty :-) Great poetic sign. genie

Kathy

Good advice. That's exactly what I do!

Ewok

I think that "advice" is also good for two legged "fools".

Carver

The screaming and shouting comes naturally to me too. Good sign for the yacht basin.

TexWisGirl

thanks for explaining more about what it meant. reminds me of the flight approach training: red over white = you're alright; white over red = you're dead. something like that, anyway.

Inside Cambodia

That is a funny sign, sounds almost like a children's nursery rhyme.

islandrambles

love the signs, it is true mariners love to rhyme their rules...the terns below are excellent also.

Gail

Haha, yes, running in circles screaming would come naturally for me too. :) Such a quaint collection of sayings to help one remember safety.

Gaelyn

When I was a kid boating on the Illinois and Mississippi Rivers my Dad always said "Red right returning from the sea." Which I had to think hard about because we weren't very close to any sea. Cute sign.

Gattina

I would rather run away then in circles, lol ! I could get dizzy !

Eileen

I get seasick and can no imagine going round in circles. Cute post, Sallie!

diane

Does the screaming work? Do you have river rage like we have road rage?

ladyfi

Ha ha - how wonderful!

Annie

Funny advice !

Joe Todd

Love the post...

Margot

Fun sign. Somebody did a nice, creative job. It looks like its stamped into brass or some special metal. It shows a great sense of humor.

Pam:)

Hi Sallie, Love a sign written with a sense of humor. Good advice never harmed anyone.. hmm, or has it and we simply did not hear about it.

Halcyon

A very useful sign!

laura k

haha!!!
i think you might be able to run in very small circles on your boat!! just twirl!! but sit before u get too dizzy!

Rambling Woods

I like that sign...made me smile..
