  2. Swing Bridges

    The simplest way round this would be to spray the bridge rails with river water, when ever the temperature gets too high. Not a technically difficult task, easy to impliment and shouldn't be too expensive., and since the water came out of the river in the first place no polution problem..

  7. It was the cars crashed on the redways, that were more worrying, I came across a few motorbikes being ridden on redways, when I lived there (1988 -1999). (Redways = walking /cycle/ horses, paths )
  8. Are You Average?

    Never sent a text, only ever recieve them from the phone company when I've used the phone. Have only used a mobile phone maybe half a dozen times in my life. There is a Mobile phone mast on the back of Horning sailing clubs race control box, and I believe another near the New Inn. But they I believe are Vodaphone...
  9. Single Parent Hiring Boats

    Since most of the bigger boats have bow thrusters, I would have thought hiring solo on a bigger boat would be no problem as you can bring them along side to a dead stop quite easily before heading for the ropes...

  13. Mooring Technique

    I've never been to my moorings when there has been anyone around on that side of the river....
  14. Flying Bathtub

    in the UK with him on board it's a piloted needing a Licence, Weight would decide whether is a microlight or full licence. If he were not onboard then he would need a permit for flying a large Model aircraft over 20Kg. If it's over 150Kg then you are back in aircraft rules
  15. Mooring Technique

    Although my mooring has side telegraph poles at the rivers edge, I always go in bow first, as not only do I have to take account of which ever way the wind is going, But I have to take account of which way the tide is going too.. I tried going is stern first once or twice but life is too short for all the messing around when you get it wrong.
