  1. Trying to find the members that moor here. Psychic Surveyor? Is he one?? Anyone able to point me to messaging him please?
  2. And another for CraftInsure. Have you tried ringing them?
  3. Aren't you just the most cheerful chappy Dave!
  4. As everyone else does, I love reading these tales. Thanks very much for taking the time to share this with us.
  5. Thre are, of course, both narrow, 6' 10" and broad canals up to 14' wide. The Leeds & Liverpool, Calder & Hebble and Huudersfield Broad are wide beam and the Huddersfiels Narrow obviously narrow. Further south, narrow canals are much more common. In the north the canal/river navigations wer very much for commercial movement of aggregates, flor and grain and coal. Mostly wide beam. They really are a wonder of victorian engineering to read about. And there are a total of some 2000 miles available for navigation! Not bad methinks! All I amsure Alan will also eagerly confirm.I am aware he
  6. Not sure if this is the correct place for this but The Guardian have an interesting article on the problems disposing of old GRP boats. https://www.theguardian.com/environment/2020/aug/06/nautical-not-nice-how-fibreglass-boats-have-become-a-global-pollution-problem?fbclid=IwAR1uqOWz4Q0BeSfkdBW-REvw5C1b_423WUdYlBmT2pTxQiA_AWanIClqkWM
  7. Nay, not slow and steady, no sudden jerks. It really does work.
  8. I've been on 'Judiths' a couple of time. They are superb boats and so easy to handle. They are as steady as a rock bearing in mind the weight. Hold course beautifully. Thanks for the thread. Really enjoy reading stuff lke this!
  9. Magnificent boats were they not?
  10. Another way is not the seamans way but works, Just set off for a couple of yards, it will then be free!
  11. I tried a huge pile of conkers for a good while. Made not a jot of difference. I'd swear they loved them.
  12. Now then, mind is ticking, wonder if there is a connection with the recent speeding at Horning?
  13. I have often passed that tin heron! I always have a lunatic wish to have a bazooka to hand to destroy the bliddy thing! Totally off the wall I know but, somehow, my mind occasionally works like that. Really enjoyed reading all about your voyage and loved the photographs. Very well done and hope to see more in the future. Thanks very much.
  14. Chin up Paul, I too have had days like this recently and it really does make you boil over in rage. After a while you consider all a little more calmly and, yes, feel no better at all. I spent a good while putting together a few very carefully worded but bitter and critical and sent these off both by email and snail mail, Eventually these excrement holes do contact you in very syrupy manners and try and repair the situation. Oh no by jiminy! You must try harder than that I think and continue to bombard them with very pointed correspondence. It does not totally mend the situation but it really
  15. I saw today that the long moorings opposite the Bridge Inn are now open and free and power I think!
