This is the rudder or our 1998 Liverpool boat if it helps you picture what goes on under the waterline. Looks to me like its bolted through.

Ha Ha !  Are they an alternative ACDC tribute act ?
Did they bring the Anvil as part of the stage act ?
Very original & entertaining I enjoyed watching this, the banjo player is a bit special.


No anvil unfortunately. They were a great laugh and really good musicians.

As it was the last night of their tour in the UK they signed the keyboard which will be auctioned for charity.

Haven't we been here before?

 

I'm sure EastEuropeanLady has posted a similarly poorly worded ad. on Ebay previously which has been discussed on here.

 

I think the thread ended up being deleted (and I cant locate it now), or is my recollection incorrect.

 

I was thinking exactly the same thing.

It's not an on/off thing.  Clicking that marks the forum as read, tick means nothing.

Put simply..

 

Braunston to London - Grand Junction Canal

Birmingham to Warwick - Warwick and Birmingham Canal

Warwick to Napton - Warwick and Napton Canal

 

Plus some other bits :)

 

The bit between Napton and Braunston technically is the Oxford Canal smile.png

 

Until the 1930's the only wide bit of the main line was Braunston to London.
