Has anyone seen the wool boat - there are a few wool boats, but this one has balls of wool of different colours all over it- I last saw it near Fazeley


I dont know if its painted or vinyl- but there's so many colours it seemed a nightmare to keep it looking good- Anybody know?


Looking at the painter's website he looks to have done that one too http://www.canalboat...om/commissions/


Edited to add: Actually scrub that, on reading it he says that the wool boat is a vinyl wrap.

Looked at that but as in OP needs to be something that will talk to facetime, appreciate everyones effort it looks like i will have to get one of those little ipod classics apparently that has facetime on it


They don't as it needs to be a device running iOS. 


So you'll need to look at an iPod Touch, iPhone or iPad (both regular and mini).

This same scam is very common with cars advertised on Autotrader, etc.


As has been said it is easier to spot with a boat because they quite often list the boat as being somewhere completely inaccessible by water or sell a narrowboat complete with trailer.  They just cobble together text and pictures from different adverts.

Well after all the tooing and fooing if we could actually get the WB there or not due to size, it seems we won't be coming by boat at all sad.png


Dave installed the new set of batteries today, and although we knew we had battery issues which are now rectified; it also seems our inverter isn't working either.  We are currently hooked up direct to shore power and will remain so till we can either get the inverter reconditioned / repaired and reinstalled.


Apparently there is someone of this parish who reconditions / repairs Master-volt inverter's but I'm not really sure who that is?? Any ideas?


We may still grab a taxi and pop up for a bit to eat and a couple of tipples on Saturday evening.  What time is everyone meeting at the Folly on Saturday evening?




I'll be around on Piglet all weekend with a few friends so depending on which direction we decide to head in I may be able to give you a lift by boat.


I'll come and find you if we decided to head that way now I've figured out which fat boat yours is ;)

Yes C&RT have charitable status but they are not a charity in terms of reference such as The Red Cross or Oxfam.




This is exactly what some people seem to be having a problem understanding.
