When I joined I was under the impression that the forum was for boaters to communicate and share knowledge. Not to ridicule and insult members. I do not need telling that I am the not the brightest person living on a boat. I admit it that I have made cock ups, ( lot's )and usually laugh a my mistakes. So I don't need someone who is obviously perfect and never has a fallen souffle or ruined someone dining experience telling the forum that I am a bit dim. It seems that at some time I have proba

Hi there! This is probably the wrong place to write this but I'll go ahead anyway. We've bought a 37' narrowboat with an Ellis boiler installed. We've not even tried to use it in the last year but would love to get it up and running. A man very kindly sent us an instruction manual but I can't make head nor tale of it. Does anyone know of anyone working in the Gloucester area or prepared to travel there who would be able to service and then advise on use of the system? I await the hundreds of

When it comes to web data extractor, you may be more familiar with import.io, mozenda or other tools. but now, at this moment, it’s time for you to experience Octoparse, a totally free and powerful software. It would only charge for a little bit when you use their cloud servers to help you extract web data, and pr

Hi All. Iv'e just joined the forum as a new member. Having just retired I am thinking of things to do in my retirement and having had several enjoyable holidays on narrow boats its one of my options. My other interests are classic motorcycles, classic cars and anything old that has an engine and I often by up old vehicle parts to sell or swop for things I need. I live about 10 miles from the Bridgwater Taunton Canal and I often fish and cycle there with my wife or son. I intend to follow the for
I think that as well as cruises it will be interesting to keep a record of work done to my boat. I will see if my husband can do something better than place a link when I get home but as I always like to do things as soon as I think of them here is a link to his latest efforts on my behalf: https://zenflautist.wordpress.com/2016/03/15/how-to-fix-a-sheared-bleed-valve/
Not going to be many words on this blog, I am not a wordsmith and anyway, a picture says a thousand words. It will be good to be able to come back here to remember and relive our experiences. Yesterday was the first cruise with Sale Cruising Club and it was a glorious day, the weather was perfect, couldn't have been better. Anyway, we are planning to do some time lapse photography to give us something to look back at. Here is yesterday's short cruise.

Hi I've been looking to buy a new narrow boat and have spent a lot of time reading up and looking at boats and builders, They all differ greatly and i suppose you have to go with your gut instinct in the end with a builder you consider the quality, design and price meet your requirements However what puzzles me is if its a custom built boat, how can they fix the price at day one. My final design and specification may change as the boat evolves though each build stage. What happens if i change m
Hi All, I am looking to get a new wide beam built for live aboard purposes. I have had a hull built for me before, and I did my own fit out, this time I am looking to get the hull and fit out done. It has been a while since I was on the boating circuit and was looking to see if anyone could recommend good boat builders, and those that should be avoided. Many thanks.
I have to buy new liesure batteries for my boat at the moment they are 6 volt 220 amp and there are four of them. I can buy 12 volt 120 amp batteries cheaper than the 6 volt will they do the same job. Any help appreciated.
Have you ever noticed how people who own old boats suffer due to boat covers? Not that boat covers don't serve a purpose or that they're not well crafted or even attractive. I'm sure some companies make really great pram covers and I know many people who love the idea of having one (you can shelter from the rain while driving your boat, after all).
Even so, I confess to being totally puzzled why boat builders used to make boats with widely exposed areas of the stern at the mercy of torrentia
