  2. What is needed now is a movable width restriction at the A45 bridge just north of Braunston Junction, which is only unlocked when a wide boat passage is scheduled.

  3. That adds a new dimension to the question 'How much crap can you store on the roof?' Not only that, you will need to date stamp it with a best after date.

  9. It's all part of the rich tapestry of canal life... Walkers hate cyclists, cyclists hate walkers, anglers hate boaters and narrowboaters hate everyone including other types of boater! 🤣

  12. It will be a few years yet. Based on the picture above, Toyota have still got to develop seats, doors, windows, a roof and all the rest of the car. It won't be a practical solution till they do. That's the trouble with announcing a new technology too early. 😀 Those batteries look uncomfortable to sit on for long journeys and there doesn't seem to be any way to steer.

  13. Dont understand why stupid people keep insisting on dates. It will reopen when the statistics state that it is safe.

  14. Composting is kinder to the planet if that's what is actually done. If it's not, and dumping the uncomposted poo into waste bins means that they have to be treated as hazardous waste, which means the entire bin has to be buried in landfill instead of being sorted and recycled, this is definitely not kind to the planet. Saying "a better approach would be..." assumes that there *is* a better approach which avoids a poo-contaminated bin being buried. It's difficult to see what this could be, once the poo is mixed into the bin it's too late. So it's likely that

  25. Ah, you believed Nigel Farages lie did you. How would he be given access to confidential medical records? That's what he said, within an hour the Home Office had stated, yes, there were 12 new arrivals, but none tested positive.

  30. I think a lot of heads need banging together, or do you all work for BBC, ITV or Sky? What he has said is quite straightforward, and qualified with dates IF certain criteria are met. Unfortunately Covid apparently is not answering any phone calls or emails and refuses to publish a timetable or schedule for any infections. What action would you take to guarantee anything related to this pandemic? Don't bother coming back with what could have been done; hindsight is perfect sight. No-one can be able to foretell exactly what can be achieved let alone guarantee anything. Apart from very

  32. Retrospect? The only people who swore blind there wouldn't be a second or third wave were the government. Everyone else with half a brain and any understanding of viral transmission said endlessly there would be, especially the experts that Gove said we had no need of. Nor would anyone not innately corrupt have given vital jobs (such as track and trace) and huge sums of money to completely untrained people (but political supporters) with no medical knowledge. Nor would most people have spent a fortune setting up huge multibed "Nightingale" hospitals while being told, again endlessly, that ther

  35. Advice to the guy on the boat, close Facebook, dump Messenger and ignore the hate mail. Facebook is full of idiots who just like posting abuse - they don't actually do anything and are probably a few hundred miles away from you anyway. The only thing that matters is your contract with the previous owner, everything else will blow over and be old news, forgotten in a couple of weeks.

  38. I would love to see my boat never mind sleep over. I'm 70 very fit (I think) no known underlying conditions. I believe if I caught covid I would survive although I don't wish to test the theory. I comply with the rules quite happily because I would be mortified if I was the cause of infecting someone else. I suppose it all boils down to two types. Those with a social conscience and those who don't give a toss about anyone else.

  39. I suspect it will be end of March, hire companies are taking bookings for Easter. If schools are back 8 March, there's no point pretending you can maintain any kind of lockdown. The vaccines stop hospitals getting overwhelmed, the rate is coming down fast. Infection rates are irrelevant because you can't control them. It's only hospitalisation rates, and to a lesser extent death rates, that matter.

  48. Crumbs, I might be in trouble. Either my Mrs. Bee has left me and bought her own boat or I have another Mrs. Bee who has turned up from my past that I had forgotten about. If I disappear from this forum it will mean that they have met each other and I am to be found tied to a concrete block somewhere in the bottom of the River Severn.
