  12. Well, far be it from me to enter into the argument you seem to be finding so enjoyable but as I was 'there' in Tony's story from the outset if there is any 'CaRT bashing' in Tony's case, then I'm afraid it is CaRT fair and square inviting the 'bashing'. As I see it from the start CaRT had been looking for a target, someone to make an example of as a warning to the rest of us, as they previously did with Ralph Freeman of what some refer to as 'The Dark Side'. They were proved wrong in Ralph's case, too, and furthermore were then left with no alternative other than to change the wording of the

  13. I disagree. I know of several Enforcement Officers who do the job extremely efficiently, but that do it politely. No-one can say it is an easy job and there are no doubt some boaters that take umbrage, however the majority of boaters I know respond to a polite approach. Being treated as if you are dirt because you live on a boat together with a general attitude that you are lying is not I'd expect the way to influence either good behaviour or a favourable response from boaters.

  21. Ok. I may be naive but I enjoyed the Chilterns IWA meeting last night with Richard Parry. After his introductory talk, the question session did not degenerate into a "slanging match". Good for Chilterns IWA.

  26. Hello all this is my first post on here. I own valiant and as the updated list shows she is indeed in Rotherham and her year of build is also correct at 1959 by Hepworth's at paul. I've read a good bit of this tread and going back to the very beginning where it talks about wey I can throw some more info on her. She was indeed section 8ed and was taken to Goole from Nottingham during spring/summer of 2013. A friend of mine has since brought her and we used my barge valiant to tow her from Goole to Rotherham in September 2013. Also on our moorings we have noe and number 9 which are also Sheffiel

  31. So the Master degree in "The importance of water for shipping" the lock is 25 meter X 5 meter, the depts. in the lock is 2 meter, the difference in level from low to high is 2 meter. 25x5x2 = 250 ton the boat displace 50 ton. boat going up; there is 250 m2 of water in the lock, boat goes in and press out 50 ton, so 200 ton of water and 50 ton of boat. fill the lock, it is 2 meter high 25x5 meter = 250 ton of water to fill it boat goes out of the lock, 50 ton of water goes in so we used from the upper canal 300 ton of water. the lower canal have the same level as when the boat w

  34. This post made me smile.... I have just completed a year living on my boat. I was warned that I would make one or two mistakes, check this lot out. By the way, I live on a 70ft and cruise all year. No previous boating experience. You are in for a giggle with this lot!!! Firstly can I apologies whole heartedly to all those I have bumped into!! 1- burnt out alternator 2 - burnt out generator 3 - hit another boat 4 - sheared side hatch door off it's weld 5 - got rudder trapped in lock gates.... twice 6 - forgot to move forward off cill in the lock and boat got stuck.

  35. Niles, You seem to be missing an important piece of information that may be in this thread or may be in the other one about this subject. Tony references this in his post 189 above. CRT originally asked, and Tony agreed, that this case be dismissed in a procedural manner that would have left CRT responsible for costs. CRT later changed their mind and reneged on their written agreement to dismiss the case under the procedure that would have awarded costs to Tony, and then tried to have it dismissed under a different procedure that would have each party responsible for their own costs.

  40. I can't say I agree with you very often, but you are quite right this time around. Tony has every right to be as much of an in-your-face curmudgeon as he wants to be, and that particularly applies when an organization with endless resources and the authority of a quasi-government organization tries to take his home. Tony's attitude and personality determine how many friends he has, they don't determine his rights. No person should have to ask nicely to not have their rights infringed upon. As a matter of fact, it is those who are overtly confrontational with abusive authority that guar

  41. It was established long ago that Tony Dunkley is and was boating 'within the rules'. Do keep up. Personally I think if a body with the clout of CRT starts an action that could end with the removal of your home your are at the very least likely if not justified is being a belligerent and confrontational. And you are wrong. 'In a narrow legal sense' they were not justified in seeking a court order. That much is clear whatever you think of his style. Nigel Moore's posts (and potential legal support in court) completely support and vindicate his position. It seems disingenuou

  44. I was intrigued by the bit about twisted leading edge rudders in Dalslandia's post and was doing a bit of looking up.(incidentally thank you for an extremely interesting post) I am unsure if it is relevant to the low thrust and slow speeds of canal boats...I was also refreshing my memory about Schilling rudders, Kort nozzles and Kitchen rudders, all very interesting and excellent engineering but I wonder how easy they are to free up from the remains of an old mattress round a prop, while your head is down a weed hatch. The Schilling looks more plausible for our shallow and often rubbish l
