  7. I am overwhelmed at the speedy & helpful advice! I took a few deep breaths & gave myself a stern talking to & then got on with it. 2 lovely lone boaters turned up just as I was inching towards the 1st lock - I offered to let them go through first as I would be slow & they oh so kindly offered to watch me go through alone to give moral support. This was just what I needed, many thanks to them. So I have slowly but surely moved myself through 3 locks & a couple of awkward swing bridges. Another bridge to do tomorrow but I've called it a day for today as I found a lovely

  8. I dunno, I suspect it's often - although of course not always - at least part of the case, and I don't think it's sexist to remark on it. Yes, often the woman 'doesn't want to steer' - but you have to ask why that is. It's very, very rare for it to be the other way round. It's more than possible that it's because she hasn't been encouraged, hasn't been allowed to develop the experience and confidence, or her confidence has taken a knock and hasn't been given the chance or encouragement to recover. I was once that woman, and it took a long time, a lot of willpower, actually going out an

  13. Methinks the order of calculations is wrong here. 1. Perform an energy audit. 2. Calculate how you will replace 120% of 1. If 2. is much less than 1. then keep re-jigging until they balance. Once they balance then (and only then)... 3. Choose battery bank approx three times the size of 1.

  21. . Yes me too. It's one of my (many) hobby horses how so many people see to regard 'having children' as a passport to preferential treatment. EG we need to CM here because the kids are in skool. I get people calling me in busy periods telling me I need to mend their broken boilers first ahead of all my other customers because 'we have young children'. Well no actually, elderly and/or ill people get priority from me. Clearly on the same planet as the NBTA!

  22. Hey Hilary! I have a lifejacket I bought for my JRT x mini dachshund puppy. He's now outgrown it. If this looks suitable, PM me and I'd be happy to sell it to you. It was worn once before he outgrew it. https://www.amazon.co.uk/gp/product/B006UQWVHS/ref=oh_aui_detailpage_o05_s00?ie=UTF8&psc=1

  24. I do not see any 'rudeness' in my post, so we will just have to differ, as an 'apology' will not be forthcoming. Maybe if you read FtS posts on the subject you will understand a little more about the background. Check out the 'author' of the piece quoted. It could almost be a re-run of 1984 where some are perceived to be 'more equal than others'. The 'Bargee Travellers Association' whole ethos seems to be supporting 'Bargee Non-Travellers' - look at the history.

  34. From the NBTA website - Background to the 'statement' : "...the council intends to criminalise, prosecute and evict Bargee Travellers from the river if they do not have a mooring or a residential mooring licence" As it only appears to be C&RT that are subject to allowing CC activities, the councils actions seem to be reasonable. If you want to CC (or not pay for a mooring) then move onto waters that allow you to do so. If you want a mooring, are prepared to pay for it but non are available, move onto waters with available moorings. It is not a 'right' to be able to insis

  37. Personally I wouldn't block the services even with the sign. It's not easy to clamber across a wet and slippy boat in icy conditions with a cassette in your hands.

  39. I a very surprised (but actually - maybe not) that the battery 'box' holding the 3 batteries passed the BSS. The BSS states : All batteries must be incapable of movement in excess of 10mm in any direction. NOTE – restraint against vertical movement is generally required. However batteries may be secured by means of a cradle or framework sufficient to ensure batteries remain secure under any condition up to 45˚ to the horizontal. Recesses, cradles or frameworks extending to half the height of the battery meet this allowance. There does not appear to be any restraints stopp
