  11. I thought that, but there's not a lot of room for a welder to get in there and fit a second tank , - unless you remove the engine first. Blackrose fitted a second tank to his wide beam, where there is much more room. If you search back through the forum you might find the photos.

  16. This is a good guide: https://www.amazon.co.uk/Going-Alone-Colin-Edmondson/dp/B0036TZQC4/ref=sr_1_4?ie=UTF8&qid=1534007427&sr=8-4&keywords=going+it+alone Not available on Amazon ATM but should be from other canal outlets e.g. http://www.boatshopbraunston.co.uk/home.html?V2.0.4

  18. Any search of what is written about canal engineers is often complicated by what has become accepted as opposed as to what actually was the truth. James Brindley and Thomas Telford frequently get much credit for achievements, where others contributed and deserve a certain recognition. John Duncombe is a case in point, whose contribution to the surveys of the Ellesmere Canal was considerable. He surveyed this canal before Jessop took charge and it was part of his survey that the aqueduct crossing at Pontcysyllyte was to be 125ft. Duncombe went onto to complete many more surveys for

  20. Yes, but you don't rely on the Amphour count when charging other than a rough indication. You do use the amps to tell you when the tail current is down below your 1-2 % or whatever you use ( I use 1amp per battery) to decide the batteries are full and then reset the amphour counter. Do not rely on any percentages of discharge because it has no idea of battery capacity when the batteries are more than a few cycles old, but amphours used and a percentage SOC from a smartgauge can be used to give you some idea how healthy or sick your batteries are.

  22. I agree, Oozells St. Loop must be avoided at all costs. Total mayhem at night with nobody about except for fagging security guards.

  23. Did you ever ask why there was a new engine waiting to be installed ? Had the old engine overheated and seized ? As more and more NBs take to the rivers to avoid the 'collapsing canal system' I fear these problems are going to become more frequent. The boat builders are building 'to a budget' (and using designs from many years ago before big engines became the norm) and are not building 'river boats' but canal boats. Due to the lack of rain there is little flow in the rivers at the moment - if we get some 'weather' in the next few weeks you will have a serious

  31. That section is headed "Is a boat part of a dwelling" rather than "Examples of when a boat becomes a separate domestic hereditament' Rating is rather dull - so I try to avoid it as much as possible but, as a valuer, do get dragged in occasionally. At its most pure, and it has been meddled with by various governments to suit the policies of the day, it is an annual tax on the occupation of land, according to its value. When Poll Tax was introduced, domestic rating was abandoned (but not business rates) and when Poll Tax was dropped, it was replace with Council Tax, Essentially C

  35. Thanks so much everybody, plenty of ideas for me to try. Must admit I hadn’t thought about magnets. I tried filling a plant pot with an old cricket stump in it with quick drying cement but it couldn’t cope with the breeze. Your display looks amazing Scholar Gypsy, thank you for sharing. ?
