  23. This is the one cut down near us, someone set a plant in the hollow centre. I have a sucker from the root of the one cut down in the village, whether it will be resistant who knows, I can but try. All the others succumb when they get about 20 foot tall.

  26. Surely we just need to build more canals to keep up with the expanding numbers of boats?

  29. Thanks @Paringa - for some reason the EA don't seem to have shared this information with me, despite the eight hundred quid I give them every year... I could have looked pretty stupid turning up at a water point, as I have done for the last thirty years, and finding no hose, or not being able to use the collapsible one I carry for emergencies. There are approximately 15,000 boats registered for use on the upper Thames, if each one now has to carry its own, special, 7m hose, that creates a requirement for an additional 105km of plastic hose (mostly to be used once or twice a year)

  31. It really isn't anything to worry about. Boating isn't rocket science. Just take it slow. If you're not sure, or worried, about locks, find somewhere to moor up near one and go and watch people come through, offer to help and ask for advice. Everyone was a beginner once, everyone has made mistakes, and we've all lived through them. The crucial bit is to take it slow, and don't let anyone rush you. Most of the rest is common sense and courtesy. Steering feels weird when you start as, unlike a car, you're not steering by moving the front of the boat, but by moving the back end. Bit l

  43. In theory yes, it probably could happen with repeated exposure. In practice, no. Especially if you rinse it off afterwards.

  44. That was exactly the proposal in the 1995 Act at the Bill stage. A handful of people objected at the Committee stage on the basis that there were some owners who cruised steadily around the system and who therefore had no need of a permanent base. BW Solicitor Jeremy Duffey was so terrified that the Bill might be lost and he cobbled together the idea of the 'continuous cruiser', more or less overnight. We told him that he was making a rod for his own back as he didn't come with any definition of what that might mean, but he said they'd sort that out later! The rest is history, as they say.

  46. God of thunder only strikes widebeam boats moored in wrong place. Thats why there are now none between braunston and onley prison marina or whatever its called. Petitions are out for Zeus to up his game on the Grand Union.

  49. Why is the normal double check valve as fitted to many outside taps not sufficient ? seems complete overkill to me and as others have suggested quite easy to circumvent. Nanny state strikes again....
