    Here you go. It is on the District Line, so in green. Can be altered for reverse, or any other boat layout. Jen 😁

    Thank you for telling us the situation. If you are able to help the boater give us more info we may at least eb able to suggest what he/her can do to help him/her self. As an example (hoping not trying to each grandma) the alternator is driven by a "rubber" belt and these go slack or break. When they do the alternator stops charging and if nothing is done almost at once the batteries go flat and then noting works. like wise if a single wire falls off the alternator or if the warning lamp blows most alternators will not start charging so again the batteries go flat. These things need checking and most boaters can do it themselves. if by chnace it is the warning lamp bulb we can even explain how to get the alternator to charge until a bulb can be sourced.

    It's all a bit vague. What sort of heating system(s) does the boat have. A dead alternator and faulty heating system don't make a dud boat. What else is wrong with it? You'll really have to volunteer some more information if you want any help. At the moment your communication skills seem like your biggest impediment.

    On the Coventry known as an "Atherstone Wedge." Mr. Fuller demonstrating the art going up as the Atherstone flight are notorious for being slow fillers.

    But if the gate wont open because the water is not finding a level then its kinder to push with the boat than to apply a big force to the balance beam, but only when going up 😀. At one of the difficult locks yesterday I was pushing like mad on the balance beam and noticed movement between the beam and mitre post, a push with the boat is much better. ..............Dave

    There is a possibility that I will be in Daventry next week. If it might help I could have a brief look. PM me if interested. Owning to another poster having a bad experience in the past, if the boater is female then a chaperone will be required. Bod

    What are your problems, we (as a forum) may be able to give guidance, for a solution. We will need questions answering, to the best of your ability, and photos really do help. What tools do you have? Bod

    You are probably aware of the electric "water taxi" based near Bathampton on the K & A. A very fine stainless hull, and seems to operate very reliably all day. Unfortunately the local swan was not impressed, and continuously used to chase it up and down the cut - until it got too close to the prop once!

    A boat is chock full of systems, frequently everything that a house has but smaller, more inaccessible, of rare and unusual design and on my boat no professional has had a hand in putting it all together. It also runs on 12 volt with a bit of 240 here and there , the heating is unusual - paraffin - and the engine is nearer the front than the back. Crammed into most boats is an ex automotive or plant engine and coupled to the propeller by a frequently poorly installed gearbox and various couplings. All this is contained in a hull that is impossible to inspect on the inside and not easy to interpret on the outside. Also in this challenging structure is enough gas to destroy a medium sized house, enough amps to melt big chunks of metal and enough diesel to make a very hot thing even hotter. Pity the poor old surveyor who inspects this expensive assemblage and misses a corroded jubilee clip or missing split pin that sinks the whole lot. As MrsM says, check as much as you can and it really is in our own interest to familiarise ourselves with our boats. There, That'll put everybody off buying a boat and make a bit more space on the cut.
