  1. Wow you did well. I actually enjoyed the fact I was in water (sort of) for most of them. My day started at 10.30 finished by 15.30 including a couple of breaks chatting and blackberry picking for a nice treat tomorrow. Moored now at Star City. Safely weed free.
  2. Good job Brian. Happy tramping. 👍
  3. I came from Pelsall. From Wolverhampton. The worst 5 days of my boating life. Over 4000 miles and I wish I'd never seen the Wyrley and Essington canal. I have never encountered so much weed for so long. In total 19 miles of the 23 I've done this week. 🙆‍♂ïļ
  4. If anyone knows of a guy called Martin moored at Longwood. About 60 long greying fair hair, with a long Platt. I'd like to thank him again for helping me with 6 of the 7 Rushall locks with his friend (name unknown) really such a pair of silver knights. Top geezas 👍
  5. Yeah. Its overheated and 300 yds behind me. ðŸ˜Ŧ🙄
  6. I'm about a mile away. I'll give it a go tomorrow now. It does look like the next 200 metres are the worst. There is also a fallen tree between me and the locks. It is passable, but means going through thicker weed to do so. Personally, I think it's as close to impassable than I have ever known. Tried that too. The build up at the front makes it impossible. In fact it's so thick all around the boat, despite an off shore wind, I havnt needed to tie up. 🙄
  7. Cheers Nick. I think a mile 1/2 😆 have vented at CaRT but 2 hours nothing. Having secured the boat and prepared the prop, I'm now walking to the locks to get an idea of what lays ahead.
  8. I am now WELL AND TRULY STUCK. The Tame Valley got me before Perry Bar locks. Has anyone any idea what I can do. I've taken 5 hours to cover 1 mile. Been in the weed hole 7 times. The front is ploughing up So much Cabomba Weed, that I can't push through if I had a clear prop. I've called CaRT so far 2 hours and nothing. I'm scratching my head for ideas.
  9. I'm actually coming in from the Wirley and Essington, so I know all about crap. ðŸ˜Ŧ
  10. Thanks guys. I would need to get off to walk doggie, and catch a train. So that may be an issue.
  11. How do you type that fast. ðŸĪŠ
  12. I'm looking for a safe secure overnight mooring around the camp hill flight. Any ideas or recommendations. ?
  13. I'm feeling a bit confused by all this solar elektrikery stuff, but I'll stick my oar in here. I have 2 arrays also, and at most times its the doggies. However, like as mentioned above, one controller takes president and t'other goes AWOL or float. In a nutshell though, I have been advised by an expert (un named of course) that my settings are OK. My 2 arrays are 400wts and 335Wts both into their own controller. As has been mentioned I concur, that this set up is indeed very handy for mooring along trees/buildings and their shading. So I say, go for it.
