  1. You could try this or other bits of clever code on the web >> https://smallpdf.com/pdf-to-jpg
  2. I remember as a kid having days out with a school friend who's parents had a very nice cruiser. We would be out on the Ouse from Bedford or St Neots, His dad's first ever advice about falling in was 'keep your mouth shut, we pump our toilets into the river'
  3. Snowflakes .... break the perceived rules and suffer the consequence. Mention the children and expect everyone to give in and let them do what they want. It's about time people that take the piss are dealt with properly - speaking from my highly un polished 20 year old boat .... Am I a wealthy ruiner of the canal system ?, I must have a harsh word with my self !!
  4. You will find it was Whiton Marina shipping in East West Marine boats (the later ones were named Whilton Marine) - 39 foot and 44 foot boats fitted in containers, the 57 foot boats were bought over non containerised.
  5. The ultra low emission zone and other projects in London are completely useless until they sort out the river traffic .... https://www.independent.co.uk/environment/air-pollution-river-thames-boats-transport-shipping-ferries-nitrogen-dioxide-sadiq-khan-a8411561.html
  6. Still looks dreadful ..... https://www.ebay.co.uk/itm/Narrow-Boat-Canal-liveaboard-Dutch-Barge-Houseboat-ECO-ELECTRIC-Narrowboat-PX/123671401680?hash=item1ccb63d4d0:g:P0cAAOSwu3dbt0NF
  7. Cat litter can be messy to then clear up - I use nappies (cheapest from lidl or aldi) - great for soaking up quite large puddles from the bilge etc
  8. Our boat - a 1999 reeves, is zinc and 2 packed. This was after a survey in 2015 where some pitting was discovered. The pits were puddle welded and then the zinc/2 pack was applied. We have recently purchased an isolation transformer. As your hull is in good condition, an IT may be a better investment - assuming you are connected to a power supply, and you can take it with you to your next boat.
  9. we were there tuesday and he was sat watching that bowl with the gold fish in it - the food was excellent as per our previous experience. we ate in the other part of the pub so we weren't having to watch the dog ...
  10. apparently they are also free 'They are free to use and on people’s doorstep.' wonderful, i can cancel my direct debit
  11. Sounds like these two would not be able to direct traffic let alone anything else. Folks who have a vague idea of boating would be good, not walking the towpath once a day ... we have enough towpath experts already.
  12. We have a Kabola HR300 and it is superb .... We did not fit it though (and subsequently pay the huge price for it), it was already installed when we bought the boat.
  13. It's a real shame that the face of Leamington from the canal is not a good one. The council have apparently finally realised this and are threatening to try and protect the canal side from overdevelopment and hopefully will clean it up a bit. The rest of the town is very nice to visit (over the river Leam) - well worth a walk into if you get the chance.
  14. I wonder how long it will be before Parry gets out the poor pot and starts asking for donations .... perhaps he had better cancel the second round of new logo stickers !
