  1. Tyres are not good fenders, if they get knocked off they sink (unless filled with foam) and then get sucked into another boats propeller. If you haven't tried to get a tyre off the prop you haven't lived😱
  2. It became common parlance after the 1995 act when the numbers multiplied, before that there were so few no one noticed them.
  3. This takes me back to my working days doing risk assessments. I would do an assessment and have crew disagree with me for whatever reason they felt like🤭
  4. That was true about 45 years ago did you type a 1 instead of a 4?
  5. BW_General_Canal_Bye-laws.pdfHaving just trolled through the BW by laws http://www.britishwaterways.co.uk/freedom-of-information/legal It appears that licences became mandatory after an amendment to the by laws in 1975 The op is mistaken in his recollection as to the dates🤭 I remember in 75 just after the licence came in not bothering much about it but a year later I had one.🥱 He must be at least 50 if that's the case as a licence has been needed since 1975 How time flies BW_General_Canal_Bye-laws.pdf
  6. Absolutely. I thought this last night but wasn't brave enough to post as I didn't want to get shouted at by AdeE telling me I was wrong when I wasn't. The fact that that gate is normally closed and opens without warning didn't help the couple.
  7. Seem to remember somewhere about the mid 70's was the first mutterings on licences. And yes I ignored them then 😱
  8. In your free charging world maybe not. We are talking public chargers not at home charging The RAC said the average cost per mile for someone limited only to rapid and ultra-rapid public chargers that are typically used at motorway services had risen to 18p, compared with 19p for petrol cars and 21p for diesel. https://www.theguardian.com/environment/2022/sep/26/cost-electric-car-charging-point-uk-public-charger-by-42-percent-invasion-ukraine
  9. Once charging bollards are in place I would expect the charging cost to be about the same as powering a diesel boat. Just like public EV chargers are now about the same cost per mile as petrol🤭
