  3. Is it one of the places where the residents have whinged about moored boats running engines, making smoke etc? ETA Just read post #146!
  4. Or: you don't have to read too many stories of people 'getting their own back' emptying cassettes to hm think twice about them!
  5. I went to Ripple Infants and Junior Schools.................. ......................in Barking, Essex.
  6. Well, they all make a change from his being hit on his middle wicket by a cricket ball. 😃
  7. Just read a CaRT notice that the GU is closed between Thames Locks and the Hanwell Flight due to 'High Water Levels' Don't think i've seen that one before.
  8. Thanks for posting that Simon. It's a tad scary! Narrowboats aren't designed for that sort of thing but, to quote Marriot Edgar, it would appear that 'There were no wrecks and no one was drownded'. We went across the Wash, Boston to Wisbech, a few days before you in 2019. Four boats, one pilot and one apprentice pilot. The most difficult part being the 180° turn to face the incoming tide prior to mooring at Wisbech. I never feel comfortable when the boat is going sideways! I know the boat will come round but I feel it won't. Things weren't helped by one of our convoy gett
  9. What about the sidecarp?
  10. And even longer ago 'NB Holderness' wrote a blog about going out of Keadby to Hull. He quoted the lockie as saying "He'd never known a narrowboat turn left out of the lock before" But I think the writer (Tony?) used to work as a Humber pilot.
  11. The 'Minimal List' youtube people went out of Goole and turned left a while back. As for narrowboats and waves, perhaps someone who knows where it is could repost that video of the SPCC trip to the Medway where the weather took an unforecast turn for the worst off Southend?
