  1. Dunno. Don't think so, but............ Why the Andy's Cross flying from the flagpole?
  2. From the very bottom? Well, there's a first time for everything!
  3. Yes, Canada goslings are very sweet. But they grow up to be 'orrible adult Canada geese. Fyling sh1t machines and not even good eating (or so I am told)

  6. Then why did you ask "does anyone know if there is any compensation I can get from CRT"? I'm wondering that too. Advice is freely given here but it is also a discussion forum.
  7. Why do you feel you deserve compensation?
  8. I'd like to post some pics in this section but they are, apparently, too big (big in a megabyte sense that is) Is there a way around this?
  9. Good Gawd! That boat is just 'orrible. (If it had a mother she would be the only person that could love it)

  11. They're quite good at turning locks in front of you too.
  12. And some hirers come from ex-working boat families. I was on the boat at our mooring last week. I'd finished the job I wanted to do and it was a nice afternoon so I went for a walk up the flight, taking a windlass as you do. A couple on a hire boat were happy for me to set ahead and we got talking. The woman said her father used to be a working boatman. "Oh, where?" I asked "Braunston. Then he went to Anderton for orders" she replied. "As in the book?" "Yes!" she said, her face lighting up. "That's my dad, Tom Foxton!" She said he was in his eighties, still going strong and would be dead chuffed that someone recognised the title. I was able to put my hand on my copy straight away when I got back to 'RW'.
