  1. Hi guys, Just about to start putting a few more videos on our YouTube. If you've got any simple top tips you'd like popping in video form please pm me. Here's my first. Stop damage to your cratch cover Pointed this out to a customer once we'd repaired their cover and they were blown away. Wondered why nobody had told them before. Hence the new videos.
  2. Probably had about 15 or so.. mainly small stuff.. Still got a couple to see and some replacement bungees to drop off, but it didn't eat up as much time as we thought, hence why we can do it again this week. Hopefully that should of been the last of the big ones for a while.. It was terrible here, flooding left right and centre. The Canal actually joined up with the river!
  3. Don't think that link worked, Here's the text. LONG AND SHORT OF IT, FREE REPAIRS. After the worst of storm Ciara, many elderly, physically impaired, students or low income people, can't afford to replace their covers when they are storm damaged, leaving their boat less secure and colder. So for the rest of this week we are offering FREE small cover repairs, to anyone in this demographic who may be struggling, and have to decide between bills or safety/warmth. This shouldn't be happening, so we will try and get as many covers repaired this week as possible. All we ask is you call us to arrange and then bring the cover to us. Our company is at a size where we can just afford to give a little back, and that's what we intend to do. Please spread the word as we will financially and physically only be able to do this for about a week, while we are unable to get out onto the boats due to the conditions. After that the bad weather should start to decline and we can get back out on the road making new covers. Would also like to thank Midland fencing and aggregates who initially gave us the idea. If you like our page on facebook then more people will also see this post. SHARE, SHARE, SHARE LIKE, LIKE, LIKE. www.kinvercanopies.co.uk 01384 394469
  4. Hi Guys. WELL!!! That one was a wet one!!! Just to let you know we have the ability to run last weeks offer into this week to help those affected by bloody Dennis!!! I wont lie, it made me feel really happy last week being able to help. This forum really got the word out along with the Facebook narrowboat owners group. If anyone wants the link I think this is it. https://m.facebook.com/story.php?story_fbid=2812160008899803&id=168353263280504&sfnsn=mo&extid=APa7JjW5gWTjUjAl If anyone can add the link that joins this with last weeks post. I'd be grateful, as would anyone affected that needs help. I'm not sure how to do it.. Cheers Ian
  5. Once we've work out the size it would be about the same manufacturer time .
  6. We'll try anything...twice, First time may go wrong. It looks simple enough, wouldn't be my first choice but each to their own. In our experience the main reason zips fail are A.The original manufacture of the cover used a coloured thread, these rot as they have been bleached so they colour can be added. ( to fix only use natural or black). B. The zip is a coil zip which can't stand sideways tension that well.( to fix use Vislon Number 10 continues toothed zip) C.Its a small tooth size ( to fix use Vislon Number 10 continues toothed zip) D. It has been caught at gunwale height whilst cruising/in lock or by other boats collision. ( to fix tuck side of cratch onto top of gunwale when cruising, Build 4ft thick wall around your boat every time you moor!!)
  7. Yes we would, I'm actually working on a job for Braidbar boats at this very moment ( in between bashing the keyboard) .
  8. Well we do cover quite an area, Up to sort of Manchester down to just below the M4 corridor . Across into Wales and the other way to about Kettering... Give or take... A few jobs maybe a little further afield but the main body of work is within those guide lines. So you never know, we may cross paths at some point. Happy Cruising.
  9. And low income. We could just change the offer so Physically impaired, or elderly people are not included, would that make it better. Honestly, there's no pleasing some folk
  10. No, we just thought there may be a lot of emergency work that needed doing so offered to do it quickly and free for those who are the neediest, just take one less worry off their shoulders. The storm was terrible and we knew some folk would take a real battering. To be fair we were in two minds to run this offer or not because we thought some people may try to take advantage of it and abuse it. But we put our trust in human kind. I've also posted this morning that if possible we will run it for two weeks to allow people a chance to get a fix after the weather, but it was mainly intended for emergency storm damage that needed correcting ASAP that's why we said one week. But I can see where your scepticism may creep in. Now if you'd just like to sign up for our mailing list I'll keep you informed of all the other offers we have running ( By the way, we don't have a mailing list) .
  11. Because hopefully some nice neighbour in the boating world would help them, and maybe get it to us for a quick fix. maybe you could also volunteer to help. More love less hate dude. There's always one... and we've found them.
  12. Any likes or comments on this post is Keeping it alive and at the top of the board.. More the merrier. Already had a couple of folks on the phone arranging to get their zips stitched back down. Keep up the good work people, Share and post. Facebook likes are also going up which means the post on there will also get more views so hopefully we can help out more people. https://www.facebook.com/kinvercanopies/
