  1. The disk images are on my website if you want them. arthurmarshall.co.uk/canalplanner.html . I thought I might as well make them available as they weren't being supported any more. No guarantee they'll work, but I know some people have got them going.
  2. The Acts represent the wishes of parliament a long time ago, when both the state of the waterways, their usage and the number of boats on them were very different. Parliament has better things to think about than us, so t&cs are a sensible way of updating the rules. And, as has been said many times, they are simply irrelevant to the majority of boaters who work within the spirit of the original Acts. Admittedly I've only been a boater for thirty years, both liveaboard and leisure, but I've never come across a problem with either BW or CRT yet.
  3. Version 6 (the last but one version) runs on Windows 10, and doesn't need the lookup authorisation.

  5. But this thread isn't about CCing, it's about what you do as a home moorer. There's only two reasons to have a mooring that I can see, one is to live on near your job, kid's school etc, and the other is to keep it somewhere while your home is somewhere else. The former won't travel much, that's not what it's for, and the latter will either be cruising round on holiday, or nipping out and back on short trips both of which are fine. The t&cs simply don't cause a problem in either case. As far as the complexity of CCing goes, it's really rather simple. You've got to satisfy the Bo
  6. I still use the old Canal Planner PC software as I don't need to be online for it. It's about as accurate as Canalplan.
  7. I emailed CRT about this when it first came in being a home moorer and leisure cruiser. The clock resets when your boat spends a night at it's mooring, so if there's your fsvourite pub you can go there every weekend if you like, as long as you go back home in the week. Generally, home moorers don't have time to go far or too many routes. If you're a leisure boater, and go off on holiday for a few weeks, why wouldn't you cruise? You might park up on your granny's EOG mooring for a week, I suppose, and in that case I'd just tell CRT.

  13. Out of interest, how long is your boat? I do suspect that makes a difference, as, obviously, does experience. It may also depend on how tickover operates, maybe. I'm not criticising here, I suspect you know more about boat handling than I do, just Looking for information.
  14. I'm on the Staffs&Worcs, pottering round the ring, really quiet here. Did Llangollen in August last year - nightmare! Usually do it early spring or late Autumn. This trip has been pretty good, not busy but everyone seems happy and friendly. No speeders apart from the odd canoe. Cyclists and fishermen all friendly too.
  15. That sort of makes sense. Except... I've been riding bikes for 59 years now (including 30 every now and then on towpaths), and the last time I fell off was 1966. I realise you've only got to do it once and on a road if hit by anything you're going to fall faster onto something hard. Still can't see the point on the towpath, any more than why cyclists wear masks (might stop them swallowing flies, I suppose).
