    Braunston abandoned boat ?

    I thought that Mouse and Mole were built for working in the tunnel (Braunston) when it was closed for relining way back when. I have worked with one of then when it was used as a pusher tug for bridge and tunnel inspections with BWB. More here.

    Dog life jacket

    I too think that a handle is a must but the bulk of some is a worry.

    Dog life jacket

    What are your views on dog life jackets and what is the best to get. On Amazon they range in price from under a tenner to close to £80. Our dog is not a swimmer which is a little odd but there you go.

    Yarwoods Cabin Porthole

    Looking at some old, period, photos of Yarwood's built GU boats all the portholes have the same round head fittings as does Radiant to this day. I was told that all the porthole were fitted with nuts but to change the glass in the cabin porthole you would have to rip out part of the cabin lining. It doesn't make sense for the yard to use different fittings for different portholes on the same build.

    Yarwoods Cabin Porthole

    But not a Northwich porthole. The thing is Yarwoods seemed to use stuff that was unique to them or made by them while H&W got stuff off the shelf. The Northwich porthole is flat with an inner locking ring. This is from the Radiant. The small notch at about 11 & 5 o'clock are in the locking ring.
