  1. Lol, I didn't even know they had a CWDF section. I have noticed that the other sides threads get discussed
  2. Did a quick search for that other place & found this. Are they now 1 & the same place as this?
  3. Like the title says, I've just noticed new bigger mooring signs have gone up on the Nene at Northampton between Southbridge & Beckets Park
  4. Is that the guy who's always getting his nob out?
  5. Thanks for all the replies
  6. We need a new cratch cover, the 13 year old PVC 1 is all falling apart. I was thinking of using AJ Canopies of Braunston, & getting their canvas type cover instead of PVC. Q. Are AJ Canopies any good? The missus wants windows. Q. How long are those windows likely to last? I've seen old ones where the clear plastic has discoloured & cracked.
  7. I got annoyed going up Foxton, no boats coming down & only 2 going up including us. The boat in front had 6 people in their late 20s or early 30s & was being helped by 4 volockies, basically all having a good old natter. Yet we (just 2 of us in our 40s) didn't get any help at all. The icing on the cake was when they told us to wait at the crossover bit until another boat came down even though there were no boats waiting to come down. Well we didn't wait & the rest of that day no more boats came past in the opposite direction even after we moored for the night.
  8. Is this the future of blacking? https://qz.com/india/1673557/indian-scientists-use-mango-leaf-to-prevent-ships-from-rusting/ Mango leaves: Indian scientists’ solution to a $2.5 trillion global shipping problemA team of Indian scientists has developed a compound from the leaf of the mango tree that can protect ships from rusting, which is far more efficient than synthetic paints while also being non-toxic and environment-friendly...
  9. I had 1 spring a leak after just over 2 years. I replaced it with the same because I'm crap at DIY. I've since decided the 1st 1 was faulty from the start. My whale gulper has been on 6 years & now leaks. I put a nappy on it, needs changing every 2 months.
  10. Hmm there is only plant I know of that needs 12 hours of lights, & if it doesn't get it it does its thing early resulting in a somewhat weak & not particularly satisfying experience, & it aint chilis!
  11. I've seen several otters on the River Nene. There's a pair that have a burrow(?) opposite Midsummer Meadows mooring.
  12. Finally managed to film the river Nene travelling downstream from Northampton to Peterborough on my narrowboat On Schedule! (filmed the reverse journey a few years ago) Time lapse at 30x faster than real life 52 minutes of video for 26 hours cruising No sound 5 seperate videos, here's the link to a YouTube playlist for all 5. https://www.youtube.com/playlist?list=PLEbtETsWfJ0L_7rrgtYYmxdGZCaTJD0Hv Link for each individual video Part 1. Northampton Marina to Washlands https://youtu.be/bmhA8Z08v_k Part 2. Northampton Washlands to just beyond Lower Wellingborough https://youtu.be/_j1jxOLB2-c Part 3.

  13. Wasn't us, he's lying. Currently on the Nene
  14. Lots of boats moving. We actually had a queue for the locks on the Nene, unheard of! Anyway, here's what I woke up to at Elton locks this morning on the Nene, just before 6am
  15. Very happy with the Nene. Just left Northampton Washlands
