    Winding 60ft near Long Itchington?

    Thanks everyone. In the end we wimped out and went to the Folly. However I will try winding below Bascote one day when we’re not so up against it time wise.
  2. We're taking a few friends out from Braunston tomorrow morning, staying out Saturday night and wanting to be back in Braunston by about 2pm on Sunday. Our normal 'night out' trip would be to the Folly at Napton but we've done that no end of times before and I'm trying to think of something more interesting. Therefore is there anywhere to wind a 60ft boat around Long Itchington (preferably Warwick direction) or is it a case of motoring all the way to Radford Semele before the first winding hole is found? We would like to moor fairly near to a pub on Saturday night without having to walk a mile down the towpath to reach one.

    boat id

    It’s Hardy. Been on puddle banks at Braunston for several years and now Tooleys have got it to restore. Edited to add: actually I may be wrong on the one in the picture being Hardy as they have another wooden motor as well I believe.

    Hydrus (I think) was up by the turn minus its cabin. Aplologies, I see you’ve already counted ‘Raven’

    It’s a reference to a quote from the film Monty Python and the Holy Grail. Wasn’t that funny then either.

    Annoying alarm.

    When we had this issue is was the temperature sender causing the buzzer to sound faintly.

    Docking need to get job done cheaply

    Unfortunately the travelling community take great offence to the term and I know of a few forums which have been threatened with legal action if they didn't remove the term from posts.

    where is this scene

    I think you can pretty much rule out anywhere on the Stroudwater or Thames and Severn. Doesn’t look like anywhere on those two canals that I can think of.

    Maplin to the wall, this can't happen

    BBC website says Maplin will continue trading through the Administration process. http://www.bbc.co.uk/news/business-43223175
