  1. Not quite. Phase 1a - Stonehouse to Brimscombe (Stroudwater and T&S) Phase 1b - Saul to Stonehouse (Stroudwater) Phase 2 - Lechlade to South Cerney (T&S) Phase 3 - Brimscombe to South Cerney (T&S) Phase 1 was originally for the Saul to Brimscombe section but was then split into two. Apologies, posted the before reading your post properly again but will leave it as others might benefit.
  2. Living 10 miles from Harwich we regularly take the ferry to the Netherlands, ok to the Hook and not Vlissingen but it was good to watch. What bugged me was the location of the single track bridges at 4:40. Turns out after looking at old maps that they were the approaches to the now long gone Parkeston Quay West station, the area now having been reclaimed and just hardstanding for the port. You learn something new every day! The boats are a bit larger now though! https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/MV_Stena_Britannica
  3. No boat comes up with the number 55422. Stick the name into this and it should tell you what the number should be https://canalplan.uk/boats/boats.php
  4. Nothing with that name appears on the boat listing on Canalplan. Well it does, but that's a 22ft Freeman on the Thames.
  5. I believe it’s Bletchley and Bordesley, two of Jules Fuels boats.
  6. It isn’t, that’s a different boat entirely. A friend of mine owned the ex-RN one and it had all its submarine bits removed years ago. edit: I can see now that you weren’t saying that the Leeds one was the same as the old RN boat.
  7. I might have a bash at modelling this now I’ve been furloughed. Probably will only get as far as scribbling bits down on a bit of paper though!
  8. It wasn’t. He used a propeller on the Great Britain after watching a demonstration of another boat using one.
  9. We went to the exhibition held at the NEC last November and bumped into someone we know from boating. We discussed much the same thing.
  10. A few years ago (actually it appears it was 6 years ago!) I asked the question about some CAD plans I have which were deemed to come from the plans mentioned by others above. Here's the discussion about them
  11. When I bought the large Northwich plans a few years ago I did get them scanned so have them as a pdf. Can’t remember what the quality is like now however.
  12. This post cannot be displayed because it is in a forum which requires at least 10 posts to view.
