    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.

    Cardboard Boats

    Garth Allen does ring a bell. Have just popped into the garage and dug out my finished ones of President and Northwich plus a 'work in progress' which I think was meant to turn out to be Redshank or Greenshank whichever the motor is (the butty as-yet un-started).

    Cardboard Boats

    I don't think they are Scale Scenes kits. They certainly look like the ones of President and Northwich that I have made in the past although I can't remember the manufacturer (it may turn out to be Scale Scenes after all). I'll try to dig them out as I certainly have the packaging in a box of bits and I remember seeing it not too long ago.

    Waterside Moorings

    If that's what you do for fun I'd hate to see what you do when you're serious! I know it isn't what you did but it really annoys me when people spend their time constantly sending FOI requests to government departments, councils, trusts, etc. in an attempt to, as far as I can tell, find some nugget of 'scandal' to produce an "oh my god, look what they're up to, it's a conspiracy/cover-up/outrage" story with which to share with the internet. Anyway, moan over.

    CRT boat seizures in Yorkshire

    It looks like one of the old Healings grain barges from Tekewsbury.

    Stoke Bruerne winding

    60’ is easy below the 3rd lock down. I’ve looked at winding in the long pound but have always chickend out!

    Probably the best picture I've taken of Trevor and Corona. If you want a copy without my name in the bottom corner just let me know. Corona - Braunston Historic Boats 2013 by Ian, on Flickr
  15. I believe Yeoford has, although when it was fitted I do not know.
