  1. Actually I'd disagree. Mooring at landcroft Park by the mile post is a lovely spot. I moored there for a week and it was really nice.
  2. Hmm yeah don't fancy a shotgun encounter
  3. Yes those wonderful summer evenings are amazing on the river even in towns or villages. My first boating experience and mooring was on the river so it feels like home. Determination helps when trying to Moor on the river. My collie will jump most gaps, never uses the boarding plank unless the rarity of a tired sheepdog occurs lol Ive spent a night at that pontoon by the Droitwich once, it was a good stop but missing the laying out on the grass factor. Will probably give up on the Severn idea and wait till after exams and treat myself to a trip on the Avon

  5. Yes I still have Rose of York and it probably would have been us in Kiddy this time last year. If we were in an odd place (by the flats round the bend from sainsburys) I would most likely have been doing my floor. If by the lock near the watermill, that would have been before the floor when I was still fitting the kitchen. I Remember going on walks to get away from DIY frequently Poor people with babies too lol
  6. Just realised I should have posted this on the social/banter section Out of practice
  7. I Can't think of anywhere I've seen either really. It's most likely impossible but I too just wondered if someone had managed it.
  8. Forgive my absence, no excuses I just haven't been on for a while. Probably not encountered anything boat related for a while as we're currently in a marina while I finish at university I. have been occasionally active on the Facebook group Marina-itus has set in terribly so can't wait for the end of term to go anywhere. I think our plan is to head East to Nottingham to see friends and maybe onto Lincoln to see family Not much to report really. Marina life is boring but there is a nice community here and mainly hire boaters about. The main bad thing here is blooming gulls driving everyone demented before they even have babies. Amazingly little has broken or gone wrong in the last year *touches wood* except for a slight gas leak which was fixed swiftly. Hope you have all been well and not got into too much mischief in my absence
  9. Has any one had any success mooring on the Severn between Stourport and Worcester away from pubs or locks? Even if it requires a boarding plank. I want to go for a trip and stop on the river for a night in the middle of no where (well as best as you can in the area). One of my favourite nights since boating was mooring on the Soar and I'd love to spend a night by the river again
  10. I have a few dotted around the boat, they do a good job :-)
  11. A fan that doesn't run off my batteries would be good ;-)
  12. I think it was more likely the loch Ness monster than a salmon that size
  13. Dolphins have been seen in Worcester years ago
  14. Pretty certain I saw a seal jumping out the water between Lincomb and Holt lock on the river severn today. Some huge leapt out and then the splash as it landed back in was massive. It was about 10 boat lengths in front so I couldn't see what it was except it was pale grey and about the size if the body of a small cow. I know there was a seal that far up a few years ago. Has there been any sitings since?
  15. Its an air blower being used mixed with a strimmer cutting with the grass flying into the water. The CRT workmen have been cussing for the last two weeks. Its not the CRT themselves, they subcontract the grass cutting out to a company that just doesn't get that the grass should not go in the water. Often people don't engage their brains to consequences of their actions beyond what effects them directly. We had to pull over twice once at Stourport and a second time at Kidderminster the day it had been cut. If only I could have caught them in the act and mentioned why grass shouldn't go in. At Stourport an old time boater said "nah it wont be grass, grass doesn't get caught" but he took his words back as a good couple of hand fulls were pulled out
