  1. The boat that caused all the damage at Meadow Lane lock was a large Cruiser called "STEALTH", the owner Tim Jones is a complete idiot, I've known of him for years, he used to work at McDonald's on Ratcliffe road telling everyone he was "head of maintenance", where he was actually employed as the cleaner, he was last seen heading towards Sawley at considerable speed apparently.
  2. After being given an astronomical renewal quote from Towergate Mardon I now insure with Nautical marine services, very easy to deal with and all done over the phone
  3. try attaching a flexible pipe to it, then blowing down it, have someone inside listening for bubbles.

    So whats going to be the best alternative now Comastic is no longer available ?
  5. yes Matty, someone knocked on my boat at 7.10 am last Friday wanting to go through, even though it was still just in the red, now mooored where you were.
  6. If you look on google maps again, where the footbridge is over the cut, there's a path across the fields to the main road, on the other side of the road is another car park. Generally the pub is OK, but parking is limited at busy times.
  7. I'm not sure where your friends intend to park ?, but there's parking at the end of the Zouch cut just before it goes under the bridge and rejoins the main river, this is on the same side as the towpath.
  8. There's quite a few places where you can wind a 62 footer along that stretch, If you plan to meet your friends in Zouch you can travel towards Loughborough and wind where the backwater is, then travel back to Zouch then turn below Zouch lock, that way your friends get to do a lock both ways
  9. The best mooring for visiting the city ground would be outside the county hall ,then you can just walk over the road to the ground ,after visiting the world famous Trent bridge inn ,it might be a idea to chain your boat to a mooring ring as late night revellers have been known to to untie boats at night.
  10. I suspect that after yesterday's announcement the atmosphere in the PLM office is quite jovial and positively gay ?.
  11. If or when pillings lock marina gets blocked off ,PL might change the name to Fantasy Island .
  12. I was chatting to a couple who moor in Pillings this morning ,they seem to think everything will be OK ,and even if the entrance does get blocked ,it will only be for a short space of time.
  13. Don't forget of course that the boaters who took winter moorings will be leaving at the end of the month.
