  2. So your solution to fund the waterways is what exactly? I notice you haven’t answered my questions about widebeams either? If you find CRT so abhorrent what are you directly doing to try and change it’s view? Have you stood for council or some other voluntary role to try and change from the inside or is it easier just to post on social media?
  3. But you said moorers pay for the Network Access? Make you mind up….next you will be saying you are a freeman of the water or some such crap…what’s your idea for funding the network then? In fact why not just put your boat in a field and have done with it?
  4. So nothing to do with CRT owned reservoirs or abstraction then? Why aren’t Marinas built with stop locks to prove your point? Maybe it’s because you don’t actually have any legal standing to back it up for the majority of Marinas….i know the ones that don’t require you to have a licence would be different but these are the minority. I guess you fully support widebeams paying more tho as they take up more water space??
  5. So where is the water supplied from then? Do the fairies bring it by the teaspoon? Moorers do indeed pay an access fee. Perhaps there should be a mooring fee payable for towpath mooring for those that don’t have a home mooring instead…think of the money that could be raised by those welded to the towpath in london alone…..
  6. Perhaps if the Marina had a higher level than the canal and was linked to the canal via a stop lock that might work. But if that isn’t the case then CRT provide the water for the boats to float in…hence there is a charge. If you don’t want to pay you take your boat out the water…but then you pay for keeping it on land….think of It like a standing charge for gas or electricity….
  7. In my most recent direct dealing sorting out an EoG mooring Ive actually found them incredibly helpful and organised...much more so than say estate agents or solicitors....I really couldn't fault them....yes they aren't perfect in some things...blue signs for one and towpath improvements over navigation but in my personal contact I have to say I was impressed.
  8. I would say the same about most of the boating you tube brigade......

  20. It’s also to do with torque as much as HP….my JP2 is 18hp…but lots of torque to swing a prop that would stall a 42hp beta….

  23. As I said it's just something to be aware of....worth using the tap at Tarelton to top the water tank up while you wait for the tide....it's also worth a wander up to the town as its good restocking point...there was a good indian takeaway when we were there as well. Also be aware that it wasnt that easy to get diesel on the Lancaster...so worth topping up at either Fettlers wharf or St marys.....depending on your timescale it's worth spending some time on the Lancaster...you can always have days out on the train from carnforth etc. We really enjoyed it....we had 2/3 weeks over there...a week wouldn't have done it justice to my mind.

    I purposely did it in metric as I thought that would be most useful to a machine shop if one needed to be made!!🤣....Last time I supplied imperial measurements to such a place there was much confusion and teeth sucking!
  25. They are the BMW/Audi of the waterways.....the owners seem to have a very similar mindset...
