  2. i might want to cruise a to b then back to a along my favourite stretch and pubs rather than the manner described in CRTs guidance for example
  3. however the revised terms and conditions proposed by CRT require boats with a home mooring to ‘bona fide’ navigate when away from their home mooring despite the 95 Act saying this is not required.
  4. It’s a real shame, he’s always been a friendly face at the top of the flightfor many years. Can’t see CRT manhandling supplies along the towpath from the car park as Gary does now so assume the cafe will close. I assume this will become a welcome station for the chuggers to ply their trade. Seems strange they are doing this whilst at Braunston another popular visitor site they have closed the stop house and let the volunteers go.
  5. The elsan on GU between Stockton and Leamington went a while ago if I recall, something to do with access
  6. HNBC have invited members to send questions to be put to Stuart Mills at the AGM . I and several others I understand have raised the closure and possible sale of the Stop House. Richard Parry recently confirmed to NABO that no decision had been made, but that does not fill me with confidence. As Franger states above if you think CRT should be preserving and making use of its canal side historical assets then please tell them. Can’t see the national trust acting in the same way.
  7. Why should it be any different than say Braunston tunnel - which is booked I think on a Friday at 8am
  8. So first notice said two weeks notice required, second changed it to one week. This latest one says if your busy just call us . Good clear communications.
  9. 2-3 days, we have 2 spare. Occasionally need to use one of them.

  11. CRT and Heritage or policy v reality CRT and heritage A Statement of Principles for the Waterways Heritage To make sure that we continue to take the best possible care of our internationally important waterways heritage, we have enlisted the help of our Heritage Advisory Group to draw up a statement of six principles. These reflect our charitable objectives and our responsibilities to all of our heritage assets. Base our policies and practice on a sound understanding and recognition of the history and significance of the waterways heritage. Apply the optimum conserva

  13. We had our last boat professionally reskinned with wood including canvas on the roof. As we wanted to preserve the interior and keep the wooden feel. In hindsight it was a mistake and led to constant maintenance. It would have been cheaper to have it reskinned in steel. Unless you have the skills , money and time to use the right materials AND happy with the thought of ongoing maintenance I would stop and go for a steel skin.
  14. I would rather CRT acted in accordance with the current legislation that governs navigation and licensing. There are existing by laws that govern most of the things they are trying to introduce but then enforcing these would require a degree of independent oversight.
