    Moving to land

    I would speak to a mortgage broker to get a feel for how much you could borrow and the repayment cost. The age of your husband may limit the repayment term available and therefore increase the cost. This will give you the figures to check out your options. Good Luck.

    Leicester Ring

    I agree with Matty , a combination of leaks and vandals often results in low pounds north of Leicester. Other than that a lovely trip

    Leaving the boat in this weather

    We will be away Friday to Monday afternoon but Sunday am is now forecast to be -3 here
  4. We need to leave the boat for a few days. We are in a marina. What’s safer leaving the bubble stove on low linked to radiators or leaving a fan heater (with thermostat) on low

    Yes my wife not only lost out on her pension for 6 years by 9 weeks but has now discovered that she needs to top up her pension to get her full entitlement which she would otherwise have received at 60. Doesn’t make sense to do this for us as for years we realised that it would be foolish to rely on others to help us in retirement but others may have no choice but to go back to work.

    Boxing Day Meet.

    Hunting is a very inefficient way of culling foxes and in the past I believe mainly used to succeed in chasing down the old or the weak. Probably why it’s far more effective to shoot them.

    K&A Closed Until Further Notice

    Not something I’d want to do , but if on a genuine long term cruise I don’t see what the problem is mooring up before a stoppage until such time as the stoppage is lifted and you can continue in a journey. We now seem to be in danger of a restricted summer cruising season. Often it would be better for some of these planned stoppages to be carried out in the summer , longer hours, better use of labour and materials, preventative maintenance before it breaks blah blah

    Homeless on a cold night.

    It’s one of the few charities I’m happy to give to, im not particularly religious as I imagine are most who benifet from the work they do.

    Boatmen commemorated

    Interesting to infer the boatlift is Whilst I agree it’s a magnificent asset a war memorial it is not, surely this was a marketing exercise why would people want a sound system for a two minutes silence. Having said that if it made people think of the madness of war and the lives that were lost rather than the spectacle of the poppies then I can’t see a problem.

    2019-2020 Licence Fees Announced

    I remember one of the many CRT customer service managers/directors telling me that he would prefer to remove the prompt discount completely and have everybody paying by direct debit. As the accountants preferred the predictability of the revenue stream.

    2019-2020 Licence Fees Announced

    Then hoping everyone has forgotten the year on year 5% increase they will then add the basic increase thereafter. Revenue neutral this consultation definitely wasn’t !!

    2019-2020 Licence Fees Announced

    An increase of 5% for the vast majority of boaters dressed up as headline no increase .
