Tuscan's Achievements



  1. CRT will not use by-laws they are expensive with limited sanction and worse involve an independent adjudicator, the one thing they do not want.
  2. Overplating adds a lot of weight so weedhatch may need building up and drainage holes should be checked for height above the water.
  3. If you could keep it on a Thames deep water mooring you’d be fine. But a 4’ deep V hull on the southern canals would be very difficult. Most canals are 3’ deep U shaped with shallow edges so it would be difficult and impractical. You need also to check the air draft.
  4. We sold Aber last month after 30 years of boating. Age, CRT and the after effects of cancer were making long distance boating more difficult. Now free we are travelling around the country before deciding whether to buy a smaller boat in the spring. we received a FINAL DEMAND CRT’s bold lettering for the balance of our license paid up to date by direct debit. When queried it was because we hadn’t paid their £30 admin fee for processing the cancellation. We then got a very efficient email confirming that our refund for £0.00 would be processed shortly. Just check our account we have not received it yet.
  5. Debdale is friendly was there for quite a few years. Pontoons pretty narrow and metal you want to be close to the bank. Also have a look at nearby north kilworth , fibre based pontoons , good dog walks, exercise areas.
  6. Glad to have supported his charity when we could.
  7. Uncle Tom was moored at Kilworth for many years, never saw it move
  8. https://consult.environment-agency.gov.uk/environment-and-business/nav-boat-reg-charge/?fbclid=IwAR1xplyMKRD4K4dCRs3trbl3T2Jx4xEhX6amjKwkdavMonf7etExK9xIcv8 another consultation = another crease no doubt
  9. We were stuck tied to a tree in the pub garden for over a week due to flooding one year. Many years ago now.
  10. According two CRT a third of CC’ers (2000) currently cruise in a range of less than 20 miles, this includes those with permission to do so. the changes to Milton Keynes moorings to 48 hrs ( 4 areas I think) are I understand to encourage more boat movement and therefore mooring availability. It’s a trial and boaters are recommended to email what they think. One of the potential issues is that these changes may cause congestion outside these areas for those seeking to moor for 14 days.
  11. Not quite it was the morning following a good night in the pub. To access the cottage you had to go across the lock it was icy and sadly he slipped and was found in the lock. Great man , sadly missed we gave his good send off. It was his boat he was building that his son kept.
  12. This post cannot be displayed because it is in a forum which requires at least 10 posts to view.
  13. I’m sure if you follow the terms and conditions you will be fine. It’s only if you attempt to follow the relevant act of Parliament you will get into trouble.
  14. After over 30 years of canal experience health and fitness means we are thinking of moving on, Norfolk broads beckons.
  15. The 1965 Act is very clear what constitutes a home mooring. Surely if there is another vessel on the mooring it’s not available and therefore CRT can take enforcement action. If the mooring is confirmed as available then I would say you have a home mooring and you can cruise accordingly. (c)either— (i)the Board are satisfied that a mooring or other place where the vessel can reasonably be kept and may lawfully be left will be available for the vessel, whether on an inland waterway or elsewhere;
