  1. Many years ago we hired a Black Prince boat called Drummer Boy or Girl from Silsden on the L&L. I remember that shortly before we arrived there had been a dreadful accident with another Black Prince boat which turned over in a Lock with terrible loss of life I believe and I think it was near Gargrave ? Anyone any memory of this ?
  2. Thank you. Not the end of the world if we can't but we need provisions.
  3. Will we be able to moor Thursday ( 23rd ) ? Ta
  4. Just come through the bridge, be there 12 noon Mondays and Fridays, no probs.
  5. Have just heard on the Middlewich that there is a problem on the Liverpool Link. Not on the web site yet and no info from CRT on the phone. We are booked in on the 8th May so have you any further details ? Sorry, just read the other post concerning this, must pay attention ! As you were.
  6. I have to put my hands up and be honest here. I will still have 6 brass portholes ( scuttles ) to satisfy my need to rub something vigorously.
  7. Thank you all. As an ex-matelot and merchant seaman ( EDH Lifeboats ) I have painted a yard or two of brass especially on No. 9's ( matelots will understand the reference ) The mushrooms in question are 22 years old and have been polished to death so a coat of paint , pushers red lead sounds good, is the answer.
  8. I have decided, for various reasons, to paint my elderly mushrooms so I don't have to polish them any more. Any paint boffins out there who could offer advice on whether there is any prep required prior to painting and is there a specific paint to use. Thank you.
  9. Thank you all, will buy it then. I have downloaded and printed out the C&RT skippers guide as well so all should be well for our visit in May provided the canal remains intact.
  10. Hi, does anyone know if the latest Nicholsons book 5, North West, includes the Liverpool Link. The edition I have doesn't have the link on it, just a dotted line i.e yet to be completed. Can buy one on line, hence the reason I can't just look in it. Thank you.
  11. Since my typo I have been amusing myself ( as you do ) with changing vowels all over the place such as the Tront and Morsey canal etc. but, quite frankly it got a bit silly so stopped as I was spending far too much time giggling to myself in a corner.
  12. Thank you all, much appreciated. So once we have done the Lonk we will crack on and get into the Pool.
  13. So I take it none of you have cruised the Liverpool Lonk then ? Charming canal I have to say.
  14. HI, just booked for Liverpool in May. This is our second attempt and we are hoping the canal retains it's watertight integrity long enough for us to get in and out. Can anyone who has done the trip please advise the best place to moor for the night prior to setting off on the trip into the city. Thank you
  15. Thanks Bruce, will give that a bash. Whilst on the subject of Safari, I am frequently confronted with a message saying " Safari cannot find this ( whatever I have tried to access ) This includes banking, so much so that we use Firefox which works OK. Will try the show certificate route, thank you.
