  1. I regularly crewed our 52ft Narrowboat single handed without any problems, and that included several journeys on the Thames between Reading and either Oxford or Brentford and the Insurance Company were fine with it. You just have to make sure that you have everything you might need close to hand, so that you do not have to leave the tiller, or moor up, to get them.
  2. This post cannot be displayed because it is in a forum which requires at least 10 posts to view.
  3. There have been a number of security issues with both PayPal abd ebay recently, and somehow they seem to be linked with thier association with Nectar card. I know it is small fry, but they managed to empty my Nectar card account through PayPal, I contacted PayPal who denied all knowledgem[, but the points returned within 48 hours, I have now disabled the link between them and Nectar.
  4. That is a rather confident claim. I think most people will agree that I have a less than common name, but I doubt whether you could find very much about me, except my membership of Canal World Forum, and possibly my published research work on an obscure specialist area of historic technology, and then only if you knew where to look.
  5. This issue was discussed recently where i made the following observations:- That is C&RT's (and the old BW's) default position, but it has been successfully challenged on numerous occassions. If the Mooring rights are incorporated into the deeds of the property they are transfrerable to a new owner. I have moored on two sites in the past where that has been the case, and because it is a legal provision rather than an agreed consent, C&RT cannot even charge EOG mooring fees.
  6. Anything would be easier, especially as I have no idea where it is, and whether it is charged or has any credit. I have never used it since we sold the boat.
  7. That is not correct. There are a lot of properties backing onto former BW water which have mooring rights. I used one on the lower GU regularly, and moored for several years on one on the Upper Grand Union. Furthermore I did not have to pay end of garden fees either.
  8. Yes, but the secret is in the term "memorable data" and I can remember all of mine. I can also remember my pin, but why should I want to use a card reader and my card whilst sat at the computer? Just more junk to carry around and loose, apart from which I have to take my spectacles off to use the card reader, and put them back on to enter data into the coputer, which does not make matters any easier.
  9. Don't get too confident Jim. One of my Building Societies is trying to abandon passwords and are trying to persuade force me to provide a mobile phone number, so that they can text me a "once only" password which has to be entered before I can access my account. They do not seem to understand that whilst I do have a mobile phone, I have not used it since we sold the boat, and can never remember where it is or whether it is charged etc. Furthermore I have have never been able to work out how to recieve text messages on it.
  10. Yes, quite a few sites have that feature, but will it save your passwoed if you try to access your account from someone elses computer?
  11. Get out of bed the wrong side this morning did we Alan? Or did you take a double dose of "Miserable old Git" pills?
  12. That is C&RT's (and the old BW's) default position, but it has been successfully challenged on numerous occassions.

  13. Depending on the make it may be a different colour, red oxide being a common one,
  14. Remply used to have 83 factories across the UK manufacturing a wide range of products, more tha 90% of the workforce was disabled, many of whom had been injured as a consequence of wartime activity, During the 1980's it gradually rationalized its structure and eventually either sold the factories or closed them. AFAIK only the Furniture division survives as a co-op of ex Rempoly employees. The only Fred I can remember was Fred Croker, who was assistant to the Sales Director.
  15. I was not aware that there was any difference. AFAIK all immersion heates have a 2 1/4" bsp thread, with a spanner size of 3 3/8" AF. which is sometimes transposed as 85mm, and sometimes 86mm. The one you had must have been a "special"
