  1. We are currently 6 deep waiting to go down the Hurlston locks. Not sure why yet too far back in the queue.
  2. Plenty of water. Sue needed a step ladder to get back on the boat at Press junction. Level was 2 inches below the top.
  3. Luckily the can only.opens from the top so it's always right way round.
  4. To praphrase Sir Rod First scratch is the deepest.
  5. Whitchurch on the Llangollen. Got an event notice from CRT yesterday.
  6. It's seems we will be passing Whitchurch this weekend when the boat gathering is happening. Is it normally very busy and are any members on route to it?
  7. Thanks all. Lots of comments as we went through Fradley. Matty40s. Didn't realise it was you. Maybe we will catch you up and you can see the rest. Have realised with all the comments that there are a lot more readers of the forum than contributors.
  8. Thanks BSP. Lots of nice comments on the way to the marina too.
  9. Two scratches while taking it back to the marina but that's why I have touch up paint.
  10. Hi All. After over 6 months Suzie_q is back at the marina and just about to set off on our three week trip to Llangollen. Can't say enough about the great job Andy and Darren did at JD Narrow Boats on giving Suzie_Q the paint job she deserved. Andy has pointed out that he is "NEVER" going to use that paint again, but we are glad he did it for us. Also got to thank Clare Norton for the wonderful sign writting. And before you all ask, yes it is the same boat in both pictures. Both the base colour, the panals and the coach lines are in flip paint, so that it changes colour as it passes you. Give us a wave if you see us in the next three weeks. (Don't think you can miss us really. ) Kev & Sue
  11. We booked both times and don't regret paying towards the upkeep. As for how long it takes to do end to end remember that the locks are manned and are not open late. Also there are restricted mooring so for example there are no moorings between hunts lock and Vale royal lock so you have to time it carefully to get through to Moor above Vale royal.
  12. Can't compare with anything because the boat has been moored there since new. Yes is can get windy, but so can most places. Facilities community and management are excellent in our view and it maybe expensive in comparision but its worth it. Kevin & Sue.

  15. Have you not heard of big brother watching everything we do?
  16. Its surprising what being offered nearly free mercades engines for the year will do to "fixed" contracts!!!!!!
  17. There are discussions going on at the moment about RoboRace, in which totally autonomous cars based on the Formula E cars will hold races around city parks.
  18. "Lashing of ginger beer" was from the Comic Strips 5 go mad in Dorset
  19. Que Film 8x music and a sad looking Barry Norman. "The Plethora of bumhole movies available seems to have struck a chord with the public. Why that might be is a mystery to me!!!"
  20. Merc have put a joke advert in AutoSport..
  21. It's appears the smart money is on vettel to get the spare seat. But I suspect there is a lot of preasure to bring in one of the young drivers. Interesting times. Well there will be more headlines about this than there was about the racing.
  22. I think that was part of Nicos issue. Even when he beat him he didn't "beat" him. You have to remember Lewis has been a thorn in his side since karting days. This way Nico goes out on top and isn't beaten in a straight fight with him next year.
  23. Does remind me of a wonderful put down I heard. When asked how a new consultant was doing the senior pm said: "He's as noticeable as a fart in a sewage farm"
  24. Do you not think that every driver is looking at the get out clause in their contract. They'll be queuing up at Toto's door.
