  1. When did the term “continuous cruiser” first come about to differentiate between the licenses of those with a home mooring and those without?

  8. Yes, I’ve used Fettlers, couldn’t fault them.
  9. I was in the Great Western the other afternoon with plenty of choice for Holdens which I do like, but I must admit I went for the Bathams Bitter instead.
  10. They always say go with your first answer but I couldn’t work out the right hand side and the false history threw me. Thought the writing on the apartments at Sherborne might fake. Ok, I might have a 6X this evening. Where am I ?
  11. It’s Sherborne Wharf. I’ve had moorings in there, below the fake history. 👍
  12. my first thought is the sharp turn leading to Gas Street in front of the Mailbox..but not so sure. Salvage Turn.
  13. I’m not suggesting he only looks at Fazeley. Just something to consider. there are lots of circular routes to be taken from there and it could be awhile before he’s fed up of the area.
  14. Before I moved aboard permanently, I used to regularly swop marinas. I think a lot depends on the length of the boat, at only 48’ I never have trouble finding a marina or boat yard to accommodate me. Have a look at Fazeley Marina, with the M42, M6 and A5 it’s a doddle to drive to from which ever direction you come. You’ll be central to go off exploring the network. Have a chat with them, they’re approachable and friendly. And they’re ABC so you can use their other bases short term if space available. otherwise if you’re ok leaving the boat for a fortnight on a 2 day mooring, which now seems a popular option, then you’ll save a few quid 👍
  15. The weather’s taken a turn, maybe it’s time to keep a pot of something on the stove. How about save the money on pub food and buy some good books from the Mill, then you can read them while drinking a glass of something while the pot of something cooks away.
  16. I think generally there is a disregard for the 2 day restrictions, and by all sorts of boaters. The restrictions are no longer short stretches but now take up long stretches of the bank.
  17. I wouldn’t look so shocked LadyG When did you last move? 😎😂
  18. With that particular sign it’s 2 days all year round, which is totally bonkers. I don’t know how they decide either. Especially in out of the way places like Lane Head with no facilities other than a caged mooring. Regards the law 🤷‍♀️ Seems totally unlawful to me. If the moorings are little used then I might spend a few extra days. If it’s obviously a busy spot with a shortage of space then I’ll shove off and get out the way. I’ve moored a couple of times this year on 48 hr moorings and not seen anyone, so stayed maybe 4 or 5 days before I’ve moved off.
  19. Yes CRT should be ashamed. I wrote them an email and they said they will have it changed ASAP. 🤷‍♀️ Whether they will? And they confirmed it’s a 2 day restriction. I see 2 days really is the standard sign everywhere for restrictions on moorings now, even though we can have 14 days. It really is hard work on that canal the pubs should have better beer to make it more worthwhile 😃.
  20. Manchester, a city with a link to 3 major canals has nothing to offer in way of CRT facilities/services.

  22. I think you’re confusing the ladies 😃 there be a lady G and a lady C. G’s a day away from Brighouse.
  23. Or simply use a proper hose. A proper hose will loop across the path giving the cyclists something to consider.
  24. Ha! That happened to me today when I was quite happily working the lock. Someone came out the bushes to help. I asked where he’d come from and he said the boat moored off side. Had a quick natter and thanked him. Never gave it any thought.
