  1. Just seen this in London boat museum Facebook page. Any ideas?

  3. I think you’ll be fine. We are 62ft and regularly go down the Rufford branch. I’ve shared locks with other boats and never had to go in diagonal.
  4. Well said that man! Although we have a home mooring as a back up and a place for some winter downtime, we spend 8-10 months of the year constant cruising and working a full time job. We are happy to commute up to an hour which gives us a large cruising area and no shortage of places to stay all well within the spirit of constant cruising. I work nights so we aren’t limited to moving at the weekend. we love the lifestyle and as mentioned above it’s always rewarding.
  5. Trent 5 re-listed https://www.apolloduck.eu/boat/yarwoods-70-traditional/573934
  6. We passed Duke on Monday on the Leeds Liverpool near Burscough and I’ve just heard that a chap in Scarisbrick marina has bought it, which is where it currently resides.

  8. They did sag a little especially when it had rained. I remedied this using a length of beading underneath the centre. I’ve ordered some adhesive magnetic strips to use as a permanent solution.
  9. Yes they are. https://e-magnetsuk.com/magnet_products/work_holding_magnets/pot_magnets/external_threaded_stud.aspx i used 4xE1006 on each panel. We moor on the western L&L where it’s pan flat and wide open and the panels haven’t budged even in the strongest winds.
  10. My flexible panels are mounted on pot magnets to raise them off the roof.
  11. Can anyone tell me what power starter battery would be suitable for a 2LW? my current one is on its last legs but has no info on it.
  12. As far as I’m aware Marsh lock is still out of action after being damaged by the Daniel Adamson earlier this year so you can’t get off the ship canal onto weaver. I spoke to the lock keeper at Dutton locks a couple of months ago who told me that CRT were having difficulty sourcing suitable timber for the lock gates. Apparently as it’s a sea lock a particular timber has to be used.
  13. He’s definitely still on the prowl. I spotted him taking photos of our boat at Stockton Heath a couple of months ago.
  14. If I had the cash I would also buy Effingham in a heartbeat. It may not be the the most desirable boat out there but in terms of rarity it’s up there at the top of the tree. ( prepares to be shot down by those who know far more than I do)
