  1. In the general scheme of things it's probably no worse than stealing someone's lock Ann!
  2. They do look awfully like yachties .......... who have lost their way!
  3. All the best for a great life ahead. You're very unlikely to regret it!
  4. I thought the fat boat might have got to about this point ............ and had begun to speculate ............... Notice Alert Grand Union Canal Starts At: 010 Ends At: 010 Saturday 20 July 2019 15:30 until further notice Type: Navigation Closure Reason: Information Update on 21/07/2019: Navigation is now open.

  5. Didn't they make rather an 'ash of it?
  6. So is it a category D boat ..... or better? Significant if you eventually contemplate a few coastal hops to get yourself into other waterway systems.
  7. Thank you for clarifying that Iain. So nothing whatsoever to do with the 'mathematical' nature of the Edinburgh and Glasgow Union Canal then ...........and, as part of a scale model of the solar system, everything to do with a similar example set out along the Bridgwater and Taunton Canal! It would explain why I've struggled for so long to form a connection which had never existed!!
  8. I'm intrigued Iain. Please could you expand and also tie in that rather nice diagram depicting a Mathematical Canal under the bridge beside your mooring?
  9. It's been strongly suggested on here that Tranquil Rose is no longer able to transit this bridge hole .......... although there has been no hint of her not being able to get through Blue Lias Bridge immediately east of here.
  10. Indeed! (you just can't beat a good Oscar Wilde quote ....... although Mark Twain runs him pretty close)
  11. Have spoken to the owner of the fat boat and its beam = 12' 6". He is very upset about all the speculation that has taken place on the forums. But then I haven't noticed him contributing to this forum and nipping things in the bud by posting this somewhat critical dimension. Apparently work on the bridge masonry commences today – indeed it may well have started by now!
  12. 'cause then they'd have to wonder up the cut and do the same thing to Blue Lias bridge?
  13. I believe that the air draft here 'has the final word' so to speak! All in hand I'm assured .......... and just for good measure they're going to make the entire Hurleston Flight suitable for wide beams ...........
  14. Blue Lias is recorded in Nicholson as being 12' 0"
