  1. Only if that glue is really as good as it's cracked up to be!
  2. It's the wind flowing over the top that will dislodge them. Google the Bernoulli Effect and meditate on how wings provide lift for flight ............
  3. No crane. Locks around 54ft long.
  4. How about getting hold of a copy of the 'Waterway Bible' which amongst other things lists attractions, churches, details of towns and loads of other material (including all the pubs along the way) which could well inform you as to your final itinerary. Nicholson Waterways Guides Book 1 covers pretty much all you need if setting off from Gayton (except the River Nene which starts at Northampton) – https://www.amazon.co.uk/Grand-Union-Oxford-South-East/dp/0008146527/ref=sr_1_1?crid=3W3A1XAA1Z3Q7&keywords=nicholsons+waterways+guides&qid=1554840406&s=gateway&sprefix=nicholson%2Caps%2C240&sr=8-1
  5. There's the bumpy up and down stuff there .............
  6. I'd second that thought ............ and I live on a narrowboat!
  7. By a happy coincidence Towpath Talk have published an article this month that you may find helpful – see page 96: http://edition.pagesuite-professional.co.uk/html5/reader/production/default.aspx?pubname=&pubid=d192940e-f732-42bc-a9d9-6fbce501da9a. Hard copies are available free from the Scottish Canals office in Applecross Street, Glasgow just north of Speirs Wharf and from most of the Lowland Canal mooring sites. As suggested, come and visit some of us residential moorers. We're always happy to chat. Bowling is a good starting point. Feel free to PM me – I've been living on the Lowland Canals for 10 years now. There have been some ups and downs over the past 18 months but the new CEO is now steering a steady course in the right direction.
  8. It's not very often that I'd have the brass neck to suggest that members of this forum visit the 'dark side' but on this occasion I think you'll understand and hopefully give a very worthwhile cause a financial helping hand! https://www.narrowboatworld.com/11431-incompetent-coucil-planning-cost-restortion
  9. Always could be if Forth & Clyde 10 was anything to go by. Spent much of the time dodging the wee steam launches which, once they'd got up a good head of steam, seemed unstoppable (and often unsteerable)!
  10. Yes I will. Should be a good ruck going from Bowling, most moving their boats up to Falkirk over the previous weekend Ronnie as, like you, we are working during the week. Getting from Falkirk back into Glasgow is feasible: mix of cycling and train from Falkirk High or cycling/train combo from Croy if you spend the week ay Auchinstarry.
  11. The number of boaters that have signed up – [email protected] – for this event is steadily growing so don't miss out. Hope to see you there Ronnie!
  12. Now that water weiring over the gates looks just like the Forth & Clyde Canal pretty much any day of the year!
