    Insurance question

    This is surely referring to RCR membership.
  2. A tenfoot is different from a snicket or it was in Hull when I was a lad (or a lass...).
  3. You missed out snickets...
  4. I was staggered to see the long stretch of enormous widebeams moored up at Ricky Festival. 😕

    wide beam navigation

    http://www.jim-shead.com/waterways/mwp.php?wpage=Inland-Waterways-of-England.htm This map should show you.
  6. I know nothing about the engine or the builder but I know that if I were going to live aboard, I would want somewhere where I could sit and eat my meals at a table. Tables are useful for all sorts of other things too. Maybe one could be put in the engine room - there's nothing else in there that I can see...

    Not the cryptic then?

    Worst "Bargeware" ?

    OMG! Tea anyone?
  9. Whilst we are on the subject of jigsaws - I bought this one for for one of my offspring and partner this Christmas. Can anyone identify the location or the boat? Or is it entirely a work of the imagination?

    Merely out of interest .....

    Not a military academy of course, but a rather good tango by Piazolla...
  11. What a fantastic achievement, Marc, well done! Thank you (to you and to your mates) for providing a most entertaining and enjoyable Christmas thread - I have enjoyed it enormously. I hope you have a great, and restful, Christmas. And a Merry Christmas to all CWDF members from all of us on nb Lysander.

    Arthur Marshall's Irish Music

    Transporting musical instruments is a nightmare. One of my offspring is trying to get a mandolin over from Sweden but doesn't want it to go in checked baggage. Ryanair deem it too large for cabin baggage and insist it needs its own seat. Given that these days, unless you opt for priority boarding for your group, you end up in middle seats scattered randomly all over the cabin, then I can imagine this mandolin sitting demurely between two strangers, strapped in and wishing it could see out of the window. We haven't established whether it would get its own cabin baggage allowance...

    Old sayings.

    When there were only two channels, BBC and ITV, they were 'sides' where I grew up in Hull. I'm not sure what happened once there were more channels; I was away from Hull and away from access to televisions.

    Yorkshire in the same period for me. Seems quite widespread.
