  1. River Class 'Blue top' butty URE for sale. Resonable price assuming it's sound. https://narrowboats.apolloduck.co.uk/boat/e-c-jones-sons-river-class-butty/611979 Anyone know what the motor boat is behind in the photos?
  2. I'm with Cheshire Rose on this. It even looks like today the layout has changed from yesterday. Every time i come on here something is different. A while back i was getting a notification every time someone posted anything, anywhere on any thread. Now i get no notifications at all, even if someone quotes me. I'd be curious to know how many times I've posted since the layout of the forum changed considerably, but it's few compared to how active i used to be and how much i enjoyed the forum. I'm sure there must be others who feel the same. I think that's part of the problem. To you those sentences seem normal, but to me they may as well be Japanese.
  3. Wondered how long it would take for the first one of these. LEAVES!
  4. It should be pointed out of course that despite all these comments about how lovely the Caldon is, mine included, it's widely recognised that you shouldn't moor overnight between Etruria Junction (start of Caldon) and Engine Lock. People do stop in Milton sometimes as it looks nice but it's quite common for windows to be smashed on boats there.
  5. I think this thread and all contributions so far are just massaging his ego.
  6. 10 responses there. I wonder how many were surveyed and what the ratio of positive, neutral and negative responses were. Picking a handful of the worst ones is always going to create a negative picture of things.
  7. Where are you getting Pureheat from? As far as I'm aware they stopped making it a couple of years ago.
  8. Yes. #thismaytakeawhile
  9. Seem to remember i just used to push something down by the fuel pumps. A rod or something that connects the 2 fuel pumps? My memory is not great.
  10. I see it around quite a bit on the Four Counties Ring. Very nice boat. I can't get the advert to load but am i correct in saying someone has said the asking price is £24k? If so it should sell quickly.
  11. I'm about to turn onto the Caldon. Where is this winding ole'?
  12. Just remember, the prices that boats sell for is usually not what they've been advertised for. In fact in historic, or ex. work boats as you call them, i suspect the sale price is often considerably less than the price advertised and most hang around for sale for a while. IMO the going average price for an unconverted boat is £45k ball park. The price for a converted boat £65k ball park. Of course there would be variations either way depending if boats were in exceptional condition (for example a new bottom), or in poor condition and needing significant work. If you were thinking of converting a historic boat, then 'Otley' would be a very good option. It's already had some conversion done and 'seems' to be a very attractive price. Personally (and I'm no expert) i think if you were to buy an unconverted boat and convert it and fit it out to any reasonable standard, i think you'd be looking at well over £20k, possibly double, and i doubt it would add that value to an asking price if you were doing to make money (short or long term). The only way i could ever seeing your idea be viable was if you could do the work yourself.
