  1. Checked it again this morning and it is showing no output voltage.
  2. Hi My genny (Lister Petter 5kva) has worked perfectly for the past year or so, however, yesterday the genny still fired up but it wasn't generating power. I plugged my grinder in and it ran really slowly. I plugged the digital radio in and it power that. Any suggestions on what might be the issue before I start taking it to bits?
  3. Boat now found thankfully. Found moored up the far side of the next lock about a mile away. No obvious damage. Thanks to anyone who was on the lookout.
  4. Hi all I have just had a phone call off a good friend asking me to keep a look out for a boat that has been reported stolen from the Faries Hill area of Wakefield. The boat was allegedly taken yesterday or today. It is a 40 foot narrow boat, black hull, green got top with scruffy paintwork. It's name is Queen Iona but this is only shown on the licence in the window. I am waiting for a picture and a crime number. If anyone in the area has seen it go past I would appreciate the heads up. Thanks
  5. Hi Looking at buying an inverter welder (stick welding) which will be run off a genny (5kv lister). Anyone have any advice for me before I buy?
  6. Its the bridge out of the Cas lock going in the direction of Ferrybridge. We are moored up there too. River is down a lot this morning but canal was well up yesterday.
  7. Ahh...thats probably it then. Thanks . Just with the money being debited from my account this month I wrongly assumed the licence would be for this month.
  8. Morning Just got my auto renewal email, 'thank you for purchasing you licence blah de blah de blah.....'. Out of interest I clicked on the linky to check everthing and found that the price they have charged me for a 12 month licence is not the amount that is in their published list of fees on their website which they say is valid from April 1st 2017 to March 30th 2018. The years fee they have charged (£910.20) does not even appear on the list. Just wondering if any one else has had any issues? I have of course emailed to query it.
  9. Just wondering if anyone knows a part number for a replacement for this. I have looked on line but can't see any where the double bolt holes are at ten to two to the outlet. Thanks in advance to any one that can help.
  10. I take note of the 'Do not consult for the sake of it' part of this statement. Surely this is at odds with the fact that FOI requests have shown that C&RT in fact did not receive any complaints regarding the current system of licencing and therefore the whole basis for having the consultation based on 'complaints received' is at very best dubious.
  11. A couple that moor down from me had the same issue. I have attached a linky to their blog (a good read if you have time ) http://narrowboatellis.blogspot.co.uk/2017/07/rotten-egg-carbon-monoxide-alarms-going.html
  12. We bought our barge knowing that the northern waterways were built for, and are still suitable for a boat of it size. The people that knowingly drop a wide beam onto a canal that was not designed to take it, really can't complain about about lack of movement or demand a discount. The same argument can be used for people that currently get a discount for un-connected waterways. Their choice so why claim a discount.
  13. Fortunately, the canals around me were originally built for commercial traffic (Aire & Calder, Castleford, Goole etc) Had they not been suitable then we probably would not have made the same boat choices. As for can the locks here accommodate more than one historic barge, then yes as they are both wide and long.
  14. Not saying you are right or wrong, just wondering at you reasons for it being fair or unfair. I used to have a narrow boat, now I have a historic barge which is wide. I don't use the C&RT facilities any more than I used to, my boat still uses the same length mooring to moor up. The only difference now is that there are many areas of the network as a whole that I am no longer able to travel. It was my personal choice to buy this boat and the trade off between less access to the network and keeping some of the history of the canals alive is worth it to me.
  15. I agree, but I also think this will encourage more CM'ers. Why would someone choose to pay a few thousand pounds a year for a mooring when they can move in a limited area, use all the facilities within this area and still probably be better off than if they were paying for the mooring? In my case they would need to raise my licence by just under 400% to make this a more expensive option than having to pay for my mooring.
