    June holiday advice please

    Does it have to be a canal or would river cruising suit? You could consider somewhere like the Norfolk Broads. Plenty of places to visit both rural and towns and a city thrown in if you so wish. No locks but several manned swing bridges if your boat height requires them swinging. It is tidal waters but there are plenty of novice hirers that tackle the rivers there. It would be relatively quiet in June and there are boats to suit all party sizes. With a group of seven you could either hire one large boat or two slightly smaller ones. The boats are all river cruisers so tend to offer more living accomodation then narrowboats. Just an example of a few boats that might suit. Larger boats for the whole party: https://www.richardsonsboatingholidays.co.uk/boats/broads-serenade/ https://www.richardsonsboatingholidays.co.uk/boats/broadsman/ Smaller boats with two required: https://www.richardsonsboatingholidays.co.uk/boats/swan-ranger/ https://www.richardsonsboatingholidays.co.uk/boats/swan-romance/ https://www.richardsonsboatingholidays.co.uk/boats/swan-renown/

    My Poverty is Going to be Alleviated!

    Damn I thought that was my money. Been and ordered a car. Didn't expect I would be sharing it!

    Hydro Electric Plant at Newark Town Lock

    The new plant will be in the old lock next to the new lock not in the weir stream. Might upset the folks who tend to moor on the wall there. But should not cause a navigation problem.

    Unusual Issue

    Have you tried having the engine running but not moving the boat? Build up the time it is running and see if it helps him any.

    Given how many boats have passed through Holme Lock with no problems since the hydro plant was installed, I would say that if there was any concern it has proven to be unfounded.

    Dredging the Chesterfield?

    We did manage to ground the dinghy just past Drakeholes by taking our eye off the ball for a few seconds. But I was under the impression that the Chesterfield was only ever two foot odd draft anyway. Or am I wrong?

    Stop it with your sensible answers you two. You are stopping people having another unfounded dig at CRT!

    Unusual Issue

    We didn't think that Syd would be bothered about fireworks as nothing else seems to bother him. But he was a mess the week around bonfire night. We tried to carry on as normal and just ignore him but that technique just didn't really work. Not sure what we will this year! As for the boat luckily he is not bothered about being on that at all even when we are travelling at high speed. He will wander around the decks and on the roof when we are on safer waters. But then happily get back on the helm seat next to Liam when we are on more open or tidal waters.

    Do you have a boating knife?

    We have a beautiful set of hand made cheese knives from Kelham Island Little Messters workshops. Rubbish at cutting ropes of course but they are amazing to look at. Trouble is we have never dared to use them!

    Almost new car, rep mobile

    I30 1.6 CRDi SE Blue Drive. Doesn't really roll off the tongue! It has got some silly low rolling resistance tyres on at the minute. Part of the Blue Drive package which gives it £0 road tax. It won't be having those when they need replacing. Although that wont be a while yet as they are brand new. It is really a very well specced car for the money and has lots of features you wouldn't really expect as standard on a run of the mill family car. Only thing we don't like are the alloy wheels. But we can change those if they really upset us that much!

    Go for it. It's been splattered all over the internet for the last few months whilst Stone Acres have been working on selling it!

    Deal done after a lot of haggling. Pick it up on Friday after work. Was priced at £9200 and we agreed on £7300. Didn't get a great price for the Mini though. But you win some you lose some.
