    Northwich town bridge over the Weaver

    I was wondering why the yacht had come up river. Maybe to one of the boatyards?

    They are flexible so you could stick them round a mushroom vent to cover a wider angle. It is a bit of a game though - some of the requirements were completely disregarded by the surveyor.

    I bought some coloured self-adhesive led strips for about a fiver off ebay and wired them to the boat electrics. They do look a bit like fairy lights and I don't think the surveyor was too impressed but he let it go.

    Yes you need nav lights even though you're not allowed on after dark... A handheld VHF is useful to listen out for shipping movements and makes the trip more interesting. The organising and admin is a bit of a faff but the actual boating is simplicity itself. A thoroughly enjoyable day out.

    Check the forecast 24hrs before - that's not too late to cancel.

    I wouldn't worry - I found it no different to being on the Weaver.

    Might be worth swapping it with the one nearest the battery.

    Middlewich Branch breach - Shropshire Union

    He's a lightweight. I could fix it with sticky back plastic and some jam.

    Boaters with cassette bogs already do much the same.

    Never knew there was such a thing. Will he have to go home and change if he fancies a coffee?

    Personal experience and simple observation. You owe me fifty grand.
