  2. The Ukraine needs so.e extra weapons....... I am with Tree monkey but unfortunately the management isn't so Christmas day is ruined by the lack of the puddings
  3. I don't like sprouts, 2 a year is enough, the mash was ok so was the Turkey.
  4. Ian it's the Guardian, which is fairly left, Tim is a right wing Brexiteer I expect no different a review! In fact I would be surprised if was different! I love how the photos are done to show one meal in its worst light, he bases his review on the lack of roast potatoes? Sad really, mine the other day was hot and good my mates the same.
  5. Plenty of moorings Ian, flight will be 4-5 hours to Rotherham town lock, if you need shopping either Rotherham railway station for Lidls and Tesco's, parkgate for morrisons and Asda lock for Asda's! Should easily get to pastures where the pub has a not bad pint and food. If you get to Sprotborough, boat Inn, or Indian at top of hill is excellent, beyond Indian is a Sam Smith's pub if it's open can't remember name. Doncaster town moorings ok and city is ok. Plenty of moorings after that just tie up to pilings it's all safe enough all way to castleford, yes even your home town where its turn right for Selby I have moored in safety. Castleford to Coopers bridge was ok apart from Dewsbury, we had a look down the arm but it was no room at the inn so we continued going. I love our big open waters with generally safe places to stay
  6. I am having a word with the licence checker to see what the score is, last week the Exol pride couldn't get on the CRT/commercial moorings for all the boats he ended up moored with bow in the lock entrance and stern right out in the middle.
  7. Yes and no, hook up there but the little village is plugged in!
  8. Yes I can honestly say its huge! I have seen her at anchor in one of the big ponds! She had something really bad around her propeller, they pumped ballast to the bow and the propeller lifts out of the water brilliant

  10. Its still running, exol Pride nice blue, moored a 150 meters away from rim me currently, I will nip over and ask how much they want for her?
  11. We are now at 5 dead swans with another in trouble, ots swimming in circles constantly grooming and no interest in food, it will be gone tomorrow, Defra other than recording don't seem interested, its very upsetting as I do feed the swans when they come a knocking

  15. 46 x 12 Broads cruisers are big enough way bigger than a narrowboat anyway and the usable space is where they win. As for the campervan we have one so know its size, but could fancy something bigger which I would build

  18. That's about right Martin, CRT need the money but don't move the constant moorers on

  24. Because I was out a lot this year and the system is in rag order! Tinsley flight especially, trees blocking the canal for a widebeam especially if they don't have a wheelhouse. Sections of piling collapsed and have been getting worse for years. Landing stages falling to pieces, water shortages that arnt going to get better with increasing temperatures. Our visitors moorings at Eastwood have turned into a little village no room for real visitors anymore! Shall I go on?
