  1. Just one thing to be aware of is that the LPG from the pumps in Europe (Particularly Spain apparently) can cause issues with the jets on Gas Fridges. That said you may not be going to Europe or having a Gas Fridge!
  2. This post cannot be displayed because it is in a forum which requires at least 10 posts to view.
  3. If a mains supply is available i'd be tempted to put a small tube heater in the engine bay on a low temperature just to keep the damp out.
  4. I managed to get these today. Apologies for the reflection on the Photo’s.
  5. If can't be certain if it's the same Nelson but this may be of interest if it is https://rwbc.org.uk/wp-content/uploads/2018/02/Operation-Nelson.pdf In short it ended up being owned/used by the Retford and Worksop Boat Club at Clayworth.
  6. A few years ago I was shouted at by a resident of a new housing estate which is next to the Canal as she didn't like all the boats going past her Garden...........
  7. I wonder if it's a "real" location or CGI and if real where it is. I suspect it's probably a match of the two with the lights etc. added in.

    It depends where in Babworth woods you've looked. There is a section that at present would normally have an abundance of Chestnuts although i've not been down for a few months.
  9. Paul Barber builds some excellent boats and his skills are well known. If you are on Facebook he can be found here https://www.facebook.com/PjBarberBoatbuilderLtd/
  10. You can head up to the Norwood Tunnel which is around 32 miles and if you then want to you can walk over the top and head towards the restoration. There are no other waterways to turn off although hopefully that will change in the future.
  11. The Chesterfield is well worth a visit and there are some lovely spots. It's worth checking out https://www.youtube.com/channel/UCJ1_CKxovjYVXkpNCLOjrbA as they have just spent the entire lockdown on the Canal. Don't worry too much about the weed it's vastly improved in recent weeks. The Boat Club at Clayworth is currently closed but may well be open by then and they are a friendly bunch there are also visitor moorings with facilities.
  12. I use 3 for WiFi having fallen out with them many years ago I gave them another try. I have to say i'm quite impressed I have a proper router not a MiFi and use it at home. I've been able to download whilst on teams sessions and it has numerous devices connected. £22 a month.
  13. I've seen this from both sides. I go boating and also do some angling on both the Canal and the Trent. I was the fishing bailiff on the Canal for a while and did ban an angler that refused to move from fishing on lock landings and would give boaters abuse for getting too near. Equally i've had an incident where I was fishing on a straight stretch of the Canal and a boat decided to moor where I was fishing "because he can" I know that section well. It's a fairly equal depth all along and no facilities etc. It also transpired he'd done it to other fishing as well. Moors up then 20/30 minutes lat
