  1. We were based at Gayton with Honeystreet a few years ago. From memory, we had no issues with base or maintenance/turn rounds.

    Some people are clearing the cache, some the catch, anybody clearing out the cratch?
  3. We used mobiles at the narrows last month and signal was no problem on EE.
  4. I did the trip through to the basin at Llangollen 3 weeks ago and we draw around 2'6". A bit of a slog on the bit between Trevor and Llangollen and we did run aground a couple of times near the edge on the return trip. At 24", I think you will be OK.
  5. Yes it was nice to get back to peace and quiet.
  6. I got back home from a trip on the Llangollen on Sunday. We arrived at the basin on the Friday evening of the late May bank holiday weekend and there was plenty of space. I counted just 10 boats, only one of which was a hire boat. I think the basin has room for about 30 boats. The main issue was the town itself, extremely busy.
  7. I worked on deep sea going oil tankers years ago. I once told a girl I worked in oil and steel, to which she replied, “are you some kind of sardine?”.
  8. Our shared ownership boat is called Honeystreet, and until we had a couple of years on the K and A back in about 2016, she had never been near to Honeystreet. I spent the first dozen or so years explaining to all and sundry that we weren’t from Honeystreet, and neither was the boat.
  9. I sailed with a submariner when I was in the Merchant Navy. A good lad but a bit out of it at times.
  10. Shift workers. When I was at sea, I used to enjoy a couple of beers after the morning 4-8 watch.
  11. I noticed recently on the Narrowboat and Canal Lovers Group Facebook page that Tanmim was asking for advice on moving a boat from Whilton to London. I presume that she has bought this boat?
  12. This looks like a different one to the Stourport one.
  13. Indeed, I wouldn’t trust our solicitor to do an engine service!?
  14. Yes that’s what we did last year. Several of the group lost weeks in the spring and early summer and we had a reallocation where others gave up weeks to those that lost out. We had a week in September given up by one of the syndicate, having missed a fortnight in May. A few weeks have been lost this year, so we may yet have another divvy up.
