  1. Bus driver dark humour would ask if heโ€™s bought a lottery ticket yet, cos heโ€™s obviously one of lifeโ€™s lucky ones! ๐Ÿ˜
  2. We seem to work for the same company; but not the same depot.. v close tho.. our drivers are all very concerned for your colleague.. any news? Plz feel free to pm me..
  3. Met him a few times; he was a kind and gentle soul.... ๐Ÿ˜ข
  4. It's all in the eye of the beholder aint it? We love that boat (Black Pearl iirc..), the owners are proper creative types who have i think a vw camper and a motorbike of some sort which are all proper works of art - not to everyone's taste to be sure but we loves 'em..
  5. That was certainly the case just now when i rang CRT for a bit more info on the Ashby closure - the only bit of info not merely regurgitated from the webpage was that local teams would be back in offices on the 2nd, and would i like to ring back then! (actually, that was quite useful!)
  6. Awesome stuff! A cool Yule and a happy new year to all... especially all those who have helped and offered advice with our last 3 years of numpty-ass questions and crises! ๐Ÿ˜
  7. We'd rather like to go next year, and take the boat - any idea how quickly, if at all, the tickets sell out? How hard is it to moor on the towpath anywhere near... hmmmm....
  8. Just thought i'd resurrect my old post to give you dudes an update! Old batteries came out - they were about 65kg each and ended up being milk float batteries... poor Jon nearly did himself an injury getting the buggers out...... New batts (slightly smaller in size thank god!) in, wired up and working well.. BM1 monitor doing its thing fine.... Solar doing as well as it should in November! Water pump replaced and no leaks anywhere.... Sat on towpath (in warm bote!) having taken a week away from our mooring as it looks like we'll be stuck for three months ish from Jan 3rd when CRT start work on Bridge 6. Feeling very happy and almost smug, it's been an utter swine of a year for us (family bereavements etc.) and i can't wait to see the end of it - but we have achieved quite a lot notwithstanding, and i'd just like to send out a big thank you to everyone who contributed help and opinions and laughs on this forum. ๐Ÿ’•๐Ÿ’•
  9. Sounds like an awesome idea.... we will certainly consider doing this in the spring, whenever they re-open our canal after the winter stoppage! ๐Ÿ˜‰
  10. Thatโ€™s brilliant everyone; thanks loads.. ๐Ÿ˜ Set at 400..
  11. Cheers Rusty - was sure you had one too! In parallel - x2x12v - 12v system...
  12. So having changed the leisure batteries and reconnected everything - all good ๐Ÿ˜ Read the bm1 manual about how to set it up again, and am confoozed about setting the battery capacity. Each of the new batteries is a โ€œnominalโ€ 220ah - do I enter 220 or 440 into the battery capacity setting? Cheers in advance! ๐Ÿ˜
  13. Indeed - tโ€™cake were all soggy and tโ€™water all cake-y! ๐Ÿ˜‚
