  5. THe area on the other side from the flats gets quite a bit of footfall but if memory serves me right there is a fairly wide bit of grass between the boats and the path. More grass on the other side of the path between it and the Dee branch this makes it a popular area for dog walkers.
  6. We have moored there too and agree that it is quite a quiet spot. Good Chinese on the corner above Iceland
  7. The moorings in the basin tend to be on the opposite side from the buildings so they are a distance away. I didn't realise that the buildings were student accommodation and when we moored there not long after we met you ( October ? ) We weren't aware of any student noise
  8. DeanS last visited in August 2019. I think his suggestion about having a big water tank on the roof for his wife's showers was one of his first posts .
  9. Dean or Dean S . I have often wondered what happened to him. The last we heard on here was that he took his wide beam up the Rochdale after he and other boaters were evicted from the marina near the top of the Rochdale 9 they had been in.
  10. Thank you, I hadn't seen these but I would need quite a few to store the quantity of veg I can get in an ancient cool box which has been lying in the loft for over 30 years 🙂 .

  14. Whisky, not whiskey unless it is Irish 😉
  15. I love haggis but I actually prefer Grants tinned stuff to a "real" haggis in a sort of plastic casing. I haven't seen a haggis bound by a sheeps stomach for donkeys years. This is the time of year however, when haggis go into hiding as they are widely used to celebrate Burns night (25th of january).
  16. Oh, lady gs boat seems to have the same colour scheme as kelpie! Must be a Scottish thing 🙂
  17. coming up "page not found" unfortunately
  18. When we approached the tunnel we were a bit early so switched off the engine. This was fortunate as without our engine we could hear an engine in the tunnel but couldn't see any lights. Well after the lights had turned to green a boat emerged . He had obviously gone in on the red and didn't have a tunnel light. W were very glad we had arrived early! haggis
  19. One of each, I understand 🙂
  20. Well done to both of you getting Lady Gs boat to the boatyard. You are a pair of heros
  21. I use a lot of veg both to have with our main meal and to make soup and I could never keep them fresh on the boat until our last trip. I filled an old coolbox with fresh veg and kept it under the cratch . After almost two weeks on board I still had fresh veg. We didn't have any frost but if an overnight frost had been forecast I planned to move the coolbox into the engine area after the engine had cooled down. Haggis
  22. Yes, good luck for Sunday and I hope your temperature goes back to where it should be . I agree that the weather has been very wintery for the last few days but it was a nice mild spell before that so I suppose it is to be expected.
  23. Sorry if I and others have wasted your time but it is part of the charm of the forum that things wander off course a bit. As Lady G tells us that Sunday is D day you can probably save yourself some valuable time by ignoring this thread till then 🙂
