  1. A Bukh would get my vote every time with a big hydraulic PRM box, which prop you use is as has been said, a bit of a black art.
  2. Salix fragilis living up to its name?
  3. There is L.A. Edwards “Inland Waterways of Great Britain”. The Miscellaneous Waterways section at the back lists an awful lots of tiny arms and canals that no longer exist. The photo is from the main section of the book, on the BCN
  4. If I was more disciplined there would be less posts on the B..... thread, and without such a thread I wouldn’t have have found out how many people on the forum have views that make me cringe, let alone the ones who are personally offensive.
  5. The proliferation of political, or politically inspired threads is annoying, and has made me visit the Forum less often. Change the software so that individual threads can be made invisible please. If possible, control the few members whose offensive/libellous comments cause deep offence. You can probably guess how I have voted in this poll.
  6. It might be worth phoning them today, most marinas have staff on duty on a Sunday.
  7. Seat61 is excellent. My wife has recently done almost the opposite journey, Poitiers to Newbury, and would agree that it has advantages over flying, as you are discovering. If you get offered options of going via Lille rather than Paris, our recommendation would be to avoid Paris, unless you want to see things there. The SNCF website offers through tickets, you might need to go to the Oui or OuiGo part of the site. You will need to buy separate tickets from Frome to London as has been said. ETA My wife went looking for seat 61 on each train she was on, and couldn’t find one.
