  1. Hi all, Crane is preparing for the Challenge. Hopefully, the crew will be me, Trev, Rob Tom and James - and Dave Moore also hopes to be with us at some stage. Plus Gilly and Emma in the galley! Trust the weather will not be as wet as the Saturday last Year! We were able to have a reconnaissance trip into Titford Pools last weekend with Dove, but perhaps the partial closure of the Crow is going to interfere with some plans! Geoff
  2. Hi all Many thanks for posting the pictures of Crane and for all your very kind remarks. She certainly gives us great pleasure and, with the considerable help of Dave Moore's amazing lettering and painting skills, now looks very different from when we first saw her! Really delighted to hear that others think that she looks pretty good too! I think it is probably the first time that's she's been loaded for some 50 years - although I'm happy to be corrected if somebody knows otherwise! I thoroughly enjoyed the trip back to Stockton via Shackerstone, in company with Mark on Callisto, and
  3. Hi all, I'd just like to add our grateful thanks to the (tiny) BCNS organising team for this year's Challenge for a great event but also to all at Hawne Basin for their great reception and hospitality. We started at Merry Hill and all went according to plan until we were half way up the Crow when the heavens really opened. Unfortunately, our waterproofs proved not to be up to the required task and we ended soaked to the skin! Consequently, having been pretty hard aground near the Navigation, and with a monumental blade full, enthusiasm began to wane somewhat and even the range was lit.
  4. Apologies, All. I haven't got the hang of this yet! Especially not from an iPhone! Very grateful to Bernard for helping me with my crewing shortages. But the Challenge itself isn't a problem. The Challenge is already covered (Gilly, Trev and Dave Moore.) It's moving Crane from Stockton to Birmingham that's the difficulty. My original crew have succumbed to a broken elbow and an obvious need to tend the invalid! At the moment, I'm at The top of the Cape and looking forward to Hatton in the morning! Can't guarantee to have constant web access but a message via Bernard is probabl
  5. Hi all, Just to let you know that Crane is entered for the Challenge. Crew is still being sorted but we should be leaving for Brum on Tuesday. Route planning and general logistics seem to be taking up quite a lot of time! But looking forward to the event and to meeting you. Geoff
