  1. There was a modern replica of Graham - 'Damon'.
  2. Without a shadow of a doubt the best place for any Land Rover !!
  3. CRT are keeping an eye on bridges now, any bridge overstaying their welcome beware !
  4. I have always found that mixed 50/50 with creosote old engine oil is great for treating fence panels ! Max
  5. Cast Iron will drill easily, no special drill required. Don't be tempted to centre punch first though - Cast Iron is very brittle !
  6. If Harry Potter had a boat................
  7. Something that may be of use to boat owners :- I own a old car (an Anglia 105e) and i am regularly on a forum for like minded owners, we were warned some time ago not to post photographs on the forum taken on a phone with GPS as the photo,s could be interogated with the right software and the location of the car could be found. I do not know if this is true or just another 'urban myth' can anyone on here confirm either way ? If it is true, posting photo's of your boat at its home mooring may not be a good idea. Regards to all, and well done everyone ! Max
  8. Another view of a 'bulk' here :- http://www.ebay.co.uk/itm/BUCKINGHAMSHIRE-GRAND-UNION-CANAL-SOULBURY-PRINTED-/351232058686?hash=item51c70fe53e:g:U4gAAOSwuMFUb0yr Max
  9. It was around the time when upon being asked 'how are you ?' people started replying ' ime good '. Max
  10. Evening all, I have been to Stourport today for a wander around the canal basins, i noticed when walking along the river that the landing stage for one of the ageing trip boats (Severn steamer ?) appears to be an old narrow boat - perhaps a 'joey' of some kind. Is there anyone out there who knows anything about the identity of this boat ? Just curious ! Regards Max.
  11. That's not a narrowband - it's a 'hardtop skip' Sorry, narrow boat !
  12. Evening all, A quick question, something that i have often wondered about :- Is there a difference between a horse drawn Narrowboat and a 'Butty' ? I have always assumed that the original design of a horse drawn boat followed through to the 'Butties' built after horse boating faded out. Or, are there some subtle differences that i have never noticed ? Can anyone help. Cheers ! Max.
  13. I have seen very few photo,s with the chimney of a boat protected with what appears to be a polythene bag, there is however another one in this months 'Narrowboat' - the boat being Bluelines 'Stanton' steered by Doris Collins. Just a thought - i may be miles off the mark though. Happy Christmas all ! Max. Did the Collins family work for BW prior to Blueline ?
  14. http://www.ebay.co.uk/itm/171573979481?_trksid=p2060778.m1438.l2649&ssPageName=STRK%3AMEBIDX%3AIT Anyone know where this is from ? http://www.ebay.co.uk/itm/171573981560?_trksid=p2060778.m1438.l2649&ssPageName=STRK%3AMEBIDX%3AIT Or this one ? Regards Max.
