  1. I'm now wondering how many forumites were at that dinner at the Dunkenhalgh! I know for sure we were, also @Pluto, @fanshaft, @Duck-n-Dive (who supplied the beer!) It was quite surprising that we knew people at every single table at that event. We are still amused that the "official Thwaites LL200 beer" was delivered in a Marston's cask and tasted remarkably similar to several other "special" beers. The bottled Navvygator from @Duck-n-Dive was based on an 1816 porter recipe and hasn't been produced since which is a shame.

  9. If they are anything like Mastervolt, they'll tell him it can't be fixed and offer him three hundred quid off a newer model!
  10. And us photobombing the TV segment of all the local Mayors on Kennet as we were late into Blackburn ... ... before having to don Penguin Suits and go to the LL200 presentation dinner that evening. https://canalrivertrust.org.uk/news-and-views/news/leeds-and-liverpool-canal-special-bicentenary-awards-presented
  11. ... having suffered a traffic jam in Gannow Tunnel earlier in the morning. If Kennet's crew had told anyone else in the flotilla they were having a photo opportunity at the far tunnel mouth, the rest of us would have waited in the open air. What actually happened was the entire flotilla ended up fender to fender in the tunnel, as the lead boat just stopped at the end of the tunnel ...
  12. I thought it was MrsBob's boat. As you like the dilithiums you probably want to be Scotty, but you are a doctor and I definitely think you should be in medbay ... and not as Bones!
  13. I think that the USS Enterprise is technically a ship not a boat ...
  14. I do agree that traffic calming measures would be a better use of the funds. The best one I've ever seen is at Park Lane services on the Caldon. It's three fences offset with exactly the correct spacing - you can cycle through it at 4 mph, and you'd fall off your bike at 8 mph. You'd probably lose teeth at 16 mph and write your bike off at 24 mph. It's wide enough to allow prams, wheelchairs and mobility scooters through, and has no moving parts. Sustrans hate it ...
  15. What's wrong with it? "Stuff Everyone, Go Faster" would be a problem.
