  1. Attitude matters too. The first time I descended the 18 I was sharing with another boat, they swore "never ever again" and we quite enjoyed it! Yes, it can be hard work and you might need to move some water around but it's a stunning canal.
  2. After you've signed the paperwork to agree you won't use a step up transformer ....
  3. You do rather seem to be avoiding @IanD's main point of concern. It's all technically feasible, but it uses between 2 and 4 times the energy input compared to the useful energy output. Does it make more sense to charge the batteries 4 times using the same input power or to fill the hydrogen fuel cell once? The only sensible use of Hydrogen as a fuel is to convert it to Helium, but that's called fusion ... and has been thirty years in the future for the last 80 years or so! Personally I don't believe we'll get there unless we figure out how to control gravity, so our nearest useful fusion reactor is about 92 million miles thataway! ☀️
  4. If the sawdust is sat on top of the log it's getting top air not bottom air ....
  5. Hydrogen hydroxide you mean? Just rebrand it ...
  6. That seems an expensive way to make firewood!
  7. The best way is just compress it, but it works better with shavings than sawdust. Thousands of tonnes of pressure makes it stick together ...
  8. I thought standard emulsion was classed as non-flammable, it's acceptable to use it near a stove on a non-combustible surface. Oil based gloss not so much!
  9. That's not for shackles. You're only supposed to blow the doors off
  10. There are WC facilities contained in the building and accessed from the towpath. A long lease of these facilities will be granted to the seller on completion. See the legal pack for further details. So presumably not ...

  12. Fit some of those annoying windlass driven hydraulic pumps to it, no need for a power pack then, and make the wide beam crew operate them ... That should reduce the effort for CRT staff and volunteers! As there's a valid diversion route for the three or four hours it's out of position why not arrange/hope for a mechanical breakdown while it's in it's layby?
  13. It's got a multi pack of Brewdog Punk IPA ...
  14. Ah, that's alright then. I was worried it still needed to be done that way after the multimillion pound rebuild!
  15. ... And they are usually mounted upside down on boats so they look more waterproof but are actually much less waterproof when connected!

  19. Why not? I have, and then run my hose through their pram cover to fill my boat tank. I need to be feeling more agile than usual to scramble over their roof, but that's been known too!

  22. That's taken, it's the Bridgewater Canal extended stay permit. It was £1200 a year about 6 years ago, no idea what it costs now, and you still needed a normal boat licence as well!
