  1. Thanks all. Apologies, meant Harecastle Tunnel, as you all correctly assumed. Can I correct the title (tried!) or does a moderator need to do this?
  2. Hi all, Possibly heading south in a few weeks time and was wondering what the typical operating windows are for the tunnel I.e if there is a queue how many boats do they typically let through at a time, before switching directions? And how long is the wait before your direction becomes green again? (apologise but tried the search feature). Appreciate there is currently a booking system which may or may not still be in place, with limited days of travel. If it is still booking only, are there any recommendations for when to book I.e 24 hrs, 48 hrs, week etc? As always many thanks for all useful replies!!
  3. The bigger bottle may have been due to required flow rate, rather than Required volume (evaporation rate and all that black magic).
  4. Seem to remember hiring a boat that had a diesel oven! Think you can get hobs as well but not confirmed via the web. Remember thinking wouldn’t the oven smell and taint the food but everything was good. We tend to remember bad things more easily!!!!!
  5. Nothing to add - Wise words for us all to digest.
  6. Lots of Silt being washed into the canal from the fields unfortunately. probably similar to a lot of places.

    Locker seat cushions.

    Many thanks for your prompt replies everyone.
  8. Looking to buy (or poss make) some cushions for the locker seats in our semi-trad. Want the cover material to be waterproof, with a decent foam inner. Does anyone know anywhere that will make them to order, at a reasonable price and quality. Many thanks.
  9. We have a small park here in Lincoln called Liqurice Park. Not sure of the exact history but there are Liqurice plants growing there. Unfortunately the poisonous variety, not the edible one!
  10. For info, Fundraising site set up to find the homeless chap a new boat and I assume pay for license !!!!!! https://thelincolnite.co.uk/?p=274260
  11. https://thelincolnite.co.uk/?p=273342 Caught fire this afternoon. (Tues 10th) To say it was not in the best condition beforehand would have been a gross understatement! Moored opposite official morings on way out of Lincoln (westward). Noticed it a week or so ago, tied to a tree. Hopefully no one aboard.

    Was going to take the scenic walk to the Badger Inn Just off the Middlewich branch of the Shroppie, but decided my wellies weren’t high enough (path and bridge slightly flooded!)
  13. Agree with Ditchcrawler. Things may have changed but in the past we looked at propane gas detection for a Gas Turbine start system. In the end we didn’t fit any detectors but had to increase ventilation times to ensure we met the hazardous area requirements, because the detectors were prone to poisoning. We also looked at IR detectors (We used them for Natural Gas detection), but can’t remember why they wouldn’t work for us, sorry! As previously said, things may have changed.

    CRT cover up?

    Surely not????
  15. Total speculation but looking at the current pictures and also the video, which shows the water cascading over the concrete side wall which runs down the side of the spill way. The pictures show this wall has been undermined. Could this have been caused by the flow over the wall that then eroded back under the concrete slabs. As I said speculation until full investigation, but no inspections would have picked this potential design flaw. Possibly compounded, as previously stated, as the overflow wasn't even causing the overtopping of the side wall???
