    My SIM is in my Ee osprey which is now unlocked and is working fine giving me a good 4g signal, now to fill my boots...

    Where is MtB?

    I have spoken on the phone to Tony when I had water pump issues, as said he is very knowledgeable but also a very nice chap.

    Something not quite right.

    Just over eight weeks ago I downgraded my licence to river only. Direct debit came out for my bank for £69 which is the full amount for canal and river. Waited to see if next direct debit changed and lo and behold the full amount came out again. Gave licensing a call and a nice lady said she would look into it and get back to me, in the meantime out of the blue another direct debit came out of my bank the day after the phone call for £32 sothe river licence is costing me more than a canal and river licence. Rang them again and another nice lady told me that everything was sorted and I would be getting a refund of £116. I have no idea where this figure came from but hey no I will take the refund. Then received an e mail saying that my final two direct debits would be for £55. I received my refund today and it was for £4. Now if you take the extra £32 that was taken and divide it by 2 and add that to the two final payments of £55 that makes £71 minus the £4 refund divided by 2 and that makes the last two debits of £69 which is a saving of absolutely zilch. My melon is well and truly twisted.

    1.3mm loss over 21 years, Give it another 100 years then start to worry.

    The Soar is a lovely river but needs to be treated with respect when in flood.

    I would not be comfortable leaving my boat for any length of time on The Soar, and if I had to it would be with very slack ropes.

    Most of Europe got pasted.

    True, Europe got it big time, shame it wasn't us. Would have been fun.

    What happened to winter ? Just goes to show how SSW doesn't always deliver.

    This boat is a regular on the Soar, would have hoped they knew the dangers but obviously not. At least it is safe and I would think anyone with boating knowledge would have done the same and loosened the ropes.

    After all the rain last night the soar is now in flood. The owner of this boat almost had a nasty surprise when he returned. In almost the same spot as Excalibur went down last year, this boat was listing so much on tight ropes if the water had come up another few inches it would have sunk. After loosening the ropes she is now safe.
