  1. It says............."Turn your add blocker off"???????????? ???????
  2. The same question has been asked about you on Thunderboat - it appears they miss you.
  3. Thunderboat . Despite some comments here the natives there are not all that bad.
  4. Not the day we took the Athol Brose through in Ronnies video above, the mechanism was playing up & we had to wait for an engineer to come & sort it out before we could pass through. It was such an extremely hot day (for Scotland anyway) that the swing bridge at Erskines bridge had expanded too much to open, luckily the next day was back to normal Scottish weather.
  5. http://www.canalworld.net/forums/index.php?showtopic=78282&p=1623198
  6. Could the Admin team just include a VNC option / line in the default streams along with the existing five, that shows 'new content' just like the old software did? Despite numerous advise including screen dumps in the posts above, I cannot get it to work right, I either see multiply lines showing latest post of each topic, or I cannot see topics that I have looked at within the past hour.
  7. Now they are mostly FW flushed vacuum toilets, we used Unitor "Gamazyne" biological toilet products (cleaner, descaler etc) link to website below: http://wssproducts.wilhelmsen.com/marine-chemicals/cleaning-and-maintenance-1/bio-chemicals

  9. What about donating, or loaning to one of the better known / popular canal museums? That way they would have maximum exposure and be of benefit to future generations
  10. There will always be a period between first touching and fully sitting on the bottom where any movement in the water will cause the boat to bounce on the bottom, if that same movement in the water will cause the boat to move (heave up & down etc) when fully afloat. At first this can be disconcerting until you get used to it, the main concern is when drying out on an unknown bottom. If the boater had already been there for a couple of tides (original report is a bit vague), I don't see how the boat would settle down on something that could damage the hull - that would have happened when first drying out. Having spend several years operating landing craft (regular drying out was part of the job) I would never intentionally dry out at a mooring or landing without having surveyed (visual check previous low tide) the area first to ensure there were no unexpected surprises once we had dried out.☺
  11. Stayed there 2 nights in mid July before heading down to Bowling. There were a lot of empty berths all with power & water outlets available. We had been advised to stop at the Applecross St basin (SC office), however it is small and with a couple of boats already there, there was no room for us. Luckily 2 other hire boats had booked through to Spiers wharf so were able to get through the bridge with them.
  12. Yes an impressive looking marina with a great pub across the canal, unfortunately for the OP, the "Living on Water" web site reports it as fully let.
  13. Edinburgh Quay appeared to have a lot of empty berths when we visited in July, they all have electrical outlets but not water points (only at the scottish canals office near the entrance and the finger berths at the end). Its only a short walk to the castle & a bit longer to city centre /rail station. see link below for information on Lockrin Basin http://www.livingonwater.co.uk/index.php/homepage/show/home/home I have no doubt the Scottish forum members would be able to provide more pertinent information when they next log in.

  15. Interesting. Since there are 21,592 total members, the vast majority of which have not postedon here since the recent rule change, this must mean that they do not agree with the updated rules.
  16. Can't be Nick's bistro - he currently isn't allowed in here.

  18. It would seem so, and are more to be pitied than spanked.
  19. So there is a very real danger that the current "Moderators" will carry on the same, emboldened by their new found anomymity. One of the many things that this thread has highlighted (and other previous threads such as MooninPapas one) is the need for checks and balances to be in place, not only for the members but also the moderators. Quote from www.acton.org :- It was Lord Acton, the British historian, who said: “All power tends to corrupt; absolute power corrupts absolutely.” Please do not misunderstand me. These persons who are corrupted by the process of ruling over their fellow men are not innately evil.
  20. Hear hear - Sorry no "greenies" left
