  1. Looking at the picture again it is clear that there is a rectangular hole that has developed under the handrail fixing, matching the plate holding the bolts. A similar failure occurred at Denham deep, and i suspect both of these were caused by letting gates slam shut when opening paddles, combined with terminal rot.
  2. I'm not sure that a comment in a blog is anywhere near either official or a legal instruction. If it is purely for the duration of the pandemic, fair enough but the mention of locks/paddles left open leads me to think otherwise.
  3. My son had his nicked opposite the Boat, top of the Stockton flight. 100 litres.
  4. Where the ironwork has entered the oak it has caused decay and i'd hazard a guess that someone has opened the paddles and left the gate to slam shut, causing the beam to fail at the weak point.

  7. My experience of webasto in trucks is that they tend to start playing up within a couple of years, i suspect because they don't get any maintenance until they do. I thought the header puzzled about Webastos was about tales of a notorious Mexican bandit!
  8. Not at all, about manners and understanding.
  9. Can i ask what the bureaucracy consists of? You would think they would encourage the ownership of these relatively rare craft.
  10. That, and a few other things saw him banished to the U.S. until he wore out his welcome over there and became widely despised. Public has a short memory where celebrities are concerned, and Morgan is reinventing himself in the populist mode.
  11. One detail whilst not definitive is the centrally mounted headlamp, as they were built with it offset. I don't know if that would tie up with a particular craft of that era?
  12. Not a chance, for one, the back cabin/engine room/livery did not survive for nearly thirty years in that condition, nor did the undamaged counter bands. I doubt it would be carrying the grand union canal company livery either!
  13. That homelessness can be eradicated overnight, oh, hang on, that's already been done - why not before if it was that easy?
