  3. We just met a wide beam on the straightened section of the Northern Oxford just north of Willoughby. We got past, just, with some vegetation rubbing down the side of the boat. The owner didn't seem to have great control and was last seen heading off with lots of power and bow thrusters. It would be interesting to watch him try and get through the bit just before Braunston junction. Cheers Graham
  4. We were pleased to see this previously sunken boat floating at Woolfhampcote today. Cheers Graham

  8. Our boat was broken into at Calcutt, radio, bottle of scotch, tiller pin and a small pair of binoculars were taken. The loss was not really the issue, it was the feeling associated with someone violating our space. Cheers Graham
  9. This sounds very similar to the noise the alarm made on my Isuzu 38. After a lot of help on here I discovered it was a broken diode in the alternator which caused 4 volts across the warning buzzer so it made a annoying but fairly low volume chattering noise. Cheers Graham
  10. We did use ropes to get the bows round. Cheers Graham
  11. We did it this time last year with 61ft. Cheers Graham
  12. Our cratch is about 6 feet 2 inches and we got into the basin. No problems at all. Cheers Graham
  13. Glad it is not just me then. Perhaps someone has stolen three boats! I might just do that, I will wait for their reply to my query. Cheers Graham
  14. I received an email from C&RT today about National Grid towpath work in London. Apparently I received it as Dotterel had been seen in London recently. This was a bit of a surprise as she has not been south of Marsworth since we bought her in 2006. So either their sighting system is unreliable or someone is impersonating Dotterel. I have asked them which of these two possibilities is right. Can you see the records of sightings of your boat anywhere? Cheers Graham
