  1. Can anyone clarify whether these volockies are paid by CaRT or are genuine volunteers.
  2. As booke23 says it is about 17 hours cruising time but you need to allow a bit more for queuing at the aqueducts, tunnels, locks and the narrow sections just before Llangollen. You could easily go as far as Grindley Brook and wind the boat in front of the top lock then moor on the visitor moorings and walk back to look at the staircase locks or moor in the Whitchurch Arm and walk into town. Llangollen basin is a popular overnight mooring @ £6 per night and is a short walk away from the town and the Llangollen steam railway.
  3. Have a look at the wiganflightcrew face book page to see if anyone else is heading up the flight and also to let any volunteer lock keepers know when you will be setting off up the flight. Note that these are NOT CaRT volunteers.

  5. SML had a special offer on when I bought it a couple of week ago. The offer included:- 10 litres ballistic black 1 litre alkyl thinners Rollers 4inch 5 pack 16 inch long roller frame ProDec 3 brush set Paint scuttle 5 litre Paint scuttle liner x 2 Disposable coverall x1 extra large £93 in total, delivery was 4 days.
  6. I have just this morning put my 3rd and final coat of SML Ballistic Black on my 40 ft narrowboat. In total I have used 7.5 litres leaving me 2.5 litres for touching up when needed. It went on smoothly and due to the current heatwave dried in no time. I stuck to the recommended 1 coat per day. It is the first time that I have used it having previously used Intertuf.
  7. Recently the information has been put on the CaRT website and includes the following:- Booking instructions (for boats based on the Bridgewater Canal wishing to access the Trust's waterways) Booking instructions (for boats based on the Trust's Waterways wishing to access the Bridgewater Canal)
  8. Thank you Lady C, I have printed the information that I need.
  9. CaRT usually have an annual licence fee chart showing boat sizes and prices but I have been unable to find this year's on their website. Does anyone know where I can find it? Thanks
  10. Make sure he is building exactly what you want as changing your mind mid build is likely to prove costly. I thought most boat clubs have an informal chat these days rather than an interview but don't worry about it as new members are welcomed at any boat club.
  11. Thanks for the update and drone footage as it gives a better idea of the works. The Shropshire Union canal society have just up dated their website to include the May work parties.
