    Channelglaze or Caldwell?

    Ours are Caldwells and were fitted new in 1999. I re-attached a catch that came off last year and a few years ago I bought a roll of the hopper window "foam rubber" from Caldwells and did all the windows again. Other than that - no problems.

    Help! we need a mooring

    As far as I can see the Bridgewater Canal Company list has all the available moorings including marinas, boat clubs and private moorings.

    Middlewich Branch breach - Shropshire Union

    Perhaps the Shropshire Union Canal Society will put some in like they have done elsewhere.

    Manchester house boat row.

    There is an interesting story in the Manchester Evening News about a new house boat that has been told to leave the New Islington marina as it does not meet the criteria of a boat Can anyone provide a link please.

    Anyone on the Llangollen

    Due to the Middlewich breach and for the first time in 20 years we have not spent a week or two on the Llangollen canal. Always enjoy it and you cannot tar all boaters with the same brush.

    Lymm Marina usually have some widebeams but I am not sure if they fit them out.

    A Tale of Several TVs, well DVDs actually

    We bought an Avtex in a "freaky Friday" sale a few years ago. We do not have an inverter and run it on 12 volts. In areas with good reception we usually get over 100 channels although some may be duplicated.

    Should Magnet Fishermen be licensed

    It is a pity that CaRT do not take the opportunity to remove the scrap from the towpath before someone throws it back in again to foul a boaters propeller. A missed opportunity I think.

    Middlewich Branch breach - Shropshire Union

    The next excuse is that it is too dry to puddle clay.
