  1. Have a look on the Towpathtreks website which has lots of advice.
  2. I was advised to lower my carbon monoxide alarms by my boat safety man.
  3. I cut mine with a Stanley knife taking care to cut straight.
  4. Are you aware that Boothstown to Parbold would only take about 9 hours?
  5. We use an Adapt It 2-3 pin plug - 12 volt cigarette lighter (from chandlers/caravan shops) with a Ring Mini Inverter 12 volt (from Screwfix no 88988 £24.99). We use it for charging mobile phones and kindles.
  6. Did you wait for the boat to wind or use the lock as it was ready for you?
  7. I live in Wigan and am struggling to answer your questions. As Nicknorman suggested moor in the pound with the dry dock and then walk through the Trencherfield Mill car park on to Wallgate and turn right towards the town. The only place I can suggest you look at is Wigan Parish Church. The Wigan Pier site is being redeveloped at the moment so I would just sail through slowly and have a look.
  8. Lymm Cruising Club moorings at Agden are the other side of Agden Bridge and run to Lymm marina.
  9. I have no idea but they look basic. Try the Bridgewater Canal Company website under boating for mooring locations and then ring them for details of facilities.
  10. There are 2 sets of moorings at the Olde No 3. The ones near the water point are restricted to 48 hours and the ones from the small gate and heading towards Agden Bridge are Bridgewater Canal Company moorings.
  11. Lymm Cruising Club don't allow wide beams or liveaboards
  12. Try and get the name and number of the boat and report it to CaRT and also to the police if you think that he is a danger to anyone.
  13. Someone has been living there since the pub closed probably to deter vandals until someone else takes over.
  14. The marina is finished and lots more houses have been built. The Nevison pub is on the same side of the canal as the marina and is a 5 minute walk.
