  1. The adhesive failed on a couple of mine after 20 years so I went to Caldwells of Wigan who told me that they don't use adhesive anymore so I bought some double sided adhesive tape off them. The catches that you show are the same as mine so Caldwells should stock them.
  2. Just need the Anderton stoppage sorting so that we can get through.
  3. As Tony said, more information is needed about where you are looking for etc.
  4. The Canal and River Trust website has now listed the booking form for anyone wanting a "Bridgewater Passage".
  5. You are worrying too much. You need prove that you have lights to pass the test. Mine have never been fitted to the boat. You must make your passage during daylight hours so you won't need them.
  6. Those are identical to mine Alan. They must be good if they are still making them.
  7. I bought a set to pass the "Certificate of Seaworthiness" but it was 2003 (I think) when we went from Salford Quays to Ellesmere Port. No idea where I got them from though.
  8. Alan de Enfield has posted details of the new agreement on the Pomona Lock Fees thread.
  9. This post cannot be displayed because it is in a forum which requires at least 10 posts to view.
  10. There might be a few boats doing it this year due to the stoppage at Anderton.
  11. Got mine from TW Marine at Furness Vale and covered the engine deckboards to deaden the engine noise. Different types are available and I have since topped up the silver covering with a roll of silver tape. I glued it down and then screwed in repair washers to hold it in place.
  12. Wigan flight opened at the weekend and volunteers were assisting boats up and down the flight.
  13. Noticed this morning that there was a narrowboat moored between Poolstock 1 and 2 locks. This is the pound that is usually low due to a leak. I hope that it is moving soon.
  14. I just clip mine on when mooring up and remove them when cruising.
  15. It is great to know that there are some very reputable breeders around if you know where to look. I suspect that the demand for dogs due to people being at home during lockdown has a lot to do with the price increases. I hope that everything goes well and that the dogs get on.
  16. I've just watched a video of the vlogger Robbie Cumming going down the boat lift enroute for bottom blacking at Northwich. No idea when this was though.
  17. BW would have cleared a channel next to the towpath for boats to pass whilst making the repairs to the off side.
  18. But it is shut from Monday for 2 weeks.
  19. I shudder to think of how long the closure would be for a paint job.
  20. Pollution hotline no 0800807060 is the number I have used in the past.
  21. Could someone provide a link to the latest news about paddle boarding etc on the Bridgewater Canal Company website as some of it may be of interest to CWDF members. Thank you
