  3. I came across this service a while ago and registered. I have not had to use it yet.
  4. There is the Llangollen Railway which the kids should enjoy, especially if the steam trains are running. Also, the horse drawn boats do trips towards Horseshoe Falls. You are allowed 48 hours mooring in Llangollen basin or on the towpath at a cost of £6 per night (payable at the horse drawn boats shop).
  5. The Narrowboat inn is canalside and there is only one mooring outside but ample mooring rings on the towpath. We found Lion Keys expensive and just had soup and a drink and left. Moorings are canalside or on the jetties. Always enjoyed a stop and meal at the canalside Poachers Pocket. Mooring rings on the towpath.

  7. We have dog sat my daughter's Red Fox Labrador for the last 5 years whilst she is at work. First day we took him out on the boat he fell in at Dutton stop lock and then 2 hours later he fell in at Saltersford tunnel. A few days later he fell in the River Weaver but since then he has been ok and walks across the lock gates after me. Plays with the kids, grandkids and great grandson without any problems.
  8. I have not used Dutton myself as my boat is done every 2 years at the boat club where I am a member.
  9. Subject to funding the lift was to close for 12 to 18 months in 2022. What about Dutton Dry Dock near Preston Brook tunnel.
  10. To get a green flag you are probably tipped off when inspections are due to take place giving you time to do a major clean up.
  11. Has anyone seen a full width cut being done yet?
  12. I think that they will always mow a central strip for walkers etc.
  13. I seem to to remember that when it reopened we paid £30 for a season ticket as we were based at Jalsea marine for the summer.
  14. I have yet to see a full width cut removing the season's growth, including saplings so it is obvious that this work is never done and CaRT do not check. An example is the Trent and Mersey Canal from Preston Brook to Middlewich.
  15. I am a satisfied Moonraker user. They also seem to be the choice of most hire companies.

    Or moor at Sale and take the tram to Manchester.
  17. If you ever go to Garmisch Partenkirchen in Germany visit the Wankbahn tourist attraction.
  18. 6 o clock in the morning for me is the perfect time as it is so peaceful and boating until 10 o clock at night is enjoyable every now and then.
  19. I always turn off my starter battery but leave the leisure ones on as my bilge pump connects to them.
  20. What about Venetian Marina which is a couple of miles from Barbridge.
  21. Have a look at the Roving Canal Traders Association website, you may find someone who makes them on there.
  22. There is still NO CaRT assisted passage on the flight and there has not been for quite a while but as Rob-M says have a look at the wiganflightcrew Facebook page and put your intended boat movement on there. They are genuine unpaid volunteers who have nothing to do with CaRT but if they are available tend to have someone at top and bottom locks at 9.00am in the morning.
