    New Kedian side hatch

    The new side hatch looks really great, this is something I plan to have done to my boat this year. Wonder if you would be happy to share some info on the work, maybe in a PM if that works better. Time-scales. Flexibility in design options and of course apx costs. Would also appreciate Martins contact details. Cheers,

    Leed Liverpool trip plan

    Hi Arthur, wise move to avoid the Huddersfield Narrow. I live very close to the canal, as lovely as the scenery is and I love walking it, sooo many locks and the canal suffered for long periods of closure this season due to low water. Although CART is, I believe, proposing some major works at Sparth Resivoir, which feeds the canal, to address the low water issue. Have fun

    I have memories of sailing from Oban down the West coast to Falmouth and then across to Le Harve, on a 55ft Nicholson yacht a lifetime ago. As we left Oban we ran into a force 5 gusting to chucking-up. Whilst I love the imagery, serenity in the video, struggling to reconcile it with the terrors of the deep we experienced those first days, I was offered and took a place as crew couple of years later, Portsmouth to Gib, happy days experience, may have something to do with a particularly lovely lass I got to know on the trip. This is not meant to be the start of a war stories saga, just saying.

    Yelverton Marina

    I will be moving my 60 ft NB across to Grand Union in June and considering leisure Morring's at Yelverton Marina. I have spoken with them on the phone and looked at their website, all looks good. I prefer a Marina in the countryside, logistically it's where I need to be. I would be interested in feedback experience from any members who have stayed at this Marina or any alternative suggestions. I will visit before I commit. Many thanks, Jon

    Narrowboat at sea adventure

    Wouldn't surprise me if he was aiming for the skipper!
  15. But it looks like it so can! just been reading Maplin, one of my favourite shops for all things electrical, that I can't remember the name of, but they can, are fighting to hold off going into administration. I think a petition needs to be raised and a march on No 10 organised, why do we need to save financial institutions if there is nowhere to spend your money Can we send a hat around and save the day,
