  1. Ernest Thomas tug Enterprise had a 5 cylinder Gardner installed when converted to a tug
  2. IRC I seem to remember this photo before and there was a thought it was Pisces
  3. I remember going up to Hazelhurst in 1968 bow hauling the last half mile due to the weed. Happy Days on the then remainder waterways
  4. I think by the style and construction there is a link between Jasmine 1 and Clevanda . I have no facts that this is the case to base this theory. I beleive it was John Humphries who owned Clevanda adding a different spelling to the confusion.
  5. Hi Caron, As Max Sinclair wrote I remember a "Jasmine" at the Stourbridge Rally in 1962 that was wooden, did he build the steel boat to replace it?
  6. I am pretty sure Graham Parker was working for Malcolm Braine in 1967. I am not sure of the exact year he started out on his own
  7. I seem to remember that John Stothert had an involvement with Sea Steel at Nassington when he moved out of Norbury
  8. Large Windlass Size which we had never encountered before
  9. One of my families "Amusing, Embarrassing" moments was having cruised from the North West via the Coventry Canal arrived at Braunston Bottom lock to be confronted by G.U. paddle gear !!! Reversing out of the chamber and going back to Blue Line to get GU windlasses must have given the pairs tied below the lock a good laugh!
  10. My Father had a copy of a similar map in 1960 and used it to plan a trip to the Thames in 1961 from the North West.. I cannot confirm edition Number etc . as if it still exists it will be with a set of B.W. Cruising guides in a long unseen corner of the attic. One of my best memories is coming through Hawkesbury in what I assume was the pit holidays and pairs tied both sides out of the stop lock . which seemed to a young boys eyes to go on for ever.
  11. Looks like the Toll End Branch is open om the BCN
  12. Cardiff's canal quarter - how it looked in the past, what's there now and the exciting future - Wales Online No plans to go up the valley
  13. I found the white band useful for spotting moored boats when moving in the dark.
  14. Short You Tube Video of one part that hasn't been built over in the city. A paddle gear has been left
