    Route advice

    2 years ago I exited at Keadby and travelled to Torksey. 2 weeks later, I reversed the route. I am single handed and on both occasions, I was the only boat moving onto the river. I asked each lockie if I should be waiting for a time when another boat was leaving, both said it wasn't necessary. I also asked both about VHF radio and both said I was okay with my phone. I'm not saying this is right, or that people should do it, just that the lockie's don't appear to be enforcing the bylaws.
  2. Nice to see the pics Antony, however, you should change the link on the original post as it send you back to the Canalworld page.

    Insurance 'Moan'

    My home insurance renewed on 1st November, I get it through Weslyan and get a good deal due to them working with teachers and retired teachers. On 4th November I got a call from them saying the insurer who I'd been with for 3 years with no claims have declined to insure my house. They have shopped around and found me another with the same cover, but costing £250 more! I decided to check around myself and it appears that most have blacklisted the HU5 postcode. We did flood back in 2007, but since then lots of flood alleviation schemes have been completed, or are nearing completion, it appears that many want to get out of insuring my house too!!

    Nahh, it's exciting buying things you've never had - I've led a very sheltered life you know 🙂

    I'm considering having a pram hood fitted to KenDorR, but that is something for the future. So, today my Brolly-mate arrived and guess what? It doesn't come with a brolly!! Now, believe it or not, I have never owned, or used a brolly in my 60 years of life. So, has anyone got thoughts and ideas for a type of brolly to use? I'm assuming I'll go for something like a golf brolly and saw this one on ebay https://www.ebay.co.uk/itm/Large-Golf-Umbrella-Automatic-Windproof-Vented-Canopy-Brolly-Black/143010730142?_trkparms=aid%3D111001%26algo%3DREC.SEED%26ao%3D1%26asc%3D20160908105057%26meid%3Dde8ae34648a14b3f9acfb9ee73ef4fca%26pid%3D100675%26rk%3D1%26rkt%3D15%26mehot%3Dlo%26sd%3D143010730142%26itm%3D143010730142&_trksid=p2481888.c100675.m4236&_trkparms=pageci%3Af9b39465-2bc8-11e9-a8d8-74dbd180b293|parentrq%3Ace3496441680ac3dc6003581ffe217b9|iid%3A1 Any thoughts? Thanks Kevin

    Small Gas Hob

    This is the one I've fitted https://www.ebay.co.uk/itm/NJ-Domino-G-Built-in-Gas-Hob-2-Burners-30-cm-Black-Glass-LPG-Gas-Regulator-Set-/173528582010?var=&hash=item28671c077a

    Small Gas Hob

    I've fitted one very similar this is very true so mine is fitted with the controls to the left hand side. If it is anything like mine, the auto ignition is very simple and works of an SP2 battery, so no need for any electrical installation.

    Jml plug in heater

    I decided to buy one of these https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=EoIABxXFziQ At only 400W it can be left on all night. It's silent and works very well. It is, however, a pain to set up!! I'm glad I've found the above video, it's much better than the instruction booklet!

    Possible Paypal scam

    Nope, and it's a good post to talk about so nobody else gets done either.

    Possible Paypal scam

    Already done 🙂

    Possible Paypal scam

    Just a heads up, I've received an email telling me my paypal account password has been re-set and giving me instructions on how to get in to my account. Firstly, they would never do this, secondly, my paypal account uses a yahoo email which doesn't include my name and this email was sent to my normal account which does use my name. If you ever get anything like this, DO NOT click on the link in the email message, but open your browser and get into your account that way. The link in the email WILL send you to a bogus site. Kevin

    I'm starting to consider this same problem, looking at something like this as my starting point.
