  1. Who is Roach? Your dog? Or a fellow boater?
  2. Can anyone suggest where I could get a replacement cover board for the engine hole on my Semi-Trad?
  3. The shortest canoe that I have is 5.2m
  4. I don't know. You could always ask them. The worst that could happen is they might call you a punt!
  5. Just join the UK canoeing governing body - British Canoeing. An individual membership licenses you for all UK waters. https://www.britishcanoeing.org.uk/news/2020/waterway-licence-explained
  6. Lough Erne is a massive lake. I am not sure if I would be comfortable on it in a narrowboat. But the Balinamore-Ballyconnel (Shannon/Erne) canal would be a good place for a canal boat. Though given Britain's mighty political upheaval it will soon have an international border across it.
  7. I have one of those permanently on my hook-up point. But I do not use it to power a second boat. Whenever I leave my mooring I leave the splitter behind. Why? Because I got totally fed up with the Meter-Macs system. Normally, when I unplug, Meter-Macs automatically disconnects my account. And on my return I have to key in my details at the master panel. BUT, the re-connection system is hopeless. I can key my details in 10, 15, 20 times and it fails over and over. So if I leave the splitter plugged in the system thinks I am still there and I avoid the whole painful process. have moaned repeated
  8. Same issue here. I think it sources the maps from OpenStreetMaps and that connection is broken. I would think that can be easily fixed.
  9. The most interesting thing about this thread is the willingness some people have to become overtly aggressive and attacking. The new Britain.
  10. Are you a troll? The wealth of a nation is finite. But the distribution is the product of policy. If one man has £10m to blow on a picture... Best not to be offensive when offence is not given (Left wing loon). Conversation is informative when you avoid extremism. Del Amitri phrased it much better than I could... Computer terminals report some gains in the values of copper and tinWhile American businessmen snap up Van GoghsFor the price of a hospital wing
  11. I run a business in the UK. And I pay more Corporation Tax than... Starbucks, Amazon, MacDonalds... and essentially every UK business big enough to get away with an overseas HQ. Any business that pays £1 in Corporation Tax pays more than these companies. All the businesses that you and I pay into. But not your local corner shop, your independent restaurant, your family firm. And unless you fell for the lies, we know that the British ‘elite’ is trying desperately to dodge the new European laws against such immoral tax dodging. But it seems most people fell for that one!
  12. The person who pays £10m for the Banksy has to get the money from somewhere. Today, he mostly gets it by avoiding taxes. And people who avoid paying their just taxes deprive the society that they live in of the funds it needs to function. So yes, the folks who use NHS and not Gold BUPA loose out because some greed merchant has deprived society of his contribution and pissed it on a Banksy instead,
  13. It doesn't say that more boats are being built, just that the price of those being built is at an all time high. It could be the concentration of wealth into small groups of super-rich. Which of course happens at the expense of ordinary people.
  14. Opening the top gates with the boat was normal practice during the commercial days. It still is for some.
