    Marcellus

    Impressed you know the date!! We see Marcellus regularly and still have a very soft spot for her as she was our first "proper" boat.

    Marcellus

    That would be me then! Looking good and pretty much as she did when we "saved" her from her previous life as Marcel with the help of Andy Russell☺️

    Wood Burner Advice Please

    Too big and don't buy a wood burner - I think you will probably have got the message by now😉

    Oil pressure issues

    Understood but no end float detectable at all and using Morris SAE 30 - I do think the main issue here was the faulty gauge and then the partially blocked piping which was actually quite bad

    Yet another royal baby

    Its amazing what a hip replacement can do or perhaps it was just his suits.

    Unusual windlass? (photos)

    I think the Fullers are putting together a museum collection of old windlasses if you want a good home for it...……………...

    Off Round The Corner Without A Care

    The southern GU etc is simply an alternative living housing estate these days and no-one is doing anything about controlling it - v sad - as said its not everyone but it is a high percentage.

    Good floor coverings

    B&Q carpet tiles are great we have used them for years as they are very tough and bitumen backed

    13/10/2018 - Major outage

    Agreed, in the grand scheme of things it isn't that important------------------ well done to all concerned. It will give me an opportunity to "bump" my roof boxes for sale price reduction again😂

    My thoughts exactly ……………….given the project is a Joint Venture with CRT as one of the partners when the sales imperative demands (which it most certainly will) I'm sure this boat will be used in any way possible to drum up sales and those of us at the bottom of the food chain wont be able to influence it in any way nor I suspect will CRT who at best will be conflicted and at worst will be supportive (in renewing the "permit") but not publicly.

    No consent will be given for permanent cruising use in the centre of Birmingham for any additional wide beams. Having looked after commercial boating in Birmingham for around 12 years, in my view, I would say we are now at capacity for passenger carrying boats in the centre of the City. To me its quite clear from the above that he is only talking about commercial craft...……………………….. others may feel by implication this separation keeps the door open for residential craft who knows but I don't think that's his remit as he signs himself as "Business Boating Manager"

    Here is the further "clarification" from CRT ...…………………. "That's what the appliant has advised. No consent will be given for permanent cruising use in the centre of Birmingham for any additional wide beams. Having looked after commercial boating in Birmingham for around 12 years, in my view, I would say we are now at capacity for passenger carrying boats in the centre of the City."

    Reply from CRT received this morning...……………………………………….. "Please be assured that this application went through the normal channels for approval and the decision to approve was based on certain key factors. The main two factors being this is most definitely a temporary arrangement until March 2019 and consent has only been given until then, and the fact that due to major works taking place to Broad Street Bridge in preparation for the tram extension by Midlands Metro Alliance, the navigation under Broad Street Bridge will be closed from January 2019 until the middle of March 2019 therefore the impact on other craft will be minimal as very little traffic will be heading down past Brindley Place. The mooring will be outside the Sea Life Centre therefore offering the best visibility from all directions and the boat will make a limited number of journeys from there around Icknield loop and back so not navigating extensively. We have also required that for any trips an experienced local qualified skipper is in charge of the boat. From March the intention is that the craft will be located on a fixed permanent mooring in Icknield Loop until the whole development project is completed. I hope this helps you understand more about our decision but please feel free to give me a call if you wish." I have asked for clarification that it wont be cruising after March 2019
