  1. I drain everything including the calorifier, not always easy on some boats.
  2. Well I guess that's another new member well pissed off because some didn't like their first posting. I am surprised anyone joins if they lurk a bit first and see how new members get treated
  3. Good for you, You have a bag full but are happy to go the extra mile to collect a few more. I wish you every success
  4. Didn't most motors have a thing called a butty obscuring the tunnel bands from astern?
  5. Wasn't that something to do with joint funding? Now the signs they are fitting today 50 yards before the winding hole telling you there is one,
  6. We use to use deionised water on out generators but they ran vented cooling systems so often required topping up
  7. Lots of boats have the base plate sticking out at the bows, ask @maffi mushkila
  8. She appeared on a canal program once, think it was called Waterworld or similar and said she was thinking of buying a Narrowboat
  9. I must remember to keep well away from you.
  10. The only thing I can say to that is that the committees are made from people who are prepared to stand, if younger people dont stand then things dont change, If you just dump the old guard there is no one there. Our branch closed down because we were all old buggers and stood down. One good thing that appears to have happened is that when they appoint trustees they are now looking for some expertise. I was hoping things would have changed more with the latest chairman.
  11. Just like all the people with dogs or kids walking past your boat or the ones at the lock who say do you live onboard and where do you come from.
  12. It may help if you post a photo of what you are trying to modify we have gone from outboard to wide beam. Lets see what is already there
