    Vandalised boat

    That stretch of the GU through Yiewsley is awful, if you look in my post history for around this time last year you'll see I posted asking for advice about a very similar situation where I came across a boat that had clearly been broken into. It was moored almost opposite from the entrance to the Slough arm. The only place I would ever moor round there is right next to the cctv cameras outside Tesco, if those moorings are full I just keep going! Edit;

    Boat sit wanted: mid Oct to end Nov

    You may be exactly what I've been looking for. I have been worried about the security of my pride and joy because I work away quite often. She's bright and airy, has excellent 360 degree views of the neighbouring waterway. Malibu is designed for two in a traditional wooden boat style. I'm going to be out of the country during Oct & Nov so if you would like to care for my baby, please get in touch and we can discuss expenses but these would be minimal. Pic attached.

    What's the strangest thing you've seen around the cut?

    Unfortunately I didn't take this pic, It was posted on Reddit and I thought it may be of interest here....

    Arcturus & Sirius.

    Cheers,I just had a look at their website, it say Arcturus is in the water & Sirius is in the yard but I don't know how recent that info is. There are also a few interesting old boats for sale on there. Might take the dog for a walk to Puttenham today and see if I can spot them.

    Arcturus & Sirius.

    Just woke up and turned on the tv to find "narrowboat afloat" on the Quest tv channel. It had an interesting segment on Arcturus & Sirius and it reminded me I haven't seen them for years. Are they still around? I did some googling but couldn't find any recent information about them.

    Boat appears to have been broken into.

    Cheers, just tried and got an answerphone. Will try again tomorrow. Should I go back and edit out the location? How do I remove the tags? I've been on the stretch directly outside Tesco for the past 10 days or so while I did some work on the boat and have had no problems but there are 8 CCTV cameras focusing on that 200 yard stretch and I've been on board apart from when walking the dog or popping to the shops. Unfortunately the other boater was moored further along out of view of the cameras. There are definitely plenty of undesirables around here, I would not be happy to leave my boat unoccupied without a doubt.
  14. I've just taken the dog for a walk and been past a boat that has been moored here (Yiewsley, GU) for around a week. In the bow well deck, the front security gate has been wrenched off and the door window broken above the Yale lock. I'm pretty certain it wasn't like that yesterday when I walked past. I gave a shout but it appears no one is on board. The boat's name is written in either Greek or Cyrillic letters which I am not able to reproduce here but it has Zhodino written in brackets in small letters underneath. It is about a 50ft blue trad with a large No3 painted towards the stern. If you are the owner or anyone knows them, could you let them know and that it is in an unsecured state.I'll keep an eye on it while I am still here but I'm moving on tomorrow. I've reported it to the police via 101 and they said they are going to send a unit down shortly.
