  1. Quite a few people made some very valid points - but perhaps if you were a little more forth coming with what you wanted to achieve that would have given people a bit more to work with, "much better" is a tad vague by anybody's standards. You only stayed to interact with people for a couple of posts and then left for the rest of the week, did you expect to throw the question out there and then come back a week later and have all the work done for you.
  2. I would have loved to live on a boat as a kid - but as a teenager it would've been a bit hit or miss whether my mother and/or I made it out alive. 🤣
  3. I was just going to say this - I'm sure I read it on here but I now can't find it, that one family had a narrowbeam narrowboat and short butty that they towed. The parents and youngest child slept on the main boat and the teens had the smaller butty as hang out and bedrooms. If I recall it worked out cheaper than a widebeam and saved the sanity of both parents and teens. The butty gets a discount on their licence I think because they don't have an engine. Worth a think about anyway.
  4. To be honest I don't know, other than it was a little more permanent but it would give you the option to separate them ones in the blue moon that you needed to, but it was more of a question than a statement really. The whole set up looks interesting but confusing to me. Maybe it makes better sense if seen in real life.
  5. I saw a black widebeam called BLACK ROSE on the duck the other day and I did a right double take because for a second my first very surprised thought was that it was yours. But it was a different boat all together.
  6. Quite - it's sounds heavenly.
  7. Are you the only person with your postcode? If people living out side Britain wanted to sign the petition then yes they could just look up a postcode and "borrow" it. If you want this petition to be a true and genuine thing then it will be, if you want it to be a false thing rigged by Russian hackers than that's what it'll be for you - the WHOLE of this thread is a prime example of that. I would be as blind as a bat and delusional if I thought for one minute that people outside Britain weren't signing this, they may be Brits that couldn't vote in the referendum because they weren't living here at the time or they might be dishonest in their intentions but at 4,392,160 I doubt it's much other than what it really is, but I'm not bothered either way if others think it poison or unicorn farts, to me it just is.
  8. Before they go off to work you mean - could be. Within the laws of physics anything is possible but as I'm boringly unemotional about things I tend to believe in Occam's razor whether I want to agree with it or not.

  10. In the last couple hours 200,000 people* have signed that revoke article 50 petition, and 15 minutes ago the top story on the Beeb was "Thousand march in London for a second referendum" with the opening paragraph saying tens of thousands were actually marching, now they just up dated that story to say hundreds of thousands are marching. What mental times we live in. Oh and the turn out to see Nigel Farage - 200 in a pub carpark........ *The total for that petition has reached 4,366,791 signatures but if you want to sign it you need to have a valid British postcode.
  11. Are they actually welded or are they just braced - the metal strip at the stern look like it could be removable and the strip at the bows looks wooden, a bit like a scaffolding plank.
  12. Took me ages to work out what that petition thing was but once I did I was a bit mesmerised by how quickly it was gaining momentum. It's now at 4,152,000 and this, I believe, is only its third day. So just incase people don't know what I'm on about. https://petition.parliament.uk/petitions/241584
  13. Just having a little trawl through the Beeb online and found this, it's a coupe of days old so some may have seen it already. Headline reads - Prodigy's Keith Flint mural in Peterborough 'iconic' https://www.bbc.co.uk/news/uk-england-cambridgeshire-47654005
