  2. This forum may be called canalworld but it is not just about narrowboats nor just about canals
  3. I hope not. In theory it has always been necessary to book Torksey and Cromwell but in the past you could just turn up. The 48hr requirement is new as is the inference that booking is mandatory. At Cromwell a lock keeper being on only 8am to 4pm in summer started as a Covid thing and has stuck.
  4. We will see how it goes. It does seem like booking will become a requirement rather than being advisory. To be honest I do usually plan tidal trips well in advance and with an eye on the tides but as you say dates have to be flexible, especially if coming up from the tidal side. I hope C&RT will be flexible.
  5. Not sure why 48hrs notice is now required at Cromwell and Torksey when 24hrs was previously okay . In the past you could just turn up .
  6. To the OP There are loads of miserable old gits on this forum.

  11. 20 Litres of Diesel can be delivered , but not necessarily at an attractive price
  12. I seems to me there are a lot of grumpy people on the canals. Put those who seem to do as they like and cause irritation together with those who are irritated and the entire population is well covered . I know someone who goes too fast but he is the first to complain if someone else passes too fast . Running engines falls into the same category as going too fast or too slow and other such minor offences .
  13. Would it be preferable to let the boat sink? Should bilges ot be dry except exceptionally?
  14. Is it not better to have reduced CO2 and particulates ? I don't think the exhaust will smell of chips.
  15. Does the BSS have any standards about oil coolers? I believe oil coolers usually use the coolant circuit.
