  1. I made a mistake with mixing and have spent a while flushing with plain water . Then I am going to use ethylene glycol which is most likely what older engines would have used .
  2. I agree it would not be good for crops grown for fuel to compete with food crops . I understand HVO uses spent cooking oil as well as residue from crops that would otherwise go to waste . Providing that is all managed responsibly that is fine. The volume available may well be an issue . However I do think the use of HVO in boats seems like a good fit .
  3. I have paperwork with my boat. But it's a sea going boat and this is normal. Remarkably it seems more common for narrowboats to have no paperwork. But you must be careful as boats have been known to be advertised by scammers. There will be some evidence of ownership such as the owner may have kept his receipts/certificates for insurance or canal licences or can show you his C&RT license records online for example ? If no such evidence is available walk away.

  14. If no one had booked 48hrs in advance that may explain why no one was there . The flood was at 10:15 according to the river gauge .

  16. It was the same around here but eventually the lawnmowers were brought out . ''No Mow May'' was possibly the reason?
  17. I feel sure there is something in that. The lock keeper at West Stockwith indicated he was being asked to carry out other duties. At the same time Cromwell has not been manned over summer hours as it was in the past regardless of whether boats were booked. Presumably this Passage has to be booked 48 hrs in advance at Cromwell and Torksey which presumably means there could be no one on duty if no boats are booked. Or the lock keeper will be there only long enough to operate the lock for the boats that have booked. I suspect none of the full time tidal lock keepers are happy . .
  18. Have you not noticed . In the UK the breaking of rules is a commonplace activity.
  19. Intolerance of the activities of others seems to be common among boat owners. C&RT may be overwhelmed by reports.

  21. Quite a few years ago I found a bunch of keys - dozens of keys - at Sykehouse Lock. Turned out to be someone from C&RT who had been there earlier in the day . Also left my keys in a waterpoint which was probably 5 or 6 years ago . They were found before I had missed them and after a phone call found they were already being returned to the marina where I keep my boat on another boat . In fact keys reached me before they reached the marina. I still have the marinas name tag on the same keyring.
