  3. My boat had a marine mortgage when she was built has all numbers and weight welded on the hull, when I enquired to lloyds they sent me the paperwork for her it has name of builder and original owners details and amount the mortgage was for. They also asked if I would like to keep her registered for money's I declined that part.

  7. Thanks I will decide which route when I get closer to split, I'd like to do the sour but the weather may change my mind.
  8. Thanks Alan, we have three anodes down each side and the sides are not under cut at baseplate so it all counts were not due out of water yet so I don't want the expense of crane just to grind them off because I will have to black as well ( as a matter of corse ) so just inquiring about widths.
  9. Now fully retired we've decided to move our N/B to Sawley Marina and cruise that part of the country. Our beam is 6' 10" with straight sides plus anodes so the we are probably 7' 2" ish Chould there be any tight spots in locks on any of the routes from the south. TIA.
