  1. Safety requirements for waterways license

    Certainly doesn't look like its had £1000 spent on it. No sign of any fire extinguishers which is a BSC fail for starters.
  2. Cheshire Ring - Which way?

    This is the agreement I've previously seen http://www.bridgewatercanal.co.uk/news/crtrecipricolagreement perhaps it was reviewed and is no longer in force?
  3. Cheshire Ring - Which way?

    I thought you needed one if returning on the Bridgewater within 28 days but have just looked at their site and I can no longer find any mention of it.
  4. Ready to buy any advice please

    Nobody is right in every case except SWMBO.
  5. Ready to buy any advice please

    If you haven't already I'd suggest you look at the youtube video blogs Journey with Jono and Cruising the Cut the former bought a sailaway a just over a year ago and gives a good idea of what's involved in bringing it up to scratch whereas the latter starts with looking to buy a used boat, purchasing it and gradually making alteration to suit his needs.
  6. Cheshire Ring - Which way?

    I'm also planning to complete the Cheshire Ring sometime this year. Question is travelling from Burscough should I buy a 7 day licence for the Bridgewater?
  7. Liverpool Link

    Old Dock tour is indeed very interesting http://www.liverpoolmuseums.org.uk/maritime/visit/old_dock_tours.aspx and free!!
  8. Liverpool Link

    Probably a bit more traffic when we visit in August
  9. Liverpool Link

    Thanks for that, I know the docks fairly well but couldn't see anything in the CRT literature about moving further through the system.
  10. Liverpool Link

    I've just booked passage through the Liverpool Link to moor at the Salthouse Dock for 7 days this summer. Whilst there is it possible to do a short sightseeing trip through to Brunswick Dock and back or does the boat have to remain static at its mooring until the day of departure?
  11. Mains charger

    Having read Seadogs post #14 I update my chargers software and now the Bluetooth connection works fine. Hurrah.
  12. Mains charger

    I have their Bluepower ip65 charger and the Bluetooth connection had worked intermittently when I first got it but now seems to have given up the ghost completely. Tried connecting it to phone and tablet with no success. Most probably a software or compatablility problem but I suppose it could be a dodgy charger.
  13. Looking for a new boat? This may suit you.

    The Springers of their day?
  14. RCR Engine inspection

    I was looking at this http://www.rivercanalrescue.co.uk/other-services/engine-inspections/ but the maintenance course seems more practical. Thanks for the quick responses.....now where's my chequebook
  15. I'm thinking of booking the River Canal Rescue engine inspection and service. Anyone here booked it in the past and is it worth £190? In future I'd like to do things such as oil and filter changes myself but I'd like to watch someone who knows what they're doing do it first!
