    Transferring ownership

    probably suspended due to someone fraudulently transferring a few boats into made-up names a few weeks back shortly after that data breach they had. coincidence?

    Please Hoot

    if short of space it was advisable to use one of the smaller breeds, like a Teat

    Recently, when approaching Bridge 39 on the Shroppie (you know, THAT bridge), I gave a good toot on the horn and heard no reply so proceeded albeit at tickover so the inlaws could take the obligatory pics. To my surprise I met another boat nosing in, so I promptly backed away to let him through. We exchanged pleasantries as we passed and then he asked "Out of interest, did you hear my horn?", I replied I hadn't and did he hear mine, to which he replied he hadn't either. Can only summise we had tooted at exactly the same time and for exactly the same duration. The only other explanations are either the geography blocking the sound from being carried, or that he was a big fat liar 🤣

    Odd enquiry

    if it was mine i would, but she’s almost 13, 5’8” and very self-conscious so things have to be “just so”, its hard enough to get her off the boat and working locks as it is thanks for all the above suggestions, gives me something to try and my daughter does like a trip to The Range (usually because she comes home with a load of art supplies).

    Odd enquiry

    I know this is a bit odd and i'm unsure where to put this thread but figured here was as good a place as any, so.... does anyone have any top tips for removing lock winding gear grease from clothing, namely waterproofs? last time out my daughter managed to get some on her brand new (yellow) coat whilst crossing the lock gate and trying to avoid the gate paddle gear the thick of it was hastily wiped off with tissue but some remains and I now fear its set for life, unless you know different? right, there you go, i'll now await the sage/sarcastic advice

    I Pads and Android (In)compatibility

    you could also use Dropbox (www.dropbox.com) to store all sorts of files and access from any device that has the app/program. don't be conned into paying though, the free Basic package is all you need. and if you feel generous use this link and we both get 500mb extra storage free, I won't be offended if you don't though

    what if you manage to combine the two and produce a beer sandwich? would that be allowed on the grounds of outstanding ingenuity?

    Silly hour boaters

    we were passed by one at 11:30pm-ish, i wouldnt have minded but they had a radio blaring away which was way louder than their engine. i quite fancy trying night cruising, but the rest of the crew are dead against it
