    CRT adverts

    Not so sure about the maintenance bit considering all the problems this year on the cut. Lack of water, broken paddles, gates, lack of dredging,continuous Marple flight stoppages despite the money they have thrown at it. Not met many boaters impressed by CRT this year...in fact only spoken to one who was and he was a friend of the top man, Richard Parry

    CRT adverts

    Heard CRT advertising that they run canals, on local radio in Kidsgrove the other day...so thats how they spend our money is it? Telling people that they live near a canal. Is that so that people can decide to drown themselves if they so please..not much chance with water levels so low

    low water on T&M at Middlewich

    There was volunteer at the 3 locks in Middlewich and he reported it but no water was sent down...we had to move it ourselves from further up. Now in Wheelock and hoping that water will be sent down from Kidsgrove.

    low water on T&M at Middlewich

    Just to let you know that we took all day from big lock at Middlewich to Wheelock as it was a wind up trying to get into the locks especially at locks 69 and 70. The pound between Rumps Lock and 69 is very very low...be warned. Most boaters are now travelling south and very little traffic going North....for obvious reasons. Rained for a few hours but not likely to make much difference.

    empty pound on T & M

    got down from lock 69 to Middlewich this am but there will be a queue for boats going up..how long is anyones guess. Do NOT recommend going through the pound between locks 70 and 69 without finding out if there is enough water

    empty pound on T & M

    Latest news is that maybe we can move tuesday or wednesday. Hire boat has managed to get past lock 69 going up after a boater emptied lock 68 to help fill the pound enough.

    empty pound on T & M

    Just to let you know that the pound is too low to pass between locks 69 and 70 , south of Middlewich on T&M and there are now 6 boats waiting to go south and 3 to go North......could be a long wait as after 4 hours of moving water its still too low

    Real Ash T&G flooring

    Wotever, are you saying that damp is bad for bamboo or are you referring to oak? Thought about bamboo myself as it looks good ad could be cheaper than the others

    Real Ash T&G flooring

    Nice one, thanks. I am looking for reclaimed as it happens and will keep my eyes open on ebay and other sites. Was yours T&G ? Did you insulate under it before you laid it ?

    Real Ash T&G flooring

    Great advice, thanks. I am not much of a fan of engineered wood because it has MDF in it doesnt it? I might be wrong of course, and I know that it cheaper but how is its resistance to dog paws and scratching by said mutts?
