  2. 're Bar Keepers Friend Which one to remove water stain on wood on narrowboat front wooden door. Bar Keeper Stain remover Or Bar Keeper Cleanser Thanks
  3. Hi, I have a centre line which was on the narrowboat when I purchased it. It is quite thick but inflexible. It is difficult to use to put a knot in when securing the boat. I have since purchased new ropes but would like to try and recover this one as a spare. Does anyone have any idea how to get the rope soft and flexible? Thanks
  4. Machpoint005 Thanks I will give it a try.
  5. Hi Anyone have contact details for a oven in a narrowboat in greater Manchester area? The stove is Stove New Home 500 DIS, repair required the gas comes out when the know is turned on the grill and oven. On the hob we have to push in the knob and twist it before the gas comes out. Thanks
  6. James How did you get on, did you resolve it?

  8. Hi Lysander Thanks for that. I am looking for what solution I should use to clean and degrease the sump area? Ideally I want to paint the area afterwards. Thanks
  9. Having read this thread. Planning to use oil and diesel pads to soak up oil or diesel in my boat bilge. Wet vac to vacuum up the water. I will then use a sponge on the end of a grab to clean unreachable area by hand. I have cleaned the reachable parts of the engine using Wonder Wipes. What decreasing solution should I use on the sponge? Thanks
  10. https://canalrivertrust.org.uk/news-and-views/our-campaigns/share-the-space-our-towpath-code CRT safe use of the towpath link. It would seem their towpath policy is everyone gives way to slowest person or animal. I personally don't have an issue with it. Anyone know of guidance for mooring a narrowboat on CRT website? .i.e using mooring pins
  11. RichardN Just read a bit of your blog. What's the reason for changing the anodes every two years? Resently had our boat out of the water and advised they didn't need changing!
