  1. 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
  2. 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!
  3. Not on the boat at the moment. On the boat I have a cutting out of the towpath paper. It has photo's of steel hull effected by micro corrosion. I beleve it shows itself as orange growth and when you press it it's soft. I believe it states the only was to kill / remove it from the hull is to grit blast. Then use a ?? Acid on the hull.
  4. How do you know it is microbial induced corrosion?
  5. Today I spoke with another boater 're putting Orange wrapping on pegs in the towpath. He suggested a number of boaters were being sued by cyclist who had come into contact with their pegs in the towpath. Does anyone know of facts of this being true or is it a towpath myth? Thanks for your replies
  6. Thanks for the reply. If anyone passing could post a photo which would be helpful.
  7. Swanley Bridge Marina will organise your boat to be grit blasted. Also on site and work alongside the Marina. Danny of D&J Engineering will two coat your hull including the base plate. Danny does welding work including replating the hull if required. Sally will paint the upper body work with two pack.
  8. Hi Where is the secret one at Butts Bridge? If it is in the Marina each time I pass it there is a rope across the enterance. How do you get to use there services?
  9. Anyone moored facing or near Bridgewater Marina ?
  10. Hi Are there ground mooring rings on the towpath at Sale Bridge on the Bridgewater Canal? Has anyone moored there overnight? Has anyone who has moored there had any issues? Thanks
