  2. There was a very amusing thread in 2007, 'Falling in - what's your story', which you would now be able to read with new insight. Regards Steve
  3. Interesting method of tying up Regards Steve
  4. Sorry to be a bit slow contributing to this thread, Madcat, but we have the converted iron boat referred to by Pete Harrison, Glenfield. The PD2 fitted in the '70s is still in it and has propelled us round the system over the last 2 years without a hitch. It's a bit smoky on start up and if revved hard after idling in a lock but otherwise has a clean exhaust and adequate 'grunt' for our needs. It is still mated to a 3:1 Parsons gearbox. Sump drainage is via a pipe fitted to the drain plug orifice. I have some pics of it but Photobucket won't work just now. Regards SteveE
  5. Well I've come across a lot of bots in my time but this is a new one! Thanks for this advice, Lady Muck, and the particular ar*&hole (Canadian Health) who messaged me will just get deleted. SteveE
  6. What sort of Petter, Proper Job? Not off topic because we'll be moving our boat (with its PD2) to the Stainforth and Keadby in a year's time. SteveE
  7. It's not worth bothering about. If you're in the right, shred the notice; if you're not, move the boat. SteveE

  9. Do other countries have the same problem (not on towpaths) and, if not, why? SteveE
  10. I agree entirely but the real culprits in this are the lawyers and the courts. It is they who award compensation for people who fall on seaweed-covered slipways and scald themselves on water coming out of hot taps, etc, etc. The elfin safety industry is brought into play to prevent the sometimes considerable financial costs which are often incurred by those at the receiving end of this sort of bollocks thing.

  11. If you're not first timers you could look at www.braidbarboats.co.uk. The North Macclesfield and the peak Forest canals are lovely, and no locks. SteveE
  12. Have you found anyone suitable yet? SteveE
  13. Ours cost £300 a foot and we wouldn't swap it for any of these regardless of available money. SteveE

  15. So the ball ricochets into the cut and the pooch spears itself on something when it jumps in to retrieve it. So pretend to throw something but don't actually do so. The pooch will no doubt need counselling for subjective loss. So......... SteveE Just ignore it - unenforcible SteveE
