  1. Regarding displaying the name of the boat. It's my understanding that the Thames Authority require all vessels to display the Name and Reg' number clearly on the vessel.
  2. No problem, Kildwick ceased trading due to a divorce. Contact https://strumpetandtrollop.com/ They'll sort you out no worries.😀
  3. The same way they knew about roses and castles I guess 😀
  4. If, like me, you have been involved in boats & boating for many years then I feel there is a general increase in 'loutish' behavior. However, having been involved in Boat Clubs in the early 80's drinking and boating were synonymous with enjoyment. There's a huge difference between the canals, especially the narrow ones & the wider rivers, estuary & sea where basic knowledge seamanship is a prerequisite. So it's not just you 😉
  5. Ha, I'm reliably informed I'm a senile old git and it's canalplan.org . I hate getting old
  6. Am I going mad? the other day I was on the Jim Shead excellent website and used a trip planner to map out my forthcoming journey now I cannot find the route planner. Please can someone point me to the elusive web page(s).

  8. I thought 'Universal Credit' was a benefit paid to those in the UK who qualified for whatever reason, I didn't realise the amount paid out depended on where you lived!
  9. Yes a bit overkill and sods law dictates that I would probably close it then forget to open it again and complain that the burner won't light ? BUT I'm sorely tempted to buy it just in case I ever need it.
  10. Does anyone moor or know the Shropshire Union Canal (Middlewich Branch) down towards the junction with the main canal at Barbridge. I'm looking for general info as to general levels of security for unattended boats etc.
  11. Thank you for all the suggestions, I have ordered 4 different solutions & just remembered I actually have an old brass mushroom vent in my shed. I'm not too worried about water ingress whilst in locks as I've never really had problems with water coming in open portholes & now I know to be wary of this situation occurring I'll carefully monitor the air intake vents.
  12. Thats the kind of thing but I'd really like just a round 'vent' as I have some nice brass cowles kicking around that will keep the rain out ?
  13. Yes that's basically it Again yes the burner is 'room-sealed' air is drawn in from outside & exits up the flue. I don't really want to have a pipe all the way up to a mushroom vent on the roof.
  14. I am looking to connect a flexible 4" diameter stainless flexi pipe from my burner air-intake to the steel cabin side but cannot find a simple solution. I'm not worried about the external cowl/rain-deflector side of things just a simple way of connecting said pipe to the cabin side. I'm suffering brain-freeze, please help .
  15. What size stilson wrench do you use? I only carry a small one on board but I'd rather be prepared for all eventualities.
