    Forth and Clyde Closure

    Well there's a surprise. Just heard Leamington Bridge now shut for 3 months

    Not finding it (admit I'm not that good with Facebook stuff). Maybe change it to Lowland Canals neglected

    Nope. Quite a few boats including myself were down at the Kelpies last month Union is steady with boats, private and hire. I certainly plan to be on the F&C next year when the bridges are reopened. There's certainly positivity up here, hopefully that's reciprocated with the guys at the Glasgow end.

    I've got a metal 'tractor' seat on an adjustable stand bought on eBay. Got a semi trad so can sit it forward end of the tiller. The seat is heavy so sat on a rubber mat it doesn't shift or slide

    Check your Throwlines

    Interesting line in the report: The foreign suppliers identified so far assemble the throw bags using components from further suppliers It does't look as though RIBER had much quality control in place and limited record of a supply chain (to be fair I doubt they're alone on that front)

    Wee beasties

    Could they be Blandford flies. Can remember them from my younger days, they were vicious buggers

    Thanks Iain. Unfortunately on some of the vertical edges rocks from the side have fallen in, some are visible, some aren't (scout hut at the visitor mooring at Bridge 48 being one). I'm starting to get my eye in and not pulling quite so far in when passing(every day's a school day)

    Union is no better (at least F&C is wide), in many places you can't get within 2ft of the bank without running aground on rocks which have fallen in from the canal wall

    Couldn't put it on as using my phone. Have trouble with cut and paste at the best of times?

    Email sent out by SC. Also on their website

    Hopefully no property development or new marinas. They've publicly been told what the money is meant for and not to be used in the way they have previously (I'm sure there are other folk on this forum with a better knowledge of that than me)

    Alan, This is their annual grant from Government apparently, my understanding is the Transport Minister is reminding them what it has to be spent on. So keeping the Canal running rather than property speculation. The letter mentions releasing it in sections so would assume if they think SC are taking the piss again they can withhold payments. If nothing else it's public acknowledgement from the Government that they realise SC haven't been doing their job and are holding them to account.
