  1. I got shouted at for going too slowly past a moored boat today 😁 I think some people just like to moan and shout no matter what
  2. The water is about 6 inches down from the top of the concrete currently - i'll be here for as long as i deem necessary - no sign of numpty yet
  3. Oh no he's not yes he is 😁
  4. on the visitor moorings between the weir and marina
  5. still moored up in barrow upon soar, and probably will be for a few days yet! It's a gusty one today
  6. I had an interesting experience with side winds yesterday - not only did it suddenly blow me sideways about six to ten feet, but it also tipped me over by about 20/25 degrees, so much so my side hatches opened!
  7. I'm currently on the Soar, which is in flood according to the coloured boards - Travelled about 12 miles yesterday on it, with no issues, but what will the trent be like? (i'll be heading west, which is upstream?) is it best to wait it out, and if so, how long do we reckon that will take for levels to drop?
  8. When i say 'one' i mean a couple, one for me, one for a guest if i have one. Yes, single handed. I don't plan on the Tidal Trent just yet, Just the Non tidal section, I want more experience before tidal work, only being on board for 9 months. Mooring on the Soar and Trent - i guess its pretty much only designated mooring spots that i can use?
  9. No, Yes, No, but going to get one. How necessary is a VHF? That's just the start - i'll continue on through Harecastle Tunnel and beyond, but that is likely a month at least away - i'll decide where i'm going nearer the time.
  10. I'm planning a several month journey departing in a week or two, from Milton Keynes up to Market Harborough, on to the Trent, down to Fradley, and up to Stoke on Trent. Anything i should be aware of? No stop areas? good places to stop? What will the Soar and Trent be like over the next few months?Never done rivers before so any advice is appreciated!
  11. exactly my plan - even if i don't fix it, as a temporary spare it'll do the job for a short while
  12. Ordered a replacement, hopefully it'll be good for a few years to come!
  13. I have a flojet Quiet Quad R4405-143, age unknown, and has started leaking a little from the block at the front with the wires coming out. Is this repairable, or is it best to just replace? Seeps from just below that bolt in the centre
  14. I did a tip run last week - to dispose of stuff in storage and odds n sods as well as several oil changes worth of oil. hired a van for this purpose, turned up and was told they'll let me off today but in future i'll need a permit - applied for this using a friends address and went back the next day for another load - with the oil. i had about 30 litres worth but was told there's an 8l limit per year or pay £5 cash per litre on the excess- more than the new cost - i still have that excess oil. and they wonder why tipping is on the increase! (they took my permit details and reg down to keep a record)
