  1. People will get wood from the towpath from fallen trees etc but a narrow boat isn't the place to store and season a lot of logs so they burn it only part seasoned.
  2. This post cannot be displayed because it is in a forum which requires at least 10 posts to view.
  3. Using capacitor regulation doesn't make it lower quality, it may well be that way on purpose to make it more reliable.
  4. It's a simple capacitor regulated generator, the manual won't tell you more than is common to all such generators.
  5. Without a multimeter and diagnosing your fault you're just peeing in the wind. Could be anything from a bad connection to the socket, loose wiring, circuit breaker, capacitor, loss of residual magnetism. ( Bad capacitors will usually be " blown" ie bulging out of the outer case. )
  6. Citric acid would have the same descaling power but be safe to handle, cheap to buy, ( Wilco) and biodegradable. As long as there is no aluminium in the system.
  7. You will get about 10 deg C below ambient under the floor. Canal water is never really cold but this is certainly worth doing .
  8. Sorry I meant the terms and conditions that are agreed to on the application and renewal not the form itself. GENERAL TERMS AND CONDITIONS FOR BOAT LICENCES (EXCLUDING BUSINESS LICENCES) Introduction In accordance with s.43(3) of the Transport Act 1962, boat licences are subject to the conditions which apply to the Use of a boat on any Waterway which We own or manage. These are necessary to protect third parties and to help Us manage the Waterways well for the benefit of all Our users. If You breach any of these Conditions the Trust can terminate Your Licence, which may result in the removal of Your boat from Our Waterways.
  9. So you don't believe the claim on the licence application form that licences are issued under the 1962 TA ?
  10. I feel it's a mistake in the wording which is now open to interpretation, even just on the common-sense basis that no public body ( BW ) would be given unlimited powers to do what it wants , never using those powers and instead go to the huge trouble of seeking a further act to set out licence conditions if they already had the power to do that since 1962. Unfortunately no one is willing to undertake the level of work to settle the question via judicial review , thought Nigel Moore has gone into it. It's quite telling that CRT has never taken any issue related to this to court and drops any overstaying charge if challenged ?
  11. It doesn't, stop using it as justification for everything.
  12. You're welcome to prove me wrong, or even answer my question.
  13. Can someone explain what the penalty is for overstatying on a reduced time mooring? Fine? CRT cannot issue fines. ( CRT has never pursued the stated £25 per day in court and the only ones paid were because the payee was not told it was voluntary ) Charge? A charge has to be set out under specific conditions to be a charge. Revoke licence? Nope, a PBL can only be revoked by breaching any of the three conditions of the 1995 BW act section 17(3) nothing else. Breach of terms and conditions of " licence contract "? Nope, no contract can override statute ( the statute above) Add charge to your licence fee? Nope, illegal.
  14. I've never seen " continuous lines of slum housing boats" that may have occurred in specific places at some times but it's not the norm.
