  1. Actually their is a Remote Controlled Narrowboat called Tin Slug which I spotted passing through Swing Bridge No.12 in Maghull on the Leeds and Liverpool Canal. I noticed it reversed and steered itself and the enginer and rudder we're remotly operated from 50ft away by the owner. The reason why the owner Built this boat so he could operate a swing bridge single handidly. If anyone knows the swing bridge at the Running Horses between Lydiate and Maghull they would tell you the controls are on wrong side of Canal. So very handy and a very clever chap. https://twitter.com/CanalPirate/status/1159085988649623552?s=20

    My first trip apart from round Salt House Docks to Marina on winter moorings was up to Maghull. In a very bad storm steering a 12ft. 6 width 60ft wide beam was fun and games and control panel is a little tricky at first to reach so traveled at a slow pace. It does not help that the Canal has not been dredged till past Litherland in recent History, hence Pride Of Sefton 2 and my Boat both had Carpet lodged round our propellers. As had to wind my self some CRT Dredging Boats. Waste Barges and Boat Cranes near Melling where canal breached.. And was stuck on the towpath bank and towed of by CRT contractors small tug. Past Melling my Journey was very smooth got to grips with the boat and felt confident enough to whack the speed up a bit (not fall) as clear run.
  4. Three are now doing a £22 a month deal with the Huawei B311 and Unlimited Data. Including GoBinge http://store.three.co.uk/view/basket/MBBD30012018T134033
  5. Now on the Leeds & Liverpool Canal on way to home mooring tomorrow.
  6. I have T&C as always there's a small print but to advertise online and shop fronts the words unlimited when its not is braking trades description act.
  7. Trading Standards would be port of call. But when i do do 1TB a month I will chase it up with them. As would have to proove by their own wording commercial use.
  8. I got there chargeable 34" maybe 32" but yes only needs to charge up while traveling for 2hrs on 240v or can be charged 12v but gives up to 8-14 hrs of viewing before it needs recharging or pugging in. Great TV but yes have to adjust quality which uses a bit more of the energy.
  9. They still can pulled to account if someone uses 1tb of data and not for commercial reasons. Back in the days of 56k dial ups some services said unlimited and were not and many got round them. as Unlimited does not mean fair use.
  10. They would have to prove commercial use.
  11. It worked on my Huweei MIFI 4G Router even though a phone sim deal, even said in shop it would. It is totally uncapped the Unlimited Data.. Does not slow down at any time
  12. From my few months experience on a 60 x 12.6ft wide beam. Which dips at the back, part of design. It steers from the center very smoothly, you do have to factor for winds. But if you're going slowly you have time to judge you're movement and should not have much trouble. I will take it extremely slowly when I moor up on my new linear home mooring end of the Month. As Boat in front as tight space to plonk it in. I find it relaxing moving the beast about,
  13. I'm moving end of month to Maghull seems round Liverpool Area and outskirts very good service on 3
