  1. I speak from experience.having moored under one of these power lines on the Leicester line just outside Yelvertoft my TV, battery monitor and inverter all had strange 'occurrences ' which returned to 'normal' once i moved away. I have read various documents advising not to stand underneath or spend too much time beneath these power lines.
  2. Me thinks CRT dont want to kill off the other canal users. No such warning for us boaters !
  3. Move your boat away from the pylon asap. Read up on stray current from these metal structures. fishermen with carbon fibre fishing rods feel huge vibration when trying to fish beneath these power lines. Not the best place to moor under any circumstances.
  4. I hear that watford locks are closed and could be for sometime after a sink hole appeared in the area where the gate swings open. Nothing from CRT but just a facebook message with a photo.
  5. Ray Golden Eagle is owned by one of my staff. He bought it for its railway connections. Inside the boat are numerous fittings from the original train. It was good to see you in Braunston today.
  6. Simon Please call in - we would be delighted to see you again.
  7. I am waiting for the organiser to tell me if he still wants to proceed. Thanks Ray
  8. Sadly we have decided to cancel this years event as it was becoming impossible to get commitment from some of our suppliers. We are now planning an event for June 2022
  9. A Marina Resident, Peter Andrews, left CRT about £150,000 in his will with the wish that it be used to provide a wheelchair friendly bridge to replace the wooden ladder bridge. CRT accepted the monies but do not appear to be doing anything about the new bridge. Maybe they have something in the pipeline.
  10. Ray Thanks, its taken a lot of persuading to get Tim to cancel. I see from CRT e mail today they would have stopped us anyway. Hope to see you again soon.
  11. Just to confirm the Braunston Historic Boat Rally 2020 has been cancelled. It is hoped to hold it at the end if June 2021 when hopefully President will be back in steam with the help of Tim's £20,000 donation. Sorry you have been notified in this way but i havent had time to write or e mail everyone.
  12. Ray In some ways it will be very sad if her body is found in the canal after so many years but it would give closure to the family.
  13. At the time of the incident the Police said it was arson. Nobody injured.
  14. Ian I have volunteered in the last 12 months so will e mail as you suggest
