  1. I can understand this comment, shame on me for not diving in deeper and calling perhaps Bridgewater canal and asking, However why would the bottom part be added if this user didn't feel the same? I like the sense of community how some one will just jump in and try to pull points out of thin air Oh p.s what were the questions? I.never saw the question marks also looking at profs think are.might be a aspect here tbu
  2. It's more of a situation of balancing finance, And I wouldn't look as low as 200gbp I don't want to die by been sinking in my sleep. I also wouldn't be as irrisponcible to go and abandon a boat near a water way or wildlife to op I don't ware any shade of glasses and I have done a lot of footwork, I was curious with it not been a canal boat and figured, "hey I know what let's ask somewhere people have probs spent years around so might know" So perhaps my logic was way off mark and should have asked over at geeksquad and let them use mathematics and science to tell me if it would be possible... So sorry for that I have also spoke to a few marinas had acquired mooring prices in the past I'm not from or near London hence why I asked here also, And the reason I was looking on the project side is because I love making designing and crafting things putting time and effort and learning. It's also perhaps why I annoy so many sellers asking questions and asking for photos so much, And I don't give up easy so shame on people who start projects and give up. With anything really, Perhaps that is self projection from can't be arsed or sod trying anything like that. It's a general attitude quite common in all walks of life unfortunately
  3. IThanks for the small help given, I asked the same over on another forum and have got the help needed. Can I just ask, why is there such arrogance and hostility here? Not many forums seem to have this hostility you guys do? It was nice to see replies from other forum or I realy would be saying fthis and cancel canal and river trust charity So I'm just curious why this hostility at canalworld and why have section of the forum for new? I'm sure everyone isn't like that

  5. Thanks is for the advice it's why I asked and not said "hey I just bought this"
  6. Hi sorry I thought I had cnp the boat, the image shown was not the best but it's a westerly 22 and from what I asked he said the cooker and fire have been tested while it's been out thanks for the info Hi thanks for the Info, I know about the moorings ect I had enquired with a few places. I wouldn't continuously cruise so would use paid mooring, I can't find many that are like that however mainly looked over gum tree and ebay. That's a bit over my budget at the moment but thanks for sharing also
  7. Thanks that is great il study over this, my biggest concern is I don't want to be like a white van man and bring something inland that is going to just annoy everyone and take unfair space
  8. Hi! Thanks for reading, I have been looking at canal boats and cruisers for quite a while but with having a small budget this has been unfruitfull so far. However I came across recently when looking over a project norman20 what I thought from the picture to be a similar boat, through ignorance on my part and Google confusing me I came to realise it was in fact not a cruiser but a yatch. It's been sold as a project but had a working log burner and working oven. It had sails that are no longer resistant, and has been hard standing for 10 years however it is apparently a well made hull for the time. It is also missing a engine what I believe was around a 8hp. I guess where I'm going with this I really do like the style of the boat it's dimensions are LOA : 22' 3" (6.8m) Beam : 7' 6" (2.3m) Draft : 2' 3" (0.7m) Would it be possible for this boat to be used on canals around London? I'm asking because I know some wide beams can however this also isn't a canal boat Hope that wasn't too confusing and welcome any and all advice and input Kind regards
  9. Thanks guys both comments real helpful! Il be sure to check the link out also Has put my mind at rest a lot
  10. Hi, I had a question I was hoping for as much info as possible because I can't find anything on Google. I appreciate the time taken to read this and help given also so pre thank you. So I saw a boat however the engine is outboard motor yamaha hp7, I can't find this engine on Google at this size so perhaps I need a model number. The boat is a 22ft grp narrowboat 1978 wilderness beaver. The issue is the engine won't start, apparently it was fixed but then broke down after 15 minutes a few years back. I had looked and seen some engines outboard that seem affordable, This would be a project to work on but I don't know a thing about how the engine works, Is it a case of buy a engine take old one off fit new one, and that's job done? Or does it have to be a certain type to for to the tiller? Would the new engine have everything like gearbox on it or would it have to attach to ones fitted for first engine? Asmuch and detailed info as possible please for would be amazing, I can be quite practical for example I bought a Honda city express moped when I was 16 with a failed engine and learned to replace that. This is just totally new and I don't want to buy a engine too powerful or run into issues. Once again thank you kindly for helping me and reading this post
