  1. I thought littering was dropping of your own rubbish whereas fly tipping was you dumping rubbish belonging to someone else. Or it may be the land status, littering on public land, fly tipping on private land Wasn't there a case awhile ago where some civic minded person collected litter and took it to the local tip where it was classed as commercial waste and was prosecuted for fly tipping
  2. So true. Went to boat late Sunday afternoon, never saw a soul. Karma ensued as I'd forgotten door key so left battery onboard. Lifted engine cover to see that the bilge had amassed enough water to submerge the engine / propshaft CV joint. Was hoping to pop around Monday but work interfered. Not going to pay the marina at £45 per hour Still nevermind eh it'll give someone a laugh
  3. That could be applied to every snowflake today, and I wish I would The only people who can look at their actions / behaviours in the past are dead and are either upstairs or downstairs 😇 👹 It is up to us to enjoy the freedoms won and make sure history doesn't repeat itself
  4. Donkeys out in Burma has their vocal cords cut so as not to give their positions away.
  5. If I walk I'll see more people than if I take the 5 minute drive. Park near boat. Swap batteries and charge battery at home then take charged battery to jump start a wheelchair accessible vehicle that will be needed to transport children of key workers or vulnerable children. The starter battery I have fitted to boat is for large vans with tail lifts and are cheaper than leisure batteries. They get renewed regularly as we have 12 such vehicles only doing short journeys.

  6. How do I attach a PDF to a post. I keep getting a message listing permitted formats, pdf's not being one of them. Thought pdf's were allowed or am I having a senior moment
  7. Good day and a happy new year to you all, Just received a CRT alert that part of the Leicester line in navigable with care. Bit confused as my marina has told me that in tier 4 I am not allowed to go near my boat. I haven't seen any notices from CRT regarding the latest restrictions. Whilst I have no desire to cruise Willy Nilly on the cut. I would like to visit and check the boat as I know I'll have a flat battery and despite updating the kitchen there is still some water in the system I'd like to get rid of I know there are liveaboards at our m
  8. Apparently he only had 10 minutes of fuel left. Had to chuckle when I read it and thought "Muppet". But it's not like he went shopping without a mask

  13. More and more of the Thames is being "policed" by one parking company. Obviously someone's seen this as a good idea as it gets them out of the hassle of doing it themselves (badly) and by sub contracting the task they can then deflect any criticism to them. Win win situation except for the poor boaters. Perhaps we should all remove boat names and numbers, that'll stuff them. 🤓
