  1. You cant have the hull properly surveyed with the boat in the water. Thats the only thing I personally would have surveyed.
  2. We used to moor near Sainsburys and never had an issue in Nottingham.
  3. I think there is a degree of truth in this too. Some people do seem to have become more 'insular' since the extended lockdowns we went through when wider social interaction was pretty well forbidden.
  4. On our recent (brief!) excursion on the Broads we noticed everybody bar a few were willing to exchange a wave. It was the occasional skipper of a posh fly bridge boat who would cruise past with their nose in the air. I just suppose the novelty of exchanging greetings with the hire boating underclass had worn off for them.
  5. What is the attraction of a Narrowboat to be used on the wide rivers of the Broads? I cant think of any. Yes you do see them but the Broads are really suited to wider boats and a GRP cruiser would IMHO be a much better bet, more internal space too. Yes they are arguably harder to keep warm (i know this from experience!) in colder weather but if the intended use is leisure boating I personally wouldnt even entertain a narrowboat. Grp boats can be had for a similar price to that Springer.
  6. Yes. Holme Bridge lock. We moored up, had breakfast and Snaygill met us to take us through,
  7. First lock we ever did as canal boat hire boaters. We waited there and Snaygill boats came to us by car to take us through/show us how to do a lock.

  12. You may be correct however this bit looks distorted and there is some brown staining. And the cable is not fully and properly inserted in the terminal. I would certainly be checking it.
  13. There you go, https://uk.rs-online.com/web/p/miscellaneous/0626135 Though what triggers it somebody else may know. Edit beaten to it by Martin Nicolas.
  14. Whatever it is it looks like its overheated previously, probably due to a dodgy connection.
