  1. We left Crick about ten days ago and are now on the Ashby. Nothing but smiles, nods and warm words exchanged with moorers, walkers and boaters alike with but one exception.

  7. I slap whatever blackish paint is to hand. I know it's only going to stay on as far as the next lock or mooring, so don't worry too much.

  9. Presumably rather overloaded with 3 crews.
  10. I find our bow T-stud the very devil to get at, mainly because of the design of our cratch cover which covers the gunnel. I do plan to fit another further back from the bow on each side, when I can buy some, so that one can be more easily reached from the bank. I certainly don't want a centre cleats on the gunnel, they would be a real trip hazard. We already have a T-stud either side at the rear of the boat which are easy to reach from the bank-side. I too use the illustrated hitch to secure my mooring lines.
  11. We find that using pothole stuffers overnight removes the condensation problem from that area. Just leaves the double glazed window frames to wipe each morning in cold weather.
  12. When was you boat last treated with proxy blacking. Given the reputed longevity of that coating it may be in good order.
  13. Don't forget to feed your horse.
  14. That's why the sensible among us have bow thrusters!
  15. I got a "thick ear" in '56 when I gave that answer because my teacher thought I was asleep and guessed the answer to his question.
