  1. Cheers Matty, I need to get away early, but I’ll save the 0430s for work next week
  2. Bit of a novice question, what’s the earliest I can use the locks in the morning ? Got make up some time with a early start due to a tree being down and delays.
  3. Well we’re enroute now, Atherstone locks soon, just coming through Nuneaton. Ive has a couple of times when going round a fair gentle bend the boat has headed straight on an had no turn at all (I don’t think I’m going to fast) ! Any thoughts ? Just cleared the weed hatch and checked the tiller and cleared a bit of debris out
  4. No no no, It’s all changed now, we’ve got the same boat for 7 nights Thanks love a great pub recommendation 🍺 from what I can make out, some countryside/village/town ? So would you say a nice mix ?
  5. Having a look at going up to Burton-On-Trent, seems a nice distance and not to many locks. Anyone got any thoughts or comments on this ?

    WiFi or Data

    Hi, we’re off for 7 nights and was wondering if anyone can advise on options for WiFi or buy an unlimited data Sim ? The boat does not have it. It will not be used during the cruising time, just for use in the evening between 4 people. All Help gratefully received
  7. Hi Cuthound Thanks for your reply. I’m fearing that we’re going to find some delays while we’re out, so I’m try to miss out any large flights of locks. I'm hoping to get some more real-time updates like yours on where’s busy and where’s not (if any) Thanks
  8. Hi All, Away for 7 nights from Friday, departing Clifton Cruises Rugby( still undecided on the route to take 🤷🏼‍♂️, but not Warwickshire Ring (another time with a bigger crew)) Any current information on how busy the Canals around the routes from Rugby are ? How long waiting times for locks ? Any other info from My upcoming trip gratefully received. Thanks
  9. Yes swapping boats on the Monday, a double booking !! But not many other options out there for decent boats Was thinking of doing to Ashby Friday-Monday to get in the swing of it (1st timers !) and then I was thinking some more challenges on the Monday-Friday section Any ideas where I can download full size canal maps to print of fairly large (4xA4) ? Thanks
  10. Update !! Bit of a cock-up with our booking !! Now got to do 2 trips from Rugby. One Friday-Monday and the other Monday-Friday. Any suggestions for our now 2 trips ?? Thanks
  11. Hi Rib-M, I’m happy to see it all, got 2 teenagers in tow, so want to show them the country they live in. Thanks
  12. Thanks Nice tips. Any info out there on potential wait times at particular locks in August ?
  13. Cheers Hudds Lad, I’ve looked at both of those and got some ideas. Like you said, I’m wait for someone with local knowledge to give me a few gems 🤞🏻 Thanks
  14. Hi All, Booked a boat called Little Pea from Clifton Cruisers in Rugby for a week in August. Can you suggest some routes to take from Rugby ? Open to all suggestions for routes: Rings, out and back, long days, leisurely cruising. Hopefully your advice will help my planning. Thanks Mark
  15. Naughty Cal, Thanks for your post, what’s missing compared to modern boats ? They are priced well for August compared to others. How far can we go from West Stockwith up the Chesterfield Canal ? Is there any junctions to turn into other waterways ? Thanks Bigray, How far can we go from West Stockwith up the Chesterfield Canal ? Is there any junctions to turn into other waterways ?
