  1. Good luck to the OP. I hope you get the boat sorted and your sister has many happy years on it. Absolutely blown away by the professionalism and decency of the vendor. If only all boat sellers behaved like this!
  2. I was involved in setting up a cancer support charity some years ago that started as a Facebook group. It was a lot of work and the reporting regulations for charities are pretty tough.
  3. If you are planning on buying a boat and spending a lot of time overseas (2 weeks +) please think about getting yourself a mooring. It will be an extra expense but will keep you from abusing the system by abandoning your boat on the towpath. Alternatively you could book onto visitor moorings at marinas if you don't want the committment of a full time mooring. Depending on how often you are away this could work out cheaper.

  7. Deep water is too scary for me, with all the krackens, sea serpents and man-eating giant squid!
  8. 10th Jan to 18th March Newark Town lock is scheduled to be closed for repair too. https://canalrivertrust.org.uk/notices/19540-newark-old-lock-and-lock-13-newark-town-lock-river-trent
  9. This is a Facebook group you might find useful if you launch in Newark (Trentlink - safe navigation of the tidal Trent): https://www.facebook.com/groups/666937220961360/?ref=share
  10. CRT do a very basic handling video on their website.
  11. Hi Jo. Welcome back! Hope you've been ok. Marianne
  12. And historic properties - owners of old or significant properties are often referred to as 'custodians' too.
  13. We live in Lincoln but moor our boat in Newark (half an hour away) because we like the convenience of being on the Trent.
  14. Best of luck. It's an exciting world on the waterways and there are so many experienced boaters on here that are happy to give their time advising others. If you see boats you like feel free to share for feedback.
