  1. Folk are often asking for BSC examiners and general help in the Napton, Stockton, Braunston & Rugby area. Give Russ a call I've known him over 10 years & thoroughly recommend him & the standard of his work. See link https://rfmarineservices.co.uk/
  2. Every day is a school day. Guess what I have learned today. On these locks there is a small culvert up stream of the cill so the pound level can be dropped below the cill level for maintenance I guess. The bung was leaking so they have put a new on in. I was going to say the lock is now all good anyway it is back the way it was.
  3. It seems they are going to inspect it on monday. I suppose if they are going to mend it there will be a stoppage notice. It has been quite busy through the locks today
  4. The top cill is leaking and a workboat and equipment are in place. Local rumour is it will be shut monday but I can't find a notice anywhere
  5. I think that is often true, some of the old ones seem better but 40 years is pushing it.
  6. I have been reading a CRT report that says they are replacing 118 lock gates during this winters stoppages. According to their own publicity they are responsible for 1580 locks. If we say approximately 3 gates per lock that's 4740. So all gates should be renewed in the next 40 years. That's not ideal is it or have I got my figures all wrong? I'm not usually a CRT knocker just looking forward to lots of trouble free boating.
  7. Forumite roll call. Sorry if I missed. Got plenty more if you give me your boat name Big well done to Jane
  8. looking a bit busy this afternoon. Not seen 7 abreast before
  9. This post cannot be displayed because it is in a forum which requires at least 10 posts to view.
  10. Made my first visit to Alvecote today and thoroughly enjoyed it. Hope the weather doesn't spoil it for you all tomorrow. Alan love the matching Flamingo jumpers. Photos of today on the Flicker link below in albums sorry to anyone I missed
  11. 3 otters have been around Calcutt locks and marina over last winter and recently. Regarding the fence which I had heard about months ago I think there is a public footpath over Calcutt top lock and round the reservoir to the car park so I can"t see how access can be restricted that much.
  12. At the end of the afternoon parade I saw Adamant being towed along, hope its nothing serious. I looked for Pru when I saw Tim and I didn"t notice her, hope that"s not bad news.
  13. If you look at the flicker link below for 2012 I think your boat is right at the end. Lillian 514961 built by Johnathan Wilson.
  14. Don"t know if it"s related but there is a lot going on in the fields by bridge 81. They are excavating the new marina and some of the workers are living on site in caravans.I was approached by a nice couple a few weeks ago who had been told by their boss that there was a pub close by on the towpath????
