  1. Thank you all who posted helpful advice on this thread i went for the EA rod licence as it  seems there is lots of water fishing that dose not nead anything more than that and can buy day permit's for arias that need them and will be getting the CRT wanderers licence as well.

    I do wonder if folks stopped asking questions on this forum  and just researched everything their would be no need for the forum their are sum who have had more input negative input and spent more time doing that than actually answering the question. 

    So in answer to the question this forum will just fade away what is a forum for to ask questions as usually helpful answers come back it seem that most thread's get bogged down with snide comments and remarks on this  one if i have a question to ask in future no mater what it is i will research it  or get my information from other sources

    like i have commented thanks for the advice  if the admin can delete my account and my information that would be very much  appreciated 

    i have aided all emales from this forum to my spam on email account

    regards bill

    I said understand after your little tissy tantrum, good to see your spelling has improved also. Well now you might post in the relevant section as obviously not “New to Boating” Bill

    Only new to canal boats and smelly canals and it actually rude to comment on folks difficulty with spelling but i will forgive you as you cant help being a spelling pedantic it is a diagnosed  condition just like dyslexia so your forgiven :)

    https://shop.canalrivertrust.org.uk/  Canal & River Trust Key £7




    https://www.midlandchandlers.co.uk/products/bwb-sanitary-keys-ag-023  £5.90



    DO NOT buy from eBay, i bought one in the past and so far it has worked in one out of about ten locks tried, the key is just too thick for most of the CRT locks.

    I ended up buying two or three direct from CRT so i know they'll work and the cash has gone direct to where it matters*


    *board meeting biscuits and director's new car

    getting them from the CRT that's what i will do thanks then it's going to them and can go back in to the system

    Good luck with it all, fun times ahead ;):) 


    What boat parts are you needing ?


    I notice one thing not on your list, but a good idea is to check windows, deck fittings etc etc are all good and sealed.  reseal if unsure as once fitted out it may not be possible.

    will have a look there's  one window that need's a leek fixed 

    cheers bill
