  1. Just over a week to go, plus a MRSA test, Covid test and angiogram and we will be off!
  2. I have my eco fan pointed at a rubber tube which runs the length of the boat and exits at the back. Don’t need to use the engine for propulsion in winter 😎
  3. Regrettably we are also unable to attend due to me having some health problems of my own. We will be there in spirit, and I have let Dona know as well as offering her any support she needs. I will be having a dram for Alan on Saturday and he (and Dona) will be in our thoughts.
  4. He was an outstanding gentleman and a great friend. When we first met him, his life was in turmoil and a bottle of scotch a day his medicine. I have many stories of our cruising together during this time - him and the untrainable James, including the maiden flight of his first drone, all 30 seconds of it until he flew it into the canal. Meeting Dona gave him 5 years of happiness, something I know he will be grateful for. He was not well for the last 6 months but remained cheerful. He will be sorely missed by all who knew him.
  5. From what I read, it is not because you are a dual citizen but because you are a citizen of the USA. I am a triple citizen, and have never had an insurance issue! Yes, declared.
  6. Hector went past us last night, heading for Stoke Breurne. Very quiet.
  7. They filled the hole with pea gravel and some resin. Lockie amazed it is all still there!
  8. This post cannot be displayed because it is in a forum which requires at least 10 posts to view.
  9. Maffi has been anything but rude to me in all the years I have known him. He is mildly eccentric, but so what. if you take the time to talk to him rather than abusing him over a platform, I am sure you would see another side to him. I get on with all different types of members on this forum, many having completely different views to my, why? Because we are boaters
  10. Glorious day for a cruise!

    Not a problem, it has been a few years! I am one bridge up from you until Wednesday but will probably catch up on Saturday
