  1. Once again my thanks to the inputs given. I have some investigating to do, and the oxy generators sound a good way to go as smaller to use and lighter to lug about. Briefly looking on the net for them they are quite expensive to buy..I don't know if they can be hired and would that work out more expensive in the long run... I think couple of posters suggested I talk in the first instance to the respiratory team as to best way forward. But having tried before I felt that they didn't fully understand my predicament with a 200 year old system of a canal lock and pulling a heavy cylinder on a tr
  2. Thank you all sooo much for your professional input..much appreciated, your comments noted. I dId email BSS to check my status regarding medical oxygen onboard boat, as I did think that this would invalidate my BSS cert! Had a nice reply informing me that this would NOT be the case as long as I was aware (which I am) of the safety issues involved. So sigh of relief as didn't want to leave the cut behind. Obviously on here there's experienced people knowing about smaller devices than the one I've got here at home. Now, thankfully I've been assessed with only needing oxy when 1. Walking or
  3. Hi all.. First of all I hope that I've posted on right forum! I thought I'd ask on here if anyone is or knows, someone who has to use this to maintain their breathing. I am a sufferer OF COPD and have had it now for number of years and in January got an infection that resulted in an extreme exasperation as classed by the respiratory team who took care of me. Now, the question is, as I have to drag a cylinder around on this trolley is there another way of maintaining the joys of boating which I've managed over the many years with something more compact and usable if you follow? I did tr
  4. Cheers Junior for post but we're going in opposite directions... No matter will catch you another time
  5. Any fuel boats plying the S&W at Mo were heading towards Stourport - just passing Stourton Jac
  6. As usual cheers for replies....Might seek leccy hook up as got machine on board but Genny isn't working that well.
  7. Hi all... Can someone give me a 'heads up' on whether there are any washing machines at this place? I think they have showers etc and all the other services BUT not sure if they have machines there.... So need to do me smalls lol... ?
  8. Nothing out of the ordinary with 'Hire base's' breasting ém up on water points during winter months is it? If memory serves me right, in the early 90's when Gt Haywood used to be Dartline hire boats it was virtually impossible to take on water there unless you had a SUPER long hose and negotiate climbing over all of their hire boats to get to the tap!! Those were the days huh?
  9. Well done Dean... luv the 'horse play' lol
  10. Well this lock beats me as we've just cruised the whole length of the S&W from Gt Haywood to Stourport and most of the locks are named not numbered and pic shows lock 11 on the beam! .... and I'm sure I would have noticed that large bridge over the bottom of the lock!!! Unless this has been erected since my trip or does this call another trip to 'specksavers' lol
  11. Really? I sent them an email asking prices and could we stay on board whilst the process is completed, and Eamon replied Sorry NO. I did challenge this saying how do other boaters manage if they cannot stay with their boat, to which they replied 'I would have to seek alternate accommodation whilst the boat is in the dry dock!!!
  12. Hi folks... sorry yes I should have said we're based in Kings Bromley on the T+M. I've already tried down towards Burton... at Jannels (not sure if name is still the same now) I've Tried Fradley Jnc... When out last week tried Sherbourne Wharf and couple of others but all so far say same... NO
  13. Sorry to bring this subject up yet again folks, but it seems wherever I inquire about the service I'm being told the same 'sorry cant stay aboard whilst this is being done' owing to an accident that happened somewhere and were fined and now their insurers wont cover for this!!! So my question is this... what about live aboards, whereby this is their only abode and they 'cant afford' to stay somewhere else and pay for accommodation plus the bill for their boat as well?? This surely will affect a lot of docks if this is how it has got to be now....(H&S no doubt again) So I'm running
  14. Well boaters I can say that when i sent that email to C&T when I began this post I wasn't holding my breath on a response so quick... but YES a reply I received... and I quote this below Quote....... Thank you for your below email. Currently Dean Davies is away on secondment so I am covering for him in the interim. The situation with our grass cutting has been a cause of real frustration and embarrassment to us locally and is a problem that has been building up over recent weeks. My team and I have spent a significant amount of time dealing with this and is due to several reasons -
  15. I don't know what other members think of our 'towpaths' if that is what they're supposed to be now.. but the overgrowth on most of the system is BAD. Even to try and find the 'Armco' to moor is a mission, firstly to find it... and secondly preferably with long sleeves as you run the risk of being stung by nettles... The only places that remotely look like what we were used to by the meaning of 'towpaths' is by bollard at locks.. oh, maybe a bit of clearance at visitor moorings for a couple of boats... I have sent my rant off to C&T but I'm not expecting much of a rely back or excuse as to
