    Enforcement action in Wigan

    We're still waiting for an updated list from C&RT We don't exclude any boat from our listing - we show everything that we've got. We even retain old details so you can actually look up a scrapped plate or find out the history of a plate. Oh really?

    RCR engine service

    Ah yes but modern oil is horribly expensive. - the stuff for my car is £15.00 a litre

    Quiet routes

    The L&L west of Wigan, including the Rufford Branch, can be remarkably quiet even in September.

    Boat scam

    And then if someone complained that they'd bough a car off Arthur Daley and things had gone wrong we'd all be saying "Your fault"

    Boat scam

    yes but if I was in the trade I wouldn't be basically flogging you a car in a pub car park would I?

    Boat scam

    But if you came to buy a car from me and the V5 said its current registered keeper was Bob Smith you'd probably be suspicious. With a boat unless someone provides C&RT paperwork related to the licence then there is nothing to tie a boat to a person.

    Boat scam

    At least with a car there are things like a V5

    12v laptop chargers needed

    It might not be - I just know some of them are....

    12v laptop chargers needed

    Is it a better idea to look at a small inverter which you can then use with multiple small mains devices? I had one of those devices in that link and I found it rather unreliable and it died for no apparent reason. Also on many of them the output voltage is switchable so it is vitally important you check it each time you use it and ensure it doesn't get knocked when in use or it could be bye-bye laptop.

    Leeds & Liverpool Canal questions

    Everyone forgets the Western End - Wigan through to Liverpool is remarkably rural and scenic and you can throw in the Rufford Branch and the Liverpool Link. Hire from somewhere like Middlewich or Anderton or Acton Bridge

    Manchester house boat row.

    Either the photos are using a very odd lens or its much wider than a narrowboat ("traditional" or not)

    Mouse in roof void?

    or a giant earwig.. Actually we had a large beetle in the roof once - made a hell of a noise... and not it wasn't Ringo.

    Fake news on NBW

    It did have nearest winding holes.... Email Subject : Navigation closure notice: Shropshire Union Canal, Navigation: Closed, Towpath: Closed Email Date : 2018/10/24 11:41:34 Navigation : Shropshire Union Canal Navigation Status : Closed Towpath Status : Closed Start Date : 2018/11/05 08:00:00 End Date : 2018/12/14 16:00:00 Starts At : Railway Bridge 89A Ends At : Railway Bridge 89A Upstream Winding : Poole Hill, south of Bridge 96, Shropshire Union Canal Downstream Winding : Hack Green, Lock 2, Shropshire Union Canal and it still does: https://canalrivertrust.org.uk/notice/12896/bridge-89a-railway-bridge-near-nantwich-shropshire-union-canal So maybe the only problem is that they should have stated that "The towpath is also closed for safety reasons" . It's pretty obvious that if the towpath has to be closed for safety reasons then its likely the canal is also closed, especially when they provide winding hole information

    Fake news on NBW

    It does say Type : Navigation Closure - which means canal only, with the towpath open.

    Fake news on NBW
