    ebay win

    Canalplan would know about it from when it was first registered on BW/C&RT waters. Still waiting for the latest set of registration details from C&RT

    Digidome aerial revelation

    I wonder what components are in the metal box - apart from a LED and a couple of resistors?

    Canal closures

    That's a problem with loading multiple tabs - when you go to the map tab it sits at the min zoom - you can just reload the page or use https://canalplan.org.uk/utilities/stoppages.php?tab=997 Which starts it at the proper map level

    Keeping Sanitary Stations Open

    I remember being told "Don't put anything apart from bog roll in the toilet unless you've eaten it first" I can't say I blame C&RT - the number of closures of elsan points / self pump outs due to the, and I being blunt here, the total stupidity of a small number of boaters. Sometimes you see the same place getting closed repeatedly for the same problem - which suggests the idiot is a local moorer. C&RT are just flushing their money down the toilet when it comes to this sort of thing.

    Orion Narrowboats

    The list is never going to be 100% accurate - firstly getting a complete list from C&RT seems rather hard nowadays and secondly things like builder are not mandatory and contains a lot of "bad" data

    LED headlights.

    There used to be specific rules for headlights - I seem to remember they said that they shouldn't have a beam (i,e, should be unfocussed).

    I clicked Submit reply and it sat there and did nothing - so I clicked it again....

    Blobs of it were appearing at Market Drayton today. Lay in bed this morning listening to gas bubbling up under the boat, and there was quite a bit of gas in the boat but I blame that on the curry and some beer.
