    Strewth …... Take a failed pub Rip out all the pub fittings Chuck a hundred gallons of white at it Nail a price tag that resembles a phone number on it because it's next to the cut Ignore the fact that being towpath side you can't even moor a canoe outside

    The most worrying aspect of those was the lead acid battery positioned under the seat. Should you frighten yourself sufficiently to lose control of your bladder it was possible to warm the cockles of your heart. Fortunately it was only 6 volt.

    Traveling on a canal at night?

    What did that comment add to the thread?

    STOLEN BOAT: from the Cowley area GU

    Does this mean that in 2 weeks somebody stole it, advertised it and sold it on to people who bought it off the towpath for cash and lacking a survey? Was the Safety Certificate on board? Or was that ignored I wonder. Oh dear, good news for the owner but not the buyers.

    That bit of Marcellus does in fact have the correct back end ….. it just happens to be at the other end.

    Guns - what's the law?

    I only hope that whatever he's shooting gets fed to his boney dog.

    I see Prince Philip and Angela Merkel are having a baby.

    Sizing a fan belt

    I too used the string method once in Stone Staffs. I went into a little back street shop next to the market. The bloke in there wasn't overly enthusiastic about unpacking oodles of fan belts from their cardboard wrap arounds in order to offer them up for comparison. Until I said I was happy to give him two days while I enjoyed the pubs and Indian restaurants, and I'd buy three. I got them in less than a day.

    When do you run your engine?

    I've gotten into the habit of running my engine every time I move. And I move whenever I want to, regardless of time of day or year. It matters not a jot to me whether I'm moving through ice, rain, snow, sunlight or moonlight. I have a licence, insurance and a safety certificate, I also have a home mooring ……. it's just the kind of rebel I am!

    canal bucket list?

    For me it would be to poddle down to London and back again, while being able to stop wherever I want in the capital, like I could in the 80s.

    English Rugby in a sad state.

    It all started to go down hill when it became known that the public toilets in the park on the Visitor Moorings were utilised for cottaging and mainlining. So consequently have been boarded up. Also the best chip shops are no where near the cut.
