  13. don't know what bones comment was but it's a funny shape.... (the lock, not Bones) Although one of the downsides I find from having an encyclopaedic knowledge of the canals is I don't get surprises any more, which is why we'll be off to the norfolk broads and the Irish and French canals as soon as we can get hold of a trailable boat and suitable vehicle to pull it with

  17. It's not just you... I once went down Camp Hill, up Ashted, down Aston, up Garrison, up Ashted for a second time, and up Farmers Bridge :lol: MJG what I would do is go anticlockwise and work out when you need to be at Fazely junction, if for any reason you are late just take the Coventry/Oxford route
  18. Thanks Bottle, I'm a pre 1997 (by some margin) driver. One thing that I seem to be reading in those notes that is that the trailer mustn't weigh more than the vehicle: If that's true there are an awful lot of people breaking the law? Or have I got it wrong?
  19. Well said Chris, when I worked on "sink" estates we used to get the kids to decorate the bus shelters, and then we moved them on to the shop shutters. They brightened the place no end, the kids self esteem rocketed, which (and some people don't eblieve this but it's true) made them more responsible citizens less likely to indulge in antisocial behaviour. I seem to recall one of them went on to make a bit of a business by going round valley towns offering to put his artwork on the shop shutters, which at a stroke removed the fortress like appearance of shopping streets after hours.
  20. Yes, on an early trip in Ripple I got blown into the side of a moored boat and hung up on his tiller, it cost me £75 in repairs to his boat as I wrenched the tiller round. The only think I can say is that he perhaps should have taken the tiller off, but even so, if I'd gone faster there would have been no problem

  25. Ah, Paul, are you saying they are, nevertheless, trailable? I'm trying to get gold of White Horse Boats who now appear to be a hire company in Devizes.
