  1. I used to play as a child on the scrap workboats moored in a line outside Mayors Yard circa 1978-80 ish, my first trip up the branch was 1999 from Douglas Boatyard after a rear engine fitout & blacking there, that slipway into the Douglas on a 40ft narrowboat was terrifying! 😱 Trip up the branch was really hard with weed and knackered locks, soo much better now since the link has brought in traffic👍
  2. Shallow waters, maximum draught warning.
  3. They use W Bus signalling for turning on etc, a Webasto 1533 timer provides this amongst others, or theres W Bus boxes on ebay that do the job. I use this method via a switched relay to an app on my phone so I can fire it up whenever I want remotely, hassle free for 2 years now!

  6. Dont suppose you know Who do they use to auction or how do they dispose of craft there?
  7. Video clip of Happier days on Mill Lane Wharf, May’18…🙂
  8. Talking to a well established local canal trader today, was informed that all 5 boats were seized and loaded on wagons with serious police and bailiffs in a attendance. As well as Wyre & Mersey, Equus, Wendy Woo and A.N other were all taken!
  9. Heard it on good authority this evening that both Wye and Mersey were removed by CRT for non payment of licences, they were seen being towed to Silcox yard by contractor tugs, the narrowboats have moved, where to nobody knows!
  10. apologies for delay in getting back to you, but their perminent mooring seems to have gone, 5 boats normally there, can only presume a new owner of the house? Im moored in Burscough now so if I hear anything Ill post up here.
  11. Dont ask what he stores in boxes on his rear deck nowadays!🤢🤮🤮
  12. If you follow Dunklie’s lead here, you’re entitled to do the link 24 / 7 / 365 days of the year! 🙄🙄 https://thunderboat.boards.net/thread/7937/winter-cc-nw
