  1. Hello, thank you, have PMd you. Thank you, have PMd you
  2. Let's just say that sometimes, my optimistic and unrealistic side gets the better of me. Don't worry, the last few days and certainly here has given me a reality check and prompted my pragmatic side to kick into gear. I think it may just be a case of heading off and getting as far as I can in the time that I have, mooring up, then continuing on my next days off (a great suggestion that I hadn't even contemplated). Thank you for your time, much appreciated.
  3. You know what, that's a great shout! Been so focused on getting it home in that window, can't believe I didn't even think of that 🤦‍♀️ Thank you, much appreciated.
  4. Ok, so when you put it like that... It does seem somewhat foolhardy and ridiculous. I do have a tendency to jump into things with both feet, without actually thinking through the logistics and practicalities of the situation (certainly not the 1st time and I suspect most definitely not the last). I am not ruling out shipping but it is currently loitering in the back of my mind as a last resort. I am currently getting the boat all serviced, checked and was planning to set off at day break to beat the rush, but yes, a revise in strategy, is definitely required. Thank you, much appreciated.
  5. Hello, I have not no. I'll look into it, thank you.
  6. Hi Athy, thanks for your response. To be honest, I couldn't tell you. I found an old list on canal junction and have called that many people, I can't remember. Not sure how this site works but I might see if I can find him and send a message. Thanks again, much appreciated.
  7. Hi Dave thanks for your response. I think a route I found for exact location to location said 152 miles and 85 locks (it looked like the best as it had fewer locks). I've allowed 10 days but was hoping to do it in 5 and a half (hence the need for someone to take it in turns with). I think however, I might possibly need to manage my expectations 🤣 Unfortunately shipping is rather expensive when you add craning either end, plus it would be a shame to miss out on the experience. Let's just say it's a work in progress, which I'm sure will come good in the end 🙂
  8. Hello, I would like to pick your brains please. I have just bought my first narrowboat which is something I've been wanting to do for quite some time. However, it is currently moored up near Whitchurch and I need to get it down to Northampton at the end of the month (yes, a wee bit short notice I know). Unfortunately I only have a 1 day hire boat experience under my belt (though I am doing an RYA Helmsman course this week). I think it will be a great experience to bring it down, but I have a limited window of time to do it in so would like to have someone reliable to help if possible. I have tried many boat movers but they are all booked or away, I did have someone lined up but regretfully it did not work out, and others who have agreed are never to be heard from again. Does anyone have someone trustworthy and reliable the could recommend please? Many Thanks
