  1. Thanks peoples for the very informative info. That answers all my concerns. Paul
  2. Thanks Jen, look after those wellies Paul
  3. Horace Quite unbelievable the response to a very simple question. In answer to your comment, if planning is required then planning I shall do and whilst having some knowledge of this section of canal ie, tunnel, winding hole and locks is it not reasonable to seek guidance from better informed folk? Referring to Mrsmelly comment on my number of posts I must have missed part of the briefing as silly me I didn't realise that the comparison of 6000 odd posts against my 31 meant that a disregard of sensible dialogue became an entitlement. End of question.
  4. Machpoint005 I asked a simple non confrontational question which others had the capacity to answer in a constructive manner. Your answer alas not fit that assessment. Please give a little more thought should you choose to respond to similar mail. Thank you to those who gave a sensible reply.
  5. Thanks for the reply. Do I opt for the Yes,or No?
  6. Hi all Just a quick question. Not having a Nicolsons handy for the Grand Union can anybody tell me if it is possible to turn a 63 ft boat in the winding hole immediately south of the southern Blisworth tunnel entrance or do I have to continue through two locks before turning. Thanks Paul

  8. Thanks team, all very interesting and informative but it seems that like me nobody has actually had a shot with Wet & Forget. I wait with baited breath just in case somebody out there has experience of the product on canvas and I guess would it need reproofing?
  9. Has anybody any experience of using "Wet & Forget" mould cleaner particularly on canvas covers? It boasts miracle cures on stone, wood and other materials and maybe canvas but I haven't read any reviews to confirm this. Thanks Paul
  10. To all who responded thank you very much. I will work my way through the responses and then maybe come up with my location which with my navigation will come as a surprise.
  11. Hi peoples Does anybody have knowledge of an App that would give an accurate location of your boat on the cut if you were to require immediate aero med, fire service etc assistance. Basically it would need to be an accurate Lat & Long that the emergency services could feed into their kit as "just north of Bridge 27" is meaningless to a co-ordinating Ops Room or Helicopter crew. I'm sure that I should be aware of some programme but.................. Thanks.
  12. Hi People's Does anybody know of a service engineer/company for Victron Inverters in the Daventry - Northampton area of the G U in Northamptonshire. Thanks P
  13. Thank you so much people's for your very quick and knowledgable responses. As best I can I will reply to your questions. First I guess I should say that we use the boat throughout the summer as constant cruisers. The remainder of the year is on an as and when basis but quite regularly for three or four days at a time. The remainder of the time the boat is in a marina connected to shore power which is running through the inventor and is supposed to be trickle charging the batteries. Nothing on the boat is left on when we are not on board on a regular basis. In answer to the following
  14. Details are that I have a Beta 43 HP engine with associated alternators for charging starter and deep cycle leisure batteries (4x110 batteries and one starter battery.) The past seven years have always been fraught with battery issues and I now have a situation where the batteries are once again shot and will dry out at the drop of a hat. I have been replacing wet cell batteries every couple of years always with the same problem of dry cells leading to knackered batteries. On one occasion I did see a flicker of "overcharge" on the battery monitoring system but it has not repeated this i
