  1. An amazing bit of history. Thank you for taking the time to share.
  2. I am not, if you wouldn't mind sharing it?
  3. The AS3 is in my collection at Langley Mill. Kind regards Dan
  4. Depending on supplier of the stuffing box, I normally see m10 or m12, before getting into vintage ones!
  5. .......and I know where the AS3 is.......

  7. Dave Stuart is great and I would highly recommend him. DRS Marine.
  8. We're very proud of our cantilevered shelf adjacent to a railway......... ?
  9. And technically part of the Grand Union network.......
  10. I would rather pay more for a better produced hull with better underwater shape, fully welded guards and a boat that is built to be a boat rather than a boat which compromises all of the above for more living space and a roof which is so curvaceous it wouldn't look out of place on a house built by Bilbo Baggins in Hobbiton.

  12. To add....... Any water in the bilge will drain to the lowest point where the bilge pump is. Alot of older boats had a wet bilge with front well decks lower than the waterline.
  13. This just in from the Book of Face.......
  14. And I can say that being a flyman!
  15. Muttering is something flymen are really good at!!!!
  16. It's not ideally sited for marine, however, due to the overlap with rope and rigging, Beales thrived within the theatre industry, and, at the heart of the west end has been a very handy go to chandlers and ironmongers when shows are being installed and you need that "something" at short notice.
  17. Pete retired when we took over in 2016, my dad is still involved but has taking a step back, he is on here as Hughc. My brother is now a partner in the business, also on here as tomc, we always look forward to welcoming forum members to Langley Mill and are currently developing plans to further improve the yard to be able to grow the business.. Kind regards Dan
  18. It wouldn't be the end of the world if those moorings weren't reinstated, you inevitably meet boats on that bend, and the moorings on the offside hinder being able to approach the bend correctly, especially with a pair.
  19. Congratulations on your purchase! Forum member GSer owned her about ten years ago, he hasn't been on here since 2018 but might be worth a PM? Kind regards Dan

  21. 2 pack blacking on a survey is now as common as disclaimers and the contact details of the surveyor. Whilst there is no doubt it can be a superior product if applied properly, bitumen can be fine if the correct prep work is carried out. We have seen several instances of 2 pack falling off in sheets, and also bitumen clinging on with very little corrosion to 30 year old hulls.... Arguments for both I reckon! Kind regards Dan
  22. There was also a load of fruit trees planted as MK was built at the insistence of the planners, along the canalside poplars are various fruit trees lurking, waiting to be found!
