  1. Obviously I would recommend Langley Mill....... however, if you're at the Northern end of the T and M, Northwich would be a good shout, and my choice. Let us know however if you would like us to check availability for you. Kind regards Dan Langley Mill Boatyard.

  4. You're not the first to say that.....
  5. I have several twin exhaust manifolds........ give me a shout, although I'm currently working in Vienna until the end of Nov.....
  6. looks great, i love it! We still have your art in pride of place by drydock. I hope you are both well?
  7. I didn't I'm afraid. Before my time.
  8. Looks like Linda / Victoria. Kind regards Dan
  9. This isn't going to be a cheap rebuild! Beech was quoted nearly 100k for a rebuild a year ago and material prices have grown at an exponential rate since then....
  10. You are correct, with the exception of the left hand side of the top basin........the line of the Cromford north of us is under several different ownerships......
  11. Yep, our dry dock is definitely on the Cromford, which had an end on junction with the Erewash below Langley Mill lock. The Erewash terminated in a basin where kfc and Lidl now stand, with the road bridge and lock, about 50Yds North of the "junction". Above the lock is the junction with the Nottingham, with all that remains is the Great Northern Basin. The Cromford extends about 1/4 mile through our moorings to the current head of navigation which is partially private waters. Kind regards Dan
  12. I would say have a good look at the builders and styles of boats they build, sadly these days, most boats are built to maximise internal space, and therefore tumblehome is decreased, and more importantly swim and bow lengths are drastically shortened and as a result boats won't swim well, props can't get enough water, and so they can't perform as well when cruising. There are lovely wide beams out there, more of a Dutch barge style than wide beam narrowboat, which would give the space you need whilst still being responsive at the controls. Good luck with your search, you won't regret it! Kind regards Dan
  13. No, it's an icebreaker which used to moor by the narrows into the top basin. Dan's is still on the market. https://www.apolloduck.co.uk/boat/gorton-54-traditional-for-sale/674850
  14. Give us a shout if you need anything, my brother has a few Kelvin spares, including a few J bits I think, and has worked on that engine. She moored with us once the cabin was completed until May this year.
  15. Congratulations on your imminent purchase. She is a lovely boat, she moored with us for a while at Langley Mill, if you need any help with the Kelvin, give us a shout, we have a Kelvin expert on site! Best of luck! Dan
  16. I seem to remember it's a pins job, ho hard edge, possibly opposite the boatyard??? Vikki doesn't let me talk about Stratford.... we could never stop there due to lack of moorings!! Dan
  17. Ha ha, you never know, they'd probably quite like a tug style, go off on a tangent and get something totally different from their current one...this should do it!!! https://narrowboats.apolloduck.co.uk/boat/gorton-54-traditional-for-sale/674850
  18. If I remember correctly the butty was Cygnus.
  19. Ah no worries. Have boat will boat and all that!! Hope you're all well
  20. Nice theatre. Do you need a mooring??
  21. An amazing bit of history. Thank you for taking the time to share.
  22. I am not, if you wouldn't mind sharing it?
  23. The AS3 is in my collection at Langley Mill. Kind regards Dan
  24. Depending on supplier of the stuffing box, I normally see m10 or m12, before getting into vintage ones!
