  1. If that's the rescue boat on the right it needs more than a rudder fixed.
  2. Speaking of boats named "Progress", we need an update on Chris Collins' wide boat Progress at Rickmansworth. He did some great work on the wooden hull some years ago but its all gone rather quiet lately.
  3. Hartshill looking fairly tidy there. It was very overgrown when I went past there last year.
  4. Search on here for wide boat Progress. The owner drops in here occasionally.
  5. For battery terminals you need a hydraulic tool. Various are available on Ebay for around £100. I can't recommend a make as such as the one I used was ex British Rail.
  6. Some water pumps have a rubber impeller which can loose its vanes. It might be turning but not doing any pumping.
  7. Good to hear that Fulbourne is back in the water. Enjoy the show everyone.
  8. Lock maintenance crew at 39 E in Marsden yesterday. They didn't stop long so I can only assume the lock is in vgc (wink). Many boats through here over the last week. Lastly I wonder how the local businesses here would welcome another cafe boat (and I dont want the disposable cups tossed over my fence) .
  9. It might well be the Pinnocks on their way to the Cavalacde.

  12. Half the gas for twice as much - Camping Gas compared with Calor in the small cylinders. I believe there are adapters on Ebay so that can fill Camping Gas cyls from a larger Calor, but that sounds a bit dodgy to me.
  13. Uppermill is pretty and attracts alot of grockles. OK a bit posh but I love the "Arkwright" style hardware shop open 7 days a week. I think you'll find the pubs in Marsden more to your taste 😄🤣.
  14. FWIW the close up of the chip shows untidy soldering to me. So perhaps they have done something.
  15. Is the loo (gents I hope) at the Sair ? Tho thats hardly canal side ! Ah just seen the answer.
