  10. No, I don't think phone line extensions are very long are they?
  11. He never mentioned hiring it, but Valerie and Jean who moored it at his yard had bought it off him at that time (they had it from 2007 until 2011). From my last conversation with Phil, they obviously never intended to travel far from the Chandlery since they even had a phone line installed. Actually, having thought about it, I'd be surprised if RUNE had been used as a hire boat since when we got it, it only had 1100 hours on the engine which worked out at only about 85hours per year running time. The funny part about it is that with it not having travelled much I was astonished wh
  12. Not only did Phil think it was good enough to fit out, RUNE was his boat for the first 7 years from 2000 until 2007, not that it went very far it seems to have spent most of it's time moored outside the Chandlery at Braunston he used to have.

  14. Sincere condolences to you and your family. Although we'd passed comments on the forum I don't think I ever had the chance to speak with Dave IRL, although I often saw 'Aeshna' when passing during the time we overwintered in Nantwich. Thanks for letting the forum know the sad news.
  15. Yes, I liked the one at Fotheringay, it was funny because when I saw the sign saying it was £5 I thought 'How do we pay that?' no need to worry, the farmer was at our door (both times) within 10 minutes, I don't know where he watches from, but he's pretty alert.
