  1. You also need to be aware that any painter worth their salt will have a queue of two years plus.
  2. It was moored at Stone until 2019. The owners decided to sell and put some effort in to tidying it up. They went on a final cruise towards Tixall and we caught them up because they were having problems. The engine refused to run at more than tickover. They made it as far as Great Haywood, got it fixed and put it on brokerage.
  3. The rear pram hood was existent during its 4? year stay at Aston Marina. The red paint is erring towards pink these days.
  4. I've held the opinion that most solicitors bread and butter work could easily be offshored. We did probate for my mother and have just started it for my father in law. It's all very straight forward. Much less so though if you are wealthy and have been avoiding the taxman according to a friend who ended up handing his over to the professionals.
  5. I'd also recommend The Little Chimney company. Afloat usually around Alvecote
  6. A few years ago I took a handling course with Top Lock training at the northern end of the Macc. At that time the owners of Top Lock training were of the opinion that the Macc was suffering from lack of funds due to them being diverted to the western side of the Huddersfield. No idea if they knew this for certain.

  8. You might well find that the tube the pela comes with gets blocked by the crap or rust particles from the bottom of the tank. It's useful to have a piece of wire you can isert to relieve the blockage when necessary. First time i tried it on a 20 year old boat I got half a gallon of rubbish from the bottom of the tank. You'll need a couple of gallon containers to let the diesel settle in.
  9. We had to queue mid channel for three days when the culvert failed above Bosley 18 months ago
  10. And the Barton Aquaduct https://player.bfi.org.uk/free/film/watch-torpedo-flotilla-visit-to-manchester-1901-1901-online?fbclid=IwAR1dnUYJQ9EQ4mh9oSYK-zqrEdmqvuttzPi6MeXyK9sZAMQug4XeCAXufyI

  13. I sneaked a look at mine last weekend on the way to get a vaccine and it is hosting lots of algae
  14. The upside for the Macc is a lack of hire boats doing the Cheshire ring until the landslide at Anderton is fixed
  15. That reminds me of a friend who had an MGB a few years back.. It had been rewired at some point. Whoever did the job must have had a spare drum of black wire. Any kind of electrical diagnosis was a nightmare.
