  1. Dry dock info

    You can't DIY at Aston anymore. Trent Valley marine run it as a commercial operation now.
  2. Dry dock info

    Ditto Stafford boat club
  3. Tiller bar length

    I believe there was a new requirement to have the arc of the tiller drawn on the deck of any hireboat but I have yet to see one.
  4. CRT Advertising for Regional Advisory Board Chairs

    Sorry Allan. Your first sentence doesn't make sence.
  5. Hey the Owls are Back.

    The Owls. Obviously! The club that sacrificed the team for a new stand in the seventies. Am I so old?
  6. Extended Stoppage Filance Lock Penkridge

    Does that mean it is now open?
  7. Known canal bottlenecks where, when, why

    New Marton Locks can be a bottleneck. They take an age to level which causes queues in peak season.
  8. If you were to buy 6.3 mm wall thickness it would be pretty heavy. My old one was 4mm and lasted 20 years. New one from MC turned out to be 3mm wall thickness.
  9. Amongst our weaponary....the comfy chair

    have a look at first furniture. They are half the price of Wilsons.
  10. Jabsco pump running on

    My pump does the same occasionally My batteries need replacing so I'm not going to worry about it.
  11. The Bridge at Napton

    The Bridge at Napton has outlived its usefulness. As mrsmelly observed there's no trade from the canal in winter and it's not within walking distance of any kind of built up area so they're just not going to get the footfall to keep a business going whether it belongs to a PubCo or not.
  12. New exhaust

    Our soon to be sold shared boat has a hospital silencer working with a Nanni engine. It is brilliant. Fisherman often don't hear us coming and people sometimes ask if the boat is electric. When we bought our own boat it came with a standard small silencer that had quite a rasp to it. Going through Harecastle tunnel resulted in Tinnitus. After putting up with it for a season I contacted TW Marine about a hospital exhaust but there just wasn't enough space. They do sell a largish non hospital silencer though which just fitted in the available space. It's not as good as a hospital silencer but it has made a significant difference. Even though we are on a trad we can now hear the engine valve gear rather than the exhaust.
  13. Ventilation people!

    I looked at my CO monitor at the weekend. It gave a reading of zero. I then asked it what the recent max was it had detected and it said 17. At what level of reading should the alarm go off? I have no idea. I looked at my CO monitor at the weekend. It gave a reading of zero. I then asked it what the recent max was it had detected and it said 17. At what level of reading should the alarm go off? I have no idea. It's alright. I found some information on the Kidde website http://www.kidde.com/home-safety/en/us/support/help-center/browse-articles/articles/what_are_the_carbon_monoxide_levels_that_will_sound_the_alarm_.aspx
  14. Liverpool horse show fire

    I've parked in there a few times too. There's nothing to burn but the vehicles. It was a typical comcrete canyon. The cars are packed in tightly though so I'm not sure how much use a sprinkler system would be.
  15. The one, the only, Dalmuir drop lock!

    I suspect that the amount of water required in the south east would likely require a rate of flow an order of magnitude greater than currently happens on the Llangollen
