    PRM 150 oil change

    Quite a few people on this discussion used to be in the shared Ownerships club. Interesting then that Allen Mathews advocated not doing an oil change on the gearbox until the end of the season. This usually meant the box had done 1000 hours plus between oil changes and I don't recall any stories of gearbox failure.

    Boiler relay

    Fair enough but I still think there ought to be a simple way to select the correct relay, a combination of colour and pin positions perhaps.

    Who in their right mind would use the same coloured casing for two products which clearly are not the same at all.

    Marple Lock 11 update

    Sadly, I think Nick's curiosity is unlikely to be satisfied. Unlike the rebuild of lock 15? you can't get near. Security fencing ranges from the top of lock 10 to the bottom of lock 12.

    Boat Rescued from Non Navigable Trent

    Perhaps there's nothing wrong with their education but they haven't been to the opticians recently.

    Marple Lock 11 update

    I'm not sure whether or not that is a religious quip Mac. It was only my guesstimate but Good Friday feels about right. It is Stockport MBC that has granted the closure of the towpath for the duration of the works. Completely off topic but the diversion takes you past the Marple war memorial. I was saddened but pleased to see that it has been updated to include a recent casualty who lost their life in Afghanistan.

    Marple Lock 11 update

    I popped along to the Marple flight today. It was pretty damp. No shortage of water. The good news is work has started on lock 11. The towpath has been sealed off and the compound prepared for portacabins and machinery. On the security fencing is a notice informing everyone that permission has been granted for the towpath to be closed for approximately 25 weeks. So target opening date is Good Friday 2019

    Everyone will comply with that condition just by nipping to Morrisons once a week.

    New Marina Likely To Get Planning Permission

    Planning permission was granted for a marina at Ingestre on the T & M but I notice the parcel of land is now up for sale. The locals are doing their best to stimie the landowner by painting out the "For Sale" signs. Has anyone got any more detail?

    No. The terms and conditions quoted are those of the Castle Marinas group. This group includes Nottingham Castle Marina but also includes King's Bromley, Ventnor Farm and one or two others. The section I copied and pasted doesn't apply at Nottingham but is applicable in their other marinas.

    I wrote it because it stuck in my mind. I can't find it using the search facility on the forum but it may be from conversation with someone who once moored there. Their terms and conditionsjust vaguely talk about transferring your mooring contract to a different grade if they think you are anything other than a leisure boater. The fact they say this includes transferring you to a resedential rate implies there are other rates they might impose.

    A damp feeling........

    3) the hex on the valve has been chewed by a pipe wrench or similar. On that basis, the nylon reinforced pipe doesn't look like it was the original pumbing. Someone has definitely done a bodge

    Yes, found this in the terms and conditions of Castle Marinas 28. Occupation of Vessels 28.1 With the exception of Vessels moored at Nottingham Castle Marina, the Owner shall not live permanently on board the Vessel nor shall they encourage or permit anyone else to do so, without the prior written permission of the Company. 28.2 The Company reserve the right to seek confirmation from the Owners who have purchased a leisure mooring that they are using the mooring in accordance with the Contract and not using the Marina for residential purposes. 28.3 Where appropriate, the Company reserves the right to transfer the Vessel’s mooring to a different Grade, including a residential mooring grade and to charge the Owner the difference in mooring fees at any point during the Contract or upon renewal of the contract if it considers that the Owner is using the Marina for residential purposes. It then goes on to talk about passing on Council Tax if levied by the council which seems fair enough. It would be interesting to know if this has ever been invoked and what the other types of contract other than leisure or resedential there are Perhaps Ditchcrawler has some insight. He moored there for some time although I got the impression he rarely spent more than a single night tied up in the marina.

    I vaguely recall something similar for Kings Bromley Marina. Something along the lines of if you spent more than 21 nights on board in any one year there would be a surcharge. Not sure if this ever got implemented and whether it was policy of the current owners but I think it was discussed on here at the time.
