  1. We bought are boat in 2001 and sold it in 2017, never had a new water pump or a new shower pump either.
  2. There is no slack on the steering chain it would never pass the MCA inspection if there was, I think she was smelling the bottom hence the need for plenty of helm on.
  3. Like the part were they sailed on the Danny down the Weaver..
  4. Notice Alert Weaver Navigation Starts At: Marsh Lock Ends At: Marsh Lock Saturday 2 June 2018 12:00 until further notice Type: Navigation Closure Reason: Boat damage Update on 28/08/2018: Following the completion of additional inspection and dive work last week, our engineers have been able to better assess the condition of the damaged gate. Whilst the inspection confirmed that operation using the damaged gate is not achievable; procedures are being developed to allow a limited passage through the lock utilising the undamaged gate. Details of the navigation restrictions will be confirmed later this week. Major gate repairs are still required to allow full operation of the lock and these are now scheduled in the winter works programme.
  5. Think the landed on the false bow,
  6. There would be no crew on the tow, normal to tow dead ship like this, they should have had a paint mark on the waterline of the Oliver Cromwell which is normal on this sort of tow.
  7. I wonder why they did not have a stern tug to help them into the lock ..?
  8. From the original owners. http://river.englishholidaycruises.co.uk/oliver-cromwell-sinks-in-the-irish-sea-on-the-way-to-coleraine-n-ireland/
  9. Bingley 5 rise and Grindley Brook I think are still full time lock keepers
