    Loking for information on boating, please.

    The engine room on a narrow boat isn’t much different to cruisers engine room, just smaller, so if they are needed on a cruiser then they should be needed on a narrow/widebeam.

    Never understood why they are on some boats fitted with diesel engines, maybe it sounds a sensible thing to have, or just a way to bump up the price.

    Retro fitting webasto heater

    Try going back to Stokeboats and ask them seeing as how they fitted it.

    Getting rid of chimney drip

    I have recently seen one boat with a try around the base of the chimney about 1” deep.

    Koi Carp?

    Walking round Stourport basins the other day and noticed several large carp, one of which appeared to be a Koi Carp, has anyone else noticed this fish, must have been 18” long and yellow/gold in colour.

    Mooring between Reading and Teddington

    Opposite the town pontoon moorings, hard to see the signs Better Boating, Caversham , Reading for Diesel, Self Declare, don’t know the price, but one of the cheapest. You could also give Chris, fuel boat, a ring 07921694287 and find out if he is about. Abingdon, near the bridge, was also cheap but that was 2 years ago.

    There are also moorings on the right side, the signs are hidden in the foliage.

    Droitwich Barge Canal

    Going up the canal from the Severn end, bridge 15 has a width restriction of 7ft. Coming from the W&B end is also 7ft, so the fat boats must have been craned in and why anyone should do that is beyond me.

    Droitwich Barge Canal

    Having recently been up and back down the Droitwich Barge Canal, from the Severn to bride 14, in our wide beam, I would just like to let others know that there are NO facilities of any sort on this canal for wide beams, no water points, no pump outs, no Elsan disposal, no rubbish disposal and no moorings near Droitwich, so you can’t even visit the town. The lock gates are heavy to move and so is the paddle gear, you need muscle. The scenery on the other hand is very nice, when you can see it through the reeds, you can’t even see the tow path. The only places we found to moor up were just above lock 2, official visitor mooring, and lock 6 on the offside directly above the lock. The winding hole just below bridge 14 looks like it will only take a 65’ boat, no signs denoting it as a winding hole. When we turned there of course there was someone fishing there and he got quite upset, tough.

    Mooring between Oxford and Reading

    There is a mooring before railway bridge on the left hand side, also mooring on the right hand side of the island that’s before railway bridge.
