    A fair bit of work for a bricky to do there, they could always look for the old ones!

    Manchester house boat row.

    Stick it on the main line and then see what happens.
  5. I think that with all these new odd shaped boats that are appearing on our canals there is a opportunity for a new "I Spy" book of canal boats.

    District enforcement mooring fine Reading

    In Goring 300yds below lock on right hand side it said to put £10:00 in envelope and put it in letterbox which was attached to a large fenced off house, it said all monies went to charity. The site previously ( I thought) was a EA site.

    District enforcement mooring fine Reading

    Well I stopped at Tescos in Reading this morning at 0900, only two boats there a f/glass wide beam with a middle aged couple who could not make head nor tails of the the signs, lots of bits had been scratched off, so the left straight away, the other boat was just leaving having spent the night there, he thought as I have spent £80 in Tescos that was enough outlay. By which time Mr's A had returned after a 'sprint" shop and we left. It is a nice new jetty with plenty of length and rings.

    Weston Marsh Lock, Weaver Navigation closed UFN

    Probably be cheaper to reinstall the lock off the Runcorn & Weston, might give the powers to be the nudge to reopen Runcorn locks.

    Misaligned engine

    I think you are referring to a R&D isolating coupling, which a really for isolating stray current. Having said that there is a few" thou' of tolerance in it.
