    Cover for tiller bearing

    The best solution is fit a splash washer below the counter and use lots of grease ( not many people realise there is a grease nipple) and fill the void at the top with a good finger gull of grease to stop water collecting on the top of the bearing.

    Manchester house boat row.

    Stick it on the main line and then see what happens.
  11. 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.
