  1. Houseboat certs. Granted when canal was closed. Rickmansworth and bulls bridge had similar. Anything that fits on the pontoon
  2. Havent lit, mighty lister normally acts as storage heater but we tied early today. Feet regretting.

  4. Both reports are wrong. Both boats were new liveaboards who had decided that mooring in the tunnel had benefits. Firstly they could find somewhere to tie up that was quiet. Secondly they thought it might be warm and cosy to keep the rooftop crap dry Thirdly no pesky enforcement staff would bother them. It went horribly wrong on the re opening of canals post covid when some hire boat decided to go through the fume filled tunnel, the smoke caused by the incessant running of knackered 1.5 bmcs because the solar wasnt working well. This report came from Conservative hq, so must be wholly accurate. The hirer was requested to do a U turn at the entrance to the tunnel ,but claimed it was impossible. The incident was deemed to be his fault.
  5. Started the engine at 0800 as normal, by 0810 was up to armpits in electrical system . Ammeter flicked over to 60a and then dead. Charge lights out but volts on floor. Advec warning light fluctuating on and off. Before tearing off the alternator, had a little poke around ammeter which is engine mounted on a panel. Restarted engine and fiddled with ammeter wires. Result ammeter swung into life with a happy collection of sparks. Switched off. Investigation evidenced the insulated bracket had failed and as the threaded bars that hold it are also the terminals for the meter the obvious was happening. Assumed during engine rebuild nut not done up tight enough allowing chatter and wearing out of insulation, it is a lister! Replaced with the insulated bracket from the old ammeter, and off we went. Then the head fell off the broom.

  12. Ive got a couple of those phones plus batteries and chargers. The downside is they are australian models, so to work here you have to stand on your head ( or hold them upside down) and shout strewth when you finally get a connection. Neither of those minor irritations will bother a man of your sensitivity I am sure. There are two other slight issues to overcome firstly they have australia ‘kill the poor’ mains plugs. Made out of tin foil and chocolate, and secondly they have a strange answerphone system that grossly offends anyone trying to leave a missive. Not sure why this is.
  13. Our 18 hp lister never gets warm enough and never works hard enough on modern canals. it needs a full load and a loaded butty to tow to do any work. Grand Unions were fitted from russels from new and designed for 6 mph. So if anything you are over powered.
