  1. If you're in lane 1, and don't change lanes to pass the middle lane hogger, then you're legal as you're traveling in a lane which is moving faster than the outer lane.
  2. Deleted as point already made above.
  3. An example of how NOT to use a fire extinguisher! 1) wrong type (No "A" rating for CO2 ) 2) bad aim. Objective is to blanket the fire, not blast it.
  4. Probably unwise in a wide beam built for inland waters. A friend of mine set out from the Clyde in a similar vessel with the intention of navigating the Crinan and Caledonian canals. Made it to Rothesay, with assistance from RNLI, before deciding discretion was the better part of valour!
  5. Will make a change from "Broken down, Waiting for parts.", I suppose!
  6. As above, the cause is damp, plus current leakage to the hull, which has caused electrolytic corrosion of the the copper and tin.
  7. This post cannot be displayed because it is in a forum which requires at least 10 posts to view.
  8. The Land Reform (Scotland) Act 2003 amended the Trespass Act. It added subsection 2, which reads : "Subsection (1) above does not extend to anything done by a person in the exercise of the access rights created by the Land Reform (Scotland) Act 2003" Provided that the Land Reform Act is complied with, the Trespass Act doesn't apply. However, the Land Reform Act does include a requirement to act responsibly, and comply with the Access Code, In practice, I don't think it makes much difference.

  10. Scotland has had a Trespass Act since 1865. The relevant part reads (Maximum fine currently £200) Doesn't help with the Traveller problem, though : it's not considered Politically Correct or Advisable to apply it to them!
  11. Hopefully, there will be a period of hard frost this winter, which should kill it off. Boat movements also help. It was quite common on the Edinburgh and Glasgow Union Canal in the 1990s, prior to the re-opening. It used to survive the winter under bridges, and spread out in the spring when the warmer weather arrived.
  12. .. to say nothing of the possibility of towing a boat with it ...
  13. Do CaRT come to the same business arrangement with hire fleets as Scottish Canals do? i.e. a percentage of turnover. (The reason the hire fleets on the Forth and Clyde are now managed by Scottish Canals, rather than by privaye or charitable enterprise! )
  14. Is this after the engine has been run? Could it just be the calorifier cooling down? Do you have an accumulator and/or expansion vessel?
