    Canal plan

    You could always adopt the working boaters method - commit it all to memory! As may of them were unable to read or write maps, signposts books were of no use to them.😊

    Spanish Windlass

    George has explained the operation. Home made not bought. When we had some old mahogany framed windows replaced I kept the wood and made one from that.

    Spanish Windlass

    Atherstone Wedge will do. Useful on the slow filling locks of said flight too.
  4. Was Ratcliffe on Soar switched off then, as that is powered by coal? Ratcliffe-on-Soar Power Station is a coal-fired power station owned and operated by Uniper at Ratcliffe-on-Soar in Nottinghamshire, England. Commissioned in 1968 by the Central Electricity Generating Board, the station has a capacity of 2,000 MW.

    Ultima & Thule.

    I think you mean Phil Underwood, doesn't Peter Underwood runs a less than complimentary canal "news" site? Thank you Biscuits, shame if they have retired from boating, a lovely couple.

    Ultima & Thule.

    Found these pictures on Facebook dated 19th April: Have Ken & Mary Nelson sold Ultima & Thule?

    Why do we tend to forget?

    This gent was in Coventry City Centre yesterday asking passers by if they had seen a dragon. I said "no but I can go and get the mother in law if you like." Said dragon duly appeared.

    You've forgotten Buzby. We knew them as The Seven Inch Club and the Dancing Prat. Plus of course the Smarties

    What can a flood lock be used for?

    I believe a certain boater of this parish uses one on the Soar to moor in, in times of flood. 😃

    The "polo" shape is listed as a trade mark. If one delves deeper into the site one finds these also: https://trademarks.ipo.gov.uk/ipo-tmowner/page/search?id=74738&domain=1&app=0&mark=UK00003273512

    star class boat Pegasus

    Could the line be tied to the hole in the rudder to keep it central as there appears to be no tiller and strings?
