    simple fix; Two L shaped pieces of wood lined with felt at 120 and 240 degrees with a turn button catch at the top. Need to make sure the glass is in a safe place though.

  5. Some of the marina's have liveaboards, some don't, you will need to contact each marina as it is not openly advertised. Ventnor where we stayed first, doesn't allow liveaboards (planning issues) but they are happy for you to stay on board for a week to 10 days or so but get a bit twitchy if you try to extend it beyond that. Wigrams have both leisure and liveaboards as does Kings Bromley. We have not stayed at any of the others. In the canal world Ventnor still lives under the shadow of the previous owner, by some, but all is well there now. In line with many other marinas and CRT Castle have requested that leisure boaters do not stay overnight but are happy for "you" to visit for day trips whilst the spectre of Covid19 hovers over us all. I have no connection with Castle Marina's apart from being a satisfied customer.
  6. Castle Marina's have a few scattered around the Midlands and further afield. https://www.castlemarinas.co.uk/home Having stayed in two, can happily recommend them.
  7. The above has sorted your back end. Engine? How about a nice Bolinder.
  8. There was the back end of a boat going spare at Braunston a while ago. Don't know if it is still available........................

  10. PRESS RELEASE CANAL & RIVER TRUST CHARITY APPEALS FOR HAPPY WATERWAY MEMORIES TO SHARE ON SOCIAL MEDIA Waterways and well-being charity, the Canal & River Trust is appealing for everyone to take a trip down memory lane and share recollections of happy times by water on social media. Whether it’s a boating honeymoon, the first sighting of an otter or just a family walk in the sunshine, the Trust, which cares for 2,000 miles of waterways, would love to see your photos, films and hear your inspirational stories. Nicky Wakeford, head of marketing for the Canal & River Trust, said: “Sharing is caring. We would love to see your happy memories and share them to make others smile, particularly in these difficult times when many people are still indoors. “Anything by a water fits the bill - it could be birdwatching at sunset, crossing a landmark aqueduct or walks with your dog. We know people feel happier and healthier by water so we want to share your special moments and inspire other people to explore the wonderful canals and rivers on their doorstep. “Canal towpaths have remained open throughout the coronavirus lockdown and provide a great place for daily exercise. However some waterside paths are narrow so it’s vitally important for people to abide by current social distancing guidance and share the space sensibly. Cyclists particularly need to ride slowly and give way to pedestrians. Then everyone can enjoy being by water creating memories!” Stan Cullimore, musician with indie rock band The Housemartins, treasures many happy holidays aboard a narrowboat. He recalls: “Some of my favourite memories are the family holidays we have taken on Britain’s canals over the years. To this day, there is nothing I find more relaxing than walking the dog along the towpath, sitting on the back of a boat watching the world go by or just simply being afloat. It’s perfect”. Post your pictures and short videos, along with a message about your waterway memory, on Twitter or Instagram using #CanalMemories. www.canalrivertrust.org.uk ENDS
  11. The draught excluder in my sliding window is coming unstuck. I already have some replacement. It is self adhesive. Last time I replaced it I couldn't get it straight as the window doesn't lift out and the gap is quite small. Any tips for refitting please?
  12. A Jack Russell Border terrier cross, does have Yorkie colouring though. She loves walking along towpaths. Took her to Hatton as the paths are wide and it is easy to maintain distance.
  13. Rose (Jack) Skinner and here daughter Joyce. I believe the photographer was in a little boat towed behing Gertrude.
