  1. Took the boat for blacking yesterday and came past this marina on the Coventry Canal. Whitefield has apparently found a new home and grown a pram hood. For the uninitiated that is not a Potato Alien from the Smash advert on the bow, it is a pair of horns on top of a mirrored dome containing a video camera
  2. I can thoroughly recommend Simon Wain at Brinklow Boats. Made ours out of stainless steel with an inner lining. Proper copper rivets, not the "pop" variety.

  4. Did this little bridge ever receive a number? It is / was between Napton Junction and Wigram's top lock. ( Given the lock the name the working boaters knew, not the Calcutt 3.)
  5. A statement I picked up, "No such thing as foul weather, just inappropriate clothing." We tend to do most of our boating in Autumn, Winter and Spring. Our boat is a "trad" type, shut the doors behind me throttle in easy reach. I have a vent I can open at the side of the engine housing which allows heat to permeate up wards.

  9. Bill of Sale: Mca Bill Of Sale - Fill Out and Sign Printable PDF Template | signNow We are the third owners of our boat. In the paperwork were the Bill of Sale transfer from the builder / fit out company, to the first owners, the first owners to the second. We now have a Bill of Sale from the second owners to us. Ask to see all the paperwork associated with the boat, service records, log book* (if one exists) proof of past insurance, receipts of work done etc.. Most reputable owners will have kept records.

  10. Royal Yachting Association. They cater for some of the needs for inland waterways as well as Offshore and sailing. https://www.rya.org.uk/about-us/Pages/hub.aspx https://www.rya.org.uk/get-afloat/power/Pages/canal-boats-and-inland-waterways.aspx May I suggest you write your questions down so you don’t forget any you wish to ask. When looking at a boat it is easy to dream of what may be and forget some of the essentials. Also after a boat purchase it is often natural to have second thoughts. The night before we bought our boa

  13. Worth looking at the fuel control solenoid? Jammed partially open / closed? From the LPWS workshop manual trouble shooting.
  14. Cash's 100 houses. There were only 48 built though. Cash's being famous for ribbon weaving from name tapes in your school clothing to medal ribbons. Cash's - Wikipedia
