    MANCHESTER SHIP CANAL - a guide. June 2018

    When we were there in September, we went sent a map showing the visitor mooring. There is no jetty, you just moor up against the wall.

    Sign writing

    I wasn’t talking about changing what was there, I was talking about freshening up existing sign writing when the shading etc has faded a bit.

    Sign writing

    It is. And it can be touched up. Some friends got their sign writer to do this after about ten years, and it looked like new again. Proper sign writers work surprisingly quickly even when starting from scratch, so touching up what’s already there can be done in very little time.

    MANCHESTER SHIP CANAL - a guide. June 2018

    I can’t see where you moored at Salford because your maps just show me where I am now. But the designated mooring is by the Holiday Inn Express, by the service block. The local council also like people to tell them if they’re planning to spend the night there. There seem to be a few more people doing this trip, not least because of the breach. I suspect this will mean one of two things: either the MSC people will get more used to narrowboats; or they’ll do more to try to discourage them!

    Newboat swap-outs

    That’s a boat fitted out by a small firm. If you search the guy’s name you’ll find his Facebook page. if you particularly like his work, why not get in touch with him and ask if he ever does boat’s with the things you want, and if so how much would it cost. Builders like this often just build boats on spec and then put the up for sale, but they often make each boat different and might be open to building one to your requirement. This may, however, result in you having to sign a contract on a yet-to-be-built boat, and making stage payments etc.

    The North West is Closed

    Is the culvert a CRT asset? The one on the W&E that collapsed the other week belongs to Severn Trent Water —which presumably means they’ll be paying to fix it. Does anyone know who owns this one?

    Glad you're not in charge of spelling.
  8. Or perhaps anything less.
  9. We call that the horse piss one!
  10. 28 is a maximum! When we did it the other day, there was a boat ahead which appeared to be at least half way through, and we caught them up before the end.
  11. 40 minutes? I usually aim for 28! Edited to add: Did you spot the side shaft?

    A Message from Richard Parry to Boaters

    At certain times, I guess even people who own a boat wouldn't necessarily be able to say they'd been on one in the previous two weeks.

    It's actually a quote from the West Mids Fire spokesman, but don't let that stop you having a go at the journo.

    And that's just the current grant -- what they're worried about is what happens when the current 15 year agreement runs out. There's no guarantee of any government funding after that.

    A Message from Richard Parry to Boaters

    There are these notes made by Andy Tidy from the National Users Forum, and if you ask Richard Parry he'll tell you, as this post in another thread demonstrates.
