  1. What do you mean again? It's been in the same ownership for at least 20 years......................
  2. https://narrowboats.apolloduck.co.uk/boats-for-sale/narrow-boats/butty
  3. I used to pass Ruislip quite regularly when I moored at Birdingbury. At the time it was owned by Rex Wain, does he still own it? Well Yes and No......................IIRC the boat is still in C&RTS' portfolio but Rex is the custodian seeing as how C&RT have probably forgotten all about it!!!!!!!!!!!!!!
  4. We need no back up we're the Grand Union Canal Carrying Company Ltd..........................................................................and Happy New Year to you too..........................
  5. Blue @ top Red @ bottom here but I've seen other variations
  6. Wonderful construction but not my cup of tea.......................I own a Woolwich not a Josher...................we were very up to date with electric lighting.............................
  7. The picture is dated as 1940's and I'm sure the colour scheme for the cans is wartime red blue and cream and this is as stated Bulls Bridge paint shop in it's Grand Union days............. Interestingly another well known manufacturers of cans, Bococks were better known for their range of brass masthead lamps and other sea going equipment............................
  8. Look @ all those cans..............all appear to be wire handled..................long before the Joseph Ash days of BW...........
  9. That is the Lancaster Northern reaches with Farleton Knott in the background......................................
  10. I haven't seen more than two pics. of 'white' tripping boats..Rambler and Sprite........so further investigation is needed... If the archives ever open again I'm intending spending a day there............looking for 'white' boats will now be one of the tasks.............................
  11. Bit of a mystery that. I think it may well be Water Sprite/Pisces and a converted butty......................Rambler and Sprite are the only 'tripping' boats to carry a white livery AFAIK.......................................
  12. Rambler...............................Black and white image............. Top bends now................properly........................reinstated..................................
  13. Thanks Ray. My interest actually lies with the two boats breasted up in the distance, one of which is Star, the other unknown.............
  14. Is this a BW image? I have a BW postcard with the two boats in the background, one of which is Star.................................
