  7. Big article in today's Torygraph property section all about buying a boat and living in london. The lady says it's all very easy and saving her a shed load of money. I wonder if this is an idea which will catch on, even CRT are quoted as saying it is a good idea. I would like to add a link but there doesn't appear to be one yet.
  8. Successfully completed the second leg of our Hants/Surrey canal cycling adventure. The Wey is not a patch on the Basingstoke in the beauty stakes. Guildford seems to have chosen to turn its back on it. But the White House did an excellent London Pride. The towpath was fairly ropey in places. obviously I can't comment on the navigation of the Basingstoke but the one boat i did see appeared to moving easily enough. The locks didn't seem to be overly leaky compared to others I have seen but as they only have one set of paddles I would imagine they would be woefully slow to operate. there seemed to be quite a lot of work being undertaken, such as vegetation being cut back. Certainly more than is done on our local canals.
  9. Today the wife and I cycled from Greywell tunnel to Woking along the canal. I would say the Basingstoke Canal has to be the prettiest canal on the system, especially at this time of year. Towpath in excellent condition, castles, pubs and no strings of linear boat moorings. Saw one boat on the move. Tomorrow we are going to finish it off and then head down to Godalming. It's supposed to be november, feels like May!

  11. In the 70's a butty was regarded as a 70ft canoe for licensing purposes on the Thames. Is this still the same today?
  12. Today's charity shop trawl produced a most peculiar item. A Habitat plate, made of bone china, with a lace plate printed on it. I paid £1 and have since looked it up on Ebay. Like this http://www.ebay.co.uk/itm/Habitat-Ella-Doran-JOANIE-Dessert-Plates-21-5cm-set-of-3-/172236013648
  13. I remember a wooden butty 70ft with a clinker conversion in the early 70's called 'Edwina M' (after Mrs Mountbatten I expect). It had a lovely Lister CE2 and a brick open fireplace with a boiler in the chimney. I was told it had been built pre war (WW2) solely for pleasure and had never been worked. It was for sale on the Northern Stratford for £500 (I think). I always wish I had bought it
  14. National already fitted but would only be started with a generous application of easy start. Even in summer.
