  1. I passed your boat earlish in the morning and wondered how stuck you might have been. Must be one hell of a leak somewhere in Grants Lock as water was gushing through the top gate and yet the lock was virtually empty.
  2. I fell for that one too when I was trying to find info on the Barton Aquaduct closure earlier this year. Its all on the News page..
  3. You could be onto a winner here-you just need to modify one to sound like a Gardner when its running 😀
  4. If the owner has attacked Maureen hopefully someone will attach it to the owner beforehand..
  5. Perhaps the boater in question saw this picture and thought it wasnt a bad idea after all..
  6. At the other end of the scale , I met a boat bouncing off the walls coming towards me in Braunston a few weeks ago. That had no headlight at all-which helped my vision no end but didnt do anything for his as he was about 3 foot off the tunnel side when he tried to pass me.
  7. Unlucky. Couple of days ago I was halfway up the flight at 10 am and that was after I had already helped 6 boats coming down 🙂
  8. Robin Williams done alright out of it 😁
  9. Your fisherman had a bit more space than when I passed there a couple of years ish ago. I still chuckle at the determination of the fisherman who carried on fishing despite being surrounded..
  10. I still use my 1983 Imray map for the Middle Levels. You can still read the £1.30 price sticker on it.Nothing like getting your moneys worth 😀
  11. That,ll be the one. Did a bloody fantastic job bringing that in 😀 Was that you I was talking to by the lock gates?
  12. I have just watched a widebeam come in at West Stockwith 10 minutes ago (20:15) and shall along with a couple of other boats be going out at about 7.30 tomorrow morning. Lockies here at 7..
  13. As Rassiloth says ^ I always email well in advance but this is because I generally need to be somewhere by a certain time. Have to say 10/10 to North Staffs team though- they are always prompt, efficient, helpful and friendly.
  14. If there are any 'empty slots' they will put you through early. (Should add I have been through early last three times...)
  15. Gayton had most of the boats still tied up as I passed earlier at about 3 ish- loads of people milling about and on the boats though so expect them all tomorrow 😀
