  1. Various boatyards/marinas in Ely. Railway station within walking distance.

  3. I would suggest that allowing the entire front well to flood with diesel is rather stretching the concept of configuring the fuel filling point so that any spillage goes overboard. But a BSS inspector might accept it.
  4. I think this chap has touched up his bottom with Zinger (or similar). .

    Presumably this: https://www.bbc.co.uk/news/entertainment-arts-47624894
  6. And while you are at it you might want to modify that diesel tank so that it complies with the Boat Safety Scheme.
  7. And I it really does need a welded repair, it would be usual for the welder to supply whatever steel is needed. He will need to cut it to the right size and shape. It is not something you need to buy beforehand.
  8. Over 0.3m below the Boxing Day 2015 flood at Wakefield according to gaugemap. https://www.gaugemap.co.uk/#!Detail/1978/2096
  9. I don't think it's quite that bad. The DCLG guidance states that the NBTA "may assist" in providing data. It is not a requirement that LA's even consult NBTA, let alone follow their guidance on carrying out an assessment. That said, there is a risk that L.A. staff, with no other information or guidance, may take the easy option.
  10. So what were Nuneaton and Barnes carrying that can't be seen in the photo below (and confused the caption writer) yet was heavy enough to load them down almost to the top guard?
  11. The NBTA are relying on the bit in brackets: " 42 day temporary moorings (or longer if their circumstances require it) ". Some seem to deem the entire duration of their children's education as meeting the "circumstances requrie it" test.
  12. A cheaper one - but you have to wait for delivery from China. https://www.ebay.co.uk/itm/DC-12V-24V-Hot-Water-Circulation-Pump-Solar-Water-Pump-Brushless-Motor-5m-Lift/263131664253?_trkparms=aid%3D888007%26algo%3DDISC.MBE%26ao%3D1%26asc%3D20140328180637%26meid%3D6a608f92261f41ec9f32f2869f4d0e95%26pid%3D100009%26rk%3D1%26rkt%3D1%26mehot%3Dpp%26sd%3D152600574418%26itm%3D263131664253&_trksid=p2047675.c100009.m1982 Except it seems to be running backwards!
  13. This is simply the NBTA's own interpretation of the Housing and Planning Act 2016 requirements for Local Authorities, presented with their particular slant on such matters, and has no 'official' status. That said, some hard-pressed local authority staff, with limited resources and knowledge may be tempted use it as a basis for their decisions and actions. The bit about LA's permitting stays of up to 42 days where they are riparian owners is, I think, aimed at those riverside local authorities who have implemented or are proposing very onerous mooring time limits on public land - specifically to prevent CMers. I don't think it will have any impact on CRT whose own 14 day limits are based on different legislation.
  14. I tried it in a hire boat some 30 years ago. As soon as we tried to go beyond the town moorings we went hard aground on a gravel bar. I assume it was placed there deliberately to prevent all but the shallowest draft boats going any further - and to protect the commercial interests of the horse drawn trip boat. I seem to recall themodern Roger Fuller butty Phoebe made the trip all the way up to Horseshoe Falls several years ago.
