  1. I'll set a reminder to PM you not to watch it when it's out misery guts 😛
  2. They'd better get a hydraulic drive on that thing sharpish for sneaking through the undead!
  3. All my drivers swear by peek for their trucks
  4. You're paying for it do what you want!
  5. Arkle, and promarine spring to mind. Very high deposit percentage required, and chokingly high interest rates. They are the reason I don't have a boat. They "have to" take into account my current rent of 865 a month, despite the fact that having a live aboard I wouldn't be paying it anymore...
  6. Who are you using, if you don't mind me asking?
  7. Ooh I like that! I think boating is a perfect way to celebrate a relationship, closeness, relaxation, and slowing down!
  8. This one looked just like normal from the back, tiller with the bar still attached swinging on its own, very eerie! I imagine they had quickly disappeared below when the hail started.
  9. We timed a lunch stop rather well the other week, and after tying up the heavens opened with fat rain and hail coming down. A narrowboat passed us while we were eating, but there was no umbrella to be seen on the counter, neither was there a person! The back doors were all closed up, so presumably, there was some method of controlling this boat from inside. This must have been from the very front as there was no raised wheelhouse to provide visibility, it looked like a standard NB. Has this been seen before? How was it achieved?
  10. Thought I'd very slightly necro this to reiterate my thanks, we had a fantastic week and didn't get very wet at all. Unfortunately it has rekindled our interests in liveaboarding and we're now considering looking for a project boat to live and work on. (Idiots I know) LoneWolf it was lovely to see you, thanks for the tea!
  11. Yes, actually everything was oiled and greased and I noted to my new wife that they were the easiest paddles I'd ever wound!
  12. We went up and then down the Watford staircase yesterday, two lovely blokes on duty in the morning at 8, then 4 on duty when we came back down, grass being mown, weeds being weeded, smiles everywhere and the flight looks really nice, you can tell they are proud of "their" locks. Really helpful and genuinely nice people.
  13. We will keep an eye out! Planning to stop around Braunston tonight.
  14. Thanks everyone! We've just stopped in Braunston for a sarnie, fighting my way up the hill now. We are re-remembering how much we miss boating again now!
  15. Hi everyone, new and old :) Just wanted to pop in and say hello, Emma and I got married this weekend and were having a boating mini-moon. We've hired hector and we are going from falls Bridge to crick and back. We are currently moored South of Hillmorton locks for the night and will be going through Braunston tomorrow. So if any of you see a couple on a small boat with a tug deck and a just married sign on the rear fender please stop us and say hello! Happy Easter everyone x
