  2. Michael is very thorough, although does suffer the 'non-working bilge pump' trait which seems to be a viral condition through all the surveyors this autumn.
  3. I bought a set of these mobile phone lenses once, tried them when I got home and have never seen them since.

  6. You can if it's our Babbage, all the dogs advice is steer clear.
  7. River Nene gone back into Strong Stream Advice again this morning.....after at least 3 days of openness.
  8. It was do-able until today - the forecast weather for the next week means that it may well become unsafe for narrowboats again pretty quickly. You may be able to do it in stages, get to Beeston and see what the levels are like. The worst section (flow wise) is just below Cranfleet lock where you may have to run at high revs. The Soar rises quickly and tends too go down quickly too, the Trent once it goes up is pretty slow to drop back to reasonable levels - the flow is as important as the height. It is 1 days trip - tommorow could be the last chance for a while.
  9. What did I tell you the other day..... more like CrapaJeffster(Jeff Whyatt) in tribute to the sky high price rises and determination to be the Park Homes of the waterways. from his Linkedin..... Joined in 2014 with the prime objective of modernising the business, improving performance and bringing a much stronger focus on the customer.As at 2017 we are well placed having succeeded in most of our strategic goalsWe have some great plans for the future including Floating home developments and Lodges
  10. No thanks, a real big lottery win for me would see 7' 2" narrows developed along the entire GU and K&A.(Just to keep MrFincher happy)
  11. I've been through Braunston this morning and can confirm that Chertsey has arrived .😎
  12. It might be a 10 lock flight or some tourist attraction of a gimmickz and a bit of dredging , but would cut out Hatton and Stratford canal locks......I'm all for it.
  13. A boat was lifted out for a survey early last year at a brokerage near you Alan, the sides looked immaculate even though the boat was 30 years old and we all thought it would sail through the survey. The baseplate was pitted to 7-8mm along its whole length, the sides were almost perfect. It also had a knackered poo tank, rear gas locker floor, gear box, stern gear. The buyers walked away with their deposit and the seller had no choice but to pay Roger Farringdon for a new baseplate and the other works to be fixed. It sold again almost straight away.
