  1. Even more impressive is that it's called NB Facebook...log in for details....how many potential customers does that lose.
  2. Is this the preliminary, 1st, 2nd or Revised edition??

  4. He doesnt, he enjoys debate and other opinions. You make it your days enjoyment to attack the poster not the content yet again, as you do with anything CRT related.

  6. I respond to your post as you give out bad advice about painting, not for the first time either.

    Bank notes.

    Absolutely, can we divert the bomber to the Commons instead..
  8. Your advice is getting worse, there is no way you should be putting paint on anywhere near 5 at this time of year. If outside, the painting season has pretty much finished if you want anything other than a rubbish job that has to be corrected next year.

  10. Chris John will come along in a minute and defend CRT in it's wellbeing on the waterways magical musical tour.
  11. The answer is NO. Do you ever read what someone says, or just make it up as you think?? I'll be able to jet wash, but am unable to get under to fully sand down to bare steel. Do you think would still be worthwhile using even if just roughly prepared
  12. The bins facility was removed from the Old PumpHouse below the first half of the Wilmcote flight the week after Jubilee meaning that the only ones left were at valley wharf, which was fully moored up with boats when we passed in June.

  17. I'm suprised that this wasnt stuck in the budget today by a giggling Kwasi Kwarteng.. ."hey, you boaters cant laugh, I'm gonna shaft you too unless you earn more than £150k a year..."...then it's irrelevant anyway.
  18. You really dont add anything to the forum with your constant aggressive opposite stance to anything CRT-wise discussed. Alan is referring to the ongoing CRT management failure of the Volockies, not the lockies themselves. I stick by my previous summing up of your character.
  19. So was the voloky not going up to locks 6 and 7 anyway to lock them.... If the Welshys hired from Clifton, Willow Wren or Rose Narrowboats, that was probably the first lock they had done on their own, if the Volocky was so eager to get home for dinner he had just worked them through the bottom lock without asking, and not shown them what to do, then he is probably just as much as fault as they are....if not more so.
  20. Drop 2 paddles, lock fills in a minutes, given they were probably half way up anyway. Let them out, lock gates, perhaps 10 minutes longer. Perhaps he/she needs to review their catering arrangements.
  21. It will be this year.... For those in houses..
  22. We (Kath and I) went up Hatton the week before Jubilee along with a hire boat on the Sunday, as we passed the 'Welcome Hut' at 2.30pm, 2 cars drove off with blue sweatshirted human beans inside. We came down Hatton on our own on the Saturday of Jubilee weekend, weather was light drizzle and windy, passing the "Welcome Shed' with open doors at just after 12.30pm. There were 3 cars there so didnt want to disturb their menage a twa... nobody even came out to look. We caught up to a pair of private boats going slowly down at about 19, so just toddled along helping them by shutting their gates as they only had 6 crew. Moored above the Cape and went for a damn good dinner.
  23. The BCS spare props are available from Peachments, although will now probably be a 6 blade if your existing one was only 3.
