  3. England didnt have a single ice day this winter(where daytime temperatures do not rise above zero), winterising boats is becoming a thing of the past in the Southern half of the UK.

  6. Your panels will give you more on a cold frosty mid March late morning than a hot July day.
  7. I have been screamed at whilst ascending lock 6 by a vlockie who told me I was wrong to turn a lock against a boat that hadnt even entered lock 5 yet. All lockies then took refuge in the T hut until I had opened the last gate of top lock.

  9. You've got a widebeam, why are you struggling to squeeze it in....just asking?

  11. We always find that customers who wish to continue long conversations about the weather, how far they cruised for the last 10 years and how much they spent on the boat can be quickly brought to leave by letting them known that they are paying for our listening time as part of the job.😉
  12. Ah yes, all that fencing and scaffolding appeared by magic overnight. Looks to me like 2 visiting managers stopping 2 guys working....perhaps to find out how it's going, or are there any problems, or do they need any additional kit/supplies, or is it Tea Break time.
  13. They can threaten all they like. The brokerage fee is acceptable, but the other fee unenforceable and you dont have to tell them anything, just that your marina fee paying days are over(after you have sold it if course) We hear it all the time, ...marina says they can only sell their boat through XYZB brokerage whilst moored there(which is kind of acceptable)....all they have to do is move it out of the marina , or get a boat mover. However, there are marinas that say they want a cut even when the boat has been moved out!!
  14. She tried to sell it at a knockdown price quickly, CRT and Police were informed. CRT then sectioned the boat swiftly and removed it from the canal, it was lifted out by Tuckeys.

  18. The only engine I ever wanted other than a Gardner was a Kelvin, magnificent engineering and you could see bits moving. I briefly met Kevin about 12 years ago whilst talking to the then owner of RWDavies Enid, lovely chap, complemented me on my nicely turned out metronome. I only found out who he was afterwards. A man who will be remembered well long after he has gone.

  21. Hire boats started at the end of last week in the middle of Storm Eunice....Easter will be when it kicks off properly unless there is an unseasonably warm and sunny spring weekend beforehand. This years holidays may be impacted by the idiot Putins war games, with the cost of diesel set to rocket, and possibility of Eastern Mediterranean holidays(especially to Turkey) in jeopardy if the trouble spreads.

  23. One answer perhaps...worth a read.
