  1. Thing is I dont think it was a "throwaway post" I think you were either hoping somebody might help or suggest that it was perfectly reasonable to ask that "potential tow boat" for help. As others have suggested, unless its a dire emergency asking for a tow just because you missed a winding hole is not reasonable, just as asking a local house for electric to weld your rudder wasn't. Now you are suggesting that it was it only to open general discussion smacks of a get out when you had replies that weren't favourable. If you have no doubt about doing it just get it done and dont make excuses. Good luck.

  3. You can do it and just think how you will feel when its done. Good luck.
  4. Given that the last thread the lady asked for a tow went on for 24 pages I'd say we have a treat in store!

  6. I love this and the colour! I also remember being with my Father and seeing the 'Jensen Interceptor' in a showroom in London, we pressed our noses to the plate glass windows for nearly half an hour, what a fantastic name for a car! Never forgotten it.
  7. Okay, now this has turned into great old car pictures, Ill add one of mine. My Father built this 'Fairthorpe' and using a Triumph Herald engine. The black and white image shows it in build and I remember 'helping' and the smell of glass fibre and glue takes me right back! The rather tatty picture shows the completed car, dated sometime in 1962.
  8. On a purely knee jerk reaction and with no experience whatsoever about such a boat I'd still say .... "how wonderfully exciting and go for it just for the hell and the thrill of it" but sensible people will advise 😀 Oh, they did already and Yes she is "gorgeous" Good luck and fair winds
  9. Yes, I supposed it might be, but at another risk of eliciting many sharp intakes of breath I wouldn't be too worried about how it looked! 😉
  10. Possible stupid question alert.... has anybody ever thought about fitting a Velux window in the roof of a narrowboat? I realise the curve would be tricky but I wonder if a frame could be made to accommodate one perhaps?
  11. So it has! I did not know that. 😀
  12. Safe journeys for you, and enjoy.
  13. Sadly, employment requirement means that my particular quarry is likely to get away scot-free.
  14. However they can be slippery, one only has a limited time to land it and the gowk in question might overstay, rendering the catch null and void.
