  1. You'd be fine on a crt mooring with car parking space within a few yards...
  2. Pump out filler cap

    Thanks for that Andrew - saved me making a schoolboy error, cheers!
  3. Pump out filler cap

    Thanks Martin - yes, that's exactlywhat I'm missing, the flush cap. I'll check on the size tomorrow but hopefully this is 2" - I was getting resigned to buying a whole unit. im convinced that it was a theft rather than my mistake - i virtually stand on it when I'm putting the chimney on, so I'm sure I would have noticed it if it was loose. cheers ian
  4. Pump out filler cap

    It used to be a challenge but my aim is much better these days!
  5. Pump out filler cap

    That's brilliant - thanks both. Can't say how annoying it was when I saw it missing, I'd love to find out who did it.
  6. Pump out filler cap

    I've just noticed that someone has stolen my brass filler cap off the pump out outlet pipe; I can't find one that would fit (2" male) online and I'm hoping that the reason for the theft was not that they are difficult to get...any pointers where to try?
  7. Stove fitter on Lancaster Canal or local

    As I am the other boater tony mentioned thought I'd add an update if anyone else has had the same problem. I needed a new flue and 6" collar ( original was 4" and corroded) - I finally found someone to do it, all the way from Nantwich! Even allowing for travel expenses Paul wheeler still gave me a competitive price. Very happy with him and the quality of his work, he also serviced my engine and did some plumbing work - very happy to recommend him. Contact details paulat. piwnarrowboatservices co uk, he also has a website and Facebook page.
  8. Brayzel boats

    I've admired quite a few of his boats (and lusted after 2 in particular) over the last 10 years or so. Andrew has also done my last couple of safety certs and I've been impressed by his knowledge and common sense attitude. Ian
  9. Lancaster visitor mooring advice required

    Does anyone know how this would work with the self declaration?
  10. Slow boat, do I have a problem

    At the same revs do you go the same speed in reverse as forward?Ian
  11. Good boat electrical service in the north

    Second recommendation for john, I was very happy both with what he did and the price he charged!
  12. I think tewitfield may be the best place for you to visit! http://www.lancastercanalboatclub.org/events.php
  13. LPG engineer recommendation Lancaster canal

    Hi Thanks - but that s the same number I have; I'll try again tomorrow but I remember struggling to get him last time. Cheers Ian
  14. Hi Has anyone found a good lpg chap that works on the Lancaster? I've got some work I need doing and am struggling to find one locally. One I have used in the past seems to have changed his number (Nell cross) and the gas safe register states boat qualified when they aren`t - any recommendations? Ian
  15. Choosing a surveyor in the Manchester/Preston area

    Hi I used Andrew from Brayzell Narrowboats at Garstang; very happy with the examination and he pointed out a few improvements I could make outside of the BSS.
