  1. 06/04/2021 16:29 Starting tomorrow, our contractors will be onsite between Bridge 200, Soot Hill and Bridge 201 on the Trent & Mersey Canal to undertake works that will help us to explore ways in which we can safely allow boat movement through the affected area without destabilising the embankment, slipped material within the canal or the above gas main. A further update will be provided by Tuesday 20 April. Update on 07/04/2021: Investigations are now complete between Bridge 38, Black Road Bridge and Bridge 39, Hollands Bridge on the Macclesfield Canal and

  3. I don't know, but it's a shame they let it go if it was.
  4. Indeed, that's not the best place to moor. If it's unattended there's a good chance that if grounding doesn't get it the kids will!
  5. A few years ago I seem to remember struggling to find both somewhere to tie up and also the correct route to the Elsan at Hillmorton. The couple on the boat outside the cafe were not too pleased when I stumbled onto their domain, but I suspect I wasn't the first to make that mistake.

Following PM Boris Johnson laying out a four-step plan for easing restrictions by midsummer, we can at last give you an update on Cropredy.

There are still a number of factors to consider of course. Firstly, the four steps are ent
  10. CRT's notice: How does the Government’s roadmap apply to boating? We believe that the Government’s roadmap applies to boating in England in the following ways – please note that this is subject to further confirmation. There is no change until Step 1 part 2, potentially from 29 March, when it is anticipated that the official stay at home order will end but people will be encouraged to stay local. Limited local boat movement may be possible but you should avoid travelling if your boat is not located close to where you live, and only those living aboard are permitted to make an ove
  11. The RCR engineers I have come across I certainly wouldn't describe as "muppets". Some may be better than others but I think a generalised comment like that is both unkind and unjustified.
  12. Disrespectful comment.
  13. Vessel tragically breaks in heavy seas and sinks. From the 12 crew, 6 are rescued, 3 bodies recovered and 3 missing. https://www.maritime-executive.com/article/video-coastal-freighter-breaks-up-at-anchor
