  1. According to the locals these issues have all been reported to CRT many times. The sunken boat was apparently recovered but some of it got pushed back in. The gate at Stenson has CRT ribbon on.
  2. Difficult locks made more so due to multiple issues. Weston takes 25 minutes to fill due to leaking bottom gates. Even then you have to push the top gates open with the boat. Swarkestone - you just see the postcard size warning about the sunken boat after you have run aground on it. Oh and the towpath side ground paddle doesn’t work and this lock takes 30 minutes to fill due to leaking bottom gates. And Stenson - the bottom offside gate doesn’t open. Anyway CRT have painted the water points so that’s a start. Allow extra time for your journey!

    OK will keep them for now. We might anyway have to convert back to imperial to get a trade deal with USA. I worked for a US company and I remember getting shipping documents for some 600m wide crawler track pads!

    Yes I have to think about it a lot ! and much happier with the metric system. I can barely use imperial tools without a calculator to convert to metric. I learned the metric system at school ~60 years ago so I think it is time to send my dad's old stuff to the tip.
  6. There are usually a few moorings available between Shardlow lock and Willowbrook moorings - walking distance to the pubs on the main road. Next winding hole is a long way however if you are just out for the day from Sawley marina.
  7. No vacancies at Sawley on the C&RT website.

  10. I remember doing the calculations when fitting out. Same Parmax and Whalegulper. Plenty of water coming out of my shower. Something is wrong with the plumbing.
  11. Whale Gulper 220 = 14 l/min Parmax 2.9 = 11 l/min. Two = 22 l/min Did you measure the actual flow at the shower head ? Or have I got the wrong Whale Gulper? Not sure how the Whale Gulper will have 3 x current flow.
  12. Has to be parallel to increase flow. Output in series will be the same as one pump and might damage the second one. Check the shower drain pump can handle the extra flow rate !
