  3. All contracts of sale governed by English law need to have the transfer of title conditional on receipt of full payment. Common law transfers title on delivery and if you don't get paid you are stuffed. Don't ask how I know.
  4. Me too. Good job and good price.
  5. As discussed many times on here, running the engine to charge the batteries is difficult to fit in if away from the boat 8 am till 6 pm 5 days a week. A big solar installation and marina mooring in winter would work.
  6. Common sense would suggest that a quick visit to the boat is far less risky than going to Asda. But it might add £200 to your bill if PC Plod comes along at the wrong time.
  7. My boat is on the canal towpath side. I can walk past it as exercise but if I go on board can I be fined £200 ?? What are the marina's saying? Would the CRT guidance from the first lock down convince PC Plod? I must share a bottle with Lady G one day!
  8. Just seen this on the other side - "An acceptable reason to travel The government and other bodies now recognise the risk posed by restricting access to vessels, and state that checking on a boat’s safety is an acceptable reason to travel. Owners who fail to visit or maintain their boats during lockdown, may have future insurance claims rejected if they cannot evidence they attempted to ensure the boat’s safety (even if it means paying a third-party or arranging for a marina to do so)." No links given. Is it true? I can't find anything on CRT or Gov.com. I do
  9. Most canal bridges are semi circular so air draft will be less for a wide boat than a narrow boat.
  10. Burning hydrogen with air produces NOx though. That's why hydrogen cars will use a fuel cell rather than an engine.

  12. High pressure water jet worked for me. Took longer than expected and a wet suit is recommended!

  14. Are the fittings wade type? Older type fittings may need barrel olives.
  15. Trent and Mersey Shardlow lock to Aston lock. Received this afternoon.
