Pelsall Junction BCN W&E. IWA Festival of Water

The semicurcular bricks from the junction bridge, and from other bridges hereabouts, had been stolen, and the patching was C&RT making the best of it for the Festival

Display-boats leaving.





To prevent water from the propellor-bilge overflowing into the boat, and maybe eventually sinking it, particularly when the boat is moored without crew aboard, it is a good idea to have a float-switch, wired to be connected to the battery at all times, and circumventing all master-off-switches: this will operate the bilgepump and empty the propellor-bilge automatically when water reaches the level set.L1352_20070828_0005s.jpg.f18274707ce9ac09ceae9d8b9e96ab42.jpg
