Yer but - nothing will happen if you do it, who's going to catch and prosecute you -  so -  just do as many do and just ignore the waterways laws.

 

 

Well if I saw someone doing it. I'd frown upon them....

 

 

Oh....!

Swiftly slice the stern line with ones sword cane before returning the blade to the walking stick and hobbling off down the towing path like an old codger. 

Grey beard needed. And a hat. 

I say! Your line seems to have parted. How wafully shocking.

A potato! You had it good. When I was kid we had to use bulbs stolen from council parks.

Little update on the work…

 

Glad I have started stripping out the bedroom as it’s apparent there was damp behind some layers of panels and insulation, it is more than a bit of condensation.

 

Really bad for your health with black spores and white mould everywhere. Previous couple had been sleeping right next to this!

 

Believe it’s coming from the thread from a tunnel light… Possibly from where a tv aerial was mounted too. Might make out the square recessed light in the pic.  
 

Also there was defo a bow thruster and also think a bilge pump behind there which has been disconnected and just left, have started to sort that out. 

 

Any damp or rotten wood has started to come out and I’m leaving it to dry out with a dehumidifier.
 

Will let it dry out as much as possible while tackling the source from outside. And should help find any new wet patches.

 

Anyone with any similar experience of damp and mould? 


Had few guys come look at it from the workshop. They all think it’s leaking as mentioned above, not from the hull.
 

As it was so buried it wouldn’t been picked up in a survey they say. And have given few pointers on the refit. 
 

Would like to (gingerly) hear your thoughts!

Will need to paint the saloon at some point but it’s further down the list.

 

Currently got glittery wallpaper up 🙊

Is anyone old enuff to remember the felt wallpaper in Indian restaurants?

Blimey. Flock wallpaper. Now theres a blast from the past.😄  Loved poking it as a kid.  Not seen any for yonks.

Had it in the lounge when I first married about 100 years ago.
