Windlass for Mon and Brecon Canal


Featured Posts

Can anyone tell me if there is one general windlass for canal locks?

We will be only cruising on the Mon and Brecon Canal for now and are not sure what we will need for our adventures. From what I can tell there is a yale type key for using showers etc but also we will need a windlas for locks / liftbridges etc.

Any info / tips appreciated.

Didn't CaRT give you a 'Watermate' Yale key when you first licenced your boat?

You have to buy the Watermate keys. 

 

See CRT's licensing FAQ's.

When I bought my new boat in 2008 they sent me a Watermate key along with the number plates at no charge.  This was pre CaRT so maybe it all changed when they took over from BW.
