  1. When you've got one try these :-
  2. Isn't this the APRIL edition of narrowboat world?
  3. I hope they clear out the rubbish before refilling the canal, and before anyone says of course they will, the answer is no if its not in the contract of the contractor doing the work.
  4. £27 and some pence at Coventry
  5. Or if you are a techy perhaps a helmet cam and monitor.
  6. If you have facebook look up Heidi Manning she runs a trade boat selling nick nacks talk to her I'm sure she can put your mind at rest. Personally I can't see any reason why it should make any difference male or female as far as operating the boat is concerned.
  7. In the days when I hired narrowboats I asked the hire company if they had a problem with single handed hire and the answer was no problem, of course if you went on a one day helmsman course you would meet like minded people also embarking on this adventure. I chose fox narrowboats at March which shouldn't be too far from you.
  8. If anyone is in the Dudley area and in need of a top up it might be worth a side trip down to Halesowen I got diesel for 47p/Ltr you chose your split declaration.
  9. I agree Richard looks like an ice breaker.
  10. Is there an external vent? is it blocked?
  11. Have I landed in an alternative universe what are these people talking about I think Bizzard has finally lost the plot
  12. I prefer crushed between the boat and the lock landing, which is where they inevitably are :-)
  13. I get 1.7 ltrs perhour out of mine including diesel heating and some time charging batteries.
  14. Mine wasn't that expensive.
  15. This is the one I have :- very convenient.
