  1. I always carry a pack of babys nappies for water that I can't get to or get out of certain spaces, Just open one up, put it in and leave it for a day or so, it always works for me.
  2. nope
  3. I didn't know that they owned any buildings in the middle of Skipton. Dave
  4. Don't know anything about the eberspacher but we had the webasto fit last year and lived on the boat for 3 months in the winter and found it to be an excellent piece of kit. (we have 4 rads) Dave
  5. There's also the café/snack bar at the top of Greenberfield locks and Abbots Harbour café at East Marton but that's a hell of a walk from Foulridge
  6. I'd be tempted to do all Wigan locks in one go, hard work but after the problems last week when 5 pounds were emptied overnight it would be better to get to the top and relax there, there's loads of decent places to moor between Wigan and Blackburn, just avoid staying overnight in Blackburn and then again between Blackburn and Burnley, loads of countryside, Enjoy !
  7. I see the idiots at Wigan are at it again, it looks like the locks have been closed all day and won't be open until tomorrow morning https://canalrivertrust.org.uk/notice/9312/wigan-flight-top-lock-to-lock-78-rosebridge
  8. We were going down along with another boat and were in the bottom lock when our boat (which was not actually touching the side) began to tilt badly, My other half who was steering screamed and climbed onto the other boat, we quickly sorted the lock out by shutting the bottom paddles and letting some water in from the lock above to level our boat, we then slowly emptied the lock again with no problem. After we left the lock we looked at all possible reasons why it happened but although there were several boaters around we couldn't work out why it had happened. We have since been back through the lock on a few occasions with no problems
  9. We also had a major problem there a couple of years ago going down, we reported it to CRT but obviously its still happening
  10. We used to have a sea cock on our old Springer I only ever turned it off in winter or when the filter blocked and I had to clear it.
  11. I've just found this boat for sale on ebay, I'm sorry but I just don't like it (or the price) what does anyone else think ? http://www.ebay.co.uk/itm/45-ft-Luxury-Canal-Narrow-Boat-Designed-as-Dutch-Barge-New-Build-2015-House-Boat-/121657335886?pt=LH_DefaultDomain_3&hash=item1c5357a04e
  12. Guess who our boat is named after ?
  13. Dean's going to love this
  14. I've just had the same problem, the valve was stuck, after a bit of messing about I've managed release the valve and get some air in and finally get a reading
  15. Our draft is 2ft 6in and at times I wish it was a bit less but we seem to get around okay most of the time
