  1. To be lifted out of the water you could enquire at Hesford Marine or Lymm Marina on the Bridgewater Canal. Approximately 4 hours cruising from Manchester.
  2. There was someone based at Nantwich Marina when we went past a few months ago.
  3. Did I not read somewhere that it is now CaRT official policy to leave the cycle barriers open. The majority of the cycle barriers on the Leeds and Liverpool in the Wigan area are left open.
  4. Cotton Arms, Wrenbury
  5. The flight can only be entered from either end between 8.00am and 9.00 am daily.
  6. Our Liverpool boat has bilge pump below the stern gland. It has an automatic setting which seems to activate when water is a few inches deep and a manual setting which we use at the end of a days sailing.
  7. Passage through Wigan has been restricted to twice daily ufn. The locks will be padlocked at all other times due to water shortages.
  8. That's the one. All the info is there for Dean.
  9. Dean Contact the Bridgewater Canal Company for an up to date booklet of conditions. In my copy (2008) it says that a Certificate of Seaworthiness or BSC or Declaration of Conformity is mandatory so you should be ok.
  10. I thought that I had heard this tale before and then I realised that we spoke to you as you were in front of us at Preston Brook tunnel on your way back to base on Queenie. By the sound of things your experiences do not seem to have put you off hiring again.
  11. Welcome to the forum. It would help if you let us know where abouts you are as there are places that do repairs all over the country.
  12. Bridge works are in progress.
  13. They did say that they would try to reopen the canal in time for the Federation of Bridgewater Cruising Clubs rally which is this weekend at Worsley Cruising Club.
  14. There is ample room now in the new basin in Llangollen. As ditchcrawler says there is a charge which I think is £6 per night but you can only stay for 2 nights. The charge includes electric and water on the pontoons.
  15. All the info should be on the CaRT website.
