      Changes to our Site Chat   05/04/17

      Invision Power Services Inc, the developers of our forum & chat software will be retiring the existing Chat functionality of the site as of May this year. (You may read more about this here) As such, we are in the position of finding an alternative solution given we believe that our chat functionality still has a place on Canal World. We're currently trialing out new "Chatbox" software on the site which you may view both via the bottom of the main page or by clicking "Chatbox" at the top right of the page. We appreciate the design & functionality is different though we welcome your feedback.

  1. I used to sail with a skipper on the Solent lumpy stuff who kept a supply of babies terry towelling nappies on board for hanging on the guard wires when moored on the old piles in Yarmouth Harbour. Did a grand job of deterring potential "raftees"!
  2. If that's the same as "rafting" in tidal waters then, an excellent idea!
  3. Greetings all. Being a long standing member of the YBW Forums I can confirm that the news articles posted on that site leave a lot to be desired as to their accuracy and reporting. This has long been the case and the ofttimes subject of much derision/annoyance from the forum members. I sometimes wonder if any of the journalists have ever been near a boat.
