  1. I'd really like to know what has been done to them, and when. I think I can remember FmK being dry docked some time ago Richard
  2. Have you got a lift pump on the side of the crankcase? Richard
  3. I thought you both got into it because you are both bonkers - in the nicest possible way Richard
  4. The career paths of most coal boat operators is surprising. For instance, you wouldn't expect working in the media to be a natural starting point (not you Martin) Richard
  5. Nope - it's made of new planks. I had a lengthy discussion with an aboriculturist about this recently, which concluded planks don't grow on trees Anyway, you'd have to average the age across the plank. The tree didn't spring fully formed from the ground 200 years ago, it grew Richard
  6. Apparently, despite appearances they are in good order The duckweed is coming on nicely, as are the trees at the stern of FmK Richard
  7. Or revenue earning with historic - that doesn't work either Richard
  8. There's an unconverted wooden boat for sale at Bascote Wharf on the northern GU Sue wouldn't let me write the mobile number down Richard
  9. A whole new way of justifying her historic status! Year tonnes Richard
  10. Built for the BNRR - or M6 Toll as it is now known,+Sutton+Coldfield/@52.5409068,-1.7299921,199m/data=!3m1!1e3!4m5!3m4!1s0x4870afcc406580ab:0xe5abc911ace40913!8m2!3d52.5327521!4d-1.736794 We boated around the new lock while it was being built Richard
  11. Could I fit a JP3 into that? Richard
  12. Not needed to, Tony. Our alternator keeps up with our demands. I do find it hard to work out the correct length though, there doesn't seem to be a lot of adjustment to take up wear Richard
  13. I was almost right, 2014: Willow is 72' Richard
  14. Yes, that will be fine. Willow has been that way recently, she is longer than that Richard
