      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.

    Interesting things, like the taste of good ale, the smell of a beehive, the sound of a Rolls Royce Merlin, and the sight of a working pair of ploughing engines.
    Being slightly drunk, slightly stoned and gently warmed by a friendly sun.

  1. Yes that's pretty well what I meant. Think I will build a slow speed machine ready in case.
  2. May I ask what size the engine pulley is? The alternator is goosed but the story so far suggests it may have been running too slow.
  3. If you can post a picture of your alternator I can identify it and suggest a test procedure and advise on whether a repair would be economic. Seems like that offer is redundant!
  4. You forgot the emergency budget, instant crash and WWIII.
  5. Many boats have steel tanks. After I opened mine and cleaned it out I drank from it but was glad I hadn't when I saw the inside.
  6. And if those conditions aren't met? Should have gone to specsavers
  7. Exactly. A welcome increase in career opportunities for our young people directly resulting from brexit. Glad you agree.
  8. The only water I considered potable on my boat was bottled and I would simply not have enough on board to hand out to those who didn't bring enough. Would you be answerable for the quality of drinking water supplied by you?
  9. Interesting fact. An equilateral triangle pushed through the water flat face forward will have less drag than one moving point first.
  10. All politicians see Britain on a piece of paper. There is spending and taxation, GDP and borrowing. The game is to maximise some numbers and minimise others with their friends telling them which numbers to change. It's only when an election is called that they even notice the other 65 million of us exist.
  11. Wouldn't the whole thing have been short circuited if you had just pointed out that the dog can drink from the canal.
  12. I used to moor on the reverse side of the lock mooring at the jolly sailor. Used to be able to whip in for a pint and neck it whilst the lock equalises.
  13. I have noticed too a sudden proliferation of radio adverts seeking to enrol employers in apprenticeship schemes.
  14. Let's not forget that it's not so long ago we voted to keep that system. I think it's a poor system too but what can you do, there was a vote and there's an end to it.
  15. Four extra bank holidays, that's attractive. Perhaps we can solve the pollution problem by all riding to work on pink unicorns that shit rainbows. (available only to black lesbian single parents).
