  1. Bad Fishermen

    I had similar on the nottingham Canal, fisherman said over the winter period it is just for fishing competitions , I made sure I stopped for 14 days , I did not see any competition while there. I have had fishermen on lock approach and mooring spots tell me I cannot pull in . They soon realise that my 30 ton+ boat will not be worried by nets or poles.
  2. Isuzu 55 Manual

    If you are near nottingham you can photocopy my manual.

  4. What chance have the hirers got!

    The whole boat did not leave the water , lol , the front end went through the fence and the boat tilted along the side . A Plastic cruiser does not stand much of a chance against a 60 foot metal boat.
  5. Solar controller Victron v Tracer

    On the tracers the bn series is a negative common grounding , the a series is a positive common grounding.
  6. What chance have the hirers got!

    I was hit at a junction , there was a 100 metre obstruction coming up to the junction , I was in a plastic cruiser and around 80 metres through the obstruction , a big narrow boat approached the other end and just carried on coming . He rammed in to me head on , pushing me off the Canal and through someone's garden fence breaking the panels and smashing the front of my boat , he did not even slow down or acknowledge I was there and carried on. I know he deserved a good smacking but could not stop. Next time I see him I will leave a firm implant of my boot in his face.

    Thanks for the replies , will add engine model number later when I get home.
  10. I am just about to do my first service on it , can anyone point me in the direction of a service manual. Thanks a lot. Alan.
  11. Six full traction batteries on Ebay

    Too far for me to travel or I would snap them up.
  12. Survey results were great , good solid readings and not a lot lost , still 10mm in places 9.9 /9.8 in others...sides 5.7/5.8.....so very happy with the results , plenty of years left in her for me... Thanks for the replies..alan
  13. winter moorings

    I thought there used to be three sets of winter moorings along the nottingham/beeston canal , it appears there is only beeston this year.
  14. Thanks for the replies , gives me a better understanding , I will be there when lifted and surveyed and use my own eyes as well. Its a one owner from new and all paperwork for regular maintenance / blackening is present , it was sat on a canal in middle of no where with no marina hook up , engine and solar for power.
  15. Cheers lads , yes a pretty impossible question with a lot of variables , never been in a marina on mains. I will hope for a good survey and keep my fingers crossed . If it is say 5 mm from a original 10 mm at ten years old would you consider it pretty worn for the age ?
