  1. Approaching Wigan

    ... and then walk a few hundred yards to Wigan Central! We always consider it our treat for doing Wigan flight
  2. Boat price register comparing advertised/realized prices

    Discounts - No. of licences applied to. Prompt Payment 22,861 Historic 266 Disconnected Waterway 401 Electric 88 Avon 11 Witham Sailing Club 9 Historic Unpowered Butty 51 Portable Powered Boat 88 Table 4. Number of licences to which different discounts applied. Taken from the stage 2 report on the licensing consultation, and I suspect that most owners of ex-working boats would be aware of the discount available.
  3. leeds to bingley safe moorings

    Having just spent a fortnight in Shipley we would recommend mooring just before bridge 209, just outside Saltaire Brewery who have an excellent brewery tap and shop. We were intending to leave yesterday but they had a beer festival last night! Also a strong recommendation for The Hop in Saltaire in the old tram shed.
  4. Newbie...Trojan t105

    I'll give you £40 for it if you don't want it.
  5. I assume that it is all about the home mooring status. Boats without a home mooring seem to be the focus of CRT, and these are already treated differently in the 1995 Act. I expect that they will charge more for CC-declared boat licences, possibly by upping all the prices and then giving a discount (25%?) for boats with a validated home mooring. Note that does not prevent them moving to area (LOA x Beam) based charging too!
  6. Manchester - what a mess!

    You don't need to ring them up, most of them offer a "stop me and buy one" policy ...
  7. Underfloor Storage

    That's why we fitted two!
  8. Crashing again

    Yes, but only to the next bollard.
  9. Crashing again

    ... And there are plenty of old boilers near Wigan so you would be in your element!

    I approve of your plan to ban disposable nappies, but you need to be the one to tell all the parents.
  11. Bow Thruster Batteries!

    I have a 5 ft 6 bowthruster, who can also be a stern thruster or an either side thruster. She can also steer or work locks.
  12. 13 year old non swimmer drowns

    There are a lot of bald, auld bikers though!
  13. 13 year old non swimmer drowns

    No, but there aren't many roads that make a noise for ages before a vehicle comes along either.
  14. Anybody had their boat spray painted

    We bumped into your painter while buying paint for our boat the other day. We got chatting and he showed us a picture of his work, which was a shot of Bullfinch. It's probably a sign he is happy with the job he did if he is showing it to demonstrate his work. He did give me a funny look though when I said "How is Peter?"
