  1. Surveyor Recommendation Please

    Iain Jones is my preference.
  2. Dry dock stop planks - advice requested

    The first thing we did was burn the old stop planks for ours and fabricate a new steel guilottine gate. Not cheap even done in house, but saves a hell of a lot of time, doesn't leak and keeps the dock far cleaner.
  3. Glascote top lock

    The collar on the top gate had snapped and the gate couldn't be opened. I reported it to CRT, told them exactly what it was and they were out within half an hour with all the right kit and spares, all sorted and open after an hour and a half: Great job.
  4. Who is the painter?

    Ron Hough.
  5. Tamworth engineering supplies...

    Good to see you and I'm pleased we could help.
  6. Tamworth engineering supplies...

    I have some M10, M8 and a few smaller ones.
  7. Historic Boats for sale online

    Have a look at Violet which is for sale at Alvecote Marina.
  8. Seeking a Bolinder 9hp engine

    Not in a boat, but we've had this running in the car park. http://youtu.be/QgABpCiGVQ4
  9. Jack Haddock

    I only had the pleasure of meeting Jack once at Walsall Local History Centre, a lovely chap very well regarded in the area who has left a wonderful legacy of photos appreciated by so many. Our local Blog has done a great piece about him: https://brownhillsbob.com/2016/03/30/jack-haddock-1927-2016-walsall-has-lost-a-true-son/ RIP Jack.
  10. Yarwoods steel quality

    They did a number of FMC boats in coppered steel, we owned Acacia which was one of these boats, whereas my current boat Lamprey is Iron.
  11. Thanks for posting Alan, it's interesting to compare Sickle with Theophilus, which we currently have in the shed, as we're replacing V bottom. Jason, we had Tycho on the dry dock recently and pulled Theophilus up the slip, neither required supports as the V bottoms are incredibly shallow.
  12. Recommended boat hull/steel

    I'll help him 😉 That's one thing that will never happen...
  13. Glascote locks stoppage

    The lock has just this minute re-opened.
  14. Glascote locks stoppage

    We've got the CRT chaps in Glascote Basin at the moment as they are using our site to keep their welfare unit and for parking. Yesterday the site foreman came to tell me that the top lock will be open on Friday, but there is a new stoppage now on the bottom lock that will start on 22nd Feb and run for two weeks. Sarah
