  2. How to tackle the damp???? Any ideas??? Thanx

    We have a couple of the moisture traps on our 40ft narrowboat and although they do work I don't think that they will cure your problem. Heat and adequate ventilation needed I think.
  3. Defibrillators

    More and more people are being trained nowadays and they are simple to use. If you have not been shown just follow the instructions inside the box and listen to what the machine says.
  4. RIP Leon Bernicoff

    Highlights of this year are on channel 4 tonight at 9.00pm.
  5. Etiquette!

    As I am deaf I would obviously miss all the beautiful sounds that you all mention.
  6. Fill Yer Tanks and Top Up Yer Coal

    That sounds like a plan. Try my leaf blower on the roof after it has snowed.
  7. Canal charity launches new pontoon in Wigan

    The new pontoon has been positioned below the dry dock lock where the towpath walls are are very high. There is one water point there and I can only assume that CaRT intend to put waste disposal bins in the adjacent yard. If anyone does moor on the pontoon they will be blocking access to the water point and waste disposal site.
  8. Boat swap

    Have a look at the canaljunction website.
  9. Yank - Books on Canalside Plant Life

    Think about going down onto the Montgomery canal as well as there are canalside nature reserves on the route.

  13. Private Vs Broker

    Pick up a free copy of Towpath Talk at your nearest chandeliers.
  14. Brittany Cruising

    Have a look at the billybubbles website. Bill Davies spent a few years boating in France and you may pick up some tips.
