  2. conservatories on narrowboats!!!!!

    I know of a boat that has/had a gazebo type structure on the back over a cruiser type stern. This got damaged recently in an accident so maybe he would be interested in something like a coveratory on the back instead!.
  3. Sloe Gin time

    The other year we mixed Damsons and sloes to gether with Tesco's Value Gin to amke DamSloe Gin and this was very good!!!
  4. Premier Back Cabin Range

    We have a classic. WE start with wood and fire lighters or paper if the windi is up. Once going we get the smokeless coal on. I cook lots of home made soups, Stews, Curries, cottage pie, propper pie with pastry. You can do almost any thing you would cook on a normal stove you just have to get used to it taking longer than on gas or elcetric and if using the oven turn stuff around other wise one side cooks (burns) quicker than the other. Good luck!
  5. Severe weather warnings

    I agree did our's yesterday and it all felt like I was ticking the boxes so as they could show they had asked some of us our opinions. Not sure they will do much with it though when they have all the responses back!

  8. A boater friendly canal side house owner

    We tried to make use of the shallow depth here to try and get our rudder back into the skeg. One very cold spring Strads stripped down to his undies and slipped into the water to try re site the rudder. I was sure someone would come out and tell us to go away but no one did!
