  1. Fradley to Calcutt (the return), Aug/Sep 2017

    You should be passing Wrens-Nest soon at our mooring just past Bradley Green Bridge, give us a wave.
  2. What's the latest thinking on toilet tank treatments?

    I understand Elsan Blue is Formaldehyde based according to the Safety Data Sheet here Don't they use that to preserve medical specimens? I too agree that since Odorlos has been re-formulated it is not effective also it recommends twice the previous dosage.
  3. How to get Rid

    I don't like them either, I preferred 'New Posts'. You can use ABP (Adblock Plus) extension with a rule ||youtube.com/$domain=canalworld.net which will block ALL embedded videos across the forum, but I don't know how to be more selective.
  4. Reactions - What do you think?

    Me neither and ditto but, nothing in my spam folder and I don't think I'm opted out, in fact I can't find an option to do that.
  5. Is Colwich Lock 21 still closed?

    Apparently it has; Rick on coal boat Auriga posted on Farcebook yesterday:
  6. Wi Fi Aerial

    Hi Tim When we were in Heyford a few weeks ago, I managed to get O2 with my TPLink router and no external serial. Granted, there was no reception on EE. 😬 Give me a call if you want more details Chris
  7. Stove Identity

    My friends have now successfully obtained spares and send grateful ;-) thanks to the information!
  8. Stove Identity

    Thank you linnit, it certainly looks like a Champion Korgen Multi Fuel Stove. Just need to check the dimensions tomorrow. http://www.charliesdirect.co.uk/champion-korgen-wood-burner-multi-fuel-stove-6kw?gclid=CPz8opCioc8CFSsq0wod5XwF5g
  9. Stove Identity

    Hoping someone will recognise the manufacturer of this stove, it belongs to some friends who inherited it with their boat but have never known the maker so it makes obtaining spares a bit tricky. The side panels are quite distinctive so hope this will help. Thanks in advance for any help.
  10. Amp meter burn out

    I don't think anyone has answered this question from the OP, post #11. It's a mystery to me!
  11. Rodbaston Lock No 35 - Staffordshire and Worcestershire Canal

    Open again now as of 15:40 :-)
  12. Rodbaston Lock has had a gate 'lifted off' Team apparently on site awaiting delivery of A Frame to lift back onto pintle [?] Word on the Towpath Telegraph is that they hope to have it back in action late afternoon/early evening. C&RT are apparently now stopping any more boats coming past Gailey Lock. We're 5th in the queue down, hirers coming up are going to be late back to base. No stoppage notice from C&RT yet. UPDATE: A frame arrived but safety certificate out of date so back it goes, so waiting for another one.
  13. Starter motor pinion throw adjustment (and other issues)

    When you had the starter apart did you check the brushes were free to move in their holders and that brush springs were pressing them in nicely? One stuck brush or broken spring will make the motor draw excessive current. Hope this helps.
  14. Diesel boat south of Banbury?
