  1. List of Woolwich built GUCC Boats

    It is fairly easy to correct the list. The early pairings can be brought together by looking at the gauging and registration numbers. I also had anecdotal evidence from an old boatman, sadly now deceased, whose father had Alton and Angel from new. George
  2. List of Woolwich built GUCC Boats

    Sadly this list repeats the mistakes in "The George and The Mary" with regard to the pairing of the first few "Town" boats. George
  3. Time limited moorings over the winter months

    Given that the vast majority of winter moorings are located at signed visitor moorings, how can ANY such site be a "recognised fishing site"? George
  4. Leave space for anglers!

    So you pay £200 per month AND have to move for anglers as well? George
  5. Brexit 2017

    One anecdote does not trump ONS stats which show that we have more EU workers in the UK now than we have ever had including minimum wage earners as well as NHS doctors. George
  6. Brexit 2017

    According to the ONS, EU workers in the UK have reached record levels, so I presume by "numbers" you are talking single digits. George
  7. Brexit 2017

    Of course the EU is going to give us a worse deal. If they didn't the stampede to the door would see Juncker, Tusk, Barnier et al, trampled underfoot. What is constantly forgotten by remainers is the rest of the world. Despite the protestations of remainers the UK WILL be able to make better deals around the world because we will not be held to ransom by the likes of Wallonia demanding last minute bribes before they will sign a deal. George
  8. Brexit 2017

    I thought the UK was so insignificant a player that leaving the EU will be an unmitigated disaster for us? George
  9. The true license evaders

    Which is precisely what I said in my second sentence. George
  10. The true license evaders

    There are certainly a lot more than 7 boats stored on the bank. CRT must have a specific reason to only put 7 on the list. Perhaps those 7 are known by CRT to consistently launch onto their waters without a licence? George
  11. Brexit 2017

    Isn't every MP guilty of that? Many Labour MPs have their eyes on that much more lucrative job, MEP. George
  12. Brexit 2017

    How far from the truth! George
  13. Marina Dog Ban

    I would suggest it is grit blasted to remove mill scale then primed. Most boatyards won't allow grit blasting on site so it gets left on the steel. George

    Wow! That opens a whole new can of worms. Rule of thumb. Any of the baseplate that is shiny......don't bother blacking it will be rubbed off. If the baseplate is rusty.......clean and black it, it will benefit from it. (Advice from a VERY well respected surveyor, now deceased) George
  15. Marina Dog Ban

    Some would say that would be a result for planet Earth! George
