  1. More about marina livin'

    It was the 1st question I was asked by larryjc
  2. Hit and run

    The owner of the plastic boat had been in Braunston earlier last week and caused problems in the Plough. He has been interviewed by the police.
  3. March of the Wide Beams

    He does. He used to live in Stockton.
  4. March of the Wide Beams

    Yes a 62 x 12 _- think they are headingvtowards Stockton to fit it out.
  5. March of the Wide Beams

    I had to go to Onley Marina, known as Dunchurch Pools this afternoon. There are now 10 widebeams moored there. Clearly CRT dont care nor do Daventry District Council as they gave planning permission for the Marina but not for residential use. I understand at least 6 of these boats will not move out of the Marina as they are occupied by liveaboard 'boaters'. Maybe its time for narrowboat owners to congregate on a regular basis at Braunston Turn and the sanitary station/water point to stop these larger boats reaching Dunchurch Pools Marina!!
  6. Canal Boat Magazine

    Nick Wall- Top Man, good magazine.
  7. Bow Thruster. (Girlie button)

    I'm the service manager at Braunston and I can assure you all, and the includes Sue the buyer, that the bowthruster does work. You just need to know how to turn it on at the panel. I will prove to Sue that it works and show her how. Hopefully you will all stop knocking Tim and Braunston Marina. Tim gives huge amounts of money to canal based charities and this is clearly not appreciated by some.
  8. Missing Lock Windlass

    Taryn is a VLK at Hillmorton with her husband Kevin. Both lovely, friendly and helpful people. Please help her find her windlass.
  9. Boat finance/marine mortgage

    Arkle finance and Zebra finance lend on narrowboats. Details on google
  10. Deal of the day!

    looks like a boat that's on the agenda 21 moorings in Oxford
  11. I've Just Received an Invitation To Vote !!

    what time are the results being announced ?
  12. Dog thieves alert!!

    Passed them at the top of Braunston flight - claimed to have run out of petrol and strolled off - came back within 5 minutes with a can and filled the front boat. When we went through the tunnel it stank of petrol - they may have a leak !! - get the matches ready.
  13. Mink on the Macc

    We have Mink in Braunston Marina - we had one make its way into our front locker via the drain hole - made a terrible mess and the smell was pretty foul as well. Gone from the boat now as I fitted a grill over the drain holes but they have been seen swimming in the water near the turning point in the road.
  14. Virtual Foxton Locks?

    Chop We started quite early so as to avoid to many Gongoozlers - Foxton was almost deserted at 9am on Bank Holiday Sunday. I didn't have any problems with my walking until I put the 20 kilo pack on my back !!!! Graham
