Lots of folk write and ask me for advice, instructions and general information. I decided that I would put a place on the internet that allows them to visit and see what mischief I am (or have been) up to. Hopefully it will be appreciated - please feel free to press Ctrl + End and go to the bottom of this page and give me some feedback. If you think that it is worth it, please tell your friends, if not, please tell me - thank you.

It is my intention to add something here every 7 to 10 days - the most recent stuff will always be at the top of the page to save you time. My policy and techniques for removing stuff from the bottom - there will only ever be two weeks information shown in this page. At the bottom there will be a link to an index of earlier pages. This way, it will stop the page from becoming too long and unwieldy !

General
Went for one full plus two part days on the Chesterfield Canal. It was a good time. Weather was OK. Before anyone tells you that "I caught the sun", let me tell you that I did not, it was "the sun that caught me" Sailed from West Stockwith Basin at the junction with the river Trent - reached and winded (turned the boat around) at Retford.

Hired the boat from Tony at the Chesterfield Canal Boat Company - 01522 514 774. A nice helpful man. The NB Robin Hood is a well fitted pleasant boat. All in all very highly recommended.

The Chesterfield Canal is a very pleasant easy cut. Lots of reeds and weeds - very shallow - bit difficult to get close to the side to moor. Was in the weed hatch clearing the prop so many times, I lost count - much much more than any other cut that I have ever used.

The pub, the Boat Inn at Hayton was a pleasant place, inexpensive, slow service and 'orrible food.


Sorry but that is about all that I can find to tell you this week. Bit of a dead week for me !!
