Anybody else noticed that Photobucket  have had a change of management and are now allowing up to 400 photo’s per account FREE and have released the block on previously uploaded photo’s, so all our old posts are now populated again. Have a look at your posts to make sure!.

Caraboat General / Helterskelter on the Ashby
« on: May 28, 2018, 03:00:04 PM »
Hi to you all, I was invited by Bev & Neil out to Market Bosworth, (famous for two major events 1485 Battle of Bosworth and me being born there!!) I was made extremely welcome and saw the inside of Helterskelter  for the first time, it’s so nice to see how others have restored and maintain their craft and how comfortable they have made them and Bev and Neil score 10 on all aspects, thanks again to you both.
Best wishes

Hi just raising awareness of the MOIRA CANAL FESTIVAL, will you be there ? would be great if we could turn out more boats than the WILDERNESS CLUB, probably unlikely as they are so well organised, if you are coming please PM me.

Caraboat General / RECYCLING
« on: April 07, 2018, 12:07:45 PM »
This is what recycling is all about, what I think is or was, a Catalina Flying boat, could be a bit tricky towing it due to weight and width, I bet you fancy it Phil ??

Caraboat General / IWA TRAIL BOAT RALLYS
« on: February 12, 2018, 02:55:57 PM »
Hi to you all, I have been contacted by Derek Smith who would like our help in finding sites for the rallys 2019 on

I am the IWA Trailboat Advisor and my main task is to seek out organisations who are restoring a waterway, have an isolated and navigable section with a slipway, and are willing and able to organise for one year only, one of our National Trailboat Festivals as excellent publicity for their restoration. I also advise them comprehensively on how to set about organising it. There is more detailed information in this flyer on the IWA website: - www.waterways.org.uk/information/organising_events/pdfs/festival_planning_basics

I am having great difficulty in finding suitable hosting organisations for our national Trailboat Festivals beyond 2019. I’m therefore sending out this appeal for members to have a think about who in your locality is working on a suitable restoration, and see if you can get them interested in hosting and organising one for the IWA, and for the benefit of the restoration, sometime in the not too distant future.

Caraboat General / THE DEMISE OF PHOTOBUCKET
« on: September 06, 2017, 09:22:47 PM »
What are we going to do about all our photo’s on Photobucket, a “Caraboat Gallery” or individual posts, I have photo’s going back years and it would be a mammoth task to edit every post.
So what do the rest of you think ?.

Caraboat General / Sarah and Photobucket
« on: August 29, 2017, 12:42:08 PM »
Hi Sarah, lovely to see you posting again, ”photobucket” have stopped providing 3rd party hosting for free and the price they are asking to provide the service is prohibitive Neil M found “flicker” to be good and I am also trying them at the moment.
