Victor Swift—tells a tale

Victor: Panic in the streets
Sunday, 26 March 2017 10:15

PANIC in the streets indeed—or perhaps that should be panic on the water—caused by narrowboatworld going completely off-line for days, and no way of getting in touch.

Victor: The simple answer
Sunday, 19 March 2017 09:36

SO ONCE again a drunk falls into the Avon at Bath and drowns, and once again comes the cry from the family to make it safe.

Victor: Even more dangerous
Sunday, 05 March 2017 08:21

ONE thing is for sure, no matter how Cart exaggerates its visitor numbers there are going to be far less of them in view of the urge to turn the towpaths into fast cycle tracks.

Victor: More exaggerated statistics
Sunday, 22 January 2017 09:26

THE urge to turn towpaths into cycle tracks as we all know is now well up on the agenda, with the latest being to widen the towpath through Edgbaston Tunnel on the Worcester & Birmingham Canal.

Victor: Oh no they weren’t

PART of the winter stoppage has been the repair of the Hatton Flight on the Grand Union Canal, with John Johnson, Construction Supervisor from the Canal & River Trust, telling us about it.

Victor: Bridgewater closed
Sunday, 08 January 2017 09:26

I HAVE always had the impression that Peel Holdings, that operate the Bridgewater Canal, have little concern for its customers—the boaters—and closing it for four months to erect a bridge is a prime example.

Victor: What a tragic waste

I HAVE to admit that even I was surprised at the number of people who had drowned in the Avon at Bath, not realising there had been 12 until I saw the actual list.

Victor: Visitors—the real number!
Sunday, 04 December 2016 08:11

ALTOGETHER 33 boaters responded to my request to count the number of visitors/visits passing their boat during a day to see if the total came up to the number of 684 as stated by Cart for every day of every mile of its waterways.

Victor: Most impressed
Sunday, 27 November 2016 07:20

Boater David Davis was most impressed with the way the National Trust looks after the Wey Navigation, telling that all the locks worked well, the channel had a good depth with nothing caught on his boat's stern gear.

Victor: It doesn't work
Sunday, 20 November 2016 07:43

THE current 'Wait until it Breaks' policy of Canal & River Trust is just not working—certainly not for its customers anyway.

Victor: More fake boat sales
Sunday, 13 November 2016 08:47

AFTER seeing Paul Lillie's complaint about the fake 'For Sale' advert for the narrowboat in Pillings Lock Marina, yet another boat owner has told him that his boat was illegally advertised for sale on the same site!

Victor: No stoppage notices
Sunday, 06 November 2016 07:51

DURING the past few weeks we have received no few complaints that Canal & River Trust are 'forgetting' to send out stoppage notices, though the waterways in question have been closed.
