Just been emailed the latest BW boaters newsletter. Within it there is a section on how to cope with the cold weather.
Like most BW are struggling to cope with keeping services going in the really cold and snowey weather.
I did rather like this section...
"BW shares the view of the Residential Boat Owners Association (RBOA) that live-aboard boating is not for the faint-hearted – a message that they consistently promote at waterway events and on their website. Resourceful boaters will take cold weather challenges in their stride. We’d urge others to seek home comforts in more conventional types of accommodation during harsh weather. We also strongly recommend a visit to the RBOA’s website, www.rboa.org.uk for helpful cold weather tips.
BW offices will be closed from 2pm on 24th December until 8.00 am on 4th January. If you need to report a fault during this period, please call Freephone Canals on 0800 47 999 47. The call handler will take your details and you can expect a call from the local duty supervisor within an hour. The duty supervisor will ask you for information to help him or her diagnose the problem before they contact the relevant contractor."
Honest I feel and most probably good advice. I have left the second section on as it contains contact numbers for problems over the Christmas period.
