And then of course C&RTs subsidiary BWML have the Spurn Light Ship in their marina at Hull.


Open as a museum.

That did make me chuckle...


I abide by the laws that they set, i am not interested in the legality of those laws, they do not cause me any discomfort so i am happy, so i doubt very much they will turn up and steal my boat.


What a selfish attitude - "I don't care what they do if it doesn't affect me".


So, how far will you go in accepting 'illegal rules' ?


What happens when some new rule starts to 'cause you discomfort' ?


Maybe the day of the introduction of £10 per night for mooring 'anywhere' and £20 per night on VMs ?

In Topic: Vacuum Clothing Storage Bags from Argos

Yesterday, 07:22 AM

Bought 4 packs from Poundland (surprisingly £1 per pack of two).

One leaked and wouldn't stay 'flat' all the others are perfect.


Can be 'sucked out' (until they go rigid) with our little 800w 'boat hoover'  - nothing special needed.

The size of the regulator could also be a contributory 'restriction' if undersized.


Ensure your regulator Kg/Hour is sufficient to meet the demand of off your appliances, on full / high, all at the same time.

In Topic: It's the Pits

So, out of interest as I'm now boatless, how is it possible to 100% be sure the hull is protected from outside influences that we have no control over?
(Sorry to hear Denmark's sibling is suffering with pitting)


You have no control over anything that you have no control over.
