A Canada McGoose Burger, would that be tasty d'you think?
(not sure if this is getting the thread back on topic or not....)

I was once told the method for cooking Canada Goose.

1. Bring 2 pans of water to boiling point.
2. Put the goose in one and a brick in the other.
3. When the brick is tender the goose needs another hour.

Could it be a TCO boat? I'm pretty sure TAY has its plates in those positions nowadays.


I'm reluctant to join in with the real experts on these threads for fear of saying something so stupid. So if there is some feature on the boat that makes it obviously not a Tar boat, go easy on me (and educate please!).

Have you identified the tug in the second picture? If not, could it be wooden tug that has just changed hands via ebay to a forum member a few months ago?


I could be wrong but I seem to recall someone saying that the TCO boats didn't have a back end rail but rather a ring on either side.  Googling an image of Tay shows these and not BCN plates.


Edited to add:


Ok this is Towy but you get the idea

It's a 02 plate Astra, the key will not need re-programming.  Just change the battery and see what happens.


The car's handbook will probably tell you all you need to know about it anyway.
