Perhaps if you had a medical condition or were seriously allergic to some drugs it might be reassuring that whilst unconscious you were not being wrongly treated albeit in good faith.

 

I would have something like a SOS talisman that is unambiguous as it would be attached to me, not a car.

 

 

 

 

Talisman is very good but in some circumstances that little bit of extra insurance might be handy for rescuers.

The problem I can see is that it is easily forgotten and may be left in there when someone else is driving the car.

 

How many people actually remove the "Child on Board" sign when they are not actually carrying children?

Maybe a photo within the document might help.

There are rules. Under the heading common sense and decency.
Never any need to look up rules, laws or acts of parliament for so many situations along the waterways. If more of us the rules I refer to half the posts on the forum would be very short. Mind you I do enjoy skimming through the posts of the towpath lawyers.

A curious anomoly in the rules is that while its against byelaws to run the engine/generator of a stationary boat after 8pm to before 8am, there are no rules on using chainsaws outside these hours.
 
10am is fine though.


In Topic: Vetus water lubricated Stern Gland

Just changed it using the rag around prop shaft tip.
Just a half cup of water came in. Ended up just a fast drip so no pressure and if you buy your own seals and swop them with the ones coming out you will save the £98 vetus rip off for a new unit. Silicone grease from plumbers at a fraction of the vetus price.
All this learnt from this forum, so just hoping to help someone else.
