Please stop giving inaccurate advice.  Gifts are not exempt from customs duties or Value Added Tax, and postage rates from the USA are mouth-wateringly expensive.

You are wrong. Non EU gifts up to £36 non gifts £15

Import duty on £0 -£135 is nil
Married to american lady and stuff comes In all the time

Also just had a remote for MPPT solar £16 from Hong Kong no duty payable as duty due was less than a set duty limit.

In Topic: Teapots?

All very harmless and enjoyed by many. A bit like many years back when cars displayed their AA or RAC badge and other members would toot or flash their lights. I cannot say if an acknowledgment is given upon sighting a teapot as I fear if I did the teapot on our roof might be used on my head.

In Topic: from Harefield to Dunhampstead

Nothing raises it`s ugly head. But as always some would have a problem somewhere and dozens of others moor in the same place without incident.

Enjoy the trip.

Fair enough not want to make an issue but if we chuck all kinds of stuff in to General Boating why do we need forums with various sections? My guess is the headings are designed to direct members to the locations that have an interest at that time. If junk creeps in some good info could be overlooked or a genuine concern remaining unanswered.  

Which is why I like the `new content` button, oh and donuts/doughnuts. Wife is American, teaches English to U.S. university students and she thinks the UK spelling is correct.


edit, but not tires/tyres says we have it wrong
