In Topic: Drive plate and stern gear with Vetus

You must surely have been aware of what must have been something big to cause that amount of damage being picked up on the prop.
It must have stopped the engine to do the d plate in I would have thought.
Glad you now have it sorted.

Who decides what gets blocked?

The mobile industry has appointed the BBFC (British Board of Film Classification) to determine what content should be rated 18.  This is comparable with existing standards for visual content in other media and is based on the BBFC’s Classification guidelines.

I was also blocked and was impressed by the fact they rang me back twice trying to sort it out. One of the engineers asked me to download Opera during some try this and that sessions, still blocked.


Other than the forum it blocked my access to one of those gambling sites-just remembered it was Bet fred. Also would not allow me into National Lottery but I googled pornography and it let me do what I fancied.


As bottle says it has not been a problem before for me either (20 years) so a glitch for a short time is not a big problem.

All the sheet that comes through the net we need these protections for the kids.


Thinking of the c ANAL post on here it did allow me into just canals, but perhaps a plural anal is not as bad as the singular.

In Topic: Composting loos.

Hi all. We have an airhead and someone has linked to the article my wife blogged about the Airhead. Save you looking.



My wife also did a follow up one year later blog on the Airhead.



Adam Porter of Canal Boat mag did an article in the mag with some photos supplied by us and other boaters. If you go to our blog and click on the magazine on the right you can read the article. http://boatlife.blogspot.co.uk/


What might be of interest is the comments by Peter Birch, Enviroment Manager at C.R.T. which suggests among other disposal methods use of the bagged waste bins.


Anyway we love our loo but we don`t expect others too be of the same thinking.

Happy boating everyone.

In Topic: Vetus equivalent fuel filter

Surely if a fire in engine bay had taken a sufficient hold to melt a plastic plug then it would be to late anyway.
If that same fire involved metal plug would the plastic melting ferocity just as easily melt the rubber fuel pipes.
