In Topic: Highly aggressive Canada goose

I was watching a farmer shoot them on his field with a shot gun the other day and was thinking that he can't be alowed to kill them so I googled it and anyone can kill them as they are classed as vermin.

Excuse my ignorance, what is it in mushrooms?

LSD I think.

Fatal error: Out of memory (allocated 8912896) (tried to allocate 30720 bytes) in /home/ggbqjfrf/public_html/forums/admin/sources/classes/class_public_permissions.php on line 464

For those whom are fortunate, and not seen any of the posts from the 'erbert, they/he/she go through the process of using different ISP's, new email addresses, and join as new members - just so they/he/she (my money's on a 'he') can post a foul-mouthed diatribe as boilertext.
I think we've had as many as four visits in an evening, though with members hitting the report button fairly sharpish, their/his/her presence is fairly short-lived.
They/he/she does this across an unkown number of forums.
I cannot begin to explain the raison-d'etre of them/him/her, other than they/he/her have/has too much time on their/his/her hand/s

It seems like a lot of effort to wind a few boating people up.

This other forum I use they have a section where new posters have to make 20 posts before they can use the main forums.

But I wouldn't like to see that here.

In Topic: Bilge washing

I agree with DH,
But have to admit, a total disregard for actions, and causing pollution by Oil or Fuel from a boat as a result is really annoying, unacceptable in my opinion.I would think even more of a problem on still water,like a Canal !. But as with so many other things,it comes down to attitude.
But I suppose it's a difficult thing to police !.
Most areas I've been to are 'supposed' to be under scrutiny of the MARPOL bods, but it comes down to a policeing issue again. 
Have you not got Bilge Pump Filters Fitted Leeco !.

No but I need one as my bilge pumps busted with all the junk in the bilge.

Oil and fuel from your engine should drip into an isolated part of the engine bay so the only real bilge water (eg from a dripping stern gland) is pumped overboard. I believe part of the BSS

I have one under my engine. My iPhone fell into it the other day.
