    Never keep hot ash under your cratch, it will give of CO which could well drift through the vents into the accommodation

    Years ago in the 1950', 60's and 70's vertually everyone with diesel vehicles used easystart on cold winters mornings, the air reeked of it especially Barkingside Ilford where most of the Black cabs lived with the 2.2 engines which thrived on it. It was easier than lighting bonfires under the engine and wafting lighted newspaper torches over the air intake. In my 50 years in the motor trade I honestly can't remember an engine being damaged by it, although their life may have been shortened a bit. I remember a truck with a Perkins P6 in it that started up backwards on easystart, quite frightening as the governor didn't work in that direction, Engine screaming. Exhaust poured out of the air intake and air sucked in through the exhaust pipe. Forward gears became reverse and reverse became forward. The driver managed to stall it up against a wall which burnt the clutch out, but the engine was still a goodun.

    Don't chuck it in the cut. The bottom is too near the top already in many places.

    I've had problems with Apple's connectivity (or lack of it). I often just finish up emailing myself with the file attached and picking up the email on the other device.

    I drenched a bonfire with petrol once. I had the sense to stand well back and attempt to light it with a rag on the end of a 20ft pole. There was a loud WHOOMPH and a bright light. The entire bonfire lifted about 2ft into the air then dropped back down. And went out.

    Well it raises an interesting point. £5 a day is £1,825 a year which is quite a bargain for a permanent mooring these days for a 70ft boat. Would CRT be within their rights to start sending the 'continue with your journey' emails they use as the first step in hassling CMers, if the moorings are being paid for?

    I'd say the same happens in the property market. I can immediately think of at least one example to illustrate, a flat in Scotland where the asking price is more than it is worth (as proved by the market.)

    Also when topping up the stove with fuel open the door very very slowly, open it quickly and the vacuum, suction will draw out smoke and dust.

    I find the safest level is close to the ground so that I do not hurt myself when I fall 😶

    Boating is probably more dangerous than drinking - I have fallen in three times without the benefit of any alcohol.
