  1. Very well by that definition I concede that my remark pointed out by Gibbo was mocking in an indirect way so I was not speaking plainly in that instance. Speaking plainly then - of course I don't need an answer to my last question. It is obvious what the answer is. The point I am making is that Gibbo does belittle people, especially when they say something he does not agree with. For him to say this "But this entire thread, as I see it, is one perfect example of a huge pile of big boys ganging together and letting one person (OP) "have it" for daring to make a suggestion."

  4. I have been informed that Peter has died. Those of us involved with the restoration of the Basingstoke Canal remember his commitment to this canal and the fun he gave us. Sue

  5. Simple because he failed to apologise to me and others when he goes into his - 'Direct and to the point' mode.. Those that give it out on here should expect to receive it. (I include myself in that BTW) I'm happy to apologise when I'm wrong on here and have done on occasions - some are I'm afraid too big in the scorp to do so.

  6. All that "HD Ready" means is that if you give it an HD source it will display it. "Full HD" means that it will display that HD source in full HD (1920x1080 pixels), which an "HD Ready" set won't necessarily be capable of. Some TVs have Freeview HD tuners built in. If it doesn't shout the fact loudly then it doesn't. Tony

  8. Exactly why do you feel you can make snide remarks but when someone gives it you back you start crying?

  11. I appreciate the videos and the work Tone is doing to find and provide links to them, half the new threads are now single links to Pathe films. How about starting a British Pathe newsreel thread and putting each video as a separate posting? That way they could all be found without creating half a million separate threads Richard

  12. Haven't you discovered that discussing real boating issues doesn't work on this forum? The discussions on petty things are much more popular. Sue

  16. But you can't expect newer forum members to go trawling back that far to find 'em Shirley? Tone

  19. OP may not be the most popular member on here. With a bit of imagination stretching it's even possible that he's more unpopular than me. But this entire thread, as I see it, is one perfect example of a huge pile of big boys ganging together and letting one person (OP) "have it" for daring to make a suggestion. I do see thinly veiled threats. I also see moderators ignoring them. I don't think I've ever seen such an example of bullying since primary school. It's happened in the past on this forum, and on those occasions the thread has been locked and the perpetrators' posts removed.

  23. Clearly the choice of heating depends on the way the boat is to be used. For me I have chosen gas ALDE for the following reasons; The boat will be in a marina in the winter with 240v and the Alde will take the 240v to heat the water for the central heating rads I can run the heating on a timer so it comes on and goes off when I want When not hooked up, low power draw, silent, maint free (they claim), small & reliable. No more expensive to buy than the other options. I will not have a coal stove on the boat because I dont like the mess in tending and cleaning it and storing the bag

  25. Bear in mind, narrowboats tend to average around 30 K for a good one and then go up from there. You don['t have that much to spend so you have two options. You can buy an eighties second hand narrowboat cheap but experience tells me such boats come with some wear and tear. A surveyor would more often than not find varied degrees of pitting and recommend remedial work and such work isn't for the DIY enthusiast. Then you have the second option, to buy a shell and fit it out. I knew someone who bought a shell for 10 K and took things from there. Alternatively sometimes you see old boats that hav
