  1. Such sad news, all I can do is send you all a hug and may Will now be at peace. Although you are remembered in sadness right now Will, may that sadness in time to come, be replaced with happy memories full of laughter and the memory of your life be a celebration and your family and friends will celebrate your life. blessed be and may your spirit shine Lorraine

  2. The way I see it, there are two possible scenarios here. 1) He was a genuine guy, with a genuinely horrible situation looking for help. He created an account with his someone else's facebook login (which was already logged in on the computer he borrowed), he left himself logged on to the forum until 3:15, though by that point he had left the computer, so did not actually see any of the replies. We aren't all computer literate, and if he had followed his nose this is a very plausible scenario. 2) He was a troll, he popped on here to try and cause trouble.... If 1) and he manages to

  4. You really can't read, can you? I wrote "read PAST the first sentence". I mentioned that it was only five words long to encourage you to continue. Now, have another shot at it. It really isn't so difficult. Honest. Nice one. Reminds me of the story about the famously taciturn President Coolidge. Little girl goes up to the president and says: "Mr President, my momma bet me five dollars I couldn't get more than two words out of you". Coolidge: "Momma wins".

  8. Looking to the future when seals may degrade/fail I would position the shower tray in such a way that you have easy access to the fittings underneath so that you can see if they are leaking and replace stuff if necessary. Down between the ribs might give you extra headroom and look neat but it's going to be a pig to work on in future years

  9. Shocking. If you can't trust a crook hawking knocked-off TVs out of the back of a van, whom can you trust? I only hope your daughter's boyfriend won't let this experience deter him from handling stolen goods in the future.

  11. Yes IIRC it appeared when the forum software was updated a year or so ago. It is useful to be able to have the two views, though I generally prefer the code view because you can see exactly what's going on, and it is the fix when you can't add text below quoted text without it appearing as part of the quote. If you mean very recently, <Guessing alert> its on or off status may be "remembered" by a cookie, so if you delete all cookies maybe it defaults to off?

  12. Our windows had been happily sitting there, minding their own business and not letting in any water, for over 20 years. Last summer three of them at different times started leaking slightly around the frame. In each case I checked the tightness of all the screws and found a couple that easily gave quarter of a turn, and each time it stopped the leak. It's still on my to-do list to check all the other windows.

  13. For an edge seal. Tape around the edge of the window frame, on the window frame, to about an eighth of an inch from the edge. Tape around the window on the cabin side, again, to about an eighth. Run a bead of rubberised sealant all the way around and smooth to a bevel. Pull the tape off immediately to leave a smart track around the window. The will do quite well, but a fuller fix would require the removal of the window, which should be sealed with butyl.

  14. just want to clarify a couple of things As far as I know, Ive never mentioned or expected 300 amps to go through a 7mm wire? it was the charging cables only 7mm rated at 50 amps, On 240v 30 amps max through 30 amp charger, when under way max 40 amps through alternator. I Have exaggerated, tongue in cheek, how I've used my Bow Thruster, I understand 10 second blasts, but used it when departing berth, clearing other moored boats,getting use to the steering over again correcting a approach to bridge. But on return to berth, I've noticed a change in tone, still working,

  15. I went back to uni to do an MA in my thirties, and often found myself asking 'daft' questions in seminars. Nine times out of ten other students were wondering the same thing but too self-conscious to ask. I've since been on the other side of the fence as a tutor on first-year undergraduate courses, and I see the same pattern: puzzled faces, finally a 'daft' question from a more confident student, and gratitude all round (not least from me) as the blockage is identified and (hopefully!) removed. Moral of the story being: never feel daft about asking anything. If anybody is obnoxious enough to t

  16. This is from memory. I think most ST pumps were centrifugal pumps rather than diaphragm or flexible impeller pumps. and are fine in any sort of water. The pump head itself has no wearing parts apart from a seal and possibly a bearing but I think its the motor bearing that supports the impeller. There are two problems. 1. The impeller may be capable of blocking with debris so it is worth taking the pump cover off and inspecting it. I think the impeller consists of two plates with the flutes between them. It the gap between the plates that block. A strainer on the inlet should prevent proble

  22. Believe me I'm there it's finally sunk it my head I'm there, wrong cable. I'm scared to ask this question but..... So when I get the cables, what would happen if I connected it to the 150 amp alternator direct Will not a split charger stop power being used/drained from domestic battery's, but only allow the alternator to direct its charge to the BT bank when needed Is this what a split charger does?? It must be frustrating for you folks trying to educate us non engineering people Another thank you Really wish I could buy you all beers Col

  23. I do not recomend any one doing it my way but you did ask none at all seriously i spoke to a couple of people on the towpath and bought a boat. I suggest the only thing i planned was getting the mooring, i was told by someone a space was available and i managed to covince BW to let me have it, this was before the auction process. I had never been on a narrow boat, didnt truly understand the size of the network, how to work a lock, lift bridge and the electric bridge at Wrenbury caused a bit of head scratching on the day i took control of he boat i stood on the back deck and rea

  24. We will be looking to have Bettie's Blessing on both sides of our WB - we could arrange to be in the Braunston / Warwick area around Crick time. As with Blackrose, ours would not be under cover.
