    May I offer an alternative? Self-insurance, in effect. why not set up a savings account and Save the amount (or more) you could pay into an insurance company. If you have a spare amount, seed the account with an initial sum would be even better. The reason of course that insurance companies offer lower premiums when the dog is young is that it is less likely you will need to claim. Hopefully, you will not need the money for while (or possibly ever) and build up a good sum over time. It does mean that you are the one bearing the risk if that is an issue either by affordability or peace of mind then such a method may not be the best way for you.

    Hi Stan I have to disagree 😀 I think there are a few of us on here who in reality dont know each other who hold quite passionate views on the subject, its not your fault that your view is wrong I have friends and rellies on both sides of the fence as we all have but not even a raised word. A very good friend of mine wanted passionately to remain but last week we all went out for a meal and it didnt matter a jot. I think politicians are showing their true colours but then non of us should be suprised there should we. I will be miffed when/if we remain good little subserviant members but in reality I will get over it quickly and I have no intention of punching your lights out It gets a little heated on here but its not the real world.

    Where have I? My proposition is consistent. Pound level rose, over topped the low bit, washed a big breach.

    Apart from all the above. Because of the usual bow up, stern down attitude of most boats the water maybe pooling at the back end of the tank, away from your drain tap, therefore the boat might need leveling or ideally lowering the bow and or raising the stern so the water can pool forward towards the tap, and perhaps heeling over to the side the tap is on. This can be done either when the boat is level in dry dock on the plinths or put extra weight on the bow end, like fill the water tank right up and put heavy weights in the front well, like 40 gal drums of water, or get half a dozen Hattie Jaques to stand in there, or what it takes until the boat levels up, mind water doesn't pour in through the wells scuppers if you have them. On seconds thoughts it might be easier, though dearer to just pump it out via the filler.

    Dodgy fuel purchased (unlikely, but it does happen) Leak in your fuel tank - from the canal Water getting in through the tank breather (happened to me some years ago) Somebody purloining your fuel and replacing it with water. I'd get a sample of the -whatever it is - from the bottom of the tank, so that you can see the extent of the problem

    Not possible, your rant has been edited, has unladylike language been removed? It's not allowed on here, you need to go elsewhere to hone those skills, you'll get plenty of practice in robust banter.

    I drive an Audi. It's worth about £500, has 220,000 miles on it and might not last until 29th March.

    Is this the same "Jaguar" as the one currently moored at Alvecote?

    Oh woe is me...... it's all my fault. I think I'll be wearing sackcloths and ashes tomorrow! It was a thread I created about 3 horses that I had been told this morning had been abandoned, they were without food, the owner was in prison, the RSPCA had been told but they were ignoring the horses. So I was in panic mode! Wondering how I could help. I asked here for advice, and the advice was quickly forthcoming and was brilliant! After taking a long-range picture of the horses, I could see they had been given hay. People here confirmed the horses didn't appear to be in distress. After everything had settled down, I was embarrassed, and the thread could have been misconstrued (probably rightly) that I was a nosy interfering busybody! So I asked if the thread could be removed, as it had served it's purpose. No one was naughty or anything like that. It was just me hiding my embarrassment. Sorry!
