    Just not true im afraid, all previous advice is likely to end in catastrophy.. There are strong rituals about changing the name of your boat, and if you have been observing that the moon has been getting bigger, then this is a portent that the god of man made craft is aware of your plans and sending you a message. firstly the boat must be lifted from the canal in alignment with the major trade routes you intend to travel. So align with the a5 if you are on the grand union, the a14 if on the nene, etc. the dock must align. If lifting get the boat dropped on the flow line. secondly the ritualistic check to the goddess of the split pin must be carried out. balms and potions should be massaged into the exposed panels. Those of some persuasions light ritual bonfires of horse excrement and pitch, to smear over themselves and the goddess of the cut, but the cult of toopack has mostly ended that. finaly remember to drop the boat back in with the words i rename this boat ‘ and ‘ break a bottle of fullers esb on the stern ( and remember to tie a line on somewhere) you may think i am taking the proverbial, im not, when a certain ship was launched in liverpool , they planned to name it enterprise . However the docker swinging the hammer on the final baulk was thinking about what his wife had said last night about him being a bit premature. He swung the hammer just as the mayor of liverpool reading from the script ‘we pray this enterprise is a titanic commercial success i name this ship ......... as a result the ship hit the water early on a word begining with t. ( a name never to be quoth at a launch) and had to be renamed . This is because the last word spoken as a boat enters the water is its name. the rest is history. be very careful. if it is a dark side wide boat being placed on a silken thread of narrowness that is especially unlucky, you will be cursed and the god of wanton depreciation and high cost will haunt you forever.

    I can't believe we've come to a point where Bizzard is quoting another post... and the one which makes the most sense is Bizzard's!

    Sorry Rusty. Sadly you took the bait on this one. I often wonder why, Pirates in particular, lose their hands and feet. They all seemed to do it. A bit careless if you ask me. If your oppo has suffered losing a limb, you'd be extra careful surely. And finally, "where's your buccaneers!?"

    I changed my boat's name while it was in the water and twenty years later the gearbox broke. Be very careful.

    Oh yes! For some reason I hadn't associated that with bad luck - talk about not being introspective! Anyway, I'm due to pick it up at the beginning of March so I'll post all about it. I don't care if it's boring, it cost an arm and a leg so you can all suffer!

    Hmmm, commiserate with more like! Not sure why someone with only 59 posts to their name would want to do it, masochism perhaps? Anyway I’m sure he (or she, or they) will be great. If they survive!

    Yes Ive inadvertantly clicked onto some facebook items before but the stupid pop up asking to log on or join overwhelms the page all too often. Facebook is at last being seen for what it is and hopefuly their abuse of peoples privacy and disrespect of various laws is coming to the forefront. Such platforms make life very easy for criminals in many ways which is a shame as if it were set up and used properly it would have been beneficial to many.

    Look ive only just got up , im building a house on the wrong side of the planet which is alien to me. All the measurements keep getting screwed up, and the cement mixer goes the wrong way round. I havent had my medication. In the middle of this someone needs to avoid a titanic catastrophy over boat renaming and you expect instant accuracy and recall. no wonder boats keep getting named ferfucsake and mindyourhead by mistake. take advice. Belfast or liverpool who cares why let truth get in the way, we are lead by our peers and they have an upside down map, and keep climbing off the bus.

    Inspecting the hatch at the rear of my boat there is a pool of water about 5mm deep. A couple of months ago my calorifier decided to dump all 55l of water into boay which I thought I'd all mopped up. Could this pool of water be coming from back then? The other inspection hatches middle and front show damp on the floor but only damp no water. Which I'm assuming can be put down to condensation? There are no pipes leaking as far as I can tell but this pool of water reappears every week or so since clarifier leak. This boat larks a real learning curve ?

    Without people like this would canals be as they are today saving boats, building new ones and looking after them Allen's yard was a fascinating place http://allensregister.com/allens4.php#Les Allen We could all be in GRP Tubs

    Hiya. Glad it's not all bad news. We never give our dogs any human food generally. Just the way we are. However in the past, our other dogs have been given all sorts of stuff. Left overs, chocolate, bowls of milk, bowls of tea etc. I have been around GSDs since childhood and they are a hardy bunch. Hope the diet sorts it. We came down Atherstone Locks yesterday and chatted with two dog walkers, at different times, different dogs. Both were making there way to Riversmeet Vets. Glamorous building they operate in. Nice to chat yesterday, regardless of Mr stinkypoos trying to put you off.

    He’s out by rather a large factor. The coefficient of expansion for Steel is around 12x10-6 per degree C. So a difference of temperature of 20C (unlikely I would have thought) gives 240x10-6, or 0.000240. Over 60ft that gives a difference in length of 0.0144ft, or 0.17”.

    Sounds similar to the solution I came up with after much head scratching and experimentation, when I first encountered the infamous Shroppie Shelf. I put a goat chain inside the bottom of each kart tyre, which sank them enough to drop below the shelf. Jen

    Cat litter can be messy to then clear up - I use nappies (cheapest from lidl or aldi) - great for soaking up quite large puddles from the bilge etc

    Our first goldfish were Gog and Magog Magog is often associated with apocalyptic traditions, Gog of the land of Magog, the chief prince of Meshech and Tubal" (Ezek 38:2 NIV); on the basis of this mention, "Gog and Magog" over time became associated with each other as a pair. In the New Testament, this pairing is found in the Book of Revelation 20:8, in which instance they may merely be metaphors.
