  1. I'm surprised we are allowed to use the term in these days of PC twaddle and removing statues for the mob rule opinionista's
  2. I received the same email today - not been south of Whilton Marina since we bought GLAD in 2017 .... I have asked them to explain why they think we have been in London recently.
  3. We used Michael for our survey - the boat was at Whilton and the BSS related issues Michael highlighted were fixed before we completed purchase and collected the boat.
  4. In 2009 we paid 46,000 for a new East West from Whilton, they still achieve 42,000 to 46,000
  5. Have to say, never did Harecastle but did not have any issues in other tunnels or bridge holes with our east west.
  6. I owned one for three years and never had issue with it. It was our first boat and we were very happy with the fit out. The paint was not the best, that was the one thing that seems to let them down although most have probably had some paint work done on them by now. Never had an issue with the internal wood work, the bamboo was bullet proof and very hard wearing. Importantly, they still achieve near to their original price upon resale so all the naysayers out there were wrong with their initial negative comments on value and expected future value.
  7. You could install Firefox or Opera as alternative browsers - they may work and allow you to access most websites whilst you decide what to do next ...
  8. If you decide to poke some grease in, could you not use a mega large jubilee clip or similar to keep the hole covered until you get the chance to repair properly in dry dock - just thinking about keeping the hole clean and stopping any unwanted grit or dirt.
  9. The basic setup interests me for my pool out here in France - using a small PV panel to run the pump to circulate from the pool > round the hot water solar > back to the pool. If it gives me a few degrees extra then its worth having a go !
  10. Drain back systems solve the issue (but are not as simple) >> https://solar-water-panel.com/blogs/news/whats-a-drain-back-system
  11. What an ignorant man .... very lucky he didn't end up in the water.
  12. Undoubtably there will be KPMG or similar in there lining their 'consulting' profits whilst stating the bleeding obvious 😉
  13. Glad to hear it although there were reports of 75M being spent getting 300,000 home .... https://www.theguardian.com/world/2020/mar/31/how-will-uk-75m-coronavirus-repatriation-rescue-mission-work
  14. Personally I think all these foolish people should be asked to contribute to the huge costs of the repatriation. As mentioned above, they all seemed to ignore the obvious and carry on holidaying instead of attempting to get home ASAP.
  15. Sorry Mike, I do think about it a lot of the time but I was trying to be positive. I have not forgotten the many who will lose their lives in this horrific pandemic.
