  1. My deskwash uses a diaphram pump but that discharges through a garden hose type trigger gun.
  2. Rightly or wrongly when I ballasted VS many years ago I painted the bilge then Waxoyl 'd it. The slab ballast was placed on thin waxoyl impregnated laths of wood.
  3. And you can download most (not all) to your device and keep it for 3 weeks from date of broadcast. I tend to use it for radio 4 or 4 extra. Correction , up to 4 weeks not 3. It's Borrowbox that's 3 weeks
  4. I've got the Screwfix version. Use it for 'clean work. For 'dirty' work I've got a Kratcher. The Kratcher has done stirling work over the years sucking all kinds of muck and bullets out of the engine bilges. Only yesterday it sucked about a litre of engine oil out of the bilge and skin tank (don't ask) .
  5. If you're listening to Radio 4 (or any other BBC station) try listening via BBC Sounds (I Player re-badged). When I use it on my tablet it plays uninterrupted. Not sure if it stays connected between programmes.
  6. Strange, I recently moored for a year at Wigrams Turn and witnessed any number of turnarounds. I don't think I saw one single supermarket van turn up for hirers the whole time I was there. Nor did I see a single pallet or a fork lift to handle it. What I did see was hirers loading their boats up with food (and booze) from local supermarkets. Equally I saw moorers, both leisure and residential, do exactly the same. I include myself in this. Over the years I have used canalside food shops and overall found the prices high (understandable and acceptable), choice limited and quality poor (unacceptable).
  7. Are we talking Cubs or Sports Cubs? I used ride both. A mate of mine had several. My parants wouldn't let me have a bike so used ride them without them knowing. Really must get a m/c licence one day.😎 Different world back then.
  8. They depend upon one having a waist😳
