  1. I'm not convinced she could type all the details in a form you could understand.
  2. Try Mant Marine Services 07904031758. Can't remember his name but he does a fair amount of work in Cropredy. Not had any need of his services but heard several positive comments.

  4. Just a thought. Increased noise and change of tone !! If, as is likely, the engine was lifted to facilitate changing the mounts could the exhaust have been damaged? When I changed my mounts a couple of years ago I had to loosen the manifold to braided s/s connection.

  7. No,no,no,no. They are horrible flashing LEDs which can distroy your night vision even when driving. God knows their effect in a tunnel.
  8. 3 or 4 weeks ago I watched someone and his dad? struggling to sailaway on a newly bought boat that the younger one had bought to live on. They didn't even know how a morse control worked.
  9. Maybe that's because there's a lot of experience 'floating' around having been gained it from owning a boat, not reading an ill informed article in the press or programme made for mass entertainment. Apart from any other argument anyone who buys a S/H boat at the moment must be either desperate or mad. Prices are ridiculous. I'm typing this overlooking a 30year old 45' boat, tidy but with no particular selling points that up for sale at pennies under 50k.
  10. 1) Never did think much of Trip Advisor but that's my opinion 2) Personally, I don't like food in containers with plastic cutlery either but it's covid safe and not representative of normality. 3) Several times of late I've watched the food being delivered from kitchen window to customer within seconds 4) My food was 'fast food hot which is as good as you can expect when Al Fresco dining in the UK. Just to clarify, I've nothing to do with the pub other than being an irregular customer
  11. I'm intrigued! What 'bad reports have you heard of the Folly recently? I've been there many times over the years and never found fault. In my opinion, in the current Covid climate, they've done particularly well. True you can't drink in the pub proper but that's because it's layout doesn't make civid safe. They have a number of superior gazebos with wooden floors, proper tables and chairs, hand sanitizer everywhere, table service, slightly restricted but good menu. For the winter they are building something which will enable them to remain open but as I'm unsure of the details I can't comment further. Oh, I forgot to mention their beer, Old Hookey 🥛
  12. When fitting out VS 20+ years ago a book on fitting out, can't recall title recommended Cork tile adhesive. I went against that advice and used ordinary waterproof tile adhesive for shower, bathroom wall tiles, galley splashbacks, stove heath and stove surround. None have fallen off, yet😀
  13. Firstly it depends on the design. Mine, badged LeeSan, is basically 12" tube with a float surrounding it. The float 'floats' up and down but It doesn't really as it gets clogged up with ????. Sometimes a sharp bash with a hammer can result in a reading but can I be sure it's accurate! Presently it's indicating about half full but I had a pumpout yesterday. Accuracy would also depend on how far into the tank the sensor reaches. Since my tank is about 18" deep even in a perfect world it wouldn't start to give a meaningful reading until the tank is 1/3 full. Still, the gauge fills a hole in the instrument panel.
  14. Noted. I suspect that was more relevant in a vehicle where the front cylinders were cooled more by airflow.
  15. More or less the same as mine but I took the flow from the tapping next to the stat housing. That was 20 years + ago And still works perfectly.
