  1. The images are of geese with their goslings.
  2. "Ducklings"? Look like goslings.
  3. That's a rond anchor. Not designed to be dropped into water (There's nothing to make it "set"). An alternative to a mooring pin driven into the bank.
  4. Surely an Avo is an AVOmeter, https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Avometer .
  5. I thought a "tinny" was an aluminium dinghy - the theory being that a croc can chew up a GRP boat but not a metal one.
  6. Winded a 57 footer at Judes Ferry last year. I'm doubtful about doing it in a 70 footer. I think you need to wait to hear from someone who's actually winded a 70 footer! Well worth joining GOBA for the use of all their moorings.
  7. I assume that the rod in the photo is the gear change actuator. I know that on the big Yamahas (85hp) you need to put the gearbox into gear (and presumably the gear change lever in the same gear) before you attempt to offer up the bottom end. Can't anybody find a workshop manual online?
  8. I always used a bit of strimmer line to clear the telltale - has worked for the last 40 years without damaging anything.
  9. And more locks will be set in your favour.
  10. Are you sure that they're not BSP (same thread form as Whitworth, I think)?

  12. I think you'll find the moorings are in Salthouse Dock, 'behind' Albert Dock.
  13. Manually inflated life jackets are available https://crewsaver.com/uk/catalogue/leisure/lifejackets/. They wont save you if you are not able to inflate them.
