    too p or not too p

    When the second mate asks 'what are you doing' on those occasions I am aiming off boat. I always reply with 'Saving the loo'

    "Your lights are blinding!"

    I was once blinded by a boat with what looked like two car spot lights aimed dead ahead bolted to his roof . I had spots before my eyes after we passed in Braunston tunnel.

    Overwater Marina to Llangollen

    We just came off the LLangollen today (IWA volunteers worked all the Hurleston locks for us) ... there are absolutely nothing to worry about, The most scenic canal we have done todate , plenty of good moorings , there was never more than one boat in front of us waiting at locks but we were in a convoy of 5 going over the aqueduct to Trevor. There are a lot of hire boats but they were never a problem. Second time we have done this canal and can't wait to do it again.

    Mi Fi WHY!!!

    I have a a three mifi that works everywhere I use it (even Spain) so far - except Lower Heyford. I also have a Three phone but there is plenty of places on the system I cant get a phone signal.
  9. We have a Vetus dripless stern gland on our boat, but doesn't look anything like your picture. Someone will be along to help I'm sure.

    Temp Sensor

    Doesn't look to be tapered, I'll fit without as suggested. Thanks for your replies guys.

    Temp Sensor

    I thought that maybe the case as maybe the sensor is earthed via the threads as it is a single pole unit.

    Temp Sensor

    When fitting a new temp sensor to my Vetus engine, do I need to use thread locker/sealant. Thanks in advance.

    Stern Tube Leaking

    The double lip seal will need replacing.(common fault on these) . From vetus this is about £90 ( they don't sell the seals separately but with the brass housing .....I haven't found a supplier for the seals alone). Easy to do in the water but less stressful on the bank side.
