  1. Earlier Commons leader Andrea Leadsom dismissed the petition as not being on the same scale as the pro-Brexit vote in the 2016 referendum. "Should it reach 17.4 million respondents then I am sure there will be a very clear case for taking action," she told MPs. She added: "It's absolutely right that people do have the opportunity to put their views and that can then spark yet another Brexit debate."
  2. He means the crimper didn't work, but the glue lined H/S is holding.
  3. B = Bring O = Out A = Another T = Thousand Pounds
  4. 70mm² NOT 17mm As they don't offer a 70mm2, you would need to up the size to 95mm2 (010607 684/0.40 95mm², 19.7mm OD, 500A ) Or try another supplier.
  5. For a lot of folks their boat is their home. Not everyone is a 'weekend hobby-boater'.
  6. Do they ? I've been 'done'. My boat came from 'non-C&RT' waters and was not registered. I phoned up, requested registration, paid £20 by card, plates received 48 hours later (its not difficult)
  7. If you just want a simple 'directly to the cylinder' regulator ..................… If you want another 'switch-over' you may not find one quite as easily. Belgium uses a variety of connection on their propane cylinders but the one you want is to fit a (Belgium cylinder refeference) "O1P", or a "P18" These use the same "Internal thread POL" connector as the UK / Calor Gas Propane cylinders. If you put your location into the attached - it will show you the nearest gas dealer. https://www.antargaz.be/en/private/gas-in-cylinders/gas-cylinder-distributors
  8. A leaking cylinder should not create a safety issue if it is correctly installed. It is maybe a case of boaters using something that was not originally designed for boating. The majority of users for LPG would not be trying to keep a cylinder in a 'gas tight' container (a boat), they would be used in vehicles and caravans where the gas can vent & escape down-and-out under the vehicle. Then there are mobile-homes and rural domestic properties where the cylinders are kept 'outside' and again the escaping gas can vent and disperse in the air. This is why it is crucial that your gas locker is gas-tight to at least the height of the regulator - except for the 'overboard drain vent' which must be clear ie. not have any sponges or bits of old ripe that can block the drain. It frightens me to death when I see gas cylinders stood on the deck or in the well deck - that is death just awaiting the 'call'.

  10. Until someone who knows the answer comes along ………………………... I was always told it was an overpressure relief and once it has 'blown out' it remain open and needs replacing. Presumably you don't keep a 'standard' screw directly into the cylinder' type as an emergency spare ?
  11. Rule Britannia ! Proper measurements, non of this furrin stuff.
  12. I have always said "size doesn't matter".
  13. UK based Japanese Car maker to close...…………... Ooopppps - sorry that should read "Japanese car maker to increase production in the UK" Toyota is to build a new hybrid electric vehicle in the UK for Suzuki, in a boost to British car industry workers amid continued Brexit uncertainty. The hybrid will be based on Toyota’s Corolla model and made at its Burnaston plant in Derbyshire, with engines supplied by the company’s Deeside factory in north Wales.
  14. If anyone needs their bottoms touching up and they have used Zinger (or similar) Lidl may have the answer. In the middle aisle from 21st March. https://www.lidl.co.uk/en/MiddleofLidl.htm?articleId=21055
  15. "Big enough for the both of us" (70's - bit after my time)
  16. Good - we can finally leave. (either no deal, or with the deal - but we cannot vote again on the deal unless the deal changes, so its leave with no-deal)
  17. I was involved in obtaining ISO 9000 for the company. I could not get anyone to accept that all it meant was that the company produced all items to the same 'quality'. That quality could be extremely poor - but it would be consistent. ISO 9000 is not a measure of quality it is just a measure of consistency.
  18. Its always worth reading the bye-laws Vessels passing 17. Except as provided in Bye-law 19 where two vessels meet in any part of the canal where they cannot pass in safety the master of the vessel which is nearest to that part of the canal where the vessels can pass in safety shall navigate his vessel back to such passing place and allow the other vessel to pass: Provided always that (a) a vessel which is not towing another vessel shall give way to a vessel which is towing another vessel or vessels; (b) vessels which are unladen shall give way to vessels which are laden; (c) on the Aire and Calder Navigation, the Sheffield and South Yorkshire Navigation, the Trent Navigation and the Weaver Navigation, a vessel which is proceeding against the tide or stream shall give way to a vessel which is proceeding with the tide or stream. Course of Vessel when passing or overtaking 18. Without prejudice to the generality of Bye-law No. 16 the following Bye-law shall apply to vessels passing or overtaking other vessels on any canal:- (1) Except as hereinafter mentioned where two vessels proceeding in opposite directions meet the master of each vessel shall steer his vessel to its starboard side in such a manner that such vessels pass freely with the port side of each vessel nearest to the port side of the other vessel; Provided always that (a) where one but not both of such vessels is a hauled vessel the masters of such vessels shall steer the vessels in such a manner that the vessels pass freely with the hauled vessel between the towing path and the other vessel; ……………………………………….. ……2.(b ) where a hauled vessel is overtaking another hauled vessel the master of the vessel overtaken shall slacken his hauling line and steer his vessel away from the towing path in such a manner as to permit the overtaking vessel to pass freely between the towing path and the vessel overtaken and the master of the overtaking vessel shall keep his vessel as close as possible to the towing path whilst passing the other vessel.
  19. Evening Standard 20 minutes ago : Theresa May is understood to be requesting only a “short delay” to Brexit in her letter to EU leaders today. The Prime Minister is writing to European Council president Donald Tusk to ask for a delay to the current March 29 amid a deadlock in Parliament. There was speculation that Mrs May would suggest a three-month extension in the hope of securing parliamentary approval for her deal by that time. A government source said this morning that the PM would only be requesting a “short” delay, but did not say how long exactly.
  20. In guess it depends on how big the 'bots' are.
  21. The EU will struggle financially - allowing another 'bankrupt economy' to enter whilst losing their 3rd biggest contributors. (UK contribution 13.5% of EU Income, Germany 19%, France 16.6%)
