    LPG Ovens

    I have a Nordmende CTG51LPGWH 50cm Twin Cavity LPG Gas oven. No need to change jets as already set for LPG. It does need mains for the ignition though as above.
  2. I find that a mini roller to put paint on and a 3" foam brush to tip off works for me. Prep is the key to a decent finish as has been said and can't be over emphasised...but is the most horrible part of the job.
  3. Missing a L there Tony...
  4. Make sure you moor up next to Blackrose to keep the flies off...
  5. I think hider was asking you to manually put the lever forward and back with the cable off and see if it functions normally... If you have my apologies, but it sounded like you adjusted the cable while still connected which wasn't what he advised.
  6. Perhaps they are additional homemade props for the clothes line?
  7. This is the sign - first image - at Abingdon. It is not worded exactly like the temporary looking ones at Goring but near enough... When I asked the resident Abingdon keeper just now what the charges were he said: "24hours free, then a fiver each night for the next two days, after that fifty a night" I asked will that be the same at Goring? "Yes" Why couldn't the EA just put up these signs - 2nd image at Staines - at their sites as soon as the TVM signs came down early in the year?
  8. There are signs now at Goring saying "Mooring Fees apply contact duty lock keeper"... There is no mention of what the fee actually is or for what. They have only just gone up in the last couple of weeks. When i asked the duty lockie i was told the info which I gave to the OP. Why would the EA put up those signs if there were no fees? What a mess... or am i being daft and missing something.
  9. Thing is boat numbers may have dropped but their sizes have increased...
  10. Well that contradicts what I was told last week
  11. 24 hours free, fiver each night for two more nights and then off you go...unless you can arrange something else or just stay there like some have... Electric is available on the lock island head mooring for a fee which i don't know. Don't believe there is a resident lockie in the house just yet as it is let but one is due... Steve is the resident at Cleeve lock just up from Goring and may be able to help as he often double mans it. * Sometimes boats stay on the tail mooring but weir stream side, that may also be a option.
  12. I never really thought of it as a security measure, i suppose you could say if anyone were watching the boat the light might make it look occupied.... But most likely it would just look like a light that comes on at night!
  13. Just in from getting a narrowboat out from where it was stuck under a mooring. The river has come up, only a few inches, but enough for it to lean over and be pinned under the ledge with tight lines. Took a couple of lads on the side and me to push it out from under and tie again. Not seen the owner for a couple of days. Might have been a issue in the morning.

    Rain!

    Sorry, it is my fault... I have done the prep and bought the paint. Although on the plus side it is washing the dust off...
  15. Always a topic to trigger the armchair admirals this
