  1. Mushroom vents

    Cover the cross bar and central bolt with thin foam glued or cable tied on. Worked for me! Any condensation on the curved surface should run down to the edges and on to the roof. Richard
  2. Anti slip on gunnels

    Bird cage sand from a pet shop - it's nice and dry. Use a kitchen sieve to get out any big bits. Mask up the area, apply a good coat of gloss, sprinkle with plenty of sand immediately. Let it dry overnight, vacuum off the excess sand. Apply a thin top coat over the sand. Richard
  3. Rubbing pipe

    This happened on my Beta 38 as well, just after crossing the Ribble estuary, worn right through. 15mm copper pipe fits better if you solder a coupling to each end, makes up the diameter and gives the clip something to bite on. Rotate the air filter away from the pipe. Richard
  4. What's the Llangollen like these days?

    If you mean the sign just after the lift bridge, it refers to the entrance to the boat yard. The (big) winding hole is about 200 yds further on. Richard
  5. Beta 38 air filter...

    Try these; Inline filters FFR-CA5315 Midland Chandlers EA-094 Reisse 46100020 Fram CA5315 Beta 211-61831
  6. What's the Llangollen like these days?

    If you can be in Llangollen at the weekend, it is quieter, as most of the hire boats tend to be there mid-week. We spent two very pleasant days there earlier this month. If you want longer, it is possible to moor just east of the narrow section for free. Richard
  7. Empty Paint Tins

    Plastic supermarket soup containers are good, and the lids seal properly. Richard
  8. Delayed prop turn - PRM120D

    I had exactly the same symptoms. Forward clutch shot. Suggest you contact Primrose Engineering (RWLP of this parish) for a rebuild. Richard
  9. So I was wondering about the cost of the PRM120 repair? New gearbox? PRM replacement. I'm minded to do the repair as its only done 290 hrs.

  10. Hi Ryeland, I have exactly the problem you had in 2013 with the PRM120 gearbox. The marina aren't especially helpful and waxed on about the benefits of swapping it for a PRM150.

  11. The tiller will just lift off the rudder, the bottom of the tiller is wedge shaped and fits into a wedge shaped socket on the top of the rudder. Richard
  12. mains powered drill for a very big hole saw (7 inch)

    It's an old Wolf, so not available now! I could get it to Chessington on Saturday if that's any good to you. Richard
  13. were broken down awaiting a new prm120' had the Sam issues as you

  14. mains powered drill for a very big hole saw (7 inch)

    I have a single speed 590rpm 240v drill which you are welcome to borrow. Where are you - I am near Gloucester. Richard
  15. Historical Hillmorton

    The 'basin' is part of the old route of the canal. The corner was cut off as part of the straightening works. Richard
