  1. If its a Caldwells window they don't hold stock glass, and its a long way to Wigan! The last time it happened to me, Calwells gave me the exact dimensions, and a local supplier made the new glass in a couple of days. Richard
  2. When you say Red Owatrol, which Owatrol product is it exactly please?
  3. A hardwood wedge in one side. Sized to hold the glass roughly half open. Richard
  4. It's simply that there is a theoretical possibility of an issue as you described, so why not just remove the possibility of the situation occurring? I do think that sometimes we over think things! Richard
  5. Just put some plastic sheet between the aerial clamp and the pole, and stop worrying! Richard
  6. A bath trap on the sink will get the pipe as high as possible, higher even than an elbow. Richard
  7. I have used Anderson connectors, and the contacts have been tinned copper, so I soldered them. Richard
  8. AVO were based in Dover IIRC, I remember seeing the factory when I was working down there. Richard
  9. Never had any issues along that stretch. The footpath is a public right of way, so shouldn't be blocked. Richard
  10. When I had a PRM120, I gave up trying to get everything perfectly adjusted in both forward and reverse. I made sure that the forward adjustment was best as it most used. I also got into the habit of taking the control beyond the idle position every time I put it into gear, so that all the slack was taken up, and the gearbox lever was against the stop. I still do it even though I have changed the box for a 150! Richard
  11. The system does rely on boats having a light that can be seen from the far end. I followed one through Preston Brook tunnel yesterday which just had a small bulb on the end of a piece of wire, no proper headlamp. Richard
  12. I'm pleased I made it through about 1.45 then! Richard
  13. Depends on whether there is a blending valve on the calorifier to limit the water temperature to the taps. If there is, you don't have a problem! Richard
  14. I didn't bother trying to fix to the cabin sides. I built out from the below gunwale battens to secure the bottoms, and used a ceiling batten hard up against the tops. I think if was doing it again, I would do the same but add PU40 sealant as well. I wouldn't like to rely on sealant and the primer, it relies on both the primer bond to the steel and the sealant to the primer. Richard
  15. As you have changed the oil, have you turned off the valve on the sump pump? Mine can pass some oil if it's not turned off. And has the little cap on the pump outlet been replaced? Richard
