  1. It’s all ways handy to have a squeeze bottle of slightly salty water at hand near your battier box in case of emergencies. Saline solution is best to clean out the eye which is the most delicate part of the face. I use http://www.boots.com/en/Boots-Sterile-Saline-360ml_10991/
  2. I would check your stove surrounds and make sure that between the tiles and the carcass of the boat I had fire resistive product similar to http://www.enviroboards.co.uk/index.html There was a good article in the may issue of waterways world on BSS code of practise for stove installations. http://www.waterwaysworld.com/index.html My understanding is the new BSS code of practise for solid fuel stoves is only for new installation of stoves and does not cover any old installations.
  3. Fire on boats have the same causes as fire in house The owner As long as you maintain both correctly and fireproof around stoves And are carefully with naked flames And watch chip pans That only leaves acts of god (if you are so inclined to blame him)
  4. Again Congratulations like the old saying she who dares
  5. try looking at this link to get even more confused http://www.changeringing.co.uk/smajor.htm I think I stay with pressing the button on my cd player
  6. Did you notice fires cause by faulty electrics has increased over the years as well as petrol Both or greater than fire caused by stoves , so I think as there is many ways a fire can start , the first thing to make sure is we have at least two fire alarms\ co2 alarms

    red diesel

    Bob18 is correct it’s all the same diesel. Several years ago you could remove the dye by passing it through fuller’s earth but nowadays there is a chemical marker placed in red diesel along with the dye which can be detected in the exhaust gases
  8. I wonder if starcoaster has seen this boat on e bay http://www.ebay.co.uk/itm/160657593454?ssPageName=STRK:MEWAX:IT&_trksid=p3984.m1438.l2649
  9. what about when you are in a pub do you pull a bird or push ??? or is that the wrong pull
  10. Does seem a lot of money. But I suppose if you get a good connection every time no matter where you are , and you depend on the internet for business I suppose it worth it, but I think I will wait till someone has tried for a year before I rush out and sign up.
  11. makes you own troubles shrink, , and what a voice.
  12. What's on your mind?

  13. I’ve been fishing for over 40 years and have taught my 3 sons to fish. I still fish in the so called old fashion ways. To me the enjoyment is in not catching fish but in the pleasure of trying too. I do not think its fishing when useing equipment or methods that guarantee you fish, you may as save you money and go to the fish mongers. On the other hand to caught a fish by skill that enjoyment.
  14. if you are interested the following link tells where and what fish you can take. http://www.environment-agency.gov.uk/homeandleisure/recreation/fishing/119393.aspx
  15. Normally I use Mr Muscle shower shine, which works well But when lime scale builds-up (normaly due to running out and forgetting to buy a new bottle) I use a lemon cut in halve with white vinegar And that shifts really stubborn lime scale. Regards dc

    Not so long ago I had a problem with the immobilizer on my car and it turned out to be a sensor on the steering column and it also only happened now and again. So I would check with someone who knows you make of you van but of course not the dealer
  17. Under UK law, both flotsam and jetsam, (goods washed and thrown overboard respectively), remain the legal property of the original owner. (Remember the ship’s cargo which was washed up on a beach) so as been said the trolleys or any other scrap, still belong to the owner, I suppose you will have to come to an agreement with them first, unless it’s a hazard to navigation then bw and its agents have the responsibility to remove it, if the owner for what ever reason fails to do so. Hope this helps
  18. look a little like a slow cooker, does it operate in the sameway
  19. I do not know if this would apply here; But a few years back in Newcastle HMRC did a fuel check on all taxi's for red, there had been checks before but this time there confiscated the guilt taxis drivers taxis for fuel Tax evasion, the drivers concerned where advise by a solicitor to accept HMRC bill for lost fuel revenue to get there taxis released, as to fight them would take years to get back there taxies. with the HMRC you are guilty until you prove you are innocent.
  20. I agree what is need is more enforcement, and the cps to prosecute more cases, the police and councils know which scrap yards are involved in the black market trade.
