    Yarwoods Cabin Porthole

    Looking at some old, period, photos of Yarwood's built GU boats all the portholes have the same round head fittings as does Radiant to this day. I was told that all the porthole were fitted with nuts but to change the glass in the cabin porthole you would have to rip out part of the cabin lining. It doesn't make sense for the yard to use different fittings for different portholes on the same build.

    But not a Northwich porthole. The thing is Yarwoods seemed to use stuff that was unique to them or made by them while H&W got stuff off the shelf. The Northwich porthole is flat with an inner locking ring. This is from the Radiant. The small notch at about 11 & 5 o'clock are in the locking ring.

    Sorry Dave, I'm from 'artfudshire (via 'ampshire and/or Dorsetshire) and you lost me on the second bit that's why I got you to speak to Joe Hollingshead for me.

    I've just re-read my post and didn't realise that it had changed all my 'orses to rose...don't you just love technology. Where's my quill?

    Predictive blooming text! 'Orses not roses! Mind you they do have them pointy bits and if you give a bunch to someone there is no telling where it might lead. So roses, like 'orses, can be dangerous.

    It's just 10ft of hose without any add ons. I don't know what scooshie bits are.

    Sorry, no on both counts. I was given to me ages ago from a friend in Braunston who used to boat in the 60s early 70s. The only chance I had to 'rose boat I turned down as I was frightened of 'roses after one came up to me on a lock side while boating at night - scared the living do-dah out of me. Pity really. It's all I got though.
