  1. Without any information on what you want the rings for, it is difficult to give any more detailed advice.
  2. These people sell Stainless rings in a variety of sizes :- https://www.gsproducts.co.uk/stainless-steel-roundrings/
  3. I suspect he is referring to the Uxter Plate, and the section which is being affected by the oily water is the guard iron below the lower tunnel band, which most boaters paint with marine enamel. (See attached photo) As for the paint wearing off at the waterline, surely most boats do that, which is why I always used to lay a couple of extra coats of blacking onto the waterline.
  4. Some Brewers, who were a bit more concerned about brewing good beer, rather than mass prioducing a brown liquid that made their shareholders rich survived very well. A couple that spring to mind are Shepherd Neame, and Wadworths.
  5. It was definitely called the "Rose and Castle"in the 1960's. We always stopped there for a couple of pints when mooring, or passing through Braunston.
  6. We moored at Napton Junction for a long time, and the advantage is that you have an immediate choice of three routes with even more a few miles on from Braunston. As for short days or overnight, there are several lovely mooring places, looking across open farmland, between Napton and Braunston. and only an hour away.
  7. Yes I am aware of that, but some oil refineries apparently have the facilities to clean and purify old engine oil which is re-used by adding it to "new" engine oil. it is probably what some of the cheapo oils use.
  8. I know that some re-cycling centres require proof of residency, but this seems to be another example of muddled thinking. What do you think they do with waste oil? They sell it for re-processing, so there is a profit in re-cycling

  11. Your Partner and friend need to sort someone out. I can get a blood test at my GP's within a few days. I also had my annual Cancer related Consultation on schedule in Bristol two weeks ago.
  12. Yes they have, many have been pressed into service providing medical care for those who's treatment would have otherwise been delayed by the pressure of Covid 19 on Hospitals.
  13. Well we have you to make up for that deficiency.
  14. When thick Ice was preventing us from negotiating a curve, I seem to remember that we would reverse back into the cleared area trying to turn at the same time, and then attack the new ice at speed. It was a very slow and repetetive process.
