  1. Love it Brian, now try hiring one in France. Can't even get a compressor and pot type system quoted until I can tell them exactly when and how long I want it for. Not even a simple day / week rate quote. They do things very differently out there sometimes.
  2. I did say in the OP it has to come off.
  3. This is the photo today from the marina manager.
  4. Thanks for the link. Did 1 set of heads do your complete roof? Mine is a WB too and I have about 30sq/m to get down.
  5. Is it this? https://www.ebay.co.uk/itm/Roberts-R12550-Concrete-Grinder-Unused-/134044675918?mkcid=16&mkevt=1&_trksid=p2349624.m46890.l49286&mkrid=710-127635-2958-0
  6. Do you have any links to the scabbler.? Was it air or mains?
  7. Hello All So its been 10 years since the roof was painted and now it needs a strip off completely. This is not optional! Really it's not! I can get a lot of it off by just scraping and the rest I can get with angle grinder. I'm not going to get it back to bright shiny blasted metal I know so I am looking for advice on treatments ready for the top coat. The surface will be lightly pitted. Suggestions please.

    Fan Wiring

    Hi. I have acquired this fan. 240v. It has 4 wires earth, blue, black, brown. It also I think needs this capacitor wired in because it doesn't run at full speed if just the blue and brown wires are connected. It also doesn't like starting. It will also run with blue and black and also with brown and black connected together. Can I get some advice on this please. Kevin
  9. Hi looking to do a battery set up like yours, how are they doing ? Where did you buy them from and if you don't mind me asking how much where they ? 

    Kind regards gary 

  10. Thanks for the reply. is it in good condition and for sale?
  11. Thanks Alan. Gale Force have it listed but not in stock but I'm in no rush. Kevin
  12. I tried that first but didn't come up with it.
  13. Hello All I am trying to find a replacement light for my WBNB which was hit by a hire boat.| I would prefer to replace it with an exact one but for the life of me I can't remember where I sourced it from so hoping someone on the group will know. Please see photos. Thanks
  14. I did it wasn't too bad and I had a great prop puller. My top tip would be to tie all tools parts removed including the prop something so when (not if) you drop it it's not lost. I've also done it out of water. It's 500% easier! My prop will come off without fouling the rudder.
