  1. If I saw 'no time wasters' in an ad, I would totally ignore it and go look anyway if I was interested. How would the seller know I was a time waster until I had wasted his time? And at that point if I decided I didn't want to go further with the purchase I wouldn't give a damn what the seller thought!
  2. Try calling this place - one description says 19mm and one says 33mm! https://www.curtainpolestore.co.uk/5370/rolls-neo-19mm-rings-spun-brass/?size=6739&utm_source=Google_Products&utm_medium=Google_Products&utm_campaign=Google_Products&gclid=CjwKCAiAhreNBhAYEiwAFGGKPOeUs0Qjj0CF7lSBff9vBvr9xax29zsHhiAFcbm2wipesPyhTjHbDRoCHfkQAvD_BwE
  3. That's already covered in a previous post - the gofund thing was in response to people wanting to donate but couldn't. She never asked for a penny - watch the original YouTube thing, or if you can't find it, cruising the cut did an interview with her.
  4. That's a bit harsh considering she took on legal cover (at her cost) which is now paying to chase the surveyor. Also she is working hard to make stuff to sell - where is she asking for money? The only request is for folk to look at her website and maybe buy something she has worked at.
  5. Guess what you are getting for christmas..............................
  6. We were taught 'Richard Of York Gave Battle In Vain'
  7. Is he deaf? I SAID IS HE DEAF! and before anyone says 'half past three', its not yet one o'clock.

    Probably same as importing anything else - present HMRC with a receipt showing what you paid and they will value the item, maybe what you paid, maybe more. Then its 10% duty and then 20% VAT on the valuation plus the duty. And if you pay to get it shipped, I think that gets added in for the duty and VAT. Not cheap post Brexit.

  11. Ring and ask them, they really are friendly guys - or at least were when I had one.

  13. Ey up duck - shortsighted?
  14. I used to have a Dunton ally one, loved it - it too was not to be used by anyone other than me, till a friend, who was helping me up Stoke Bruerne flight, used it without me spotting him. He used it on one lock, and it now resides somewhere in the 2nd lock! There were some available a couple of years ago, but now seem as rare as the proverbial rocking horse bits.

  16. All the wonderful suggestions and comments and finally ^^ nicknorman asks the question we should all have been asking if a boat is sitting low in the water!
  17. I don't think we ever got an answer to this ^^^ If it were me, I'd be tempted to invest a few hundred quid and get an experienced surveyor in to get a professional opinion - a new boat these days is an awful lot of money to be not right. I know its well and truly after the stable door has been shut, but anyone having a new boat built (who doesn't have lots of boat experience) would be well advised to get a surveyor in to monitor the build at various stages.

  22. That applies to a few boats I've seen advertised!
  23. Thanks for the comments - my meanderings were directed at ending up with a calorifier for onboard hot water. Probably hugely expensive for not a huge improvement!
  24. Slightly off-topic but still skin tank related - does anyone know if a skin tank has ever been successfully fitted to a vintage iron sided ex-working boat (apologies in advance to the vintage purists)
