  1. Brass woodscrews in No2 and No3 sizes do seem to be widely available, but I don’t see anything longer than 1/2” which may be a problem unless your trim is very thin. Otherwise pin, punch and fill, which is a right faff.
  2. If you want to secure the top oak shelf to the battens, put countersunk screws from underneath, you’ll only see them if you are lying on the floor. If you want to trim the front edge of the oak, I’m not clear why you would want to remove the trim? I’ve trimmed the edges of shelves etc with hardwood trim and just glued it with weatherproof (blue bottle) EvoStik wood glue, clamped while it dried. None of it has come off yet
  3. Is the offside pontoon at the junction still there? Overnighted on that once. OT: Is that neon sign a Tracey Emin work? (edit to correct auto-correct)
  4. Online can be not so good. I ordered a bathroom basin from them and it arrived promptly, but badly scratched. They shipped a replacement promptly, and the replacement arrived equally badly scratched in exactly the same way the first one was, which may indicate a systematic manufacturing fault, but they clearly hadn't inspected either of them. They arranged collection of both promptly and, after a bit if a delay, eventually refunded me. (I was going for a quick win tart-up of the bathroom by replacing the ancient beige basin with nice new white one, still available in the same design. Now going for a proper refit instead, which is what I should have done in the first place...)
  5. Single-handing a deep lock, caught the centre line round the Teleflex lever, had to chase the boat (briefly!). ETA: Also done the thing with the engine stop/horn buttons!
  6. Did you ever find a copy of this online? I discovered on the boat today a paper photocopy of the C2/C3/C4 installation manual that I didn’t know I had. If you still need it I can scan and email it.
  7. The black threaded port adapters will pull out of the old pump when you release the slide clips. A new ParMax will come with similar snap-in adapters, with luck they will be the same fitting on the pump side and the old ones will go straight in. Worst case you may have to use the threaded adapters from the new pump and move the tap connectors over (the “tap connectors” are the brass nuts where the black pump adapters meet the grey pipe). The clips on your old ParMax look the same as the ones on my Shurflo shower pump (in fact the whole business end of the pump does), and as far as I recall the adapters are interchangeable.
  8. A set of spanners to fit every nut. The torch you left on the boat before setting off for the pub when it was still light.
  9. And if funding is not forthcoming?
  10. Ahead of the game with the Rule of Six, though!
  11. This post cannot be displayed because it is in a forum which requires at least 10 posts to view.
  12. Travel in and out of tier 3 is advised against, not forbidden.
  13. Try Uplands, they usually have a few come in for winter moorings.
