  2. Boat windows are awkward things, replacing them is shockingly expensive but there are only three components in a window, the frame, usually aluminium, the glass and the rubber seal. As Tracy D'Arth says, taking them apart is a sod of a job so just spend time cleaning them. You do have an advantage over those of us with steel boats though and that is that you will not have rust eating away beneath the frame and causing big problems. If you have to replace the screws that hold them in use stainless screws and the same holes. Good luck, boat stuff is a learning curve and by the time you have learn't half of it there is nothing that you can't tackle, houses are dead easy, cars a piece of cake and if that Elon Musk bloke wants a space capsule built that'll be dead easy too.

  8. According to Wikipedia he died in 2004. All round Good Bloke and into self sufficiency and good stuff. I've never read the book you mention but he knew his stuff so I guess its pretty good. Could do with more like him.

  10. Well, you've done the hard bit - that,s diagnosing the problem - its one or both of the gaskets. The sometimes fiddly bit is the rubber ring that should just press into the filter housing, that can twist or just not seat properly, don't overtighten anything. If its leaking from the bracket/block joint then the good old cornflake packet gasket will fix it, don't forget to cut out all the holes needed for bolts and oil. People suggest a smear of oil on the rubber ring to help it slide when you re fit the filter. Whenever I do a filter change there is plenty of oil all over everything anyway but it is probably a good tip.

  14. I guess they are 25mm long, M8 pan headed screws, Screwfix probably has them in boxes of 100 and B&Q in little poly packets., take one along to compare or you will end up with lots of wrong sized nuts and bolts like I have. Edit to add, see what I mean? Old Goat has got a kitchen draw full of wrong sized nuts and bolts just like me!
  15. Never done it so I am very clever.... except..... coming down a lock backwards (Don't ask) of course did the usual thing, shoved the fore end up to the gates, lifted the paddles, water drained out, fore end stuck on cill. Idiot.
