    Ha! Well I've just invested all my money in Orange thingy's generous offer so when you see a really big new shiny boat glide past your window that'll be me. (No, really, just don't!)
  3. Vetus are known for their hefty price markups. Same goes for many car makers and in fact any original equipment suppliers. Thing is that Vetus and many others are really just assemblers, there is almost certainly not a Vetus relay factory or, an Aquadrive CV joint factory, usually these things are off the shelf parts from somewhere else and if you can find something that fits it will be just as good. sometimes the tiny numbers marked on the parts are the clue. Sometimes though the parts really are made to fit, then you are stuffed.
  4. They do say that wire brushing might not be the best prep for painting over. I have always tried to avoid it if I can but I have never really kept notes on various bits of painting I have done. It looks like it polishes hard paint so I have always sanded, electric if possible but sometimes by hand even over non slip finishes. A film of paint is really thin so a couple or three coats is best. Others will have different ideas.
  5. Chimberly instead of chimney Grrrr. Prostrate instead prostate, even more grrr.
  6. And then there is 'wynd' According to the dictionary it is a word for a narrow lane, path. jitty, alley and a whole heap of local names. Around this part of the world it seems to be attached to places where winding engines once stood although I suppose wynd could refer to the narrow bit where cables once ran. Who knows.

  9. I,m sure you've thought this one through but what is the engine and whats wrong with it, I realise that if you knew what the problem is you'd have fixed it but its worth a try, might save some money.
  10. Big enough to let a handfull of soggy leaves get through, semi circular with the flat bottom flush with the deck and as big as possible

  12. Despite engaging 'Argumentative and nit picking' mode I can't find much to disagree with there. Anyway, showers - who needs 'em. Paraffin and Fairy liquid keep my skin soft and fragrant and a shower twice a year is more than enough. Back to 'Calm and agreeable' mode again. Pass the wine.

  15. Lots of variables. Our Beta 43 heats up a tank of hot water in about 1 hour, it will also give a useful charge to the batts in that hour too, it has not got lots of alternators either. If that sounds like magic it is because we only have a small hot water tank, only two 110 ah batts for domestic use, one small (rationed) telly ,with a tiny e bay inverter for phones and cordless stuff, led lights and the fridge is only used sparingly. Oh, one solar panel too. We also usually travel daily. We reckon that that works well but to increase the electric or hot water demand would need a lot of money
