  1. I would be very upset if anyone refilled a pound without checking the status of any boats in it, and my boat filled and sank as a result. What precautions should I take to make my boat sinking proof in that situation?
  2. Hmm, I could do that in five mins with a drill bit and a square file!
  3. Well, a new world job only needs the fan on for very extended grilling, and the ignition is easily switched to 12v.
  4. "use my shaft as a rather large selfie stick" Blimey. That could be distracting.
  5. I was once cycling down the towpath and ran over my own dog. I wasn't doing more than 10mph. He was fine, but then I suspect he'd survive a tank running him over. He is a very stupid dog. He's worth 2 cones.
  6. He said the hatches are 2' from the waterline. While he may ship the odd bucketful, he's not going to sink as a result of an aperture 2' up. Not unless a big bugger of a boat goes round and round him in circles all the way.
  7. Hmm. I'm now a CCer. I'm totally relaxed about how far I'm moving, and am satisfied that I'm using the boat bona fide for navigation (I need a pump out) So I'm fine ya?
  8. In a big storm on the aire n Calder a fair amount of water got blown up the Springer's exhaust. Most people moor head to wind to avoid it. I suppose she would have sunk eventually as the exhaust blew like a Walrus.
  9. Be aware however, that if you load the ig2600 hard it gets rather loud. Running 1kw plus from it makes it a bit antisocial. Great at low loads though as you say. Oh and I have used the hell out of mine on a building site (cement mixer, chop saw etc) and it took it no problems. Only fault was once it wouldn't generate power, kipor v helpful, just twizzled the throttle on the carb and that sorted it. No trouble from that since.
  10. I'm telling you KEEP MOVING DON'T STOP ANYWHERE
  11. Putting in pins is tantamount to CMing KEEP MOVING AT ALL TIMES
  12. I had to take the bolinder out of my boat, cos even though I asked at every local garage no one could sell me any semi-diesel. I suppose you can only get it in the Midlands...
