  1. When I was a little squaddie in Germany during the late 70”s I was sat next to an older gentleman on a public bus. Him “where are you from” Me. ‘London” Him. I’ve been to London Me. Really. When was that Him. During the war. I was a bomber pilot. 😁😁 True story 😁😁
  2. Would love to see you telling him that 😂😂
  3. His son also posts some of his work/engines in the Gardner Diesel Engines forum on fb. Just in case you get bored and need to view more😁😁
  4. Sadly a good friend of mine hired a nb from a marina down the western end of the K&A. Loved it but said never again due to the lack of mooring spaces as a result of all the flats (boats) moored in anything like an accessible spot. He was gob smacked at their condition and surprised that some even float😁

  6. They are based in NI. Not the other side of the world😁. I know they generally have a number of engines in a state of reconditioning and repair. what about Redshaw engineering in Braunston. If they don’t have one perhaps they could make one? Marine Power Services? I think that is their name and I think they may be on here. My memory issues may have got the name wrong lol

  10. Sad news. In early/mid 80’s I lived in Richmond where he could frequently be seen walking around the town where he also lived. I always wanted to tell him how much I admired his music but never did out of respect for his privacy. At that time he had extremely long fingernails and I don’t know how he managed to actually live with them the way way they were. He was usually dressed in the typical 60’s hippy gear, a real character who obviously had some demons. A true music legend

  12. There is a YouTube video of a gent putting them on whist repainting his NB. Sadly I can’t recall his name but it seemed simple enough although a little trial and error. He even shows how to make a good job of the corners. In addition he shows what the product is. Sorry for the sketch info but I just came across it by accident
  13. Poor mouse might have a nut allergy 😂😂
  14. Apologies as I haven’t read all the previous posts BUT some 20+ years ago I Han an insight into the electricity infrastructure of the U.K. Even though I am not technically minded even I could tell what a poor state it was in and we were only one step from blackouts. I suspect we are not not much better these days despite the addition of solar and wind power. I don’t believe the U.K. has the capability to provide enough electricity for this so called electric progress. It’s a pity as I like the idea of it but there is also a huge misconception as to the ultimate cost to improve but also the generation costs and thus a huge increase in the unit price of electricity if you have to purchase it I.e you don’t generate your own via solar etc. Yes we will be greener but we also need to realise it’s going to be more expensive.
  15. Virtual Private Network. It masks your IP address and you can specify which country you want to use servers. It’s also used as a privacy tool and to access services in that country. Take Netflix as an example, if you are a U.K. subscriber and you have a VPN provider who has servers in the USA you can access Netflix USA which apparently has loads more content. I use one and I subscribe to YouTube premium but YouTube thinks I am in the Ukraine So charges me the rate for that country which is exceptionally cheap. The reason I raised the point is that Google doesn’t like VPNs as they lose revenue and sometimes, not often, it can cause an issue similar to the one you described. A very brief and simplified explanation of a VPN which are totally legit and legal.
