  5. Bilt Hamber are a well respected company producing good products and certainly no where near the horrendous prices that some of the detailing companies charge. Personally I haven’t used them but see good reviews on a frequent basis when reading the motoring forums (detailing world is one0.

  8. Yup I noticed those words. I would suggest that every vehicle is bullet resistant but that the amount of said resistance is dependent upon what measures are taken to increase the level of resistance. If it is actually armoured I would hate to have to pay the fuel bill. I suppose that advert will appeal to the local drug dealers ?
  9. What a great article. I was lucky enough to be able to buy a cabin stool that he painted and I absolutely love it. The colours are so vivid and each time I look at it I notice more of the detail. I am unable to account for why I admire good canal art but I just enjoy looking at it and admiring the skill of those who created it.

  13. Er it was a skip. I have been on boats that were more stable and steered better ? I now subscribe to Readly the online app for magazines. I think its great but I do prefer the paper version of magazines probably because its a tactile thing.

  15. Congratulations and well done for taking the bull by the horns. I say (tongue in cheek) that when I had mine it was the best thing that happened to me! I found it truly liberating and like a huge weight had been lifted off my shoulders. No more what ifs or buts just the realisation that I should make the most of life and enjoy it whilst I could. I got cancer two years later but obviously survived and it definitely made me think how lucky I am. Rather than be on my death bed and think 'I wish I had done that' I would rather have the opportunity to think 'I wish I hadn't done that'
  16. Apologies for posting a question and then disappearing but I had eye surgery a few weeks ago and as a result I am sometimes unable to use electronic devices for reading. Thank you for all the replies. Unfortunately with the exception of the animal behaviourist I have tried all the other suggestions where possible. The dog loves being on the boat just not when the main engine is running. We have a generator that is cocooned and when this is running the dog couldn't care less. I think we will go down the route of the animal behaviourist. Many thanks to all who took the time of offer their s
  17. Thank you Alan. She was built in 2002 so probably another issue for me.
  18. That’s a great idea. I even know where to get one. Many thanks. I do love the Gardner, it’s hard to put it into words but there is just something about it. Power, sound, engineering. I have the original worksheets which are laminated. The handwriting is beautiful and the detail is excellent. Clearly an age when people took great pride in their work (1930).
  19. We have a 70ft trad stern NB which was built by Warwickshire Flyboats and is powered by a Gardner 3L2. I absolutely love the boat and in particular the vintage engine BUT the dog doesn’t. He enjoys the boat but when the engine is going he literally shakes like a leaf. To be fair he is a total wuss, fireworks terrify him and any other loud or unusual noises do the same. We have tried every remedy going, medical and physical to no avail. We are going to give it this year and see if there is any change and if not drastic measures are called for. I do not want to sell the boat as she is

  22. If he is a ‘little man’ how does he reach the discharge fitting. Must be a real a pain in the arris for him ? My boat came with a self pump out which has a ‘huge’ motor to pump the crap out. Never used it and no intention of ever using it ?
  23. Ha, he was on Pointless Celebrities last night. What an appropriate title for a special edition of the quiz show Pointless. He was that tanned my wife thought he was from the Indian sub continent and my sister in law who is one of those sad types who is addicted to the ‘soaps’ didn’t even recognise him. Many years ago I was staying in a hotel in Whitchurch which has a golf course attached to it. The bar of said golf course is his local. He was present one evening whilst I was there and apparently he is highly thought of by the locals as he allegedly does quite a bit for the comm

  25. I don't wish to be a party pooper or indeed support any of the data providers but: Should the data provider be able to show that more than the allowance has been tethered could/would they bill for that data regardless of the total amount allowed by your plan? Additionally if an Apple product is subject of a jailbreak what are the implications for the warranty or indeed repairs?
