  1. Looks like it does a good job stripping , I am going to wait until paint arrives before stripping back , I tried a spot with the sander and it did not seems to bad a job , maybe just a extra 4 or 5 days work.
  2. Yes I am going with the Jotun range primer / topcoat . It's worth the extra work to get a decent finish , 5 days and I should be back to steel again , I thought the vibrating hands and numb fingers had finished for now but never mind.
  3. Looks like back to metal again 😂
  4. The red oxide was the no nonsense Screwfix one. The final painting will be sprayed , I have just put the oxide on with a roller for protection , was this a mistake if using 2 pak ?
  5. At the moment I am doing a full repaint , I have been back to bare metal , vactan treated in a few places and covered with two coats of red oxide. I am looking at paint choices now but there is so many . I would welcome any knowledgeable opinions , epoxy 2 pak ? Polyurethane 2 pak? I am looking for a shiny gloss finish , cream on the roof and black everywhere else , planning on adding aggregate for anti slip areas. Back deck has a bit of pitting(would epoxy fill pitting in ?) but besides that steel is pretty good.
  6. No it was because of idiot boat owner , it was not safe to be used , it was rotten with holes in it . He was told it was unsafe and took no notice .
  7. This is the pontoon before the lock , the 48 hour moorings are just past the lock.
  8. Yes meadow lane lock. On approach landing stage coming off the Trent .
  9. Be wary on approach to lock , you will have to moor alongside waterways work boat.
  10. Piles of crap and mud around the Nottingham canal , they never clear up and leave hazards for me dogs all over , I just walk over and kick it back in , if I went past and my dogs got cut I would kick them in too.
  11. Yes it dragged a load in ,. Fuel pipe has been blown through with a pump , valve removed and cleaned out , the filter in the valve is missing but I have a inline filter which was also blown through , it's a glass bowl filter and looks clean. At least for now it's keeping us warm , when my o ring arrives next week for the webasto and I get it up and running I will adjust the fire. I don't want to mess the fire up without a heat back up running.
  12. It just seems to be a bit weaker now , before on setting 3 it would warm all the radiators up , now they don't get as warm , the flame on full looks like it used to do on setting 2 , it's nice and blue but not very high . I think it needs turning up a bit. I wish I never ran out of diesal now , lol , it all started playing up after that.
  13. Cheers mate , I will have a look through when my brain is in gear , gave it a clean out and working in a fashion now , I think it just needs tweeking a little bit now.
  14. Hello all , can anybody help me with a diagram of the lockgate valve shown in photos. And set up instructions. Thanks a lot. Alan.
  15. I am with curtis marine , reasonable cost with contents cover as well.
