  1. Are they Worcester Marine windows?
  2. Slide the clamp back, use drill bits to test the fit along the prop shaft into the gland. You could use pencils, pens, or crayons to give you an idea and measure them.
  3. Some marinas grade their moorings ie Gold, Silver, and Bronze, and charge different rates accordingly. Some might charge extra if you're a liveboard.
  4. A boat caught up in a lock and listing?
  5. Just watched it all, very interesting. Thanks for putting it on.
  6. Bosch T123X Jigsaw blades are the best steel cutting blades i have ever used.
  7. Looking at your photos surely you have ample room for a shower, basin and toilet, without going over your porthole. Could you show us a drawing with measurements of the space you are struggling with?
  8. Hello rocketman, As others have mentioned, pictures help enormously. Old Dutch barges can have 'quaint' fixtures and fittings not often seen by many boaters on these waterways. Even on my modern boat i have 2 'greasers', 1 for the stern gland, and another for a gland on my steering. If you haven't already, consider joining the DBA, the Dutch Barge Association. There is a wealth of knowledge on there. I wish you were closer, I would have nipped over for a gander. I too am on Thunderboat, and also not a troll. Joe
  9. My mooring is opposite, I'll watch out for you. Brodsworth is moored on the canal at Viking Marina.
  10. C. Campling (Goole) Ltd, is now Viking Marine (Goole) Ltd.
  11. First two pictures of Exol Pride in the New Junction, the third of Pride penning out of Ocean Lock (Goole) onto the River Ouse.
  12. I would be concerned if the oil pressure with SAE30 was too low at idle but as it is in the high 30s I'm not. It goes up into the 40s with increased rpm so no worries on my part. With multigrade oil the pressure is pretty constant at any revs. When doing oil changes in the future I may alternate between 30 grade and multigrade. Sort of using 30 grade as a flushing oil. What do you think?
  13. Do you think a folding shelf bracket might do the trick? They come in all sorts of sizes and strengths.
  14. There are working barges on the European inland waterways offering accommodation for a fee of course. Have a look at binnenvaart cruises.nl
