  1. Does anyone know the owner of the boat pynots & sixpence? It was heavly listing at cossington today on the river soar. Someone knocked on and managed to remove the centre rope which causing the problem. The boats now level but the owner might want to keep an eye on it and adjust its ropes

  4. I want my webasto them top to stay on longer that 30-40 minutes. It's turns its self of after it reaches temperature but doesn't come back on in till turned back on by the timer. I know people that turn theirs on with the flame Sybil and it stays on until they press the flame symbol again. Please help. It seems like it's not worth havin if it's only on for this short time

    Ratcliffe Lock

    What I got is.... Lock 58 Ratcliffe lock is currently closed to the navigation until further notice. The retaining collar on one of the bottom end lock gates has failed. This has affected the stability and operation of the gate.. Can another forum member confirm this? someone must have passed that way or has the same notification. Apparently Birstall lock was closed yesturday and should be re opening today also.

    Pulley

    I had to use calcutt in the end and that was for one off of another engine. All up and running again now.
  8. What can I say. I recognise a few of these locations and those prices for the facilities avalable nearby makes it a no brainer to continuously cruise or go into a marina. Ripp off Canal and river trust. there site quotes "We appreciate that cruising in winter can become challenging as the weather starts to bite." so what we will do, is exploit that!
  9. Is there a fuel boat due on the soar this month?

    Bmc overhaul review

    Its a thornycroft engine with an unknown amount of hours. I give it a general service as it needs it filters. Oil, valve clearance, glow plugs cleaned. Its would be just nice to know where mysterious oil leaks are coming from (which work there way onto the belts). To stop the wetting of diesel on the top of the injector pump and of course, a more efficient start. The engine runs fine once started. The reason for this thread is that I could start throwing a couple hundred quid here and there which instead could be better off being spent on the whole lot being dealt with.

    Bmc overhaul review

    What do BMC perform like after being refurbished. I'm thinking of having mine done but Im not sure what to expect. Should I expect a leak free engine that starts on its first compression or am i dreaming?
  14. Canal and river trust say that there is a sunken boat on the visitor moorings. This was dated 27 March. Is it still there?
  15. Are they to stop the front doors from rotting? I wish someone could fit me some steel front doors then I'd get rid of my cratch.

    webasto Exhaust

    Hi. Its a new set up and the evidence of smoke is no more, however I am just slightly concerned about the invisible noxious gases that will seep out through the path of least resistance, ie this drain on the official webasto silencer. Only want to cover my tracks, do it right and obviously live on a safe boat. Hopefully this thread might highlight to other users of webasto and other heaters of this small hole manufactured into the exhaust so that they can be aware and keep themselves that extra bit safer.

    webasto Exhaust

    Yes, I mean the silencer. Its not a air heater either. The exhaust pipe enters at 3oclock and exits at 3oclock. The small drain hole is about 4,5, 6ish mm at the 6 o'clock position. are you saying that there is a tube u can fit to this, which would then reduce the slight smoke mist from this hole or are you saying that you can buy the silencers without the drain hole?.. Any recommendation of where or any pictures would be appreciated,

    webasto Exhaust

    My new webasto has come with an exhaust with an extra hole for presumably condensation drain. Some of the exhaust smoke comes straight out of here and escapes into the engine bay. Is there an alternative or do we all need to just live with this? Thanks in advance.
  19. Does anyone know where the 2 blue wires going through the relay go to? Thanks for any much needed help!
  20. What hole cutters a good enough for the odd hole or two in the hull. My families washing machine outlet is connected to the other drain on the bit between the sink and the drainernot the overflow). So I might offer to change this for them. No swan neck either but a stinky smell sometimea when the washer is on
  21. Thanks tim. Guess I Should had looked on cart site first
  22. Does this canal require canal licence or is it covered by rivers only

    Diesel Heater

    I've bought a webasto heater for a 50 ft trad and was wondering what is the best place to lacate it so, Where is your webasto, eberspacher, mikuni, hurricane located? Thanks
  24. Bought mine online 2 weeks ago and after at least one phone call a day explaining my situation, I still dont have the option to download my licence. Dont know why I bother wasting my time. Press 1 for the licencing team, when someome answers, they ask for your details, they then trie for almost 5 seconds to pass you through before offering a call back which doesnt happen. Ill try again tomorrow
