  1. Thanks Jen, that is what I was thinking. I will probably put another coat on after assembling as I will do the screwheads as well how long does silicone last in this use?
  2. Whilst my boat is being painted I have taken the opportunity to clean and incralac all the brass work. My portholes are the type with a single piece of glass that drops back and can be lifted out. I have removed the drop back (four screws) to clean thoroughly. There was a white flexible compound between the two parts which I don't recognise, it only acted as a seal and didn't stick the two parts together. It appeared to have come out of a tube when applied. Has anyone any experience of the best thing to use? Also is it best to incralac the two parts then assemble or incralac after putting
  3. CRT are hoping this will be open by Easter
  4. Snap surveys comes up with a genuine looking website claiming the BBC and NHS among their clients
  5. Good evening , just had an email asking me to take part in a CRT survey from Janet Johnson, survey@wh.snapsurveys.net. with the following text :- Knowing what boaters think about the Canal & River Trust is very important to us, and we would therefore ask you to take part in our Annual Survey by clicking on the following link: Take Part Many thanks I'm suspicious that this is a scam as nothing official logo wise or anything within unlike other crt surveys I have received and completed. Has anyone else received the same and is it genuine?
  6. Had a quote from Kings Bromley, very different to others. Extras based on usage for elsan and lighting around berths/walkways. Could have been tempted if I had a rebate on the lighting and used a torch🤔
  7. Permanently fixing the top /table mount would be too much of a hazard I think. I could see the wife and I turning our ankles when boarding and as for the greyhound I am sure he would break every leg and probably more than once! this is similar to my original thought but to prevent the above would be removed when not in use. I had envisaged a slatted deck covering which would remain in place all the time and erect the table when needed. We tend to eat in the well deck whenever the weather is good enough. I have not mentioned this to the boat painter as he is adamant that nothing should
  8. I currently have a hinged table mounted in the well deck which when not used hangs down so I still get maximum light through the cratch glass. The downside is that it makes it awkward to use the front storage locker. I am thinking of using an existing small dinette table instead which will require a new shorter desmo leg and floor socket. I don't want to cut a hole for the socket through the well deck floor because that would be a significant water ingress into the boat if a seal failed. I am thinking of building a hard wood floor, which I could fit the socket into, to lay on the floor of
  9. Loved the conservatory when we were moored opposite a couple of months ago. Looks really nice inside but have you watched the video? Bit of an own goal by the estate agent, you can hardly hear him over the traffic noise
  10. This post cannot be displayed because it is in a forum which requires at least 10 posts to view.
  11. Provided I clean the pan thoroughly before relighting I have a lovely blue flame. If I don't it either takes several attempts to light or will burn yellow. I do light with a small cube of fire lighter, about the size of my little finger nail, so it may be the residue of that which causes the problem.
  12. Yes it is a waste but..... Our 57ft boat came with two heating systems, the bubble and a mikuni running radiators. The mikuni is great if not too cold and you want a short blast but uses electric to run and not the most efficient. The bubble is a continuous even heat which is capable of warming through the length of the boat to ensure I don't get too chilled on the tiller, it's about 10 feet from the front doors. It is not as easy as a solid fuel stove to let out and relight due to having to thoroughly clean it between. Therefore once cold enough to light it, it tends to stay alight. When
  13. Our Bubble drip feed stove hasbeen running on minimum for several weeks now. We have the front doors open all the time along with windows, Houdini and side hatch top hatches to stop the RSPCA prosecuting us for cooking the dog. Full tank to fultank for the last 7 days used 29litres at 69 p/litre (coutesy of Turners) so £20.30 for a weeks heating.
  14. Thank you for the help. Now fixed, I was going to blame the new style of cassette as I had never had this problem previously.
