  3. Last time I saw that cartoon I asked if the Facebook comments were about how to correctly wear a facemask ...
  4. Maybe if they had moved after the event finished there would have been less of a problem ... Had they been moored there a week or more before the event too?
  5. Halifax beer festival next weekend if you're still there ...
  6. Train her up, Jim. It worked well for Steve Royle ...
  7. Move the boat then. If you're still where you were last time, you can pootle around three different "functional locations" without using a lock, and four if you go back down the previous one. I was talking to a chap at Hebden yesterday who has just had an overstay notice, so it seems they are active over that way at the moment. They'll be coming for @dmr next ...
  8. Yes. An experienced surveyor uses the sounding hammer to decide which areas need more detailed checking with the ultrasound tester. Idiots just bash the hull hard in random places to see if it makes a big hole ...
  9. A headtorch and a whistle on a lanyard if your buoyancy aid doesn't have one already. See the definition I posted above. 3(a) The word “vessel” includes every description of water craft, including non-displacement craft, WIG craft and seaplanes, used or capable of being used as a means of transportation on water. I think you're just trying to be awkward now, so I'm out.
  10. Yes. A torch is sufficient though. 25.d.(ii) A vessel under oars may exhibit the lights prescribed in this Rule for sailing vessels, but if she does not, she shall have ready at hand an electric torch or lighted lantern showing a white light which shall be exhibited in sufficient time to prevent collision.
  11. Which of the rules do you think they don't conform to? They certainly are covered by the definitions: 1(a) These Rules shall apply to all vessels upon the high seas and in all waters connected therewith navigable by seagoing vessels. 3(a) The word “vessel” includes every description of water craft, including non-displacement craft, WIG craft and seaplanes, used or capable of being used as a means of transportation on water. https://assets.publishing.service.gov.uk/government/uploads/system/uploads/attachment_data/file/281965/msn1781.pdf
  12. Sea Kayaks are usually narrower than 7 feet and typically draw a few inches ...
  13. Nah, the Daly bluetooth module is known to be flaky. I did mention that I'd prefer the hardwired version for monitoring and control, and Sterling said "Watch this space ..." Yeah that. The issue is that I didn't want to invalidate the remaining four-and-a-half year warranty by cutting the casing open to get to it!

  15. Just a warning that if you don't connect the Sterling batteries via a battery-to-battery charger the 5 year warranty is invalidated. It'll probably work fine, but you "pays your money and takes your chances." In related news they are about to have a very good 150Ah one going cheap on their clearance section - it was mine and the Bluetooth module died, so they simply replaced the battery with a brand new one under the warranty. The cells are fine and the BMS works fine, you just can't monitor it over Bluetooth.
  16. I like that bridge. A couple of feet of concrete and steel rising vertically out of the road prevent most drivers trying to drive through the barriers!

  20. The usual advice of heating up rusty metal with a blowtorch and hitting it with two sledgehammers might not be the best idea in this particular case ...

  23. One of the other Rufford Branch locks, surely. I've been through Tarleton lock on the level with all the gates open! Admittedly the time and tide need to be correct but it is possible fairly often.
