  1. To be fair for your £5 at Bosworth you do get use of the boaters lounge, free wi fi , use of showers, elsan and you buy tokens to use laundry facilities. There is also a small shop with a good selection of basics.
  2. Moored today on the Macclesfield visitor moorings... opposite what was last year a building site..... this year 62 brand new 'retirement' apartments... Honest Sir we did not know it was the official opening do when we lit a fire... they through open the double bi fold access to the beautiful Macclesfield canal doors to let the lady Mayoress out to cut the official ribbon just as our fire gave the first signs of life.. The more we panicked the worst it got but to be fair they carried on and I am sure the photos will look atmospheric! Then we sat back to 'enjoy' party.... lady in blue cardy kept trying to escape and they seemed to keep pushing her back into chair... 2 seconds she'd be up again ... then it became obvious ... she was not trying to escape ...she just wanted to get at the buffet and it wasn't 'officially' open yet.... Another new resident was already marked as the neighbour to avoid ... dressed in jumper and trainers he was helping himself to the champagne at an alarming rate ... eventually stood alone with one glass in each hand.... I couldn't find the purchase price of these things but he service fee was around 600 per month and when you finally departed this world they charged you for redecorating ... Told daughter it looked very nice and tongue in cheek told her I was thinking of buying... blind panic on her part... no no no mum .. we will look after you... I am going to convert attic... but how will I get down from said attic... get down ??? She says .... no no we are not bothered about you getting down , we just don't want to waste our inheritance on a care home... xx
  3. AM trim did such a good a job on our repair... it was only meant to 'makedo' for one more winter but thanks to them its still in use
  4. Anybody said fake grass on roofs or decks
  5. Yes Tony friend checked it all with him and seal was all intact and no grease where it shouldn't be. He was convinced that it was just a case of telling me the wrong info by confusing boats but he'd already said he would cover all costs if he had made any mistake. I
  6. Sorry pressed wrong button..don't know match point...he has cleaned all the bay and I will check every time I stop. He couldn't see any cause but time will tell
  7. Photo as promised... the muck below prop wasn't there until this incident and can only be described as like the dregs at the bottom of a chip pan! The boat is going into their dry dock tomorrow and I am taking a friend with me for guidance. Will report back
  8. As promised an update...Breath....all ok. As he looked in engine bay he realised he'd been confusing it with another boat... He couldn't explain the smoke and debris but cleaned the engine bay out and we are going to monitor over next couple of days. He showed me the blue silicon in the seal so I felt much calmer. He asked to look at original invoice and compared with his notes I had been charged for packing stern gland instead of silicon in seal. He refund me the 40 plus vat ...Apologised again and then gave me the bad news that I needed new engine mounts, Happy with how they dealt with everything and whilst we haven't solved the riddle of the smoke I have promised to check bay everytime I've run the engine and report back to him. Thanks for all your help it was very much appreciated.

  11. Thanks blizzard and Dor ...tried to down load photo but internet signal playing up....Will try again later.
  12. Well thanks to all of you for advice and info. Rang the boatyard. They had repacked with grease and rope? Apologised and asked me to bring the boat back in and they would sort out and correct any damage. Any advice on what i should be asking them to do...will it need new seal or can he repair/degrease the old one. Thanks again
  13. I can remember doing "homework" on this type of seal because it was developed for the boats in the Netherlands where the seal was underwater and I worried because the seal was not so on our British n arrowboats... but the main question now is ... if check with boatyard and find out they have repacked as in traditional stern gland..? What do i ask them to do.. ps thanks again for all your advice...
  14. 40.00 .. invoice says " check stern gland and 're pack"... actually said to me "we repacked stern gland because you had no grease in ..what so ever"
  15. It's a vetus KWB series with vetus gland..and R&D coupling. I know all the other boatyard have used silicon grease because I must have 3 half empty tubes that I keep forgetting to leave out for engineers. Will it have done any harm and should I go back and ask them to do what to rectify? I have attached a photo of front of instruction booklet. Hope this helps. Many thanks Ann
