    Cannabis oil, should it be available on prescription?

    Well they have two Wallops in Hampshire (Middle and Nether) 😁😆

    Water Blasting

    No experience of water blasting, but CO2 blasting (beads of dry ice) works well as the beads melt and evaporate, leaving only the paint residue behind. No idea of cost though.

    I wonder why developing societies chose to make laws then? 🤔

    Boat name: Punning assistance required.

    Just seen a boat go past my mooring called Dick Terrapin 😂 Wouldn't really have noticed him (I was browsing the forum) but he used his bow thruster to navigate through the bridge on a straight bit of canal. This is the second time in less than a week I have seen using a bow thruster to navigate in a straight line 😭😭😭. On Sunday as I was coming up the two Glascote Locks a replica Small Northwich was using his to steer between the two locks 😭😭😭

    RIP Laurence. I never met you but have enjoyed many of your DVD's and posts on here.

    Indeed, we once bought two kittens which my wife names "Bubble" and "Squeak". They never got lost together, and I felt a right fool calling out into the night "Bubble, Bubble" or even worse "Squeak, Squeak" 😣

    Deweeding tool - where can I get one?

    I find things pick me rather than the other way round 😆

    River Nene electrified (Guillotine) locks

    Perhaps sirweste originates from the Fens? 😆

    Deweeding tool - where can I get one?

    I have yet to find anything round a prop that bolt cutters, a hacksaw and a pruning knife haven't been able to get off (used singly or in combination).

    Vicrton Phoenix MultiPlus compact Problem

    Yes the battery will not quite get fully charged during the winter and might begin to sulphate. However, as the charger will get the battery almost fully charged, I don't think that the sulphation would harden to the point of being irreversible, so a good equalisation charge in the spring would probably restore the majority of the lost capacity.

    Monochrome emojis

    The test emoji in the above posthe is yellow. Perhaps you are suffering from intermittent colour blindness? 😆
  12. Indeed, the yeast produces CO2 and alcohol as it eats the sugar.
  13. Easily resolved at most venues by charging for attendance rather than parking, but the Braunston show is at a very public location. Would charity collection boxes along the towpath raise more money?

    Vicrton Phoenix MultiPlus compact Problem

    Lead acid batteries need the charge voltage lowered at higher temperatures and raised at lower temperatures. The attached chart shows the amount required for various voltage batteries. However if your boat is left unused on a landline, then the ambient temperature will level out at various heights, for example the temperature at the waterline will be the same along the length of the boat. Are your batteries and their charger at the same height? Obviously this will not be the case if the boat is heated though.

    Beta 43 ignition switch problem

    I only use the glow plugs when the weather is really cold (well below freezing). A Beta 43 will start within a couple of seconds of cranking without them.
