  1. When we had a share in a shareboat, we stayed at Gayton for a couple of years. They were one of the better bases we stayed at from an engineering point of view and unusually for a shareboat, allocated us a dedicated berth on a pontoon. The marina is a bit windy and the reverse to the pontoon certainly sharpened my reversing skills ABC also gave each shareholder a discount card for use in any ABC marina. In my experience of shareboating (1992-2013), it is better to use a marina with a hire fleet, because they understand the need to turnaround (including quick repairs) quickly. Twice in my time we stayed at marinas without hire fleets and both times there were several occasions where the boat was not ready on time due to the lack of urgency getting the boat turned around.

  6. Hi Nick and welcome. We briefly met at Blue Lias (now Stockton Top) marina when you serviced the engine on my first Ownerships shareboat, which had a Mitsubishi 1.4 engine supplied by you.
  7. An alternative to using creosote to preserve bow fenders behind a tyre wrap is to use polypropylene fenders. 😁
  8. Hadn't heard of global dimming before. It obviously explains the increase in idiots over the last 30 years or so. 😁 You might have to use the load area for the engine and store your tools and materials under the bonnet... 😁🤣
  9. Yes that is a different one to the one my father had. The cover was a line drawing of Albert poking Wallace with a stick with an 'orses 'ead 'andle on it.
  10. Is the book a soft cover with the last monologue about elephants? If so my Father had that one.
  11. I first heard it recited by my Father in a broad Lancashire accent. Years later I bought a CD of Stanley Holloway monologues, recited by the man himself. I was very disappointed to hear them recited in a southern accent. 😣
  12. Three ha'pence a foot, My favourite Stanley Holloway monologue.
  13. Yes, but didn't realise they originated from Bury (and I was born in Lancashire).
