  1. Magpie and I went with our parent on "Anker" and "Joanna" - I'll see if I've any 35mm film anywhere... On one occasion on leaving the boat Alan had all the deck boards up as I'd been playing with lego on the back deck and some of it had fallen down the (quite long) slot where the gear lever went... On another, Dad had turned the radio on in the car as we approached Atherstone. It was valve(!!) and hadn't warmed up and produced sound when we got to the boatyard so he didn't turn it off. Alan jump started the car for us to go home
  2. Better than some magazines where the next edition never happened... ever ...
  3. On the assumption that "harm" can be mental as well as physical, I could put an argument that not knowing whether an item which is not only expensive, but has great sentimental value as my second/holiday home, is safe and secure could cause harm? There are (as always) exceptions but some of these fit real life well; I'd worry less / suffer less mental harm if a trusted friend (or marina owner) contacted me "She's still afloat, i've checked the lines and the bilge and shore power is still on". I'd worry more / stress more if the marina was unmanned and floods were predicted.

  6. On the other hand, boats don't "notice" the extra weight of carrying an ICE when on battery or a B**** great battery when running on dino-fuel quite as much...

  10. so (roughly) a foot long for every inch rise... That could easily be a sixty foot ramp (each side) - no wonder it's expensive!
  11. I wonder what a reasonable incline is; it could be a LOT bigger!
