  1. I agree with you all the way up to here, (quoted above) Ask 15 disabled boaters on what could help with their boating experiences and you will get at lest 10 different answers, but one of those answers wont be I want to stay at home where it is safe and watch soap operas on TV., The last thing they want to hear is, "you shouldn't be boating" and as the carer of a wife with MS, who has been in a wheelchair for over 20 years, we have heard it often. We have even been reported to the marina authorities, and been banned from the pontoon at a sailing club. You could also say disabled people shouldn't be in cars because they might be killed in a vehicle fire if they can't get out the car quickly enough. It's probably more dangerous for an able bodied person to drive a car than it is for a disabled person to be on a boat.
  2. exactly, so no way of saying the helmet saved him.
  3. Had you not been wearing your helmet Your head would have been an inch lower and you would not have hit the brick, Classic case of the helmet causing the accident.
  4. Small wheeled folding bikes will always be a lot slower an twice as uncomfortable than full sized bikes, but great for convenience. And much better than lugging gas, shopping or petrol on your back, Mine is a Compass, 18" wheels, alloy frame, hub gears, love it.
  5. Keep an eye on the oil level and viscosity, diesel in the oil is not a good thing.
  6. And they couldn't identify mistletoe and foxglove from a picture
  7. A lucky escape for the YBW Forum
  8. On some radios there are several "sub channels" so I am on channel 8 sub channel 22 , extremely unlikely to find anybody else on it given the range. when just using the 1-8 you often pick up other peoples conversations.
  9. At the moment I think it is 8.22, Why?
  10. I have had a similar problem to this, No end of carb cleaning seemed to get it to start better, but I was never convinced it was doing anything, V strangely the problem seems to have disappeared but reappeared on another engine. Both mariner/mercury engines 8 and 15 hp. I had suspected crap in the fuel tank clogging the fuel tank filter, but have nothing to back this up.
  11. Great looking boat there...
