  7. As this is a 20 year old boat and I suspect it is the original exhaust system it is most likely well choked up. Perhaps it is time to get a nice new hospital silencer fitted
  8. Not me, honestly guv. driver tucked in a cabin whilst negotiating a bridge hole, that is cocky driving
  9. So it’s you that lurks in bridge holes then?
  10. New air filter around 6 weeks ago, will check it later anyway. Don’t think the prop is fouled but will take a look. No idea how to check if the silencer is coked up without removing the exhaust. I suspect that all bolts are going to be so tight they are more likely to break than undo. I’m not a mechanic so yes I probably Bly need a specialist. No soundproofing did replace the steel deck boards for buffalo board last year but I suspect there is more airflow now than before. That’s how I noticed it, having to give it full reverse for the boat hiding in a bridge hole
  11. I have noticed that my exhaust has started issuing billowing clouds of thick black smoke on high engine revs (1500 or so Rpm) this suggests poor air/fuel mix probably from blocked injectors. I know nothing about injector systems so will need to seek out professional help, so what I would like to know is how in-depth a job it is so I can get an idea of what a job like this should cost. Is it for example as simple an hour to remove an hour to clean and an hour to replace, in which case I would expect an estimate for half a days labour? Or is it going to be a lot more complicated? we are currently on the Leicester branch just above Crick and heading south towards Leighton Buzzard, there are plenty of marinas and small boat yards on this route, which one would be the best bet for this type of work? Will probably get a full service at the same time, is it feasible that all work would be done in a single day? Lister 4 cylinder replaced with an industrial block and with the top end from my original canal star. Thought I best add that bit before all the questions start 😁
  12. And there I was going around finding baggies on the towpath and hanging them up in a tree thinking the person responsible would be more likely to remember to collect it on their return if it was in a more prominent position, I feel such a fool now 🤪
  13. Pretty sure bunch isn’t the correct collective noun to describe fascists; though to be fair the most app one probably isn’t allowed in polite society
  14. Especially when used as an exclamation of mild surprise!
