  1. Perhaps best they didn't, the horizon is already well on its way. 🙃

    UK Silly Village/Place Name Competition

    Sounds like a Tidy Weekender at Pontins in Prestatyn would have been more suitable for your needs. Well, there was music, drink and drugs. 3 out of 5 ain't bad.

    UK Silly Village/Place Name Competition

    Not really a village no, just a wooded area, or 'place' as the threads title allowed. According to Wikipedia it was originally named after Henry VII's special area, or at least that was my interpretation.
  4. It's not that sort of competition... yet.

    What have you read lately

    No idea. Maths was never my strong point, something to do with the failure of the education system.

    What have you read lately

    This Is Going To Hurt by Adam Kay which was funny and painful in equal measure. Outliers by Malcolm Caldwell, thoroughly interesting. Runaway by Peter May, which was the first fiction I've read in a long time, and made it to the end without struggling to get motivated to pick it back up. Currently half way through The Ten Types of Human by Dexter Dias, which is quite fascinating so far.

    Rule shower waste box

    Another vote for getting a Whale Gulper instead of the tray. Saves cleaning out the filter every few weeks or not realising it's blocked and filling up yer bilge. I got a bit overly annoyed with my float switch and it stopped working altogether, which sped up the Gulper buying process.
  9. Planned obsolescence is built into the design of just about every product in varying degrees. Any company nowadays that makes anything last too long will find themselves running out of money long before the ones that are essentially scamming the customers, and I doubt a fine that they can recoup in a couple of hours is going to dissuade them much.

    Dave Clarke boats anyone used?

    Catch us if you can.

    Boat length

    I measured mine several times last year whilst deciding whether to risk doing the 62ft sections of the Leeds and Liverpool. It worked out at about 63' 6" without fenders, measured from the tip of the bow to the tip of the extended rudder. I made the whole journey (Leeds to almost Liverpool, due to the breach) without any real issues, just meant I had to do all the locks diagonally and some without front and rear fenders. There's a couple of tight locks where the pounds are slightly shorter than the rest, you just have to be extra careful and do them slowly.

    PC gaming on a boat?

    I have a 3ish year old Asus gaming laptop which runs most things pretty smoothly. Obviously tweaking graphics settings helps in certain situations to keep things ticking along nicely, and a lot of things aren't really that noticeable once you're actually concentrating on playing rather than obsessing over the effects, but then I'm only a very casual, ocassional gamer. Cost me about £800 at the time, so I'm sure you could pick up something similar for a lot less now. I think it draws about 5-6A at through the inverter when it's having a workout.

    When do you run your engine?

    Whenever I need to within the permitted times, generally in one go rather than splitting it throughout the day. And so it never bothers me when other people chose to run theirs. There seems to be a lot of people lately with super sensitive hearing or a very low tolerance threshold.

    Probably about 10 minutes in total, I made a request for opinions on a situation I hadn't seen before. I received the opinions I asked for.
