    Hi Tim, I have a surplus to requirements Jabasco Pro max 2.9 pump installed for around two months, I changed to vetus pump and spare, primarily because the vetus is quieter. PM me If you are interested in a spare pump. Cheers, Jon

    Narrowboat at sea adventure

    Wouldn't surprise me if he was aiming for the skipper!
  4. But it looks like it so can! just been reading Maplin, one of my favourite shops for all things electrical, that I can't remember the name of, but they can, are fighting to hold off going into administration. I think a petition needs to be raised and a march on No 10 organised, why do we need to save financial institutions if there is nowhere to spend your money Can we send a hat around and save the day,

    Sorry to disagree with you Bee, but I do have the St Kilda T-Shirt, trust me, they rock and roll like a 60's band.

    Narrowboat at sea adventure

    The services used to operate a Landing Craft Logistic (LCT) between North Uist and St Kilda, which is 52 nautical miles NW of Stornoway heading out to Iceland. An LCT is a flat-bottomed boat, i believe around 200 tons. The cruise takes around 8 hours. they use an LCT because the ship has to beach land, no jetty on the Island. On many occasions the seas are too high which means the LCT can beach and has to either standoff, so this is a flat bottom boat, in the Irish Sea, in storms, or return to Uist, You'd think that having jettisoned the contents of gut on outbound trip the return trip couldn't really get any worse, you would, in fact, be so very wrong, stuff of nightmares. So to conclude, based on my previous experience, would I take my NB on a journey on lumpy waters, not all the time I have a hole in my arse.

    Brotherly Love?

    Read the post, police called, informed. Idgit moored up and returned to carry on aggressive confrontation. This is in no way acceptable in any social environment and totally not to be tolerated on the CUT. Nobody has the right to drop this attitude on others, especially if the action of the offender is being an arse.

    Which Computer anti Virus programme?

    Bullgaurd is pretty solid and provides backup functionality, for the directories/folders/files you designate, as stated, can be used on up to 3 systems. Buy from Amazon @ £18 for an annual licence and updated the licence key number on your BullGuard account. Job done,

    Outboard not starting

    Outboard not starting

    Do you have a magnetic drain plug or a magnetic probe you can fish the washer out with, probe available from any motor factors or DIY store? I would try every option to fish it out before I ran the engine, very high change the washer will cause a major engine, gearbox failure Me, I couldn't live with that, but hey...

    four counties

    We have just finished the Four Counties Ring, 14 days, would loved to have spent longer. Just loved it, loads to see, Wedgwood Museum, Shugborough Hall, great market towns every other day. Heart Break Hill is just a day to feel like a hero and perfect excuse/ justification/ reward for supping pints of rehydrating liquids! Stoke is a history lesson, history not always inspirational, Westport Lake moorings on the out skirts of Stoke is great overnight moorings. Harecastle Tunnel box needs ticking IMO. Most of the folks we met were great, helpful when we/they though we needed it ! The whole Shroppie experience, views amazing, not overly busy, has water, no trouble with locks, whats not to like! Just go for it, and enjoy, make time your friend.
