  1. We are doing a refurb on a property, I tend to do the simple leccy stuff, so was wiring in a new socket for the cooker and hood, chatting to the guys as you do. Asked all if any need mains for 15 mins, nope, so I turned of the sockets at the distribution box, back to wiring, got whapped, cooker has a separate circuit switch, and, I bloody know that!!!

  4. I have used this stud extractor many times in vintage vehicle, probably a 70% success rate, much easier than drilling and re-tapping. Agree with Loddon, soak stud with releasing agent for at least 12hrs before you try remving. https://www.amazon.co.uk/Remover-Extractor-Puller-Mechanic-Vehicle/dp/B07B3S1CJN/ref=asc_df_B07B3S1CJN/?tag=bingshoppinga-21&linkCode=df0&hvadid=&hvpos=&hvnetw=o&hvrand=&hvpone=&hvptwo=&hvqmt=e&hvdev=c&hvdvcmdl=&hvlocint=&hvlocphy=&hvtargid=pla-4584413740120217&psc=1

  6. Perhapse take a look at North Kilworth Marina near Market Harborough. It is a relativity new marina, good facilities, set in the country side and the town has direct rail inks into London, the North. I have moored there since October 2019 and like it.
  7. Agree with Nick's post, would add, buy spares of high failure items, belts, fuses, water pump. Keep spare service items on board, and if you have any real concerns, get a mechanic to service boat before you cruise. Prevention is better than etc...
  8. Full engine service done today on Isuzu 42, TBO it isn't really much of problem, 5 year with the boat and I do it every year. Always feel satisfied when it's done, and my back isn't causing me grief this year. off for a two week trip tomorrow happy days.
  9. Many thanks, definitely up for fish and chips run. Many thanks for responding,
  10. Perfect, many thanks for taking the time to respond
  11. Mornin all, We are planning a short boat trip next week, we moor at North Kilworth and have four days free, moved boat onto GU late last year. I like the idea of taking the boat through Foxtons locks and taking a right into Market Harborough. I understand there are 48 hour VM's at the Marina. Interested in any feedback on this short stretch of the canal and experiences on these moorings. Many thanks.
  12. I can assure you from your comments and attitude you are nobodies MATE on this forum, I suggest you try and find another forum to hang out . I hope you get your boat problem and attitude sorted
  13. Based on my BSS survey experience last December, I totally agree with Alan's' response, I wasn't present at the inspection, the surveyor recorded 7 failures, 4 of which was because he wasn't familiar with boat and couldn't find things. 2 of the remaining issues we discussed and he withdrew the failures. Lesson learned!
  14. Yep, it is. I live in Slowit, and walk the Towpath most evenings, mostly keep to the ridge. Towpath, and Spath Res, in hot days is Crazy busy.
  15. Hi all, C&RT have started the dredging operation on the Hudds Narrow today, I believe they are doing the whole of the canal, possibly a couple of weeks work, guy wasn't sure. Standedge Tunnel could be interesting. TBO, I am not sure you would get a boat up between Slaithwaite and Marsden due to build up of silt, I would not be rushing to get up until the work is finished. Have fun
