  1. No use confusing us with science, it's working now, that's good enough for us πŸ™‚ Thank you Stephen.
  2. Welcome along. Personally, 8 years ago when I bought my first boat, I had nothing. The boat came with everything I needed and as I used it, I found plenty of other things that I wanted. So, start looking around the mags, selling sites and Ebay and see what is available and get some idea of what would suit you.
  3. Is this any use? It's a drawing I did in the early stages of my build. and, the spec 40 foot Cruiser Stern Narrowboat Shell Specifications Steel work made from 10mm Base, 6mm Hull sides, 5mm Cabin, 4mm Roof. Stern Tube Fender Eyes Rear Sliding Hatch with rear Doors Integral Hand Rail Centre Roof Ring All Rubbing Bars 2” Wide, Welded Top AND Bottom Front Door’s Stainless barrel hinges all round Integral Gas Locker & Integral Diesel Tank Anodes Painted in High build Grey Zinc Base Primer 2 Pack Black on the Hull
  4. Sounds like you want a hybrid bike, this is the top of your budget https://www.halfords.com/bikes/hybrid-bikes/boardman-mtx-8.6-hybrid-bike---blue-528155.html If you're willing and able to buy 2nd hand, I'll be out on my bike in about 15 minutes, the bike I'll be riding is very similar to this https://www.ebay.co.uk/itm/2015-Giant-Rapid-Fluxx-3-Size-Medium/164175424053?hash=item26399e2a35:g:Mv4AAOSwJHhepaFZ Kevin
  5. Yep, that's the one, delete the bookmark, open up CWF, then bookmark the page again.
  6. The problem is, those who can't log in from bookmark won't know how to solve it because they can't get on the site to read this!! Catch 22!
  7. The past couple of days, CWF has not been working from bookmarks. This morning, I decided to do a search to see if there was a problem. I got to the FB page and noticed several people there saying the same thing. I've just tried again, still not working - it's the 'Home' page that I have bookmarked. Anyroadup, from the Google search, I decided to click on the General boating page, which then let me in to the site. I then clicked back to the home page, bookmarked it again, deleted the old page and am now up and running again. This is using Chrome browser and happened on both my Win 10 'puter and my Chromebook. There may be many others out there who haven't been able to get their CDF fix for the past couple of days. Kevin

  9. Fitted my new windows on a new shell with 15 x 3, but when I re-fitted old windows on Halcyon I used 6mm which helped take up the undulations in both the frames and the sides. The only problem I had was getting long enough rivets to compress the tape.

  11. Unfortunately you'll have to look through the early videos, he does a lot of building in his garage at home, then shows fitting on the boat. 3, 4, 5, 6, 7, 8 will get you started.
  12. Check out Colin's build https://www.youtube.com/channel/UCnT-VVQqid7A_ZaBkZb6_XA
  13. I've got a smartguage connected, added a 100W solar last year. I sometimes get E3 showing, which is saying that the voltage was too high, doesn't appear to adversely affect anything though.
  14. 12 of the finest (unintentional) double-entendres ever aired on TV and Radio, just read it on FB 1. Ted Walsh - Horse Racing Commentator – 'This is really a lovely horse. I once rode her mother.' 2. New Zealand Rugby Commentator – 'Andrew Mehrtens loves it when Daryl Gibson comes inside of him.' 3. Pat Glenn, weightlifting commentator – 'And this is Gregoriava from Bulgaria .. I saw her snatch this morning and it was amazing!' 4. Harry Carpenter at the Oxford-Cambridge boat race 1977 – 'Ah, isn't that nice.. The wife of the Cambridge President is kissing the Cox of the Oxford crew..' 5. US PGA Commentator – 'One of the reasons Arnie (Arnold Palmer) is playing so well is that, before each tee shot, his wife takes out his balls and kisses them ........ Oh my god !! What have I just said??' 6. Carenza Lewis about finding food in the Middle Ages on 'Time Team Live' said: 'You'd eat beaver if you could get it.' 7. A female news anchor who, the day after it was supposed to have snowed and didn't, turned to the weatherman and asked, 'So Bob, where's that eight inches you promised me last night?' Not only did HE have to leave the set, but half the crew did too, because they were laughing so hard! 8. Steve Ryder covering the US Masters: 'Ballesteros felt much better today after a 69 yesterday.' 9. Clair Frisby talking about a jumbo hot dog on Look North said: 'There's nothing like a big hot sausage inside you on a cold night like this. ' 10 Mike Hallett discussing missed snooker shots on Sky Sports: 'Stephen Hendry jumps on Steve Davis's misses every chance he gets.' 11. Michael Buerk on watching Philippa Forrester cuddle up to a male astronomer for warmth during BBC1's UK eclipse coverage remarked: 'They seem cold out there, they're rubbing each other and he's only come in his shorts.' 12. Ken Brown commentating on golfer Nick Faldo and his caddie Fanny Sunneson lining-up shots at the Scottish Open: 'Some weeks Nick likes to use Fanny, other weeks he prefers to do it by himself.'
  15. Should work fine, the old ones are certainly matched, so they should work fine. Just seen the reply from Matchpoint, I'm assuming you're talking about the RAM ?
