  1. I was trying not to remember those days over 20 years ago now
  2. Well there are only just over 25,000 members
  3. Before I owned a boat so over 22 years ago I can remember 3 big BW chaps going down the towpath to have a word with a chap who didn't have a licence, that was the N Oxford. They weren't going to duff him up, it was so they weren't on the receiving end
  4. This is how my mate does it, uses his Zoe as a local run about but when he goes to visit family in France or Manchester its the diesel Skoda
  5. This is 4M long Net Curtain Wire White Window Voile Cord Cable FREE HOOKS & EYES Choose Lengths | eBay
  6. I have done similar but in my case the pump is designed for a higher pressure than my system so hopefully the pump will last a bit longer. I think the lowest my pump would switch was 4 barr but I run between about 1.5 and 2 Barr
  7. If it drops to 12.5 volts at the battery it WILL be lower at the pump
  8. Regional directors | Canal & River Trust (canalrivertrust.org.uk) if its up to date
  9. I am guessing there are about 500 rivets in that cabin
  10. I had very similar, we didn't run a night shift and due to an unfortunate happening the communication with Bacton Terminal. As they wanted us in the early hours of the morning they contacted the standby vessel. they in turn put a man on the spider deck who worked his way up to deck level, found the door into the accommodation, came up the stairs and threw my bedroom door open. so I am laying in bed in a dark room and this seaman in all his gear is standing in the doorway silhouetted by the light in the corridor. Not the best thing for the blood pressure.
  11. Thats what I was thinking, a pull through, maybe a length or expanding curtain wire
  12. I may have asked this before, but where you the bugger who knocked me out of bed in the middle of the night laying anchors in the Leman Field?
