  3. Or into the space under a tight fitting cratch cover
  4. I drain everything including the calorifier, not always easy on some boats.
  5. Well I guess that's another new member well pissed off because some didn't like their first posting. I am surprised anyone joins if they lurk a bit first and see how new members get treated
  6. Good for you, You have a bag full but are happy to go the extra mile to collect a few more. I wish you every success
  7. Didn't most motors have a thing called a butty obscuring the tunnel bands from astern?
  8. Wasn't that something to do with joint funding? Now the signs they are fitting today 50 yards before the winding hole telling you there is one,
  9. We use to use deionised water on out generators but they ran vented cooling systems so often required topping up

I was hoping things would have changed more with the latest chairman.

  15. It may help if you post a photo of what you are trying to modify we have gone from outboard to wide beam. Lets see what is already there
  16. Many years ago I went to a Stow Hill open day and there was a boat there with a similar back end, you sort if climbed onto a platform and then shimmied to the rear hatch with about 3ft 6 in head room
  17. Why do a ring, just out and back, you will probably enjoy it more
  18. As will be the Folly from what I have read on Facebook
  19. I didn't realised you peeked in when we were in Leeds
