  1. We bought a couple of extra B&Q cupboard doors to cannibalise so our carpenter could make a consistent job when he build the cupboards.
  2. Have a look in in B&Q they have solid wood doors, be careful of that dreaded word 'effect'!

  7. Looks like the boater had the front doors open going up the lock?
  8. We had a guy explaining about the lock, I don't think he was a volockie, I got the impression he was a helpful boater from the marina. He advised we should keep right back while the lock was being filled. I didn't get the impression he was trying to be 'clever' he was trying to be helpful. There are several locks along that stretch which are hairy.

    Chips

    Definitely wouldn't have a fat fryer on board. It's far too easy to be distracted. Make your own oven chips, just toss your chips in a plastic bag with a tablespoon of oil or melted dripping - then spread them out on an oven tray. When on shoreline; chips are made in an air-fryer. I phoned my husband at home once, distracting him from making chips. There was a horrible shout "**** the chip pan!" It was a horrible 10 minutes; waiting to hear that everything was under control! Kitchen was in a terrible mess, no real damage was done, but lessons were learnt.
  10. There's a space under the bridge there where kids, and some not-so-kids, looked to be doing drugs, amongst them were some youngsters who looked (to me anyway) vulnerable. It didn't look good as some of the group were aggressive, so I phoned the police. Police said they knew what was going on.... I couldn't do any more
  11. Seeing this thread is about engines and marinas. We had a problem this morning and needed help from RCR (what a really helpful guy who came to our rescue was!) A couple of services ago Wyns oil additive was added. We've been sitting in a marina for a month, and this morning we attempted to leave but the engine wouldn't turn over. After changing a couple of filters, the engine still wouldn't 'behave'. Skipping to the diagnosis.. the engine valves had became sticky with a loss of compression. It's been cold and damp, and we never bothered to kick over the engine during the month.
  12. The best Vlogger by far is David (Cruising the Cut). He's down to earth and very practical. There's always something to learn on his vids, and he's well worth watching.
