  1. Maybe i should have waited until I can get some of this - with sunglasses!! 'Whitest ever' paint reflects 98% of sunlight - BBC News
  2. Ah, the Bitcoin capital of the world!
  3. OK, getting close to this. We're booked in a single tunnel at Calcutt last week of April. Temps look to be ~15%c during day going down to about 7%c at night. I think its a poly tunnel, but if its not i was thinking is it an idea to take her out into full sunshine first thing to warm up each day...? Still undecided on finish for the roof. It'll be rollered on and i'm thinking not to lay off so the whole roof is 'stippled' to aid grip -probably laying off along the gutter areas to aid drainage? The paint is Donegal Green international to go over the same colour roof. Ha
  4. I measured ours the other day, 6ft 7" in the centre going to 6ft 3" at the sides - Elton Moss boat....
  5. are they walking on the ceiling?

  7. With the prices and the possible wait times might be an idea to watch and maybe consider doing it yourself?? (1) John Barnard Ltd. - YouTube

  9. Excellent idea.... might try that with a-ha if their concert ever goes ahead! We love cruising in and around Birmingham - the most interesting place on the canal network (that we have visited!)....
  10. thanks, yes with the recommendations above i've ordered some 10mm copper pipe with some flexible host to siphon into a 5litre clear container i have....
  11. Cheers Tony. Will get a longer copper pipe so i can sweep around a bit... as ever thank you for your valued advice.
  12. Thanks for all the replies. Been looking about the house today and have some 18mm steel tube I can use although not as long as I'd like. Is it ok to have just enough to reach the bottom of the tank or have people needed to 'search about' in the tank when siphoning? I thought if it just stays in one place then eventually it would pickup all the water (and bits also being 18mm wide) - I'd cut castle shapes or an angle in the bottom of the pipe so it sits flush to the tank floor its still effective... does that make sense??
  13. Is cruising counted as disturbing the nest? She may like the change of scenery?
  14. Interesting.. I've never had an issue with fuel as yet, so do people have a pump generally as a precaution and use regularly?
  15. Hi, just seen a vlog where the user smeared cream onto a stick and put it into the diesel tank. It turns red if water is present. Does anyone know what this is called - be great to check mine out.... thanks rob
