  1. Long story, but basically yes, and didn't fancy paying Gary Lineker's wages anymore, plus I found their news a bit bias...… been licence free for a while now and its refreshing! Just watch catchup services as and when...
  2. That would have been good to watch but I don't have a TV licence....
  3. Interestingly when I checked the dipstick it was always clear, but not when I changed it.....
  4. Thanks, will definately do this when I get back to the boat!
  5. Thanks for your speedy reply... so normally it would come out same sort of colour as the engine oil?
  6. Hi All I changed this today since I've no record when it was last done. The old oil was grey like - very different to the engine - is this usual? ta rob
  7. As a newbie am I right in thinking most canals would be ok here as they have overflows - assuming where they are overflowing is not flooded? Most notices seem to be of rivers...
  8. Hi Everyone We've got one of these on Water Lily: https://www.amazon.co.uk/gp/product/B07D9TBPPC/ref=ppx_yo_dt_b_asin_title_o00_s00?ie=UTF8&psc=1 We got this one as it we could use it immediately without fitting and we were new to the boat. Quick question, how do we know its actually working - can we do a diode test on the earth or similar??
  9. They are head strong aren't they! The local swans at Yelvertoft had lots of young this year and systematically took them round all the boats teaching them how to beg. They now go around in pairs looking intimidating, and knocking on the hatches!
  10. To say they did it - some mad Englishman surely will do this one day!?
  11. I know people have taken their narrowboats across to France in the past, but has anyone gone around the UK in one? I'm watching a YouTuber who is doing it in a tiny RIB at present and it got me thinking... (no, not for me, just curious!). What an adventure this would be, especially if it was a fleet of boats - utterly mad but so British!
  12. no gloves or even shoes in sight..... magic!
  13. True.. I forgot to also mention I have a couple of Blick cameras onboard that use the mifi to connect for when i'm not there so I can check for problems and monitor temperature.. they are quite handy as they alert me of temperature changes....
  14. bit harsh at night though... I could get head torches?
  15. The main benefit for me is the signal seemed much better with a mifi with an external aerial... plus the family can access Netflix when I go out (and take my phone)..
