  1. Like I said in another thread - I never did get the one I bought to work despite the help form forum members. The fan blew cold air but fuel remained unburnt and dripped from the exhaust to form a puddle on the floor. I didn't get to the stage when I put it on the boat but I assume the BSS rules would have something to say about dripping diesel fuel. The seller of the "heater" on ebay would not respond at all but I got a full refund.
  2. Personally - the only bit of country file worth watching is any part presented by Elle Harrison 🤤
  3. Our local elsan and toilets have been open and in constant busy use throughout AND regularly cleaned by the CRT contractor.
  4. You have a fine sense of humour sir Alan. I suppose its just a decision to be made between whether life's just too short or a short may lessen life.
  5. No - I was trying (clumsily) to point out that the experienced and obviously knowledgeable electrical folk on here are not necessarily good at teaching, with liberal use of Initials that can mean more than one relevant thing. Now I need to know how to measure a "Pull off force". Believe me, if I could find a proper qualified canalboat electrician, I would have them do the work but how do you know what one looks like and where they are to be found? The electrical company that wired in the electric shore post certainly had no idea about boats or either version of the RCD.
  6. OK - that's for a RCD which (as I understand the differing advice to be found on a search of the forum) is to be found in a consumer unit from which my earth must go to the rather expensive Galvanic Isolator that has just arrived and which is fitted with steel studs, bolts and washers. And to add to my continuing confusion about how to bond an earth to the hull, other forum advice specifically states use of crimped joints rather than wind the wire around the stud under the washer! Then of course there is the advice to use grip washers to get a good connection to the hull and the con
  7. I have one of these (slightly cheaper on ebay) but before it gets fitted and I plug in to a shore line, I understand I need to have the electric circuit on board earthed to the hull. What is the best /proper / easiest way to do this please.
  8. Asking price £76k. Wonder what the house is worth?
  9. 20 years ago the BW plan was to make the whole area into a Heritage Centre. The Elsan was planned to be below the locks by the water point and they started to dig the trenches for the pipes. Unfortunately they didn't ask the owner of the land they were digging up and he invited them to leave immediately. Meanwhile they let the old office building as a cafe which was already open when they then plonked the Elsan where it is now, with the obvious clash of interests. In recent times the local canal heritage group to which I belong, proposed to CRT that they could place a multi service unit belo
  10. Isn't that a rather old photo? Not that the point isn't well made as just last week there were far more offending unattended boats moored right up to the lock on both sides..

  14. But don't moor at a lock-landing and particularly if you are leaving your boat there.
