  1. Cheers all. Need to sort that then.
  2. Hi all, is it still necessary to keep the diesel tank full if treating with Marine 16 or similar? Always seems odd to me that it's advised to not keep diesel got too long then fill up before stopping for the Winter Cheers, Brian
  3. Can't get to mine for photos but it's a 33ft and has 4 berths in two doubles, both need to be made up and is a real pain even for a few weeks holiday. Maybe you can handle that a bit more than me but a permanent bed is an absolute must have for next boat.
  4. Cheers all, learnt a lot there, should've said, I'm going upriver on the Thames near Reading (typing and steering and making sure my phone doesnt end up going in) but i was only comparing myself with other narrowboats. After getting the app I've found I'm doing around 3.5mph at 1700 and around 4 at 1900/2000. Could be slightly underpowered/propped but will look into that. Will also examine it at high revs when nearer home next week. Thanks again!
  5. Cheers all, will follow those things up.
  6. Cheers all, thought it might be a bit of a vague question, I'm going just slower than tow path walkers and the engine seems comfortable enough.
  7. Hi all, got a question about revs,I cruise at around 2000 but everyone passes me, is it normal to regularly go above this? I've got a Vetus 3.10 on a 33ft narrow boat. many thanks for any advice.
  8. Cheers all, was in danger of putting it back upside down there! That description of the two holes makes perfect sense now. Brian
  9. Hi all, stupidly took out a filter to replace and failed to note which way up it was! am assuming the 'Baldwin Filters' side should be facing downwards (see photo) as the opening on the other side seems to match up to the hole on the filter fitting? Hope this is clear enough - only got these to photos with me at the moment (they also got a bit squashed whilst uploading) Many thanks for any help. Cheers, Brian
  10. Cheers, will give that a try before I do anything else.
  11. Cheers, can't see a float switch, if there is one it's in a plastic casing (it's a Rule-mate 500) doesn't look blocked up. Will look at other options.
  12. Hi all, bilge pump working ok on the switch but not coming on automatically, anything obvious going on there? Gave it a quick clean but it still only kicks in for a second on auto then stops. Cheers, Brian
  13. Just had one on Saturday, took around an hour and 15 minutes but my previous certificate didn't have the appliances listed so that may be why it took a bit longer.
  14. Hi all, the one that's moored around Kingston doesn't have a name on the side just 'Grebe Canal Cruises' with Pitstone Wharf underneath (that was the side I could see anyway - I was going past in a kayak!) otherwise, exactly like Wild Thyme above) Cheers
