    If they are labcraft lights they now do led equivalents. I got mine from there agent Dun-Bri. They may have a Dun-Bri near you if not phone labcraft and ask who stocks them closest to you. Hope it helps.

    Battery Fault

    So what was the answer to the question ( why was the red light on )
  6. Billy Boy

    Any idea what these are?

    They are posts to fix tie rods to, to hold concrete upright.

    BSS fail?

    I've always found it best not to argue with safety examiners even if I don't agree. At the end of the day there not the one who needs BSS certificate. A nice cup of tea (how do you like it, always asked.) And a slice of cake when they arrive I think is best .

    Sealing a wooden topped roof?

    When I first acquired my boat the super was the same wood with thin sheet cladding and leaked like a cullinder, I stripped off cladding repaired and treated wood put cladding back stuck down with sicaflex, New joint strips stuck down with sicaflex lots of it, I used handrails and wedges to force cladding down. NO SCREWS. It fixed the problem until I could afford a new steel super.

    Narrowboat Insurance

    I'm with HN Johnson, there not to bad. Most will only pay out the minimum they have to,, the same as all insurance providers.
  12. As Bizz says nearest marina to you, they have a variety and not overly priced . I use a jabsco parmax 4. It depends on what your setup with outlets are if you have an accumulator. If what you've got works with no trouble. Then just a straight swap.

    Grounded not far from selbycanal

    Yes, used a few times, once on boat took a long time but it works. That saying there may not be any thing to tie round.

    If you can get to a tree behind you with a rope tie one end to boat go round tree back to boat tiller bar between rope and wind it, makeshift winch. I can't think of what you call it.
