  1. Isn’t the con with Ecover stuff that they use pretty much the same ingredients as the other products, just from a “sustainable” source? And obviously a complete lack of Flipper, honest.
  2. Sadly i found those from a similar shop early in the search, turns out they are for 19mm pole diameter so the rings themselves are actually 38mm outer diameter and 33mm internal
  3. Ha, mine is 16 and perfected the art of refusal a while ago
  4. Thanks, but those are plastic, pretty sure she wants metal/brass
  5. Right, after much searching, where the heck do you find small brass curtain rings with additional ring for hanging curtains on a fiddle rail? All the ones i’m turning up are either huge, have daft clips attached, or are just a ring on it’s own with no additional ring for the curtain hooks. Volunteered to find replacements thinking how hard could it be Regrets, i have a few…
  6. In my very early youth i thought the stretch of Calder & Hebble down at Cooper Bridge was called The Bloody Canal, as when playing with my cousins when visiting my Mum’s parents at Bradley we were always told to “keep off the railway lines and stay away from that bloody canal”

  9. @Alway Swilby Maxview Roam is the one i’ve seen for mobile internet, not cheap.
  10. On the old shareboat, a quick glance through the hatch and down the cabin to see how fast the fan was spinning told us if the stove needed more fuel. Can’t do this on new boat so no point getting a fan. Plus it saves me having to screw everything down so the mighty fan doesn’t blow it all down the boat

  12. Everyone knows that stove fans are ridiculously powerful and not a force to be trifled with. The recent increase in boat ownership, and by extension stove fan ownership, is now thought to be the real cause of global warming!

  15. Not anymore, some light-fingered gardener trousered it one night. It’s the pound after the winding hole in Slawit, so usually not bad (in HNC terms) for water.
  16. Isn’t it Loogabarooga to the Aussies?
  17. Its a little icon of a canoeist wearing a headtorch, which is as close as they can get to a headlamp i suppose
  18. One thing i notice with these signs, if a complete novice turns up in a their newly purchased boat they have no idea if it’s a both ways at once or one way at once tunnel. Obviously you could work this out from the first sign as it carries dimension information, but what if you’re not carrying the hubble telescope on board? Information signs should be as simple and clear as possible and assume you know nothing.
  19. Must be obscured by snow, just white boxes for me too
  20. A lot of the roads over the tops here are closed til Monday, M62 still open though. I nearly put a jumper on earlier, but decided against it as it was only -4
  21. When we had a throttle cable break it would still limp along like you were in tickover/minimum revs in both forward and reverse. Top tip for this time of year is tip a kettle of boiling water down the weed hatch before you go in with the hand, doesn’t last long but makes it less numbing for feeling whats there.
  22. What’s more concerning is the one called “Dreamthatcher” with a pic below of Maggie in the buff 🤢
