  1. and if you fill up the boats at the bottom they can take the water back to the top and you don't need pumps at all
  2. or if y like words so much perhaps you could explain,clarify or otherwise elucidate the precise difference difference between points 2.3 and 2.4 of the list you so proudly cut and pasted in your previous post
  3. Yes DOH indeed because cutting and pasting tranches of legaleese ain't the way to get the support of anybody. No one can be bothered to read it let alone care about it so the CRT decided that a computer generated animation of a buzzy bee thingy might be a bit more accessible. As stated previously; love it / hate it, its still a fact. Maybe you could take y list of regulations, ordinances, directives, stipulations or whatever the f y callem and stick em on a church wall, or some other place that nobody goes anymore, bung a begging box underneath and watch the cash come rolling in
  4. to raise the awareness of the general public to the activities of the CRT. DOH
  5. and to return to the purpose of the advert
  6. That's my assumption too magic time is right. Look in the CRT's financial statement which, if you are a boat license payer and have given your e mail address you will have been sent a copy of, and you find that the CRT receives about 50 million quid a year from central government. This grant is due to end in roughly 10 years time when presumably the CRT will apply for further funding. They assume (almost certainly justifiably) that if the canal network is seen to benefit a broad section of the demographic as opposed to the 35000 or so boat license payers then they will get more money from government. This is what last years re-branding exercise is all about. Love it / hate it, its still a fact and one that should be remembered next time you are reading a pejorative post about inconsiderate cyclists, dog walkers, fishermen, hire boaters, runners, walkers and crawlers or any other group of the thousands of people who use the canals but don't own a boat. Vive la difference Don't live in the past God save the King
  7. thanks ditchcrawler too that looks like the same accumulator
  8. Cheers Tony. This is also a very desirable answer answer, Knob and valve exactly as described so i gave it a few with a bike pump. If it cuts in again I may even find a pump with a gauge and endeavor to find the specs. At least I dont have to try and find a pencil.
  9. My water pump comes on occasionally too. I've checked for a leak and found none and though it happens more when the hot water tank is hot (as previously mentioned) sometimes it happens anyway. Its been a long way down things things to do list for a good while now coz it never really bothers me but I appear to have stumbled across the cause of the problem. So that begs the question, How do you repressurize an accumulator? Obviously the desired answer is that you close one eye wave a pencil at it and say the magic word. The least desirable answer is you dismantle the entire water system, post it off to the Faro islands and use bottled water for 6 months whilst waiting for it to come back after parting with a years supply of beer money. Advice please. Before you ask what accumulator it is, its red(useless but true) and in the least accessible part of the boat (also useless coz you already knew that) but ill find out if its relevant.
  10. 36national

    Too much solar?

    the sun is recharging over winter dats why we dun get no solar till spring innit
  11. and your expertise is what ?
  12. I personally am sure that mad harold has greater insight than the others BECAUSE he has had the same problem and dealt with it just as im also aware that polishing / filtration is an option there seems to be little point in spending 70 quid polishing eighty quids worth of diesel the swan thing was a joke Im off to eat baby on a stick
  13. I have a had 60 foot boat on the leeds and liverpool for the last 2 years (y can add 2 feet if you count the fenders) I ve never been west o Barrowford so I can'tcomment, but from Barrowford to Leeds I know length is not a problem for a 60 foot boat .The canal was designed for 62 foot boats. Theres places where I expect to get a bit damp going down in the locks (everywhere but it won't sink y boat) and if you have an open front deck its gonna get wet going up. I think the shortest lock on that stretch is Lock 39 at Bank Newton but the middle Lock of 3 rise is also a good candidate. Its not like a massive drenching but plan for getting a tad wet . Its easily doable in a 60 foot boat, By the way The LeedsLliverpool is the nicest canal in the country
  14. thankyou for your posts, Im fully aware that there is water emulsified in the aforementioned diesel, and if you read the original post properly then you would also be fully aware that the aforementioned water emulsified diesel is no longer in the aforementioned diesel tank. The original post quite specifically solicited information about what is best do be done wit aforementioned said diesel so treat it (with what advice please) burn it anyway (well the engine was running fine on it and mad harold the only sensible responder out of 16 says "YEA" (but he might be mad)) dump it on a swan's nest at midnight along with the contents of my elsan
