  1. All, thanks for your replies. I did my last service in October 2019 when I winterised the boat. I have had around 4 lts of oil in a 5 lts container in the engine bay since October 2019. I am aware water can get in the diesel tank due to condensation. Does this happen with oil in a plastic container? Cheers
  2. Purchased the charts which are very informative. Set of three for £25.00. Looking at information online and CRT website. It has been recommended to have landlines 30 foot in length for River Trent and River Ouse. For the boaters who have traveled on these rivers is this your experience? Thanks
  3. I have a Isuzu 35 Engine. Looking to carry out a service. Isuzu Marine manual states air filter element number 100066-4LS. Carried out a search online and cannot find any information. It currently has a Beta Air Filter 211-61832. There are a number of sites selling this filter online. My local car spares cannot find this on its data base! Does anyone have this engine ? Are you buying the filter from local car spares? If yes what is the parts number? Thanks
  4. Thanks Plan to fit Karndean Looselay, will keep you posted
  5. Anyone laid Karndean flooring on top of vinyl ?

  7. Waiting until after Crick Virtual Boat Show before buying VHF radio, hopefully there may be a few deals. I am now looking at https://icomuk.co.uk/IC-M25Euro/Handheld-VHF-Marine-Radio From people posts I recognize some boaters choose not to take up a VHF licence. I found this link with a sample online course https://www.seavoice-training.co.uk/events/rya-online-vhf-radio-course/ I have learnt River Ouse uses channel 9 & 74 - River Thames 17 - Gloucester & Sharpness Canal, Sharpness Port 13. Ribble Link and Weaver Navigation use phone numbers for the lo
  8. The following info on page 41 & 42 shows it has all these channels except 2006 https://standardhorizon.co.uk/wp-content/uploads/2019/08/HX210_E_OM_ENG_EM061N210_1804M-BC-1.pdf Great feed back by all Thanks
  9. Nicknorman, Midnight I have decided to purchase Standard Horizon HX210E https://standardhorizon.co.uk/products/#handheld-vhf to enable me to listen to any chatter when arriving at locks or bridges on River Ouse. Also to communicate with them. I understand from reading another thread 'VHF Radio' that I need a licence. This has been confirmed by https://www.rya.org.uk/knowledge-advice/boating-abroad/european-inland-waterways/Pages/atis-and-rainwat.aspx The manual for HX210E states the user has to install the ATIS code. If you are narrow boaters only like mys

  11. Hi I am planning to travel to Ripon from Marston this summer for the first time. NB Caelmiri - re your post September 2019 - Did you get to York? Did you have any issues? NickNorman - re your post September 2019 - You mentioned you used your radio to communicate with Selby Swing Bride. Can you recommend a radio? Thanks
