  1. Filmed using an endoscope. Watch to the end for some fishies! https://photos.app.goo.gl/gtesB53aMoY9Ue6j9 Bonus (nosey) fishie footage https://photos.app.goo.gl/C9Np98EaHiGPfGTp6
  2. My Dawncraft 22 has two 10L (removable) petrol tanks under the rear seat. They're not bolted down or anything, but still passed the BSS no problem. Maybe someone had left a vent on the container open? That would give a whiff of petrol on lifting the lid.
  3. I don't suppose there are any online courses geared towards (preferably petrol) outboard motors? I have a Suzuki 15HP that I know very little about. Or even good books on the subject?
  4. Oh, the mooring in that video was definitely off. At first, I ended up parallel to the mooring, but about 2ft away. Got it much better in my (not on video) second try.
  5. I think in my case it was because I gave a skoosh of forward to turn, but didn't give another skoosh to finish the turn. So I got half way then probably the wind blew me back around.
  6. I was planning on doing something this coming week, but after this wee shot up and down I realised that I'm NOT experienced enough for it. I'd be going solo. I'll spend the coming week on the boat and getting more practice (sun willing). But I definitely want to plan a wee jaunt up to Southpark Marina as a test.
  7. This was my first time going up the F&C canal a wee bit. I was still trying to get the hang of controlling the boat. I turned to go right, but then the boat decided it wanted to go left, but changed its mind and went right. A bit of a faff, but I got there in the end. I've since been up and down there again (solo no-less!) and getting the hang of it now.
  8. Done from a photo since it was chucking it down outside.
  9. Only just. If I was about 4" taller I'd be crouching. I have several of those little mini life rings decorating the boat. I can do one from a photo if you like. Free for you guys as you've all helped me so much in the past.
  10. The thing in the corner? That's a diesel heater.
  11. Been quite a few changes since the updated doodle. So here's an updated updated doodle.
  12. Aye, it would have been nice to go, but I couldn't get the time off work that week to attend (then recover ). I hope you'll take us all some nice photos of the event.
  13. Indeed! I do plan on doing some boating in June. I'm hoping to take a wee jaunt up to Southbank Marina (from Bowling) as my maiden voyage.
