  1. Thank heavens for some support. I was only trying to be helpful. I am going to stop posting on here, there are so many that just turn any innocent post into an argument. I have so many on ignore to try to avoid them that I only get half the posts anyway. It will be unfortunate for those boaters who seek help and who I am able and willing to help. So farewell Canalworld.
  2. An old thread back to haunt us? Drank loads of Corona as a kid, perhaps that is why I am what I am? However, I am becoming increasingly worried about several million people who are now unidentifiable to law & order and security forces because they are wearing face masks legitimately. If I were a terrorist I would turn this to my advantage. I do hope, probably in vain, that the more unstable and fanatical members of our societies have not had the same thought. Can you go into a bank now wearing a face mask?
  3. Now you are just being ridiculous and over compensating. My comment was well meant, not judgemental like yours. I expected better of you, my tolerance is normal, your remarks are extreme. My orientation is nothing to do with dinosaurs. I spend a large portion of my life in the far east, Thailand and the Philippines where a different sexual orientation is looked upon as a blessing. This is not the attitude that prevails in the UK.
  4. You may need a boat. The question is " Do I need This boat?
  5. I thought he was just taking a photo with his phone, two handed. Who was the dayglow figure or was it an apparition?
  6. Not worth the personal risk, let it go its own way. Even if you got a line on a boat that size you would do nothing with it unless you had a proper big bollard to check it on.
  7. About your new boat name. As you are OK displaying your sexuality I hope that you do not get too many homophobic remarks. You have been away for some considerable time, consider please. This is not Thailand where sexual orientation is an open book, Britain is still populated with folk who may take exception to GayZing and the rainbow. And act accordingly towards you. Why put yourself up as an Aunt Sally?
  8. Remember it needs to be adaptable to Propane ( or Butane if you still use ) not all domestics will. Many will have mains clocks, ignition, oven fans etc, Not intended for 12v.
  9. My 100w panel keeps my 500 Ah stack alive 4 months in winter no problem.
  10. Exactly, what all canals need, Bill and Ben then there would be Little Weed.
  11. Why are there no Smart Railways?
  12. Years ago we had the use of a CTS 70' with an Ailsa Craig RF4 lump in the middle. Far and away too big to be sensible, impossible for spares. A lovely free swimming boat, did 2mph as soon it was in gear at tickover, cruised at 180 RPM and was a nightmare to use at times. Could never run it hard enough to clear the carbon, threw red hot carbon clinkers into your face all day. Eventually on the Bridgewater it started to knock, due to carbon build up. Ended up being towed back to its mooring for repair. Accommodation wise climbing around the flywheel to get through the boat was difficult, impossible when underway. Convinced me that as a live aboard I needed an engine under the floor not sat where the bedroom should be.
  13. This is the stuff, in various configurations sizes and end fittings. https://www.ebay.co.uk/itm/Flexible-Copper-Plumbing-pipes-4Sticks-15-mm-x-15Mm-x-300mm-UK/274164806048?hash=item3fd57ef1a0:g:nLYAAOSwy3hdglhQ Its a good idea if a bit pricey. I use it for making hot rod cylinder converters.
  14. Total agreement. I worked recovery on the M6, M56, M63,M62 and M61 years ago, I would refuse now. The smart new lane on the motorway is a death lane. It will come to a head one day, maybe a double decker bus with 76 old folks on it on a freezing cold and foggy night in winter broken down. What would you do with the passengers to ensure their safety?
