  1. Thank you for your replies. Think I'll not bother putting in. Our 8 legged friends will only find another way in anyway
  2. Good evening all, In my dim and distant memory when the BSS started I think I read that you could put a flyscreen inside of fixed vents as long it was a certain size mesh. Am I right or going la la🤷‍♂️ Reason for asking is I want to increase vent size but limit the incoming draught Thanking you in advance
  3. English can't enter Wales, it's a covid wall! It must exist like rattys sense of humour
  4. Perhaps they are the ones who don't pay licence fees or cc up tributaries Oh I'm in so much trouble now 🤭
  5. This post cannot be displayed because it is in a forum which requires at least 10 posts to view.
  6. Housing associations make rules far more onerous than the old local authorities. They are less accountable for their actions and being usually a charity they are not subject to FOI requests
  7. No on the floor slightly raised one end towards the water or bramble hedge
  8. I know someone who left her job to join the security for HS2 she came back after a few months telling me all sorts of behaviour of her fellow guards. So in keeping with the animal theme, it was straight from the horses mouth There needs to be an independent investigation into their methods as it seems they've been given carte blanche to do what they want As for HS2 itself It's requirements have changed post covid with everyone working from home and possibly continuing to do. Every independent body looking at it says it's not giving value for money. It'll take a strong person to say enough is enough and pull the plug on it. But it seems there's been so much spent that they have got to carry on
  9. Can't use third rail, you'll keep bumping into "constant cruisers" permanently moored
  10. Definitely run away. Taxi engine! Likely to do random u-turns every time someone waves at you
  11. Thank you all for making me laugh As a camper, we were looked down upon by the box polishers but they sooon ate their words when they saw the amount of space we had. Perhaps I should compare it to me having a wide beam and them a NB Bought a secondhand caravan used it one weekend and gave it away, couldn't stand the snobbery Same with our first cruiser only 27 foot and a petrol engine, but being on the Thames we were looked down upon. Loved that Nauticus. Then upgraded to a twin engine Senior 31 and became a snob. But always gave reverence to the tin tubes, mainly because they could pulverise my grp hull Now I have a 30' tin tube and I still get boat envy and eagerly paw through the canal mags not for the next boat but to see ideas for mine Long story short, be it a car, tent, caravan or any other thing that is owned there will always be people who don't like it, want it or love it and they will want to express an opinion. That's their right to do so the same as it's the recipients right to take issue with said comments. Remember people died to give us that freedom. As for all the vitriol and bile thrown at each other remember as Oscar Wilde is quoted as saying “I may not agree with you, but I will defend to the death your right to make an ass of yourself.”
  12. Remember, beauty is in the eye of the beer holder
  13. Our Mike Sivewright 30' was completely overplated. Haven't needed a periscope, yet
  14. In my opinion, being a newbie as well, I'd steer clear. Seems a lot of money with the amount of work needed. Also recently, whilst trying to renew my insurance, every company specifically asks if it's a Springer
  15. If it auto renews then why do post offices still sell tax discs? There are some people who cannot pay online, auto renewing, perhaps they shouldn't be allowed a motor vehicle. I've seen plenty, but they will disappear quickly as either the tax is paid or they are removed incurring more charges Perhaps CRT could take a leaf out of the DVLA book. A nice big "You ain't licenced" sticker will at least make the licenced aware they are on the case
