  1. He looked comfortable handling the boat, not surprising I suppose. If you can hop around the top of a chimney hundreds of feet up you aren’t going to be fazed by a boat travelling at 4mph max.
  2. On BBC Four earlier tonight. Available in catch up.
  3. Use something like this on the gas job. Cheaper variations are available. https://www.outsidersstore.com/primus-primus-toaster-249041?FT20Feed=00002769&FT20Prod=249041900076&gclid=EAIaIQobChMIsNzM1dOP7QIVqhkGAB2fdwndEAQYHSABEgJMKvD_BwE
  4. Last year we were heading to the water point at Botany Bay and saw a small moment tor boat approaching at high speed. It was a bloke showing off to his partner. He slowed when he saw us but when we entered the turbulence he had created it was like being at sea and went on for a considerable distance. When we arrived at the waterpoint his car and trailer were left blocking the slipway. I’m sure all motorboat owners aren’t plonkers but this one was.
  5. The boat is gas free but you have a portable gas stove onboard. You might want to look at this https://canalrivertrust.org.uk/news-and-views/news/boat-safety-scheme-issues-gas-warning-to-boaters
  6. They say that after submitting a survey they won’t usually ask for one again. Having said that that, they haven’t asked us to provide a survey in the first place. Boat age unknown, estimated at 1990. Decent premium as well.
  7. Wood ideally needs at least 12 months seasoning before burning, depending on the type of wood it can be longer. If you burn it sooner be prepared for more emissions from your chimney and make sure you clean your flue regularly.
  8. I completed an annual service the weekend before the first lockdown. From memory it was certainly exercise, hanging upside down working. The air filter change was a particular workout. Marina specific rules aside, I think if your boat needs work to stop serious potential damage and if aren’t endangering anybody then do it. You can get someone to a house to do essential repairs. Boat safety or car mot tests haven’t been suspended, as far as I know. If it needs doing then that seems to fit with the feel of things. If it’s just a jolly then probably not.
  9. Upload them to cloud storage.
  10. I’ve got one of these that are great for me working in the engine bay . Magnetic, flexible and bright. https://www.googleadservices.com/pagead/aclk?sa=L&ai=DChcSEwjtvM_33YzsAhVEze0KHYDeCc8YABAFGgJkZw&ae=1&ohost=www.google.co.uk&cid=CAASEuRom6vzfvA84wQwyEdq6PbTOw&sig=AOD64_3k9Vz7FKgyUWdYzpzRuPxMec6jZw&ctype=5&q=&ved=2ahUKEwjBmcj33YzsAhXiWhUIHfxXCmgQwg96BAgLEBU&adurl=https://www.toolstoyou.com/sealey-led180-rechargeable-slim-folding-inspection-lamp-12-1-smd-led-lithium-ion%3Fgclid%3DEAIaIQobChMI7bzP992M7AIVRM3tCh2A3gnPEAQYAiABEgJxX_D_BwE
  11. If you just go for it nobody would know. By weekend it will be legal in Bolton and not just guidance to obey but who is policing? I will be complying but I guess a lot of people won’t. Having said that the pubs won’t be open so that might make a difference. I get get your eyesight reference, that undermined a lot of things, at least in my opinion.
  12. That doesn’t surprise me. Spread the love 💗 or the virus 🦠
  13. I see it’s a banter post ! Pubs are shut in Bolton so what’s stopping people from Bolton going to Bury, Leigh, Walkden, Wigan, Chorley etc.
  14. I live in Bolton. Pubs, cafes and restaurants and their staff are back in limbo. I’m sure Bolton isn’t that unique in people meeting socially outside of the national guidance. Bolton now, could be your area next. Bolton had low numbers 10 days ago. Is a max of 6 people that bad if it stops areas going the way of Bolton and saves local businesses having to close again.
  15. If you’ve not already seen this it’s worth a look https://en.m.wikipedia.org/wiki/Ghoti shows how bonkers our language/pronunciation can be.
