  1. EA licence required for the great ouse, best of luck to you, I just spent 7 weeks trying to get mine registered for 21/22 with EA, nightmare to deal with!
  2. Afternoon all, Can anyone recommend a decent TV antenna, I was looking at something like this: https://www.force4.co.uk/item/Majestic/UFO-X-TV-Antenna/1082 Reading all the writeups they all say they are amazing, call me cynical, but I doubt it... Thanks Dave
  3. A few years ago I resigned myself to the fact I'll never own property and only ever have a crap boat and crap car 😪
  4. Yeah I know, I've sent and received many items to and from the US. I figured the injectors are small and light and if somewhere was needed I could recommend the company that did it for me.
  5. https://www.cambsinjectorservice.co.uk/ these guys did my 2.2 injectors a few months back. Drop them a line, very helpful...

  9. Be careful with non return valves on bilge pumps. I had an issue with one a few years ago, upon testing by pooring a few buckets of water in it would turn on and pump water out. Then after 30 mins added another bucket of water, pump would turn on but not be able to pump... Turns out there was an air lock on the pump impeller!! As the bilge water level rose the air in the impeller had no where to go as the non return valve had 2 foot of water on it...

  11. It shouldn't have been too difficult to start, check all your glow (heater) plugs are working, how long did you give the heater plugs, id have thought 20 seconds of heat in these temps and engine should start easily... Also, are your starting batteries up to it, if it doesn't turn over fast enough it will be a bugger to start... If you do decide to do a re power, it will be a lot of work and expensive, great project but is the boat worth it?
  12. I might be missing the point here, but if, as he says in the article, the yacht was bought in Britain then surely he's already paid the correct taxes? If I take my car abroad then come back, I don't have to pay vat to get it back in the country...!
  13. Wow, just shows the power of expansion & contraction...
  14. I have built stainless tanks before and I'll assume the plastic tanks are injection moulded. My guess its easier to make plastic tanks with internal pump out connection. Ref the stainless tank, building wise it wouldn't make much difference. I'd say its down to the space you want to fit it in...
