  1. So does the owner of a boat, built in the UK, years before VAT was invented, which is currently in EU waters, have to pay VAT if he brings it back to UK?
  2. 30 to 40 yards from the tree? Is that a printing error? I thought tap roots went down🤔
  3. Can’t see any damage. No
  4. Whilst aboard my friend’s 80 plus year old barge last week we heard a sound as if someone had thrown a decent sized stone against the hull/cabin. There was absolutely no one around and no visible damage anywhere. Maybe a rivet snapping due to rusting plates???
  5. Strange. I painted parts of my bilge with diesel to penetrate the pores of rusty patches (after scraping and wire brushing). No smell whatever after a couple of days, and hardly any at the time of application.

  8. Do the thousands of hire boats on the French canals have holding tanks or sea toilets?
  9. Marine 16......As used by the RNLI. Good enough for me. I suppose one of those “dipstick tube oil draining pumps” will be ideal to suck out any water at the bottom of a fuel tank.

    Pitting

    I remember my narrowboat had lots of these orange crusty spots, which, when removed, revealed bright silver areas. Is this what you are talking about?

    Is this a photo of microbial attack or rust spots?
