    Discoloured Diesel in engine

    A lot of my customers either have a perished O sealing ring on the diesel filler cap or its missing completely. Worth checking as it could cause what's happened here.

    Nope, I managed to find post 94. As I've not been around in an official capacity for a couple of years I'm unaware if it's been discussed recently but has been discussed in the past and it was chosen the best way forward then. That probably still stands today.

    When I was l looking I was very particular about the type of dog (size) I wanted. With spending most of my time in a back cabin or travelling between the north and the midlands on the train it had to be something on the smaller side. I didn't want a large dog hogging most of the space within the boat. I found rather a couple of the charities active on Facebook that rehome Romanian dogs in the UK were very happy with considering boaters but I felt that there were already enough dogs needing help in the UK already.

    When I was lpoking for a four legged friend a couple of years ago a lot of places I enquiried didn't respond and a few responded in the negative when I mentioned boats. In the end I "rehomed" a puppy who was destined for a home that didn't work out at the last minute.

    Cleaning narrowboat

    I washed the boat down with something ready available from a chandlers. It did an amazing job, the boat really came up well with it. A short time after my fingers and palms started to tingle which turned into a stinging pain. Running water over my hands seemed to relieve the pain but came back immediately once I removed them. I checked the cleaning bottle, which had the various warning signs of dead fish and naked trees so promptly binned the bottle. Unfortunately I didn't make a note of the name of it. Now I go for the el-cheapo car shampoo with a similar polish to finish. The same result and less painful! Running water over my hands for am extended period seemed to work eventually so it must have washed most of the nastiness off.

    Best place for a flue?

    I once saw a new build that was in the process of being fitted out. The chimney are with a brand new flue attached below came out of the boat's roof.... right in the middle of the welded steel bracket to hold the boat poles!

    A friend has a boat built by Graham Parker. You do see them advertised once in a blue moon on the Internet. They seem to have a shorter than average bows which is short and upswept.

    CRT on line auction

    I suppose the auction will be more attractive to those companies who already have maintenance equipment and who work on behalf of CRT or carry out other private contract work who are looking to replace or increase their assets will block bid on items as their budget allows. But yeah I can imagine that welfare pod would fit nicely in one of the hoppers and provide 'luxurious' accommodation in the capital
