  1. This post cannot be displayed because it is in a forum which requires at least 10 posts to view.
  2. Useful supplier now that Aquafax have gone. Worth saving the link (don't start looking at the comprehensive catalogues or you will see all sorts of things you didn't know you needed).
  3. Yes. That’s how I see it. So as long as you have your BSC done by GS/LPG examiner, the question of whether or not the gas has been installed by a ‘competent’ person becomes academic as far as passing the BSC is concerned.
  4. Ok, so you can do your own gas work and then get a suitably qualified GasSafe person to sign off your work. This should satisfy any court that the work was done to a competent standard. How does this compare to having your BSC done by a similarly qualified examiner, who then effectively signs off the gas system by passing the BSC examination?
  5. Obvious I know, but is the oil level ok?
  6. Keeping up is right. It’s the one on the top, right hand side looking back.
  7. Kia very helpful and accommodating, including collecting and returning the car to home at no charge.
  8. We've normally showed up on spec, but book for the return. Got caught out last year, turned up late morning but told no free spots. Ok I said, how about in the morning. " only guaranteed if you book", I.e. 'next available slot' doesn't carry over to the next day .
  9. Looking at the blistering paint and marks on the walls, and the state of the exterior it must leak like the proverbial sieve. And that is in the good half. Very dodgy-looking wiring dangling everywhere. OK so I have no real experience of woodentops, but to me it looks as though the whole superstructure needs replacing.

  10. Not actually Covid-related, but no doubt some updates could be included to encompass it... Had enough government rhetoric? Tired of following the sheeple? Fed up with believing what THEY want you to believe? Maybe it's time to branch out and discover THE TRUTH.
  11. Didn’t know ASAP were part of Arleigh, but that seems a bit academic now. Not surprisingly, considering cost of property, loans and rates, the world seems to be moving to on- line sales,especially as delivery is much better sorted. No substitute for wandering around a chandlery looking for that essential item you didn’t know you needed.
  12. Many people don't live on their boat. But do "spend a lot of time on it". It's fairly easy to tell if a marina has "liveaboards", just don't use the term. And as Alan says, sort out your "address" details in advance.
  13. The fluted indoor keys have six spines. The Enfield one appears to have four, and also variations in the length
  14. My first boat had a DM2. Although a semi-trad, the first thing inside was the engine room. Then through a door to the cabin and the rest of the boat. Could be the same with a trad stern.
  15. The grease nipple on those bearing housings should line up with a groove in the bearing. When te rudder post is at an angle and the grease nipple is in line with the tilt, as is yours, the grease misses the groove and just comes out on the outside of the bearing. Which is why the bearings often don't last very long as the ball race rusts.
