  1. Needs quick action before it gets worse. Where’s the local lengthsman?

  4. It seems to me that this will work very well with things like phones, drones and door bells. However the equipment needed to let this rate of charge work in a car is surely going to be substantial . The existing fast chargers have to cope with a substantial current, both in the charger and in the car to be able to accept the charge. It's a fair way off yet.

  6. I have this image of ten+ tons of rusty narrowboat slipping the slings as it is being hoisted over the roof of your house ...
  7. I’ve done a bit of sailing in the past, but I barely understood a word of that! These flying yachts are really amazing to watch. There is a video somewhere taking on board; those guys seem to work incredibly hard.

  9. Well, if people didn’t keep throwing money at Murdock, they wouldn’t get paid so much. A bit like someone I know who complains about the cost of his Liverpool season ticket. “Yes, and if you keep paying it they will keep charging it”.

  11. In the good old days the prime players went home on the bus and had a bath in a tin in front of the front room fire.
  12. The pictures all appear to be taken in spring/summer. I wonder if she is still living the dream?
  13. The paint on my Vetus was the same, and not just where it had been stood on.

    Much the same a Nick. I use BNC connectors to link in the sat finder (quicker than the F-type) and it usually takes me maybe a minute to get a good lock. Don't often lose the signal with boat movement, and if so it is only a second or two. I also use Nicholsons to get the direction to aim. With practice you soon get the knack of setting it up.
  15. I've got a short length of Finrad on the calorifier return (and another on the radiator return) in the bottom of a full height cupboard. Used for airing/ drying coats and clothes. I've got valves that can let me select rads/cal/both and still works well if only the calorifer is being heated. You can find old-fashioned heater matrixes (I'm thinking A35) that don't have any restrictions to the flow which would work in a similar way. Wouldn't want anything in the calorifier circuit that affected the flow.
