  1. Daughter's boat is fitted with an Eastham Maxol BG21 cooker. The hob burners are a strange construction of ring, crinkly ring and top plate. Anyway, one of them has delaminated into 3 component parts. Is there anywhere I might source a replacement part?
  2. Daughter's BMC 1.5 suffered a leak on the final leg of the spill rail (final injector back to fuel filter), which has been given a temporary fix, but it won't pass a Boat Safety. Apparently, rather than trying to replace and crimp a new pipe, the best option is to buy a new spill rail. However, the only one that comes up on Google; https://rimmerbros.com/Item--i-ERR1259P--SelectedCurrency-1?gclid=CjwKCAjw_JuGBhBkEiwA1xmbRUPQo5c6xgcxBU9MrkhA_o9OU3tZxofCVIFu2b2ASTEuHEJ1t1QwkBoCsHEQAvD_BwE I suspect isn't compliant. Can anybody point me at a source of a spill rail that will comply? Thanks
  3. I was there, and really not impressed. There was a lot of hand wringing about Coombs feeder, and no acknowledgment that they had known for years it didn't flow well, and that the culvert had probably collapsed. They are (18 months down the line) talking to EA about being able to draw the water that is going into the Goyt instead of Toddbrook into the canal from the Goyt. Sorry to be picky, but many people asked about this 12 months ago, and were dismissed. I don't believe the answer to my question that they have been trying to get this supply for as long as they claim. They are trying to make out that they are wonderful for all the works done. Works that have been neglected for years. And now, we have an emergency stoppage for a culvert problem in Macc. This is the same attitude to bodging repairs that we saw year after year in Bollington. This culvert had an emergency stoppage in November/December 2018. Clearly a proper repair was not done then. Between wasting all the water through the canal bed at Bollington, and failing to maintain reservoirs, the boaters up here have seen their boating curtailed EVERY YEAR since 2016 by emergency stoppages of some kind, whether Bollington threatening to breach or running out of water, or the farce of Marple locks closing within a day of opening. What can they offer us, more of the same for the next 3 years. No, it means that they have no water whether the blockage is sorted or not.

  14. I'm afraid that I have to disagree. This was not an unavoidable accident, and the narrative of "they were all pushing each other in, and there was nothing untoward, lads will be lads" is quite simply wrong. They were all engaged in what was pretty stupid behaviour, and this resulted in a death. The guy who died was stupid. Those pushing their friends in were stupid, the skipper was stupid. He has placed himself in charge of a vehicle, and has not exercised proper attention to the responsibilities that this brings. My view is that this is gross negligence manslaughter.
  15. OK, so you have asked your brother for help. You seem to feel that as what you are asking is easy for him and hard for you, he is under some kind of obligation to help you, and you are complaining that he is going to come to help you at a time that is inconvenient to you, because it will interrupt what YOU want to do. That does seem to be a somewhat entitled approach. If you want your brother to help you, then perhaps you should have the good grace to accept the help he offers at HIS convenience, rather than expecting him to work around what you want?

  19. Yes, it does seem to be slightly less than regular!
  20. The app requests the log around every 2 hours, and what it gets are the keys of anybody whose app has them as being positive (whether because they say they have symptoms or because they have tested positive) What your app does is check if it has seen any of those keys. If it has, then the API will flag up a banner to say that your app will evaluate the contact. That means that the app will look at how long and how close the contact is, before deciding if you need to isolate. I have had one flag of a contact, but the app didn't evaluate it as a close contact.
  21. Not so. The headline figure is the number reported today, but the data series you can download is by sample date.
  22. With my pedantic head on; PCCs are an excepted charity, rather than an exempt charity. Exempt charities are outwith the purview of the charity commission. Excepted Charities are not registered, but are regulated by the charity commission

  25. It is indeed very sad indeed to hear of Nigel's death. I wasn't even aware that he was unwell. I am glad that we both stuck at it from initial butting of heads on issues upon which we would never agree to the point where we still disagreed about most things, but we had moved past the fact that we disagreed. Our arguing about the detail turned heat into light, and although we continued to disagree, we were both intellectually challenged by the fine detail of the argument. In some cases, we each came to understand that the world wasn't as we would want it, and that in some cases the other was right as to the law. I would have loved to hear his views on the use of the term "houseboat" in the Coronavirus Regulations. He managed to argue well, and with courtesy, and I will very much miss that.
