  4. A closer view of the bridge in question, last year. One or two indications of previous mishaps.
  5. Are they? They'd better hurry up then - the equinox is on Monday and our local forecast is 'Sunny intervals and a gentle breeze' 😎
  6. So where will all this turmoil be? I've just looked at the forecast for this area (Scottish Borders) and there is absolutely no indication of anything untoward.

  8. By 'Above Lock' I presume they mean 'on the river'? But Haddlesey basin is a good place to get stuck - a beautiful sheltered little spot and one of my favourite moorings, although there is only one pub now. And buses to Selby within a 10 minute walk.
  9. Indeed. Taking the air intake for stoves from outside a house is increasingly common practice, but not (yet) mandatory. What the regulations do say is that the room containing the stove must have a certain amount of fixed ventilation, according to the output of the stove. This may involve extra ventilation in modern houses, but not in boats although AFAIU the ventilation recommendations for BSS are advisory only. Perhaps the OP was taking modern stove installation in houses as a guide. But a boat is not a house,
  10. Had a tatty old brush taken from my roof at Blisworth. No high value items on the roof except the dog, although I haven't looked at the price of boat poles recently.
  11. Do the *s have any significance?
  12. Don't be put off by Dave. I understood your post reasonably well, but TBH your questions are far too wide to get someone to attempt to answer.
  13. Well, both actually. https://www.thespruce.com/vining-and-bush-tomatoes-1835707
  14. The reason to ditch the 'hat' is that tar can condense on the underside of it and drip off outwith the chimney, onto the roof. I wondered why I was getting tar on the roof after fitting an inner skin to the chimney, then actually saw this happening one cold day. It depends what fuel you are burning - more likely with wood which I burn. Try it with the hat on, and if it's OK, then fine.
