  1. Interesting point as my tunnel light was on a bracket so could be adjusted before entering tunnel . It was quite a small but adequate little oblong light and more than adequate shining slightly at the 'roof' of the tunnel. I do understand those with eye challenges but mine are getting on and I found oncoming excessively bright lights required my hand to block them.
  2. Lion hearts cruising club is a small friendly club. Up to 35' I believe and those I met were nice people. Nr Giffard Park. MK
  3. The pumpout there wasn't great - I preferred to cruise up to Baxter's for a friendly service. Last time I went to PB I had to try to do it alone, it was lucky there was a guy hanging around who offered to help but it wasn't guaranteed and he said you had to pay for a second token if one didn't do it and my tank was small but it was roof access. These things matter but I was a visitor not living there.
  4. I lost a 1000 deposit to a broker in 2008 near whilton locks because we stupidly paid it and our funds hadn't cleared in time - 1 week! The owner took the boat off the market.. I felt bitter at the time, but we subsequently found a boat at a brokers quite nearby that took a deposit fixed a few important things then took the rest. It was a stroke of luck. The second boat had dropped by £13k by the time our house sold, Steve lost about that on his house sale so we were quits, and we got a much better liveaboard for the mooring we had chosen. Loved it and miss her.
  5. The windows say woods tough with a bs857 but can't work out who made them
  6. I'm about to order some new catches. Any advice? Ta muchly
  7. Sort of on topic. I was advised that if I were to upgrade my propane gas regulator it ought to be of higher load as I have heating, cooker and hob all gas. How do you choose a better propane gas regulator ? Thank you!
  8. I guess it must have been at the museum in Birkenhead as I'm not that old...defo rode a tram. Can't ask rellies as they are mostly dead. Sadly. Going to get photos...
  9. I was a bit bored, so I decided to see what happened to the freeflowing barge. I really loved the bit about the trams and would also love the recipe for the malt loaf. Probs need to make appointment at opticians now and... I have a tram story. I was very lucky to ride one in Liverpool/Birkenhead more like when my boys were little. Could probably find a photo but would be hard to put it in the slot on my phone.https://www.liverpoolmuseums.org.uk/museum-of-liverpool
  10. I didn't believe boats counted for CGT because I was unable to claim a loss I made. Surely it works both ways? What about as a second home? Say you live in a scruffy tin can but owned a house? What occurs if you sell your house?
