  1. Effort for financial reward, probably not. Effort for personal satisfaction, immeasurable.
  2. If it’s an iPad, home and power button simultaneously and you’ll hear the camera click. The image is then in your photo album.
  3. I think what appears to be the fuel leak off is in fact a morse control cable, it’s an optical illusion.
  4. Ducks are a bit bonkers, there was a pair in our yard a couple of weeks ago and the female insisted on sitting in a coil of rope, she was convinced it would pass for a nest. I had to move it so we didn’t have a ducky migrant family living with us.
  5. I’m sure she could have ducked out of their way...
  6. We would collect and scrap if it was within a day’s travel, by water, of Wakefield. The last one we collected ( from an OAP ) who had given up boating, looked far too good to scrap, so we had it surveyed. It passed with flying colours, so we blacked it and welded on new anodes. The first person to view bought it and we were able to take 3k back to the old fella. He was delighted as he’d expected to be covering our costs. When they are scrapped, the bows are cut off to make a skip sized container, the rest goes into this ( in large chunks ) and the interior goes into a skip.
  7. Always look forward to reading your individual and informative posts. Could you clarify something that might help explain your style? You give your location as “ Foundry Arms, Poole “, that’s a pub, right?

  11. Thanks for correcting those. The repairs wouldn’t be a problem but trying to correct those images was another matter (I have tried). That work is some I did around ten years ago, so it’s proven it’s reliability. Out of interest, I also “adapted “ and fitted the skeg, I’m sure the eagle-eyed will recognise what I made it from.
  12. If that’s what the damage/problem is, it should be entirely possible to make a permanent repair on site and with the boat still in the water. All that’s required are a couple of weld on flanges (obtainable from industrial pipe supplies) and the usual welding equipment. One flange is welded to the top of the rudder blade and the other to the broken off section of bar/post. To fit, the post piece is threaded up through the counter and then the blade slotted into place and bolted up. A solid and permanent repair, all carried out through the weed hatch. For clarity, for some reason the photo is inverted, it’s not like that in my album and I don’t know how to correct it.

  21. A further possibility to the above, make sure your injectors are in good condition, I’ve known Diesel engines to pick up as described, due to injectors over fuelling and washing the bores of their oil coating.
  22. Your’e doomed.....doomed I tell you...
  23. I had the same symptoms on some acrylic ( ridgid ) windows, on a commercial vessel. The sun facing ones were the worst and had a similar rough feel. What worked for me was T-cut. The windows were cloudy to the point of being almost opaque and are now perfectly usable. Suggest trying on a test area, hope this helps.

  25. It’s difficult to to spell a spoken word incorrectly but some manage it. Axe instead of Ask, that’s a real wind up. Then there’s the mispronounced words, presumably for dramatic effect, Newkiller instead of Nuclear. Why? Nuclear sounds scary enough....
