  1. And I was wondering if the restaurant staff had visited here and read Paras posts, and decided to give him the level of service he deserves 🤣

  3. Do they? What makes you think that? The last thing CRT wants is more boaters. They are doing their best to get rid of boaters. With no boaters, the canals would be vastly easier and cheaper to operate. To CRT boaters are a perennial thorn in their side. The fewer boaters the better, from the CRT management point of view.
  4. I've found the same on the few occasions I've gone there to get a product for a price mentioned on here. Always none on sale. Given the time wasted I'd have been better of going to Wickes or B&Q and paying full price, then getting on with earning money.
  5. Excuse me? My on line and farm moorings cost significantly more than the less desirable nearby marina moorings.
  6. They all lie..... as n e fule knose
  7. NO, it would not. One will get addicted to it.
  8. CRT on line mooring. None of that shyte you bin mentioning. Real boating. None of that secure car parking 240v bollard, pump-out, water tap, neat and tidy pontoons crap posh middle class boaters expect and demand. Muddy towpaths, street parking, 4 miles and 6 locks to the water point and elsan and back, no light pollution and brilliant stars, owls patrolling, isolation, peace and bliss.....
  9. No. Yes. No. How am I sposed to no?!!
  10. I'm planning on never finding out.....
  11. I use craftinsure.com Instant cover at the click of a rat... (Is that actually right?)

  15. Some of those cheese puns are crackers, but Twitter still has a whey to go to keep up with CWF puns....
  16. I too have an Orion boat and just because Richard did weird things like this, it does not necessarily make them a Good Idea!!!
  17. Yes I totally overlooked this! Lets do it a step at a time. First, we need to find out the terminal voltage on the water pump under whatever conditions the tripping occurs. Then we can confirm the diagnosis of low pump voltage, or rule it out. Once we know the pump terminal voltage when the fault is happening, we can go forward without running up blind alleys.
  18. As Alan points out earlier, this does not follow. If the pipe run was too long (i.e. of too high resistance), the pump would reach its cut-off pressure very easily and simply cycle on and off repeatedly, perfectly happily. As others have also said, the cable feeding the pump is probably inadequate, but no-one so far has told you how to prove it. Start the shower, then use a multimeter to measure the voltage at the pump terminals while the pump is running. It needs to be 12.0v or higher. I predict you'll find a value of perhaps 10v or possibly a lot less, confirming the diagnosis. The fault is probably cables too thin, but might just be a high resistance switch of cable joint somewhere. Do report back what you find...
  19. Which is just how it should be really. The really experienced examiner knows he needs to be assessing the boater more than the boat, and you passed!!

  22. Same applies to lead, for 1% of the price! Lighter than gold too.
