  2. Will it be like March 2018? Getting home at midnight on 18th March 2018. BRILLIANT!
  3. The empty crisp packet lying in the high street here outside the post office has COMPLETELY GONE ! 😱
  4. Tim looks nuffern like his avatar in real life. More like "Hungerford Man". But I doubt you'll know what I mean by that....!
  5. I wasn't sure, but couldn't resist the temptation to put such a big name on the list! Paul's greatest crime was in my personal opinion, "The Frog Chorus" in 1984. Even today he rejects criticism of it, saying he can see nothing wrong with it. Here it is for your delectation, in case you forgot how truly dreadful it really is:
  6. BOWIE <face-smack> !! Dun Eagles already
  7. Never really liked the Stones, all a bit derivative. Beatles were SOOOO much more musically clever an imaginative....
  8. Dammit Pink Floyd, how could I of missed them!!
  9. Cuthound is Baldrick's older brother, taught him everythink. Dint you know??!
  10. Yep, and I missed of so many top names from my dashed off list! Cream, Traffic, Small faces/Humble Pie, Jimi Hendrix, Neil Young, Eagles, Ozric Tentacles, ELP.... and loads more still to add
  11. Can you also focus it and aim it at the steerer of the oncoming boat with a light brighter that the sun, to illustrate to them what it's like?
  12. The crisp packet here just moved a bit....

  14. Oh how sad you know so little about 70s music 😱 Have you never heard of The Beatles, Led Zeppelin, Deep Purple, Black Sabbath, Yes, Caravan, Wishbone Ash? A whole new paradigm in music, world famous amongst music fans back in the 70s.
  15. Yes, nasty plastic things that need throwing away....
  16. I think you have answered your own question with your caveat. How does anyone know (or better, prove) it has been "done properly"?
  17. A bit like widebeams moored opposite one. Not the width that is a problem, but the fact that many are 12"-18" taller than a NB, completely blocking out the lovely view of the morning sun rising over the hill. Few peeps seem to notice this extra height they have!
  18. It's a slippery slope. Yes dumping the boat for two weeks on a water point deserves recording formally but what about being a bit too near a winding hole, in some other boater's opinion? What are the guidelines? I think this will turn into a major issue for disagreement in the future. Will boats featured in the FB group "Moored like a twat" all get warning points?

  20. Yes that offers far better protection than a simple PRV as it will open (hopefully) if the temp approaches boiling point, and bring in fresh cold water to the calorifier in the event of the heater thermostat contacts welding themselves together,. as they regularly do. Yes it is. The problem is that PRVs tend to stick closed if left untested for long periods of time, hence the fitting of a separate PRV on household calorifiers. Twice the chance of one or the other opening in fault conditions. Yes this is a legal requirement nowadays for immersion heaters in houses, since the death of two children about 20 years ago. Not for boats, but any immersion heater thermostat manu not incorporating overheat disconnection for a boat heater would have a hard time in court illustrating they had designed responsibly in the event of an explosion, if they had not incorporated one. So I'd expect all immersion heater/stats to have overheat protection built in nowadays.

  22. Or whether that cash had been through any *other* books first!
  23. Is this in addition to the PRV or instead of? Domestic calorifiers have both. A PRV calibrated to 2 or 3 Bar and a T&P valve calibrated to open at usually 5 or 6 Bar or 90c.
