  1. Only 45 would be odd. The others are even, Shirley.
  2. Also, sez he was on the cut 15 years ago and not many people bothered with licensing. Not my memory at all that licensing was considered optional back in 2007. Maybe it was in other areas from mine.
  3. It's not just the unnecessary huge list of boards that is disappointing, it's the whole layout o the home screen with its acres of wasted space. I've commented on it many times over the years but I think its a function of the forum software rather than how the technical mods have it configured. I think the Invision programmers assume everyone views the forum on a 26" desktop monitor.
  4. My whole small laptop CWF screen. No room left for any actual content!
  5. They could always move it to the River Lea. Oh hang on, just thought of a snag....

    I wouldn't want it for free. It reminds me of an old Jag. Looks luxurious but cheap to buy because the maintenance and repair costs will be crippling.
  7. Middlesborough. £59,950, probably accept an offer. https://www.rightmove.co.uk/properties/127258826#/?channel=RES_BUY
  8. Yes! Sadly proper pianos are virtually worthless nowadays, unless they are something special like previously owned by someone famous or built by a top flight maker, e.g. Steinway. One usually has the pay to dispose of them, rather than sell them. Maybe the whole boat sale is a fiendish scheme to get rid of it.
  9. Houses like that are similar to boats in many respects. There are a million logical reasons not to buy them but they are fascinating and lovely to live in. Like boats, a weird layout, low ceilings, risk of flooding and and terrible energy efficiency add to the charm, rather than detract from it. The only thing wrong I can see with that house is the boring ordinary slate roof, instead of thatch!
  10. I'd suggest the electrical switch in the pressure switch is wearing out and getting high resistance just as the motor works the hardest as it approaches cut-off pressure. Time to buy a whole new water pump I suggest, ready to swap out when yours properly fails. Yes water pumps can be repaired but my own experience is repairing them is a fool's errand. Once one thing goes wrong they are approaching end of life and if youy fix that one thing, another fault promptly appears. so nowadays I just fit a whole new pump at the slightest hint of trouble.

    Up and down between Dunchurch Pools and Braunston, probably!

  14. Ah now that's interesting. Maybe the advent of solid handrails led to the need for centre lines. The H&L boat I mentioned earlier in the thread had them newfgangled solid style handrails, hence the sidedeck bollards to tie some lines to.
  15. This does seem a good way forward as a lot of the abuse of Elsans etc happens because the CRT ones are by nature, unsupervised. Once it a boatyard is supplying the service even if free to the users (and paid for by CRT behind the scenes), the supervision element of there being boatyard staff around suggests to me that abuse will be less likely.
