  2. I agree. Was pleasantly surprised. The basin seems a nice spot, though it is rather shallow on the visitor mooring. Have moored by the junction too. When it is your only cruising option though...

  6. It will weigh the weight of the water it displaces, so you need to work out the volume of water that the hull takes up under the water line, then use the density of water. Easiest to do it in cubic metres, then one tonne equals one cubic metre. You'll need the shape of the hull under water and the draft at the fore and aft end. It doesn't matter if it is wood, or steel, or plastic, or how much or little ballast, or load is in it. Just shape and draft under the water line. Jen
  7. Why are knives to the left of forks in cutlery draws, yet to the right in a place setting? 79% or so of people are right handed, so the place setting with knives to the right makes sense as this is the eating iron that needs the most control. I wouldn't even consider stocking a cutlery draw any other way, but I can't think of any reason why most people do it like that. May parents and grandparents stored them knives | forks | spoons too.

  8. Dull and rusty, like the knife blades.
  9. Nice to see a thread on CWDF where everyone is happy to admit they are talking bollards. 😀
  10. Another company having a go at battery swapping for cars. As with a lot of things, success is unlikely to depend on technical prowess alone, but on capturing a market, funding, standardisation and a big dose of timing and luck. They comment that building a car with a huge battery bank to get range leads to a lot of waste transporting that weight most of the time when it isn't needed for short journeys where they can be charged, or swapped regularly. Their idea is that you would swap, or charge a small number of batteries frequently and load up with more for long trips in to the wilds with few
  11. There is a historic right to navigation up as far as Welshpool, , according to the EA, so land owners can't object to your passing, only to you landing. Jen

  13. I only use gas for cooking, so the trip to the gas locker in the dark, wind and rain only needs doing every four months or so. When the gas runs out then of course it will be dark, windy and raining. That's the rules. If I used it for heating water, then I might consider an auto changeover as the prospect of it running out in the middle of a shower is grim! I accept the occasional "why isn't my tea cooking" with the current system. The more nuts and bolts you've wielded spanners on in your life, the weirder and more wrong left handed gas threads feel as they go completely against muscle m
