    How can you cook something you knew as Pinky or Perky?

    Very good considering. Doing great. Well on our way to Langley Mill. Think we may get there on time in April.In Atherstone. How's you. Are you moving in the foreseeable future or are you raising pigs?

    The engine in question is running. There is no evidence of smoke, of any colour, exiting the exhaust. It does sound good. It may not be in idle, perhaps a fewrevs on.

    Regardless of what others say, they are very easily repaired. We have a very similar pump on Nightwatch. We have owned the boat for 14 years. During that time we have replaced the diaphragm unit three times now. We live aboard and it's in almost constant use.

    Yes it is. 1973 I've been told. Thanks Richard. I'm not an engineer by any stretch of the imagination but thought snake oil might have been involved. The engine, was, idling out of gear. Turned off now.

    I agree. The previous owner ran the engine and the gearbox with no or very little oil. Mate says he'll put some stuff, forgot what it's called, in and that re-coats everything with metal-ish deposits. I asked if it's like redex and he said no.

    The OP hasn't bought it. His friend has bought it from someone who had neglected it in their ownership. It a fibre glass top but looks okay. Houdini hatch has a leak but it's on the list of things to do item number 1327. The engine is ticking over as I type berthed next to us. Wisps of blackish smoke coming out of the exhaust but not loads. Sounds nice. Says to decoke it all you need is a bit of vim into the air inlet. I'm not convinced.

    Well it's Valentines day

    I'm not really a lover of offal. One Valentine's Day, years ago, I went to a butchers and purchased some liver, and cooked liver and bacon for my loved one. I even had to touch the bloody awful stuff. My loved one enjoyed it immensely. Can't remember if I benefitted!!

    Thanks both. I'll pass this on.

    A friend of mine has just purchased Seneca, a 1973 Janel Cruisers Narrowboat. It has the above engine. Sounds a good engine but smokes. I realise a lot of Listers smoke. Anything he ought to be aware of?

    Titanic is not bad, but it's pretending to be Guinness, which it isn't. I mentioned in another thread that I went into the Anchor at Hartshill the other day, an Everards Pub. No draught beer on. Food was good. Co run by an ex RN cook.
