  1. Yeah, but it's the age of the agreement that counts. You might have a cylinder that you've only had for a week, but if it's 7 years since you first started using Calor, you only get back the 25%.
  2. Quote from the link in Post 2 That'll go down well! How many will know the horn signals, anyway? Does this apply to rowing boats and paddleboards as well?

  7. Scottish Canals were using the Police on the only time I had to use it "out of hours" (a Saturday morning). Gave up eventually trying to explain the problem with a lift bridge in Edinburgh to a call handler in Inverness!

  9. Ditch the coolie hat and get a cover for the flue when stove not in use. Either a twin wall chimney or a separate inner which leads the drips to fall back down inside the flue. (Latter probably best as chimney looks in reasonable nick) Removing the cover and fitting the chimney takes seconds. The coolie hat allows drips to fall clear of the chimney, onto the roof where they mess up the paintwork. I don't know how often Tracy repaints the cabin sides, but the drips can mark it permanently in a matter of days.
  10. Not sure if they still do it, but Practical Boat Owner magazine used to run a series entitled "I learned from that". Would make for a good episode!
  11. Someone been grinding nearby and not cleared up the steel dust?
  12. I agree the fitting would still have to be visible.
  13. As far as I know, the ability to visually inspect all joints has always been a requirement. It’s a good idea in the case of bulkhead fittings; they seem more prone to minor leakage than most others. (Unless the original fitter used his head rather than the rule book and drilled through the fitting so that he could pass the pipe through it without a join 🙂)
  14. The ship should never be "under the control" of the pilot. It's "Master's Orders and Pilot's Advice". Vessel on Master’s orders and Pilot’s advice – Solent Marine Consultants (solentconsult.com)
