  1. Yes, thats a different method of mooring though not incorrect for the usual inland location. Boat shaped boats normaly put the eye over the mooring bollard and tie of back on board at bollards or a cleat for instance. I think the reason inland boaters dont put the eye over the bollard is its thought easier for scrotes to remove and set you adrift.
  2. I think Jo has been a bit unlucky with so called experts. Whilst she undoubtedly knows about boat shaped boats I think she is new to skip driving and inland waterways??
  3. Yes when I typed I though that. Proper boat owners are more likely to have an idea but even then I reckon some dont. Skip drivers simply dont come across such basic rope handling much of the time.
  4. Dont think shes in a marina at present? Gone orrff boating when I am not allowed to go out in my motorhome
  5. Most boaters will not know what you mean without Mr google Howard.
  6. Pubs are like any other business. there are good and bad garages and good and bad shoe shops etc etc. Undoubtedly the most important part of any pub business are the people front of house.

  9. Just come back across this lol. Said bro in law who always swore by his old knacker thump thump engine in his deep draughted "traditional" boat when he was a hobby boater came out with us last summer for a big trip to include amongst others the Thames. Suffice to say he recently sold the old knacker and now lives on a modern Cruiser stern with a fab modern beta at the back. It takes some longer than others but he got there in the end.
  10. Deffo O rings are better. They have two problems though. they leak after a time were they are mated up against the hull and indeed through the filler hole. The steel upright ones dont look as pretty but do a better maintenance free job. Ive had both types and whilst I dont buy a boat with the filler type in mind I am always pleased when its the steel threaded upright type 😁
  11. They are terrible bits of kit, built in water entry point. The upstand threaded type in steel with a steel threaded cap are far better innitt.
  12. I usualy state that we have five kids between us. We have been together over thirty years and never EVER does anyone in our mixed family use that dinosaur word " Step " I dont have any step kids nor does my wife, we just have five kids. To the letter of the law I would have two kids and my wife three but it never enters anyones conversation 👍 Edit to add that neither fo us have any " Step " grandkids, we just have nine grandkids, end of. Eldest sprog is 49 and youngest grandchild is 6 so we have a hell of a spread innitt 😁
