  5. True story. A few years ago late one night dark and cold and raining I tried to start engine and battery was flat. Checked starter batt no water in it. No water on board so knowing the battery would be knackered I topped it up with loads of canal water, nowt to lose. Jump started iirc from domestics so all fine. Boat started no problem next day and battery lasted several more months. Weird things batteries.

  8. I am always proud to state quite truthfuly that I cannot name one player of any football team or manager. I only know the names of such as Beckham and Rooney as they are perpetualy rammed down my throat in all forms of media. As for the eu some people actualy believe we joined it in 1973!! Jeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeezus
  9. Unusualy for me after over 30 years living aboard I find myself in a house a few days before the lockdown. I will probably stay here for the forseeable future. Its a proper detached house as in nearest house on this side of the road is 500 yards one direction and 2 miles in the other direction. I could self isolate no problem if I didnt need to go shopping lol but still would prefer to be on mi boat at my secure offside mooring. I just am so thankful i dont live in a flat or one of those housing estates with dozens of others who are all going stir crazy locked up with their kids. In fairness though I reckon many parents are doing a great job at present, like two of my daughters doing the home schooling thing whilst still doing their NHS jobs. They are not heroes and would hate anyone saying they were but isnt it nice to see them getting recognition for once instead of calling footballers hero's

  16. I think it was a sensible move by the government. Enforcing people either not to buy or making buying booze difficult always ends in tears, the USA found that to their cost between 1920 and 1933. People will still booze but illegal sales would come to the forefrunt and aggro could ensue. South Africa is going in to lockdown from midnight tonight and they are prohibiting alcohol sales for 3 months. It will end in tears.

  19. Dunno, thats why I was asking if anything has changed?? Thirty odd years ago its all there was and indeed where I found the advert for my first boat!! but over the years it seemed to be just repetition. Maybe its changed? I will have a look online whilst its still free ?
  20. Does waterways world ever print anything new? or is it the same old dressed up stuff from the past? How many times can for instance a boat review go into how a boat " swims " when they are all made from standard makers shells etc etc. Not looked at one for years.
