    The Fat Ones are revolting.

    I wouldn't mind betting a very large proportion of members actually boat on rivers. I have been a member since 2009 and have lived aboard for almost 20 years and guess what I've never been on a canal , lots of rivers but never a canal Does this make me unfit to be a member of CWDF Phil

    The fact that Betty is still listed as a member bears testimony to her death as she is hardly in a position to change her status. For the record her other half, Dave, is not in too good a way healthwise let alone coping with the loss of Betty. Phil

    Well I would humbly suggest that in the last 2 years it has grown up considerably, we do have some very active lady members Patty Ann, Dyertribe, Trina (The Bearwood Boster) Metanoia and Betty Boo (now sadly deceased) and generally the language now is representative of a female membership. Phil

    Nothing changes here does it? A newbie is really made welcome by all the usual suspects, all totally uncalled for. Walks away shaking head. Phil

    Battery Management

    There are simple steps you can take to help things along. A decent PV array is worth having though it won't give you much in the winter but in summer it will lessen wear and tear on the domestics. I fitted a 20w panel dedicated to the starter only cost all in about £25.00. You mentioned using up to 40 lights, hopefully they are all LED, if they are not then seriously consider changing them Phil

    Testing a theory

    Well you get the wrong impression as the starter of this thread I have been a member of CWDF for years, check out my profile. Admittedly I don't post as much now but that's because of personal stuff getting in the way. If I'm bored I drop in on Thunderboat and as the thread title indicates I was just testing a theory. Phil

    Wee beasties

    The correct name is Thrips but they usually appear at grain harvest time as ears of wheat etc are there normal habitat, they are not known for biting only for irritating the life out of you by crawling all over you. A garden pest as they are sap suckers. At this time of year I would expect to be bothered by Midges. Phil

    Looking at the ears and large front paws maybe some cocker spaniel as well. He is a cracking dog. Phil
