  1. We have two cals, one next to the the kitchen taps and one next to the bathroom, 5 secs for the shower to run hot! One cal is 23' from the engine and the other is 30' away, no prob with engine heating them, neither has NRVs

  3. al I do agree we are born innocent but I regard that as a flaw, for us to survive it's a drawback but it is soon addressed.
  4. We leave ours plugged in to a socket and the external aerial, just switch the socket on and press the button, then connect from anywhere in the boat, saves having wire all over the shop. We do leave our inverter on 24/7 which does help with convenience, can't recall how much power it uses, runs from a 200ma power source but uses less than that I think. Ours cost about £60 IIRCC.

  9. I think your priority is first to install a weedhatch then see if you have a problem with attracting rubbish, try to make the hatch as large as possible, it's one prob solved by having WH but another prob if it's tight too work in.

  11. Or the original SPQR tappet adjuster. Looks the same though.
  12. Cars usually have overhead cams so utilise bucket and shim tappets which are almost maintenance free due to the large surface area. I have measured the clearance on a few of my past cars with bucket and shim and found they never needed adjusting even ones that had done 230k miles.
  13. I owned a Yamaha XS 750 triple, 120 deg spacing and no balance shaft, had a pleasant and low frequency vibration but have to say 4 cyl bikes I rode were much smoother (and blander)

  16. I have obviously upset some people with my posts and I do apologise to you and anyone who is personally involved, my intention was not to upset those involved so as a gesture I will stop posting on the forum for a while at least and let things calm down. My wife and I very much enjoyed our stay in Barnoldswick last year just before the tragic incident and I do hope not to be greeted negatively if and when we visit again. Yes you are right I can be a mouthy tw*t at times.

  18. On the cut it seems all engines big or small seem to use similar amounts of fuel (providing engines are not overly large or small and are in good tune) supporting the logic that it takes a certain amount of energy and therefore fuel to propel a boat at a certain speed.
  19. Stop beating round the bush Quoted text only edited
  20. There are some professionals who believe that everyone suffers some mental disorder in their lives, that it is in fact quite normal to become disordered to a certain extent as we proceed through childhood and adolescence and usually become steadily reordered as we enter middle and old age hopefully eventually achieving complete order and possibly some sort of nirvana. The logic being that as we are never fully physically healthy, always under attack from bacteria and viruses etc then it follows that mental health is similar. Just as sexuality can't be clearly divided into homosexual, heterosexual or bisexual so mental health can't be divided into those that are mentally healthy and those that are not. In other words we are all in the same boat
  21. Yes, at 16 bhp @ 1400rpm I was meaning the Isuzu 35, didn't read the post properly, 20 bhp sounds about right for the Beta 42 at full load @ 1400rpm.pm When I put our engine in gear at our tickover of 1200 rpm it drops nearly the same number of revs as if I just excite our alternator which absorbs about 6-7 bhp according to it's graph. on that basis I would say our prop absorbs about 6-7 bhp @ 1400rpm, pretty much in the same region of your estimate.
  22. Good points, I actually agree with some of that, a good observation I think, but just to make a point, he did stop to investigate, whether that was with the knowledge or not that he had hit a cyclist I can't really say, only he knows that. Also I don't agree that there are a lot of apologists, to me they are just expressing some doubt, I certainly am not apologising for anyone.
  23. Yes possible, I think that is what the manufacturers are quoting, it would explain the apparent high consumption of 2.4 lts @ 1400 rpm.
  24. I think that's twice you have stated you won't be posting on this subject any more and also said you wouldn't be responding to me. I think it is you that is a troll. So why your problem with the sentence passed?
