    Can anyone ID this Tachometer, please?

    As your dial face/bezel looks to be in pretty good nick have you considered swapping just the internals over ? Wouldnt be that hard if its a standard size.

    While no help whatsoever tracking the original one down-it does look very similar to my own which is this one and wouldnt look out of place assuming its the same size. https://goo.gl/images/mE9oAE You could also try asking the chaps at somewhere like Norfolk Yacht Agency who know loads about this sort of thing..

    Pump out manual and pump out station

    Is your pumpout fitting on the roof by any chance bigcol? Im guessing you are connecting the pump/vac into this to pump out?

    Vetus WP1213 water pump

    Have a look here Kendorr- https://rover.ebay.com/rover/0/0/0?mpre=https%3A%2F%2Fwww.ebay.com%2Fulk%2Fitm%2F142796026107 The pump on my own boat is higher pressure than I want but this doesnt matter as I use the same switch as above-the flow rate is the more important bit (well it is if you want a proper shower)

    Flue collar

    Im not sure if you mean the collar has cracked or just the sealant? If the collar is on say a Morso Squirrel or (like my stove) a Little Wenlock the collar is fastened to the top plate by a couple of machine screws. The flue can be a bit stubborn to shift out of the collar-I use whatever I have to hand. Small old chisels,hacksaw blades,multi tool etc to scrape,chip and remove as much fire cement as is possible while wiggling about.

    Dolly Question

    I have often covered deck fillers in leaky locks as a precaution but never even given the vent a thought. Top tip that..

    Vetus WP1213 water pump

    Bypass the built in pressure switch on the pump and use a seperate pressure switch like the Square D (adjustable) pressure switch. Its a bit of a faff to install it but once done its done and you avoid future problems with water pump dodgy pressure switches..

    Middle level mooring

    They was. New signs now say 48hr but with penalties if you overstay.

    Would Modifying My Anchor Be A BAD Idea, Please ?

    Thats an interesting point and the opposite to what I would assume-I always imagined dropping an anchor into a weed bed would make it work better! I have never personally had the need to drop an anchor but its useful to read comments from those that actually have.

    Middle level mooring

    Nope-missed the windows. Peterborough embankments Ok-have moored there many times. Sometimes go round the corner as if going to Dog in a Doublet if there is a fair on etc.. You can also moor further out at Awalton or Ferry Meadows if you are going through Stanground later or dont mind getting up early.

    Middle level mooring

    I got stones thrown at the boat by the local kids last weekend on the visitor moorings. Maybe a one off but would go to Foxs personally if leaving your boat. Friendly bunch in there too.

    First Frost

    I woke up this morning near Whilton on a boat with a non working stove and have to say it was a little on the cool side 😀
