  1. Where do you get a 1992 date from? I can't see a solar panel. Builder is given as Tovil Bridge Boatyard. I've never heard of them but google tells me Tovil Bridge is on the Medway. So my guess is they fitted out someone else's shell. An HR3 in a boat like this would be unusual, and somewhat on the large side for a boat of this type. I would have thought a SR3 or ST3 to be more likely.
  2. https://en.m.wikipedia.org/wiki/M40_minibus_crash OK, not a smart motorway, but the outcome was much the same.

  5. No personal expetience, but it has been said that most current washing wachine models requie a pure sine wave power input, so a modified sine wave inverter is unlikely to work.
  6. You exceeded the speed limit. What do you expect? The oft quoted tolerance is 10% + 2mph so 57 mph for a 50 limit. If you'd simply lifted your foot a bit and gone through at 55 you'd have been fine.
  7. And on the Huddersfield narrow. Lock 31W at Diggle:
  8. Serms a bit odd to me that the 10mm thick wear edge on a 2006 boat has been worn away only over a length of just 500mm either side. Possibly more of a defect from the originàl build?
  9. Can I suggest you try burning rocking horse manure, or perhaps dried unicorn.
  10. Damp in a wardrobe could be condensation resulting from a lack of air circulation.
  11. When Canary Wharf tower was nearly completed I got an opportunity for a site visit. We went up in an open wire mesh cage up the outside of the building up to the top-but-one floor. The lift operator opened the cage door and we stepped across through an unfitted window into the building. That involved stepping across a gap of about 10 inches and you could see straight down the side of the building all the way to ground level. That was enough for me! Once inside I hardly dared go near any of the windows, despite the splendid views, for fear of emulating Garry Hoy.
  12. There was a piece in Navvies a while back about unappealing canal names around the world. It did point out that the BCN has some less desirable names with "Chemical Arm" and "Gas Street Basin" (which I once heard described as "Gastric Basin"}, while across the pond they have the Dismal Swamp Canal.
  13. Not the first time this sort of thing has been reported here. And this is how it happens - video put out by West Midlands Police to discourage others. (From https://www.bbc.co.uk/news/uk-england-birmingham-19376682)
