  2. The thread is about the weight of a narrow boat which is what I thought you were replying to. However, if you are bringing in a scenario where the reach of the crane is required to handle lifting the boat over others to reach the water or distance to the water from the quay for example then you are correct that the further the reach the greater the crane capacity to handle that reach safely and within the load capability of the crane. The load on the cable is the same it is just a matter of the capacity of the crane at varying reaches and whether it is sufficient for the situation. Roger
  3. As far as the weight reading is concerned. Yes, you are correct that the balance of the crane and the load capability of the crane is another consideration but the comment was about the weight reading and whether the moment would affect the reading. Roger
  4. Not necessarily the case if the strain gauge is reading the lift cable tension, then it doesn't matter how far out the jib is angled. Roger

  7. Apologies, only just spotted this thread, but was speaking to Danny Williamson on the phone yesterday (he did the 4LK that I had in a Norton Canes nb of mine some years ago) and his Gardner Facebook group page is titled Gardner Oil Engines. 128 members presently. Roger
  8. Not at all, it is the only evidential based method of judging the reality of your/any such assertion. Would you convict in a court on someone's opinion without evidence? Roger
  9. Agreed. Early Springers had chined base plates (not sure about later ones). The theory at the time was that it gave some stiffness to the base plate because Springer used thin steel plate which would not have been so suitable for a flat base plate width. Roger
  10. That's an interesting assertion but, to be viable as evidence, you would need to log the joining date, what threads they viewed and when they left the forum to be able to use that as solid evidence. Have you done that? The opinion of a mate down the pub is not significant in statistical terms of course. The other method would be to conduct a leaving members survey as to the reasons for their departure, relatively normal business practice but probably not conducted on this forum. Roger
  11. And yet you contribute very regularly to the Brexit thread? Hhmmm, just ignore if you don't like the discussion. Roger

  14. Passive regeneration occurs if the DPF is mounted close enough to the engine and has sufficient time periods at adequate engine power requirement to allow the regen to happen. For a lot of canal boat engines running at low load and with interruptions due to possible lock usage or flights I doubt that the regen conditions would be met easily. Another risk is that when the regen occurs the temperature is huge (cars advised not to park on a field with long grass after a regen for example) so would one want a device that hot in your engine room/bay? Roger
  15. Not sure how many and where but this: https://www.jetts.co.uk has opened near me and I know that it is 24 hour (not sure if it is a key pad or how you open the door 24 hours) and I know that it is franchised quite a lot in the UK. Might be worth looking at the website and making some enquiries. The site seems to indicate 250 gyms (whether that is bullshit and covers all over the world I have no idea) and no lock in contracts.
