  1. I liked mine.......but had a second satellite tuner...... for when I couldn't get onto Astra for Sky. Used to tune Atlantasat.....Eutelsat and six other satellites.... I once watched the Eurovision song contest in Albanian. ! How sad was that !!!!
  2. I had oil in the coolant on my Beta 43. In my case the cooling for the PRM160 gearbox fluid (oil)..went into a brass tank which was inside the top coolant tank on the engine...a common situation. What happens is that your engine coolant tank is only half full and thus there is a ',tide line' on the brass gearbox coolant tank. Over time..it corrodes along that line. My engineer did source another tank. On more recent models..you can blank that off and have external cooling.

  4. Easy water level gauge. If it goes up my nose....it's full. ??
  5. There's a very low level fuse (1 amp) up near the on off switch. I should check that..

  8. I use a plastic collader....glued some magnets around the side...and put it inside one of those net filter bags that you use for making wine I then dropped this into the tank over the outlet hose so that all the larger fragments don't get drawn through the pump. The magnets hold it in place.

  10. You need a barometer. You can then tap it repeatedly and annoy the wife.....who says " if you want to know the weather..just look out the Bloody window !.?
  11. ?? It is a surface vessel. He wouldn't get far if he tried to "dive...dive...dive".. I think......he went bankrupt....? I saw it for real some years back...moored at Botany mills . Very sinister.

  13. Couldn't you just buy one for a tenner,?
  14. I like that reply ? I've often wondered why people on this site...do stuff like that ? After all...in my opinion ( warning... Bob's opinions may vary from description)... It's all about cruising along looking at beautiful scenery. Having said that...blokes always like to tinker and change/Invent stuff. Often when you view boats they have some daft but "essential" thing strapped onto them..the product of much boredom and winter blues. A book full of graphs about how much sun the solar panels gathered on Christmas day...or some weird and wonderful combination of "must haves" strapped onto the alternator... For me....I don't do anything other than change oil and filters and cruise through some of the most beautiful parts of England. My gadget-less boat won't be worth any less than the one with its own spreadsheet ???
