  1. OR........ https://www.cef.co.uk/catalogue/products/2904936-1-0mm-bs6195-coil-lead-type-4a-cut-length-sold-by-the-mtr
  2. sorry, unclear..........should read Norton Canes Boatbuilders at the old SM Hudson yard/Glascote Basin
  3. Nooo! it's 0161-643 3652! The 01827 311317 number is in Tamworth & belongs Norton Canes + old SM Hudson yard
  4. https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=vpyaDSSydkA
  5. Surely tha chrome nut(s) screws down til the trim touches the wall?
  6. Put https://threebzboats.wixsite.com/threebzboats in Polesworth on your list. John Bird used to work for Steve Hudson as the 'Bows' man! No connection except he overplated my own boat and I would have had him build me a new boat before ill health stopped us boating ☹️
  7. You are proposing to spend a lot of money. You have considered your licence, insurance, mooring and BSC costs haven't you?
  8. Altered brightness & contrast. Definitely something Red Owl. Trying to fit in something like 'Bright' but not enough letters.?

  10. If you are non-residential, then Tamworth Cruising Club could accomodate you/your boat. At the rear of the site is a container storage facility!!
  11. No, not at all! .....Reminder to (newbie) members to acknowledge sentiment of sign, wave, smile or (for the ignoramus, as I do, show my back!)
  12. She has a tiny leak from the stbd diesel tank (built into the swim) into the cabin bilge 'under' the overplating. Caused by removing a repair patch covering porous steel, before the overplate, without first dealing with the weep present. I was going to fit plastic tanks, but easier I think to cut/weld repair. This plus OHs failing health which gave me little opportunity to get work done. Hoping this year will see this job done so refit can restart. Once watertight, new mahogany handrails, paint and BSCd etc is likely to see her on brokerage early-mid 2019 ..8^(
  13. It's an old sign that has sadly become meaningless. You wouldn't believe the amount of boats (eyes forrard and caps on backwards) that speed through that bridge'ole only to encounter Glascote locks when rounding the bend. I WILL bring it up with Committee and add a reminder to the next newsletter. There's no excuse, hopefully things will change. Thanks for the heads-up.
  14. Correction to email address, now:-tamworthcruisingclub@gmail.com. Apologies if anyone has tried the old address (accessing it was a faff) so we elected to change it so that the secretary (whoever that would be at the time) could get access from anywhere!! MOORING RATES VERY COMPETETIVE
  15. Try Tom Hayes on 07860568271. He is based in Lichfield
  16. I used a WhirlAway, an american attachment for an angle grinder, but still a scabbler. It removed the thick, hardened bitumen, but just skated over the surface of a single layer. (possibly as a needle gun chips away at thickened old paint or rust, but ineffective on thin layers) - At no time did it clog, but it didn't like the odd spots of weld or splatter that it found!
  17. I used a scabbler, which removed the thickest, hardened coating, but not everything. The resulting finish was a lot less 'moonscape' You WILL need ear defenders, gloves and eye protection!

  23. Quinton Hazell FRA120 from the application list it appears to be prominently used on Ford Sierras/Granadas. Question remains - Is it the alternator that has died, or the Lucas regulator? http://www.yoyopart.com/oem/6802575/quintonhazell-fra120.html
