  1. Hi Mick, I recognise your boat from the marina where mine was moored when i bought it. You seem to be a day behind me - I was a bit below Widewater on Friday night (where i was warned of/invited to the rave by 'concrete' tony) & just up from cassio bridge lock last night. You'll probably pass me in Berkhamsted where i'll be staying for a few nights. Give us a wave as you pass or come knocking if you fancy stopping for a beer. I'm on 'Innisfree' (blue & red) Blanche (not retired just ermm taking a year off)
  2. thanks for the clarification wotever & RLWP

  6. Thanks denboy, no I'm not sure, i realise thats a possibility as well. I recently refilled the stern greaser (with help from the thread on it here) and was wondering if I'd not done it properly. Ah....Indeed i have (well deduced). I will 'do greasing' in the mornings only before starting the engine - Thanks Bottle Thanks magpie_p - that seems good advice. I shall leave the weed hatch alone for now, only grease when the engine is cold & continue to monitor the situation. This forum is brilliant - so many helpful people
  7. ok, thanks Phil. Decided not to test tonight due to proximity of neighbours & slack mooring ropes I shall see if my visitor tomorrow fancies crouching on the back (under where the tiller swings) watching the weed hatch while I sit on the roof to drive. And thanks for this ditchcrawler that's exactly the kind of comprehensive advice I like.
  8. THanks for your replies all I've just realised i can do this when moored cant i. I was thinking I would have to be moving to test it which would be difficult with the step lifted up. I'll do it now while there's still light
  9. Ah..but I may have water ingressing through the seal. I dried out the engine bilge last week & now there is water in it again. Only a little but I'm trying to find out where it could be coming from (and starting with the easy things)
  10. Hello, I've been on my 1st boat for the last few weeks, pottering about the lower GU waiting for licence to arrive & getting used to doing things single handed and feeling chuffed to bits with it all. I've found this forum very useful (I know nothing about engines etc but am learning as i go along) but i have very basic question.. this is my weed hatch cover The stuff that creates the seal looks somewhat flat and knackered and I'm thinking i should probably replace it Does it look like it needs replacing? What is it called? Where can i buy it? What type of glue should i use to stick the new stuff on? sorry for asking such a simple thing; more difficult questions will follow...
