  1. We followed the chart and ended up on the shoal just after Torksey. The Sissons chart showed a red line on where to go, but on this chart showed a red line to go to starboard on the one page and on the other page go to port. Fortunately no damage was done and i got to to have a good look at the hull. After contacting a Mr Took who issued the chart i was informed that the new charts will have photographs as well as the line to take. This chart was bought at Newark marina and should now be replenished with the new ones. Some good came out of it as the couple living in one of the houses just beyo
  2. We have stayed at Bulls Bridge to do shopping and stayed overnight without any problems. When we came off the Thames at Brentford we always made for the Hanwell flight to moor overnight and enjoy the excellent meals at the Fox Inn which is a short walk away. The last time we tried to moor at Willowbridge it was full, but the other times we moored there was fine.
  3. We went onto the Lancaster via the Ribble link and wished we had booked for a longer period, it was very enjoyable although shallow in some places. As always with boating care must be taken and when on the rivers make sure you stay in the channel. An elderly couple didn't take the care that was needed on the return trip and ended up being beached, fortunately we managed to drag them off with some difficulty. Didn't even get a thank you, only a "well that's your good deed for the day". Suppose it takes all sorts.
  4. I think the fuel boat is Chris Iddon who operates from Staines, tel no +447921694287.
  5. A similar thing happened to me on my TR500 Suzuki in the paddock at Brands. After checking and re-checking ignition timing i made sure that i always put it in gear and pushed so that the engine was in forward motion, but i forgot to mention this to the new owner when i sold it and the poor sod who always pulled it back over top dead centre went in reverse on the start at Snetterton.

  7. Respatex is a quality product, not cheap and comes in various shades and designs.
  8. I noticed you have cut the rear of the units to allow them to go right back to the side. Just a reminder this is not possible to do to any appliances that you maybe fitting. How do i know ?
  9. We joined the St Pancras club on their Bow Locks and Thames one year and enjoyed it, good organisation.
  10. The only time i switched on our Sterling charger was when on shoreline or generator, the rest of the time it had to be switched off or it would drain the batteries. I am not sure if this is the way it was meant to be, but it was the only way it worked for me, other than that no problems with charger after 5 years live aboard. Perhaps this could be your problem.
  11. I used to use a large enough plastic sandwich box to drain the gearbox oil then press on the lid to lift from underneath.
