  1. Come on boaters. She needs your help!
  2. As explained by Tony, it is probably worth rotating the bearing housing 90 deg. before replacing. It's a quick job and in my case allowed the bearing to be greased for the first time in X years!
  3. What do you call a convertible Skoda ? A skip. Why do Skoda's have a heated rear screen? To keep your hands warm when pushing it.
  4. Reminds me of the old communist days Prague joke about the "new" 16 valve Skoda. 8 in the engine and 8 in the radio.
  5. Craftinsure were OK with my sailaway. I increased the value a couple of times as I added stuff. Took me a lot longer than 9-12 months - more like 9-12 years!

  8. Makes you wonder if the people awarding these contracts have ever had a proper job.
  9. Apparently reporting to local authorities and even Public Health England wasn't in the contract with Deloitte.
  10. 80 positive tests reported instead of 944 is a bit off the mark but Starmer is "mistaken" according to Boris. Better get your boats into the middle of nowhere before all the other cities go into lock down.
  11. My semi trad stern has no permanent seats giving plenty of room for the family, bike, dog, mooring tackle, toolboxes etc. Also good access to the engine. It gives better protection from the weather than a cruiser stern but not as good as a trad. Depends if you are going to cruise regardless of the weather or like us only when it's nice!
  12. If I was looking for a sailaway again ( I am not) I would definitely consider this worth a look. If it was for my own use I would build to RCD but not bother with Declaration of Conformity unless I needed to sell it. Probably be academic after we have been out of the EU for a few years.
  13. I want one of them red lights. Alternative is to call the wife on the mobile and ask her to put it into neutral. Don't ask how I know.
