  1. How common is this problem ? Why don’t the prop builders test them in a tank or something ?
  2. Thanks for the advice. Turning into a warranty claim and probably will change the prop.
  3. Had a new 17 x 11 prop fitted a week ago when the boat was in for blacking. Also had a new cup fitted to the skeg. First trip out today and the prop howls between 1200 and 1400 rpm (engine speed). It is so loud it is unbelievable. Old prop was 17 x 12 which was a little bit over propped, and had a couple of dings but was completely quiet. I now wish I had never changed it. Any suggestions apart from a new prop?

  5. Made my sailaway 15 years ago. Good fabricators using 10,6,5 plate. Not sure if the same people are there but was a good experience at the time.

  9. If OP registers for VAT he will have to pay it and add it to the rental. OK if you rent to a VAT registered company as they can reclaim it but not for private renters.
  10. Eyup, Brian Blesssed was / is president of the Friends of Cromford canal. He is erudite and sophisticated just like us lot up here at the end of the Erewash.
  11. Is it a live aboard ?
  12. Fuse is likely to be high capacity. Better in a fuse box than lying on top of the battery bank or hanging in mid air.
  13. Only if it’s a Hudson
  14. I used to love the street food when working in India and never had a problem. Local Indian staff wouldn’t join me because they would be off work for a couple days afterwards.
  15. 99 find the golden screw
