    Oh dear

    Yes we should of course look before stepping backwards off the boat if only to avoid the dog poo. But we did the Erewash last year and coming up to and leaving locks was a nightmare - constantly having to step aside for a bike while trying to persuade the boat to do what it was told. Maybe the signs should clearly say that walkers and boaters have priority and bikes should stop until the path is clear.

    Oh dear

    I usually step off backwards holding the centre rope and watching the boat blowing around in the wind. Nearly got hit by a cyclist a few days ago. Just seen the CRT notice that the towpath where I moor is being resurfaced so they can go even faster.
  3. Could you replace the non latching relays with latching relays? These only take current when actually opening or closing. Have to do a search to see what is available.
  4. North of Potter Heigham is the best part of the Broads. Pity we couldn't get through last time - it was a long time ago.
  5. I have the socket inside the boat and the cable enters through the large gap (high level vent?) between the door and the rear hatch. I worried about the cable being damaged but it also runs over the bows, along the roof, over the bike, etc. Actually since installing solar I have no real need for shorepower.
  6. If you search this site for gas safety certificate you will see that getting one is not a bss requirement for a private leisure boat . It is good good practice but your examiner is wrong.

  8. Come on boaters. She needs your help!
  9. 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!
  10. 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.
  11. Reminds me of the old communist days Prague joke about the "new" 16 valve Skoda. 8 in the engine and 8 in the radio.
  12. 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!
