  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
  16. Did a search on here and the Swan got zero stars in July 2011. So an improvement then.
  17. I remember the good old days. The metalwork teacher would fasten your tie in the vice if you were naughty. Had to stay there until he released you. Teachers a bit soft these days.
  18. I was good at metalwork at school. Other subjects boring. Staffordshire Live spelt it hygeine as well ! Maybe I can be a journalist.
  19. Reported in local press. Usual issues - storage of raw meat, rats, mouse droppings etc.
  20. You could try telling them that you didn’t actually instruct them to cancel the policy. A point of law like this could keep solicitors and barristers happy for weeks.
  21. Did you cancel the insurance or did they? Worth reading the small print.
  22. Correct Nottingham would be “The pair wor sat on their boats at Trent Bridge sorry, when it wor the victim what wor abusive to Neil Brice.” Obviously errors in translation.
  23. I think it is black pearl granite not marble. Used it for worktops in my kitchen. One of the most impressive stove installations that I have seen. What a pity to remove the best part of it.
  24. Langley Mill boatyard. Top notch job. Stagedamager is the man.
