  1. If you mean the sign just after the lift bridge, it refers to the entrance to the boat yard. The (big) winding hole is about 200 yds further on. Richard
  2. Try these; Inline filters FFR-CA5315 Midland Chandlers EA-094 Reisse 46100020 Fram CA5315 Beta 211-61831
  3. If you can be in Llangollen at the weekend, it is quieter, as most of the hire boats tend to be there mid-week. We spent two very pleasant days there earlier this month. If you want longer, it is possible to moor just east of the narrow section for free. Richard
  4. Plastic supermarket soup containers are good, and the lids seal properly. Richard
  5. I had exactly the same symptoms. Forward clutch shot. Suggest you contact Primrose Engineering (RWLP of this parish) for a rebuild. Richard
  6. So I was wondering about the cost of the PRM120 repair? New gearbox? PRM replacement. I'm minded to do the repair as its only done 290 hrs.

  7. Hi Ryeland, I have exactly the problem you had in 2013 with the PRM120 gearbox. The marina aren't especially helpful and waxed on about the benefits of swapping it for a PRM150.

  8. The tiller will just lift off the rudder, the bottom of the tiller is wedge shaped and fits into a wedge shaped socket on the top of the rudder. Richard
  9. It's an old Wolf, so not available now! I could get it to Chessington on Saturday if that's any good to you. Richard
  10. were broken down awaiting a new prm120' had the Sam issues as you

  11. I have a single speed 590rpm 240v drill which you are welcome to borrow. Where are you - I am near Gloucester. Richard
  12. The 'basin' is part of the old route of the canal. The corner was cut off as part of the straightening works. Richard
  13. I think you will find that they are much smaller than standard electrical accessories, and will not fit any standard box. Richard
  14. Don't forget to connect to the batteries just before you start the engine, and disconnect just after. If the alternator becomes disconnected while it it running it could be damaged, so make sure the connections are secure. I have a similar setup, and I have to start the generator with the boat engine running, then let it warm up before it will take over the load when the boat engine is stopped. Richard
  15. I got oxalic acid from eBay! Richard
