  1. I also have the "i" symbol, and I'm using Chrome on Windows10. As far as I know it has always been there. Don't think its anything to worry about.
  2. I have just tried to order a sheet of this for my cruiser stern deck. Their "Plus" version of this at 19 mm thickness and dense core, looked an attractive alternative to Hexagrip. Unfortunately it transpired that they have not actually made any yet! They do have their "Standard" version, but this has a very coarse core with lots of biggish voids, so you could not screw anything to it with any confidence. They also do not have any distributors, so their Wales farm is the only source of supply, with a £25 delivery cost for one sheet. My impression is that this is something of an amateur outfit at the moment. Hopefully they will grow and become more professional by the next time I need to renew my deckboards. In the meantime I have had to obtain an 8 x 4 sheet of 18 mm Hexagrip at £103.
  3. I stuck mine with Sikaflex, and has remained solidly stuck for past 18 months. Just to point out I am talking about the flexible type panels, rather than the rigid ones.
  4. If you owned a pub what would you call it? Home ? stained glass window Well clean it!
  5. I had exactly this problem a couple of months ago. Tried everything and finally bought a manual impact driver on Amazon for under £10. It worked first time as long as you hold it properly. Or maybe you already have an impact drill/driver, which should do the same thing. Anyway I highly recommend this tool - except I am now looking for more seized screws to justify buying it!!
  6. "My flue fell off - replacement required." Nasty! Think you'll need to consult a cosmetic surgeon for that sort of problem
  7. Ah, yes - that name rings a bell. I think I had some work done by him some time ago. Many thanks - another good prospect.
  8. I had one and found it did everything I expected very well. Mainly cleaning car and patio. It did develop a leak that I couldn't get at about 1 month before the 3 yr guarantee ran out. Their customer services replaced it immediately with the latest model, without question. Didn't even want the old one back. I really can't fault Lidls on this experience.
  9. No didn't miss it thanks. Eminently sensible thought, but as yet I haven't sorted a dock, as I hoped to speak to a surveyor first. Many thanks Colin. I will be following that suggestion up.
  10. Bump - or do I take it there are no surveyors left in this area?
  11. Yep. There's a whole Tribe of them. Certainly easier to find than surveyors!!
  12. Can anyone recommend a hull surveyor for steel nb on the western end of the K&A. Any personal experiences would be especially helpful. Ta.
  13. Must be the silly season - my daughter's little Tibetan terrier came running up the back steps, jumped onto my cruiser stern - except it wasn't there! I was down the engine 'ole with the deck boards open. Don't know who was most surprised, a very confused dog - or me, wondering how dogs could suddenly fall out of the sky. So between both stories I suppose we could conclude it was raining cats and dogs last week!
  14. The spray head is just a normal clip-in fitting supplied. Any other fitting could be used instead or nothing at all, as its end connector is the non-return type. I have not yet found a low pressure tap that prevents it working.
