  1. Boats tied nose to tail, only one engine to pull all in. Quite doable. Bod
  2. We went decimal/metric in 1971. Almost 2 generations ago, now go out to buy a purely metric retractable tape measure! I have a tool catalogue of that era, which lists metric only tapes, try finding one now. Strangly, one I have is modern American, both in manufacture, and sale. Bod
  3. Do you have a plastic tray beneath the ice box? Does this tray have a flap at the back? Is this flap tipped forward? Ours gets a lot colder with this flap forward, laying inside the tray. This allows the cold air to fall from the ice box, into the rest of the fridge. Bod
  4. Am I right in thinking that when BW, was transformed into C&RT, the government washed their hands of the waterways, save for a reducing financial contribution. Therefore no ministerial evolvement is now possible. Bod
  5. I'm afraid your asking, "How long is a bit of string?" As Alan has said, more information is needed, before any sort of answer can be given. Bod
  6. They tried! But the Bylaws said different. So now we are asked to print out our own licences to display. Bod
  7. I don't know which is worse.....this conversation.....or me knowing what it's about! Bod
  8. When attempting to start, does the part of the camshaft that the sensor reads, actually go around? Broken camshaft? Bod
  9. The two new batteries, need a repolish. Bod
  10. Will there be enough room above the tank to actually get the old element out, new element in? Bod
  11. http://www.marilynstowe.co.uk/2011/12/19/death-and-the-unmarried-couple-what-happens-to-the-house/ Scroll down to "So what are her options" Inheritance Provision for Family and Dependents Act 1975 May well have the answer. The partner makes a claim for financial provision. Bod
  12. What more could C&RT be doing? https://canalrivertrust.org.uk/enjoy-the-waterways/boating/getting-afloat/renting-a-boat-to-live-on The warnings are there. Bod
  13. The lesson in that, is read, and understand the contract before signing. Bod
