  1. Has anyone lit their stove yet?

    Chimney on and stove lit.
  2. Dual lip seals

    Thanks for that I will give them a try.
  3. Dual lip seals

    I know but it would be nice to know if the seals are available separately when it ever does become a problem.
  4. Dual lip seals

    Yes I keep it well greased . The two lip seals are in the end housing where you put the grease into. The grease goes in between the two seals. I will move the shaft a little while I'm replacing the seals. At the moment I,m only getting a few drips per trip but I expect that to increase with time. cheers
  5. Dual lip seals

    I want to replace the two dual lip seals in my vetus stern gear, the vetus distributors only sell the seals in the housing( about the £90). Does anyone know where I can source the seals separately. Thanks
  6. Watch Out Watch Out There's a Grumpy Triker About...!

    Congratulations ; There are plenty of very good ex hire boats out there. They all tend to have cruiser sterns and pump out loos both plusses in my book. A big plus is they are uncomplicated .... unlike some of the boats being built today. Enjoy
  7. Who goes first? - question on etiquette

    It always makes me smile when it is obviously your bridge hole, you see the bow wave of the approaching boat increase and then go into full screaming reverse when they see your bow in the hole.
  8. Dunchurch pools marina coming along

    Nice wide berths. Widebeam's are going to get awfully scratched, parts of the north oxford are only wide enough for a skinny boat with all the offside vegetation.
  9. Mastervolt combi 12/2500-100 fault

    'AC auxiliary supply defect' Not sure what caused the fault but may of been caused by a spike in the shore supply from the marina. Keith said this is becoming a problem at some marinas with a lot of residential moorers ramp up the voltage to keep up with demand.
  10. Mastervolt combi 12/2500-100 fault

    I'm with you on that Phil. If you can't live without an inverter don't get a combi.
  11. Mastervolt combi 12/2500-100 fault

    Well thats the thing SA we didn't miss it that much. We only use it for the washing machine and charging a lap top & radio. Popping in to marinas takes care of the laundry and pubs dont mind me plugging the laptop in for an hour. I believe my next boat will be inverterless.
  12. Mastervolt combi 12/2500-100 fault

    The good news is that I have the combi inverter back as is working as should. Mastervolt charge a flat rate £458. Turn around is ten days from receipt in Holland(Thats on their web page). Not so good is it took 7 weeks to get the thing back not the 2/3 I was expecting. I don't have any more info about why the delay.
  13. A Question To Ponder

    Maybe every time it uses a lock.
  14. First signs of worn drive plates?

    I had an engine mount failure on the Thames. My first thought when I heard the noise it was making was that the gearbox had broken.
  15. I WANT ONE !!!!

    A shallow pound/reach beater!
