  1. Muddlewhich

    Middlewich Boats has Elsan disposal for £1 fee
  2. Oil Boat

    Many thanks MHS, just what I was looking for. He does dispose of old oil, but it is none too clear whether this is a free service to boaters, although I do get the impression that it is. There is an email address on his website, so an enquiry should clarify.
  3. Oil Boat

    Does anyone happen to know the website address of the Oil Boat, the one that collects old used oil. Passed him on the B'ham & Fazeley a few days ago, but didn't make a note of the website. Googling turns up nothing either.
  4. Where can I get electrical plugs like these?

    Maplin. As with most Maplin stuff, relatively expensive, but if desperate ....
  5. -low-latency Bow camera to screen at stern to use to see what's going on 70' ahead in real time ^^^ this Only reasonable idea I could come up with is a hardwired 'reversing' camera. Wireless far too laggy.
  6. Middlewich fest

    Left there last Thursday and it was nose to tail above King's Lock. Big Lock to Town Bridge already full of traders.
  7. Is Birmingham going downhill as a destination?....

    Never had any problems at Merry Hill, Birmingham, or Bumble Hole last summer. It did strike me as being a good idea though to moor on the offside at Bumble Hole if there was room, as it was quieter/safer away from the surprising amount of pedestrian traffic on the towpath. ...except in 2010 when the visitor centre was subjected to an arson attack!
  8. * FOUND * Stolen Boat - from Mercia Marina

    Checked all boats in Birmingham centre from St. Vincents bridge to Cambrian Wharf, through Gas Street to Granville Street bridge. Sherborne Wharf have a flyer and are keeping a lookout. Will check all passing boats, as I'm here for a while.
  9. It's a Sterling, but not as we know it.

    Thanks for trying Tony. A real puzzler. It may well be last resort to phone Sterling, and as you say hope he doesn't answer, or that is is in an uncharacteristically good mood.
  10. It's a Sterling, but not as we know it.

    Yes. Set to FUNC0 factory default. Luckily these are suitable settings, but it is frustrating that I cannot check the individual setting are OK.
  11. It's a Sterling, but not as we know it.

    Yes. It's almost as if the Function access is locked out, bar FUNC5.
  12. It's a Sterling, but not as we know it.

    Tony, pressing FUNC for two secs goes straight to FUNC5, and doesn't let me access the other parameters. Very puzzling.
  13. It's a Sterling, but not as we know it.

    I too have the same Invertek Inverter. However, there is one problem I have , resulting in much head-scratching and have yet to solve. I know it will turn out to be obvious, but if someone has the solution, would be most grateful. From the manual: On P14 - System Adjustments - to access the parameters "Push the pad marked FUNC (function) for 2 seconds and use up/down keys to scroll through the functions. (The display will show Fn00 up to Fn09 )". However, on P17 - Disabling Functions - If you press the “FUNC” button for more than 2 seconds you can have access to the different possibilities shown in the following diagram ... Pressing FUNC button for 2 seconds does perform as described on P17 (Fnc0, Fnc1, Fnc2, Fnc3), but I have yet to find how to access the System Adjustments menus described on P14. Anyone know the answer? Pete

    Plumbers Epoxy putty. £3 at Toolstation
  15. 12 volt phone charging

    I suspect you are referring to a Clipsal type plug, more usually found in caravans. You will need to adapt it to a cigarette lighter socket, and then a usb adapter to reduce the 12v to 5v for your phone. http://www.ebay.co.uk/itm/ADAPT-IT-A-CIGAR-SOCKET-TO-SMALL-W4-TYPE-12V-10AMP-2-PIN-PLUG-CARAVAN-MOTORHOME/370599323251?_trksid=p2047675.c100005.m1851&_trkparms=aid%3D222007%26algo%3DSIC.MBE%26ao%3D1%26asc%3D35308%26meid%3Da9d65d8f05ab46f499f40d24057dd13a%26pid%3D100005%26rk%3D4%26rkt%3D6%26mehot%3Dpp%26sd%3D321643711482 http://www.ebay.co.uk/itm/141732362978?_trksid=p2057872.m2749.l2649&var=440853090413&ssPageName=STRK%3AMEBIDX%3AIT
