    Came from the steel age? The intresting bit would be which came first the ground that produced the soil that grew the tree as the tree didnt just grow from nothing or the rock that has to ore in it? I would win with my ton of wood, as would weigh far more than your ton of rock
  8. Nb Tay and the dream!

    Yes i know what you mean
  9. Nb Tay and the dream!

    If its anything like dane or towy you can remove most but not all! On a hot day with clothes down all the oil/tar seaps out the old wood. Danes was not painted so was still very much tar.
  10. Nb Tay and the dream!

    I did want tay but we prefered towy due to clothes as i always wanted a woodern josher now i got one, + tay had worng engine in for me and after having been on dane the hold is just a unusable area except stooring stuff
  11. Nb Tay and the dream!

    Nope i still have towy! Her in doors wouldnt let me buy tay (something about a wooden boat isnt sutable?) Tay would make the best fuel boat she was built for such use!

    Ill encorage you to buy one but can i borrow your leg before i do? So are all these steel boats there for scrap? Or are you just trying to raise the water level?

    Missed towy at the top of locks
  14. ENGINE LAVAL 108B

    I know all you need to know, it will bump you up and down go boom boom boom and make you spill your tea! And if your luck it will be like having a second wife, shell scream, shout and moan but thell be the one day it will listen and be a dream to be with!
  15. RN DM3 problems

    Youll prob find the same as mine the water pump valves will be marked from years of use! They need to be moved around abit. You may even find swapping the valves from the bilge pump is better, the clicking is the valve getting stuck and the other hitting it mine was a miss beat noise as it would get stuck randomly i swapped with bilge one as these had hardly any use so will make both pumps last another 80 years
