  1. Backboiler question

    Is it necessary to have the loop after the last rad. Wouldn't the flow just go round the loop as it is the easiest route and bypass the last rad?
  2. Obscure connections to celebrities

    My mother once nursed Peter Cushing in hospital. My wife's late step-grandmother was a 4th or 5th generation descendant of Capability Brown.
  3. Still looking!

    Can a bow locker water tank really hold 300 gallons?
  4. If....

    If you say so.
  5. Wow Chubby, well said. Have a huge greeny.
  6. Anyone tried a kildwick compost loo?

    Now you're just being silly Jim. Surely nobody would abuse the NHS. I thought we already had a lot of sh!t boats on the system.
  7. Removing pumpout tank

    Was it pumped out and rinsed before disconnecting. Be careful with caustic soda. It can burn quite badly.
  8. Boat costs: is it just me, or...

    Yes, if there was a surplus of unsold new shells it would certainly slow production down. I just didn't understand why used prices rising would have slowed new shell building down. Maybe I am not getting it.
  9. Boat costs: is it just me, or...

    I don't understand what you mean Neil. Surely as prices for used boats get higher, it would make a new shell more attractive, especially if the cost for new shells had not kept up with inflated prices. Could you elaborate?
  10. Anyone tried a kildwick compost loo?

    Possibly done by the same folks who dump oil and boat rubbish in the hedgerows or by bridges for someone else to clear up. Possibly the same folks who might empty a cassette in the bushes to save a trip to the elsan. There are bad apples in every barrel Mike. Your view is blinkered. I see no cons with using a compost toilet system as it is intended to be used. Obviously a slightly blinkered view as well, as I don't have one yet.
  11. Anyone passed this boat on the L&L?

    I bet he watched a lot of Blue Peter as a child, and has a compost loo.
  12. Fly tipping...

    And a scrap merchants by the look of it.

    You missed this one DC. https://www.amazon.co.uk/Genuine-Boginabag-Refill-Pack-Bags/dp/B0085JPFEE/ref=cts_sp_1_vtp?pf_rd_m=A3P5ROKL5A1OLE&pf_rd_p=1212178027&pf_rd_r=HTZS0SQNE7EFFKHD8Y2G&pd_rd_wg=q0wHT&pf_rd_s=desktop-detail-softlines&pf_rd_t=40701&pd_rd_i=B0085JPFEE&pd_rd_w=fuVcu&pf_rd_i=desktop-detail-softlines&pd_rd_r=HTZS0SQNE7EFFKHD8Y2G&_encoding=UTF8
