  1. Graham Boxer C&RT Head of Museums, and, like Richard Parry, a man who does get out and about on the network - I met him a week ago helping to work a pair down through Farmers Bridge, Ashted & Garrison Locks. springy
  2. Fuel on Shropshire Union

    True except that when you get down towards the last couple of inches, any rocking of the boat is more likely to disturb any gunk lying on the bottom which would not normally be in range of the take off pipe. Of course re-fueling is just as likely to stir up the bottom of a nearly empty tank. springy

  4. Carbon Monoxide Reminder from RYA

    No, In the Blood stream the CO binds more strongly with Haemoglobin than oxygen, this prevents the Haemoglobin from carrying oxygen around the body and so causes multiple organ damage. http://www.silentshadow.org/chemistry-and-science-behind-carbon-monoxide-poisoning.html springy

  6. Disillusioned

    If you need to licence a boat part way through a month consider buying a shorter term licence initially - I'm not sure for other lengths, but for a 47ft a 3 month licence without prompt payment discount followed by a 12 month with prompt payment actually works out about £3 month cheaper than the monthly equivalent of a 12 month without prompt payment discount, not a fortune and this also ignores the value of the "part month" lost but you've already lost that anyway. springy

  8. My water pump won't turn off!

    Could it be a sticking or misaligned valve in the pump - this could stop it reaching cut-out pressure Springy

  11. Duelling banjos

    Looks to me as if that is soft soldered. Just remake the joint with silver solder or braze and it will be OK. Springy

  15. water pump identification needed please

    Ford 4D & 6D (might be the same pump) were used in a wide variety of lorries (thames trader IIRC, amongst others), tractors, pumps, generators etc, so possibly one could be sourced or overhauled from that direction - vintage tractor parts suppliers would possibly be the best bet Springy
