  1. Engine Power Loss Issues - Any advice?

    I was going to reply but i am loosing the will to live, you have answered your own problem. A clue:- fuel filter, but keep it to yourself.
  2. Does anyone know this ice breaker location

    Well i can see two horses when you zoom in.
  3. Wood burning stoves to be banned in London

    I was always lead to believe it was boats in transit that were exempt, a bit like a drinks licence on a trip boat, trains etc, when it is underway, it is not required.
  4. Cooling fins

    I like the extra cold start device, never seen one of them on a Lister before.
  5. Vintage engine guides for the uninitiated

    Never read so much praise in one hit for Bukh, I am one of the first on the UK canals with a 2G105, this year its 38 years old, not vintage but it will be, (unlike me, 73 years old tomorrow.
  6. Remove pump out

    You could try and trace the person who dumped the one at Marston Junction last year, he or she managed it without removing the bowl.
  7. Rubbish disposal marsworth area

    Had to wait to fill up with water while one of the houses were watering their garden and filling a paddling pool in June.

    If you you like Gin, this is the place (Palace) to be,Madam Barlow will be at her dispensary, also the commentators from Rickmansworth Tug of War will be in attendance, not a thing to miss.
  9. Ashby Canal during Shackerstone Festival week

    Been to the last three Shackerstone festivals, no problems for passing boats, moorings in the close vicinity are scarce but not a long walk to festival site or railway (a must).
  10. What features drives boat prices

    Well i've had sixty years of exhaust in my face from Bolinders, Seffles Listers and for the last thirty eight years a Bush 2G105, no problems at 73 years old. however I have never smoked cigarettes.
  11. Alternator light

    The "D" is on the battery symbol below the light.
  12. list of yards with cranes

    Been and seen it today as they were rigging it, it is a monster, if it will fit the canal it will lift it. I told told them they could lift a pair out together with it.
  13. Wide beam cruises from sawley

    You could buy a map
  14. Hospital silencer question

    As Tony says, phone TW Marine at Furness Vale 01663745757 and speak to my son Nick.
