  2. Tv Licence

    Remember that it also funds 8 or so world class radio programme chanels, the online radio and tv content, i player, Welsh language programmes, Galic programmes, all the regional news and weather programmes. Money from the licence is subsidising broadband rollout to remote communities and the excellent Red Button for events as diverse as Glastonbury to Wimbledon to The Olympics. I am sure there is more but can't think anymore.
  3. Running Engines Are Not The Only Pest!

    Oh wonderful. The EDP as ever. "The incident happened near the beach at California Sands holiday park in Scratby on Monday afternoon. One girl was bitten on the leg and the other on the bottom and both were left with visible marks. Invisible marks are so difficult to find..... but seriously this is purporting to be a "dog attack" yet the skin wasn't broken. If it had been, the marks would have been described as "Injuries" The mother-of-one, who is on holiday with her eight-year-old daughter and friends, said the girls were running away from the dog, believed to be a black cockapoo, “screaming for their lives.” Really??? She added: “It circled them like a shark. Oh come off it They kept still but the dog kept going to bite. Sorry, do you mean "kept biting" or "kept going to bite but didn't" “I decided to rugby tackle the dog. errrm, how big did you say this dog was, and just how do you "rugby tackle" a dog anyway There were other little ones there and I was trying to protect the babies.” The holidaymaker said this would not have happened in Cambridge, where dogs have to be kept on leads. Yes, Cambridge is famous for it's long sandy beaches Police confirmed the dog’s owners had called the police to let them know their puppy had bitten two children. -------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------- Now don't get me wrong here, the dog was out of control and should not have been. It should have been on a lead, especially if it was indeed a "puppy". Whilst I have some sympathy for the mother, who was quite rightly, trying to assess what was going on and act accordingly, I can't help but feel she's "milking it a bit" I mean!! "Circled then like a shark". BUT MORE TO THE POINT, ..... Just how unpleasant does the EDP want to make the area seem? Stokesby, Beccles and now California Sands. If I were reading all this I'd sell my boat and buy a caravan in down town Harlem.

    Roy, A couple of points, firstly your old invertor is probably of an age where it doesn't cut out at low voltage, so if inadvertently left on it could do permanent damage to your batteries. I would think about getting the syndicate to update it for a modern efficient type. I use the Sterling 600W on my boat to power the TV and for charging the laptop etc. Because it is so efficient I tend to leave it on the whole time I'm onboard and moored up. Never seen any significant battery drain. It is also connected to 2 x 110Ah batteries. Secondly I'm really surprised your previous cpap tripped out a 300 watt invertor, especially if it was a pure sine wave unit. It's possible that the start up current drawn by the unit momentarily exceeded the rating of the invertor. It could be worth trying the Sterling 600W or trying to persuade the syndicate to replace the 1600W one with a new one from Sterling. You should be able to get the 1600 for around the £330 mark. https://www.beaconsandlightbars.co.uk/Sterling-Pro-Sine-wave-Inverter/

    Careful folks, some of those "draughts" might just be intentional ventilation. Blocking them all up might not be such a good idea.

  16. Ah, boats you grew up with. That was partly my point about Hawaii - although my parents never hired one Caribbeans and Bermudas were two a penny. I hope the DC30s stay in the fleet a while longer, they being from the same era.
