  1. Single Parent Hiring Boats

    I've never understood the Rangers out alone doing tasks on the rivers unlike a hirer get on and then off at next point, don't they have a lone working arrangment in place and if their out of mobile/radio range. It wil come in and they'll need more cash for it.

    From a early video doesn't the engine room have a fire system, I thought I saw the large red tank and the smaller pressure cyl which sets it off. Looked the same and what we use in comms rooms to remove oxygen. Better than the 180 bar cylinders we used to have. Could also put in a dead weight fire wire system, fusible links over the engines so around 70c the link melts and shuts the fuel valve off via the weight stopping flow to the engines. Then again on a boat with dual helm you'd be up top flat out to shore. Not silly prices.
  3. Sea Sickness - Oh Joy And Glee!

    Not done the ferrys etc but the fishing cobbles out of Brid as above we went out one afternoon and the sea had done a Blackpool and left the area so had to be taken out in the row boat, they were washing the tyres down from the last trip and ours was as bad. I've not been sea sick but my mate thought he could balance the boat to stop it rocking I left him. Even on the trip boat in Leeds we didn't spill a pint but number of people that was sick even before we'd set off. Later on it was the beer. Only help you got from me was take your glasses off and head over the side. If were ever out on a boat together and you feel ill DO NOT come to me, I can't cope I'll end up joining you.
