    I have always found Waterstones in any of the cities or towns that I have visited first rate, the staff have always found any book I have asked for or have let me know the ISBN information for the said book if they have not stocked it. Regards Alan
  7. I have just been on the Barns Brinkcraft webcam, there are a few boats waiting for the pilot, it looks like being a busy day. Regards Alan
  8. To Moor Or Not To Moor?

    Hi Peter, In my mind the demasting moorings are for all users that need to prepare themselves for passage through a bridge. Take for example the the pontoon below Somerleyton Bridge, this can be a pain to moor up on because of the tides, but there are times when many crews have had to wait over 30 minutes for the bridge to open and at other times finding the bridge is out of order and having to wait for low water. 10 minutes or so the skippers will go in a loop down river until the bridge opens. We can of course phone or radio the swing bridges, but if they have trains scheduled but you will have to wait. Regards Alan

  11. Wanted: Tardis

    I just measure in what ever is the nearest be it metric or imperial. Back in the day we always measured in thou with reference to the wire size or if we had to make specialised tools. Tim just go with what ever floats your boat. Hardwood always used to be priced in square inches. Regards Alan
  12. Silly Question But It's Friday...

    Hi Grace it always amazes me that a woman can walk into a room and all the other women will have sized her up, compared and more than likely taken a instant dislike to her, as you say meowwww
  13. Pump Out

    The general rule on most boats is if you have not eaten it nothing goes down the toilet other than cheap two ply toilet roll, the expensive three ply or quilted is regarded as contraband. I have to admit seeing some of the signs put on boats showing no razor blades etc always makes me think of sword swallowing acts Regards Alan
  14. Odd Bits

    Hello Karrass1, We always used to take with us a small frying pan, a wooden spatula and spoon, a sharp knife and a good tin opener (just watch Robin's video to understand why). Take a small torch in case you need one. Regards Alan
  15. Wanted, Person With Skills!

    Hi Doug, I did similar to you, also at school a chessboard in the center of a coffee table, a lot of work getting everything square with no gaps. It is very similar to making up laminated boards in the other topic. I like the thought of IBTC and maybe a project. Regards Alan
