    Duckhams

    Duckham's was my oil of choice for my motorcycles back in the day. A bit of Castrol R in the petrol tank too made for a great smell when going down the road!
  2. I was taught to do it that way back in the 60's. Something that Iv'e never forgotten. You do need good timing though........
  3. I believe that most cars now come with an anti-syphoning device fitted as standard. My present car does and the previous 2 also did. Ford by-the-way. Edited to say that we posted at the same time!
  4. Hi Colin. I'm not having a 'go' at you but those who just tie up without any thought that someone else may be coming later to moor there too. In the photo you can see this dingy who you may recognise, tied with the bow rope only which allowed it swing a full 180deg and not by a ladder. We were there from midday until around 11.00hrs the following day and no-one came near it. It effectively took up an extra boat length because of that. The other dingy's forward of the photo went back to the island side around 18.00hrs(as near as dammit) having stopped anyone other than a dingy from mooring there. I'm 72..ish and could have got in or out of those boats at anytime during the day without the ladders. As to that notice, does it mean those dingy's are included too? On a lighter note....... Lady Linda, is that the one that used to belong to Jono on this forum a few years ago? I did notice it there but with no internet signal I couldn't find who owned her.
  5. We did Colin. We watched them row/paddleboard style over and just tie up in the middle of large spaces instead of leaving room for visiting boats. It's not the BA's fault nor the Council's, they could have tied up with more respect for other potential visitors. Not the way to get people on your side. We did try to work out which was your boat to hopefully have a chat.
  6. Regarding 'The Green'.........We moored there 3 weeks ago but did find it strictly hard work due to the amount of dingy's tied to the bank and they were all over the place leaving very little room to moor up. One was even chained and had a lock fitted despite the fact that it appeared not to have been moved in a long time. I thought that there was supposed to be a set area for the dingy's? Sorry for going off track but felt it needed saying.
  7. Plastimo dingy for sale due to lack of use. Comes complete with 2 oars, Electric outboard, battery + box and the original bag it came in.(can be seen in the photo) plus an electric inflater. Selling on behalf of my son. Offers please by PM preferably. (He needs it gone!) All monies will be given to charity.
  8. Couldn't agree more. John wasn't asking about syndicate boats.
  9. The centre is fixed I believe. Belongs to a friend of mine.
  10. Bill is a friend of mine and can confirm that he's had a few health issues. More than that I won't say, it's for him to fill in the blanks if he so wishes. Only a few short years ago, a nearby boatyard did consider buying one or two to refurbish and add to their hire fleet. Sadly this never happened.
  11. here are the photo's of those LED's!!
  12. All I can say on this subject is buy from someone who knows about them! EG. Brian Wards or Boulters for instance. I bought some off the interweb as they were described as 'marine'. After a few nights they started to flicker and when I took one out it was brown on the circuit board and HOT! In my view it could have caused a fire. I then went to Boulters and bought a whole new set. Cost a little more but never had a problem again. I'll post a photo later of the bulb.
