    Wall carpeting

    Hi, We have used carpet on the roof and some walls on our boat for the last 20 years with no problem, we stick the carpet to the roof about a foot at a time leaving about 2 inch all round for final fittine and fixing when all the roof has been stuck, dont worry about any overspray onto the walls as it will wipe off with white spirit. Robin.

    To Dongle or not To Dongle

    Hi we use a Vodaphone dongle, cost me £29.00 with £10.00 loaded that was over 2 years ago we have onlt topped it up once you have to put £15.00 on each time you topup, all you have to do is log on every 120 days to keep it active and your credit is carried on, shmbo uses it when she is on the boat on her ovn and uses about £1.00 a day, only place it dosnt work is Horning.

  6. Hi, yes the large tank is the hydraqulic tank I think that they run on ATF ( automatic transmission fluid, you could give Richardsons a ring as they used to have a number of these in there fleet they called them Broadland Tango. Hope this helps, Robin

    Hi, I think this might be the simple answer but have you given Richardsons a ring, if it was one of theres then they will be able to tell you the colour and make. Robin.
  9. Hi, if you are going to use ply then use WBP ply, it stands for water and boil proof, and uses the same resin as marine ply but might have voids in the inter layers can be full of resin. Hope this helps, Robin.

    Engine Servicing

    I was always told in a 4 cylinder engine with 2 valves per cylinder you always used the count of 9, that is when no 1 valve is fully opened you set no 8 no 2 open set no 7 and so on, by open I mean the valve is open. Hopes this helps, Robin

    Which antifoul?

    Evening all, One tip that was given to me was if you wanted a blue antifoul then put a coat of red on first then 2 coats of the blue, then, when you see the red you know that its time to recoat but you still have a coat of antifoul there. Robin
