  1. Anyone who masters Kitchin gear can call himself a helmsman ! had experience of them in the RN they could turn a grown man into a jibbering wreck !
  2. The highest death toll in Europe still rising, slowest to react to the pandemic, little or no PPE in place, ministers and advisors disregarding their own advice, contradicting and confusing daily press conferences, and that's a good job ? Its a good job Piers Morgan isn't on this forum !
  3. It can be argued that "following the science " is why the UK is three weeks behind most countries in terms of recovery. It has been a convenient excuse for this inept governments handling of the pandemic. You are right Ray in that there are scientists not happy with the easing of lockdown, but I suspect there are many more who have given approval or it would not be happening , as we have been told many many times the government follow scientific advice
  4. I absolutely agree that the decisions and choices we make in life effect the quality of life we live, but, ultimately ................ PS I hope you live as long as you want to, and you're in heaven half an hour before the Devil knows you're dead.
  5. I did say it was my opinion for what its worth. Stay Safe
  6. This has been a very interesting thread with varied opinions, my opinion for what its worth is that life is mapped out for you from the day you are born, if you have a full fridge, clothes on your back, a roof over your head and a place to sleep, you are wealthier than 75% of the worlds population. we are very lucky to have been given a ticket that has not expired yet, but it will, and when your God says its time, you're going. You can approach your gate latches wearing welders mask and gloves if you want..........
  7. I am not suggesting the government makes a rule for me, I am merely suggesting that at some point " common sense ' has to come into play.
  8. Only for some unfortunately, I live 200 miles from my boat, I could visit, work all day on it, then drive home, tired and a danger to myself and other road users, but apparently this is safer than me stopping overnight on my boat on my own !
  9. I wasn't going to re oil with D1, I thought I could apply D2 over the already oiled wood ?
  10. Thank you Just googled this, it is a two step process, D1 being the oil & D2 is the gloss varnish. As the wood is already well oiled, I am assuming I could just use the D2 varnish ?
  11. I have a wooden rubbing strake which I sanded down and coated with Linseed oil. Can this now be varnished, will the oil have dried sufficiently to take varnish ? or is it either oil or varnish ? I would prefer more of a gloss/sheen than the oil gives it. Thanks
  12. Brokewind ? ........... sorry, should have gone to Specsavers
