    If you are able to post a photo someone may recognise it and know if parts are available and where to get them from.

    Is it definately a washer on the piston and not a large O Ring? Ive just looked at a picture of remote greaser on sheridan marine (link below) and with the piston removed it looks like it could be an o ring but it may not be the same setup to what you have. Thought it worth mentioning as if it is an O ring it might be easier to find a new one. https://www.sheridanmarine.com/product/remote-greaser

    Gratuities?

    I dont think it would be totally unreasonable if they did.

    Gratuities?

    Pumpouts are usually charged per tank. I can see the sense in all 3 toilets being fed to one tank but not if the tank is only big enough to take 2 days worth, theres always the chance the toilets were being over used or the tank wasnt empty to start with I suppose.

    I think certain roles are more suited to tips than others. Baby sitters waiters/waitresses there must be more. Do we have a tip etiquette in the UK? I tip in situations I think are appropriate but in restaurants when making card payments I always fear the tip wont reach the person it was intended for, I have also heard of places that dont let their staff keep tips or they only get a percentage not sure if that kind of thing still goes on. Imagine my suprise in the USA where they actually give you time to work out your 20% tip on the bill before they take your payment. Being from Yorkshire I found this slightly nauseating!

    Are they on a fake signal box type building on the Barton House Railway plot in Wroxham?

    As we realised because it was falling apart! (ok maybe it wasnt quite that bad but it certainly needed more work than we expected being as it was sold to us as a “fully refurbished exhire craft”) Some yards must sell off the older to help finance the new, others just sell off the sheds they dont want to spend any money on to bring up to standard. I suppose it all depends what standard you are happy with but I (i think i can say like Robin) prefer things to be in a good state of repair and fully functional.

    We bought an exhire boat and never wish to repeat the experience!! Initially it was an absolute nightmare and not the vision we were being sold. It took a long time (years) to get it up to a reasonable standard, my advice to any would be boat owner is never to buy a boat thats just come off hire unless you plan to keep having to spend on it to put right years worth of hidden hire yard neglect however some yards are definately better than others. I noticed some of the old alpha boats have sold, now they really would benefit from such a paint job!
