    Never Ending Story

    As I said on your other post, retire early and you can play with varnishing 'till your hearts content. paul

    Our Time In Switzerland

    Retire to a riverside bungalow Martin? Early retirement means a lot less money but I wish I'd done it when I started working. paul

    Brundall From The Air

    Don't like the place, costs me money walking past the door! Also it is only 5 minutes walk from the boat so it's too easy when bored to wander along and spend money on things I don't need! The main problem with Brundall is the speed mountains on the Street. paul

    Real Boats!!

    Real boats just float along, and do not try and tip the helm into the wet! paul ps watching raggies from the shore is good.

    BSS - Co Alarm Consultation

    Remember CO alarms have an expirey date. Check when yours is! I change ours every 3 years to hell with the cost. It is usually 10 years but having lost a friend to CO, the cost to him was a bit greater paul

    Fuel Prices, Northern & Southern Broads

    Brooms do sell petrol and when we were there on Saturday somebody had filled up with 134 litres of it! paul
  11. This road would make more sense if we drove on the right. Designed for a different country? paul

    Trixie (Rascal's Fleet)

    Why not just step the 24 volt output down to 12 volt, not the most efficient way but you could split the cable before the transformer to give you both voltage options. paul oops just realised it requires 24 volt input

    Thanks for the replies. The unit is tucked away in a corner of the engine bay and as I have back problems so I won't be trying to get in there. The whole lot is 27 years old so I thought of changing it all. I did think of gas but have realised the piping would have to go near the engine so I have dropped that idea. I know it could be done safely but not having gas pipes near the engine is safer! paul
  14. Wouldn't it be easier for them to just tell us when it is operational. paul
