  1. So there's a gap in the market then ?
  2. And what happens indoors stays indoors, which is why (With wifey looking over my shoulder) I'm staying well away from this one !
  3. If you haven't got any tape I can advise that a line drawn on the wheel hub with the wife's blood red lipstick works too, when she's not looking. I forgot to clean it off and I did wonder what the yard made of it !
  4. Looks a pretty cool summary RSF. Just had a thought while reading it, how about "L" plates ? Maybe red on white for first trip then green on white for the second. It might help identify those who may need help. Not sure if it's worth it but I can't yet think of a reason why not. At least it's cheap ! Also not sure if it's enforceable in the way car plates are. Then again maybe Broads Beat and the Rangers could award an "I" for idiot ?
  5. When I hire a boat the only contract that matters is that between the yard and me as the"Named Person". If you are now introducing a third party I would be very surprised if the yard would, or could, allow this other than as a named member of the party when booking so I am still held responsible if something goes wrong whilst following the skippers advice, so he's not actually the skipper, as in leader, but experienced crew. It follows that I am just as free to ignore his advice as I am of the boatyard, having paid extra for the privilege. It therefore follows further that if I
  6. Listening to John Packman this morning I was left with the impression that they have a firm idea of safety areas to research but left me wondering from the proposed approach if they had actually done it before. I have been following this thread with great interest but am now growing tired of the carping about what the boatyards should be doing and their qualifications for doing it. Hire boats may be a major source of incidents, I don't know, but are we saying private owners are blameless ? Nearly fifty years of dealing with Joe Public face to face leaves me in no doubt that even
  7. This is my kit. Works all over the place, and fast. The newer version is £15 cheaper and apparently identical according to one reviewer but I'm sticking with what I know. The sim lasts for up to 2 years, no 30 day nonsense. As always, read the reviews and make your own mind up. We bought from Amazon. We have usually had a laptop and two phones connected at the same time with no loss of performance. Streaming Virgin TV On The Go (Didn't miss any football !) presented no problems. More detail online.
  8. Genius Vaughan, simply genius. As far as the window is concerned I would say it was worth it. You challenged yourself and won. Presumably you won't need socially distanced greenhouses and table service ? Keith
  9. I shall be watching the highlight shows, however disjointed the format, in the hope of a particularly classic performance. Ed Balls - Gangnam Style !
  10. Quality pics, as usual, when viewing the second one I thought I had a mark on the screen but zooming in I find what looks to be a wind-surfer. He/She could be forgiven for thinking they are the last alive on the planet !
  11. Just be thankful Microsoft haven't caught up with you yet !
  12. All valid points Cheesey, I think Microsoft have never been particularly bothered about users with older kit and lesser specification, despite protestations of innocence. If they have considered it at all it is when advertising the minimum spec. required to run their operating systems over the years. It seems built into company DNA that users automatically run out and upgrade everything to latest levels. Having looked (And laughed) briefly at a Microsoft page of Hardware requirements for Windows 10 https://docs.microsoft.com/en-us/windows-hardware/design/minimum/minimum-hardware
  13. My first thought was - At least they are asking for tips. My second thought was - Facebook ?!?!?!
