    Channel 4 Tonight's Canals Program Is On The Broads

    Having spent a lot of time and money and tied up several expensive metalworking machines to produce brand new main bearings ,and big ends for Falcon approx 3 or 4 years ago , at zero cost to the museum, I would certainly hope the museum is taking care of engine bedplate alignment and proper lubrication regime . I am sure the knocking is most likely from some ancilliary pump or linkage etc and not from the bearings .. At the time I supplied an automatic lubricator to be adapted for the engine but am not sure if this is fitted or not

    How Long For The Recent High Waters To Recede?

    Having moored at Ludham Bridge for about 5 years ,we would say that rarely ,if ever would you see much more than 4 to 6 inches of tidal rise and fall Having said that we are exactly 8'6" air draught and often went under at 8' 2" with no problems, as there is generally around 4 or5 inches more than the board shows- but in a hire vessel I would call Rickos for advice before attempting iti- n a hire vessel caution should be exercised as its your responsibilty and the bridge markers often get hit and reset... If in any doubt exercise common sense , arrive at low tide and be aware that occassionaly you might not get through, however most Richardsons boats coming from Stalham do pass under Ludham regularly or they would not be there.

    Running Engines Shock Warning Following Tragedy.

    Hi Alan, we have tried about 5 locations including that area , but still these annoying "false" alarms It was ok three nights running then one wet evening last week ,went off again ,(coincidentally?) when we had the dehumidifier on I got up and moved it sitting it on top of a very large vent grille , two hours latter was up again and it was showing its highest ever reading of 158 ppm which frankly astounded me !

    Running Engines Shock Warning Following Tragedy.

    Having read this topic and being amongst those who have recently chosen to upgrade their CO protection , I was wondering if anyone has had the same problems with detector sighting We have just bought a "Fire Angel " unit which seems to be very good at its job However I am wondering if anyone else has had problems with seemingly "false" alarms I define false as when we are running no CO producing devices of ANY kind and are nowhere near other vessels We have a desicant (or wheel) type dehumidifier which also includes and ioniser and I suspect this may be setting the unit off , so can anyone who really knows the answer , comment on this .... Also we are told , put the unit where you sleep : but for the life of me I cant see how you can sleep with a green led flashing brightly when trying to get some kip , but that's only a minor detail My issue is that a "false" alarm if such it is , will result in loss off faith in the protection device and its swift consignment to Davey Jones's locker - hence my wish to have a clear understanding of what can trigger this unit other than CO I have also tried a different detector which did the same Alex
