Apparently it looks like some form of bedding!

was that what caused the bang and engine stop?

Whilst Timbo's additional propeller wrapping will have affected the performance of the prop itself, it's not caught in the shaft bearings or stern gear and the shaft spins freely. It's also quite ragged which suggests it's been there a while and Timbo was complaining  about Tudor's poorly performance especially going astern from early in the season. 

No, sadly this is not the cause of the engine failure, however, it may have contributed because what was a well worn engine already would have been working much harder leading to increased oil consumption and the resultant prematurely empty sump.

Yesterday there was what looked like the other half of that duvet up on the bank just upstream of the turn to Barton Turf - thought it was a very dead swan at first.

Thinking of where you saw that duvet remnant Stumpy I wonder if it came from the semi-submerged old houseboat that was a little further upstream !???

Good point Jeff - the houseboat has certainly been well 'picked over'. A couple of weeks ago its pontoon back garden was tied behind Pelican on Paddy's Lane.

I think we need a blanket ban on these puns. It's time to put the prop wrap to bed now though maybe we should let the mod team sleep on it before making a decision?

maybe the duvet damaged the pillow blocks, which might then need some reinforcing with sheet ply, its a good job she's out of the water or you might have been divan to clear the prop.

Maybe it's a case of letting sleeping props lie

Maybe not lie if the bed is broken. Maybe the duvet came from a water bed

Well I think the mods have certainly added to the puns , so I guess “they’ve made their bed so they’ll just have to lie in it “

They could be sold for a blanket fee to bolster the Forum funds.

Eider should be writing some of these down as a cure for insomnia, mind you I had a dream the other night about a Disney film where Simba was always the last to get out of bed. The Lie-in King I think it was called! I was in a band once called Teenager's Bed. We never made it! Do you give in yet? :default_tongue:

Karen and i will be back on Lightning next week, good job we have a crib board aboard for those darker evenings, mind you, with nav lights, we could snooze during the hours of darkness, and being a private boat, we won`t get cot out by the maingers. Mind you, if we did, i could`nt give a sheet anyway. At least if i get hungry, Karen can do me a bed roll with bacon in it. Time to put this thread to bed don`t you think? :default_gbxhmm:

I got this update from Selsie earlier. Unfortunately I couldn’t go with him today.
