    Is that what you expect Elizmor to do on the bottom when she is launched? Sooo negative.

    You should have had the confidence to hold back and make number 1000 at 0001.

    Nope, just 999. I wonder how that could have happened?

    Digital marketing gold, this is. We should get sponsorship.

    Rayburns....
    We used to have a Rayburn the same. It was originally installed in our old house in 1946

    If any of the brickwork is crumbling in the firebox you will lose a great deal of heat and the temperature will be more difficult to control hence using more fuel.

    I put cut some fresh firebricks and firebox cement to make good and the difference was well worth the effort.

    Once hot and going, it's then getting the right fuel.... we used a mixture of wood, anthacite and coke at one time. Eventually we gave in and flogged it to a scap merchant.

    The biggest problem is often to get a chimney to allow the fire to draw well with such a short stack.

    Sometimes they are put in without a bend in the stack and often an uninsulated stack. If the stack

    is cold then the fire will not draw and it will smoke into the cabin.

    Preheating the chimney with a blowlamp can do the trick just to get the cold air 'plug' out of the chimney.

    Ahhh, memories of days gone by.
    You never get to where you want to go if you only travel on sunny days.

    Damn! Woke up this morning to find that I have missed it!
    BTW does anyone really know what's happening about the launch?

    Are there such things as inflatable rollers? Something like a giant fender. I think RN have used such.

    A row of these squeezed under the hull and then inflated might allow her to be moved with a tractor or like.

    (I'm trying to post something useful to lighten the boredom).

    The army has been called but they are a bit busy so still waiting.However on the bright side the sponsored Lewmar anchor has held perfectly, and the Garmin sat nav will proved nothing has moved at all. As for the fenders, the paintwork still remains un scuffed. Nothing else to report.

    And how many of those casually putting the 'comedic' boot in would like to be ( or could tolerate) being on the receiving end , eh? Or even identify themselves, their boat, their hailing port..?

    Anyone.. I would hate it.

    Bet we've driven the OP off for a long time but what sport, what?

    ( yeah yeah Blueboatmans a sanctimonious prick. And so it goes on, yeah yeah yada yada, but sadly still no splash for the OP.)
    Why argue with a nautical wall? I just read the graffiti these days.
