    Diesel tank sludge

    As you have two fillers It would be easy to add fuel to one side until full and then see if you can add any to the other. If balanced they should level off as you fill. but you may need to allow a little time to run through the balance pipe and settle. If not balanced you would find that plenty of fuel would still go into the second tank. I would start with the tank on the high side to see if the list improves. Of course I would not do this prior to polishing the system as it just add more fluid to have cleaned.

    Birthday greetings Sam

    Thanks Guys on Sam's behalf He is holidaying with his family in Padstow, but the good news is he took rods. I hope that they all get a few fish, catch the fishing bug and I get one of my crew back. Charlie

    Evening trips Logistics , names , dates

    Glad you got out and enjoyed yourselves Some of those evening trips are great. Last year Wendy and I did a few, leaving from work within minutes of me clocking off at 5 Usual plan was I took all the tackle with me and got the boat ready at lunch time. Wendy sorts out provisions in a cooler and picks up bait on her way down. Leave Marina at about 1710 coming back just before dark 3.5 hrs later We have had plenty of fish in some places , a nice picnic and cups of tea and enjoyable relaxing time. If other Members join me instead of Wendy, the return is usually delayed until after dark and the fishing taken more seriously a bit further out of the harbour. easiest way is to get them to pick up fish and chips on route

    Wendy's reaction was classic. "Bugger that"

    Alderney 2019

    That's our backup plan Adam I may choose Weymouth though as its closer for crew to find digs and easier to get fuel and to the pubs and restaurants, All down to weather mate
