Nice boat

What’s that it’s sat on? Some sort of temporary jetty??

seen them on the canal attached to jetties, they where lower down to the water than the jetties themselves. I think its for the likes of canoes to launch.
Let me ask you one question. Is your money that good. Will it buy you forgiveness. Do you think that it could. I think you will find When your death takes its toll All the money you made Will never buy back your soul.

They just keep the boat up out of the water yet ready for easy launch.

Not sure I can see the point TBH, unless it is just so you don't have to secure it with as many ropes when you get off the boat, I suppose it would keep the hull clean as well if you were moored in the sea, looks neat though.

Can ail boats corrode if a boat moored in a mariner if a boat nearby has an earth leak? I suppose in that situation it may serve a purpose but a sacrificial anode would be simpler I guess? Duncan would know ....Im just a boiler engineer electrics baffle me!

Indeed they can, I seem to remember a broads piker having just that issue in one of the boat yards. Might have been the late Charlie Bettel.

yes that is correct duncan the late charlie bettels had to have loads of repair welds to the hull where the electrolosis had eaten into it due to being permanately moored thats why most people who moor boats for long periods choose glass fibre boats with antifoul

Glad you like it Luce-wizard and good to meet you again...how can you not like it its a bit of a goodun! Fancy breaking the seat I would have thought I put more weight on it :eek:

I put the tetra dock in because there is a boat nearby with a permanent hook-up and I didn't want any issues plus it saves year on year for anodes, lifting, cleaning and antifoul, but now its surplus to requirements I'm looking at selling for song if anyone is interested.

Lets see the pics Luce-Wizard when you have 'blinged' it :cool:
