Re: What will we talk about ...

If someone could be make the effort to search for something on TOP, I cannae be bothered, and actually find what they were looking for, I might believe it's an improvement. Frankly, I feel it has had its time and there's no one left with any wit at all. As for the lounge ........... ?

Re: Moribund doesn't even begin to cover it

Of course they do! I have 2 of the crap devices that overheated their motors, distorted the casings and have no bump stop rubbers left on the rams.

So you don't want a 2GM gearbox or working ST2000+ control boards, then? Your choice.

Re: Drinks

My suspicion that the denizens of these fora are incapable of organising a piss-up in a pub are proving founded. For me, Monday, Tuesday or Wednesday (though all 3 might attract criticism) are all good; DaveS can't do Wednesday, mm5aho (to whom I certainly owe a drink or 3) can't do Tuesday, Ocklepo...

Re: Drinks

Come on. It's downright depressing out there what with Xmas and elections. You need a drink. Where is the Doric - the question is when?

9th & 10th are the only ones of that list that would not cause me familial friction (how dare I go out and enjoy myself?).

Re: Another Dilemma

I've pondered that dilemma too, even if you are a few years ahead of me in the actuarial calculations! £1100 to buy new and lasts say 11 years. Service at 3 years first 6 years then annual after? That's perhaps 7 or 8 services in 11 years. £1100 + £310 x 8 = £3580. Over 11 years =£325/yr Not quite ...

Re: Another Dilemma

The break-even point between annual servicing and a new raft is about 4 years down the line but I have a cynical suspicion that come the 13th year my existing raft will be condemned as unserviceable. Rental would cover me for 1 race e.g. SIPR but not for Round Mull or other meanders in rock strewn w...
