Nope.  Just no postings.

Message traffic tends to be lighter on week-ends.

Most likely everyone is too busy standing guard over their newly filled and now 
extraordinarily valuable diesel tanks.

Albion in new hands XP

Hi folks,
Just to let you know that Albion has now been sold and is in the hands 
of her new owners who are keeping her on the same moorings at Snaygill. 
So, if you see Albion doing something she shouldn't, it isn't me 
honest!!! Only joking; Tony, the new owner, is an experienced and 
considerate boater (he promised me an extra fiver if I said that ;-)))
Could Martin Clark please remove Albion's details from the Internet 
Boaters Database now? Ta muchly.
Roger

Fuel pipes and biodiesel

Hello fellow floaters,

We have just found a supplier of biodiesel near us and have started using a 50/50 mix of bio and dino diesel in
our 2cldr lister. It runs very well and the chip smell is fine. Our 2ryold son thinks its funny to have a chip boat!

The guys who make the biodiesel said the it can perish rubber fuel lines and these may need to be changed. The
only info he can find just says pre 1995 cars.

Can anyonye offer advice on wether the pipes on our engine should be changed? Especially as in the the warmer
parts of the year I would like to run on pure bio diesel and our local boatyard are thinking about going to
biodeisel aswell.

The existing pipes are marked...

98 marine fuel iso 7840 ce 04/4

Many thanks
Lee wells

Wireless Broadband by Three.co.uk

I am thinking of a PAYG 3.co.uk "Dongle"

Had anyone experience of Three.co.uk and coverage? Is it good?
Also, I would think I should go for a 5GB or 7GB as I am on the 
ineternet a great deal.
Which is the method most used? monthly (18-months contract)or PAYG 
please?

There seems to be 4 or 5 different types of Broadband "Dongle" from 
these people. Which is the most popular one? Does anyone know the 
differences between them?

I am using a Vodafone data card at the moment. Download seems to be Oh! 
so very slow! Would the above be a better bet for me do you think?

Any advice or information would be greatful, BEFORE I tie myself up 
with a contact or spend out good money.

Hi Alan and All,

I have a Three dongle PAYG and I am very pleased with it. It's not true PAYG 
because the £10 payment 1GB limit download only lasts for 30 days and if you 
have not used up all the capacity you loose it. Speed depends on location. 
If 3G is not available the dongle will find a suitable signal from what is 
avalable and this can sometimes also be slow BUT when 3G or even better 
HSDPA is avaiable the downloads fly. I have the Huawei E220 dongle, which 
seems the best for the price but I think there is now a faster one now. For 
coverage and other details look here

I can't comment on the Three offering, but as both a Vodafone and Orange 
data user I can fairly confidently predict that whatever network you 
choose will be useless in some locations and brilliant in others. For 
example using my Vodafone SIM card (in the Huawei E220, which I think is 
what Three still offer) I have been streaming the BBC iPlayer in my 
current location (Stoke) but on much of the southern Oxford I couldn't 
even collect my emails.

I took a phone call from someone this morning who was looking at the new 
Three PAYG data offer (12Gb valid 12 months prepaid for £99.) If the 
coverage is anything like as good as the other networks I'd say that's a 
reasonable offer for an average user.

Hi Allan, 
I had a 3g data card with Vodafone, I rang them up and told them I was having trouble with slow and nonexistent
connections .... They sent me out a dongle for free, the next day .... The difference is very good. This year
we went from Doncaster to London down the GU and back up the Thames, through Oxford. .. There were very few
places that we couldn't get a signal.
