Paladine, what makes you think I was meaning you when I referred to "Barack Room Lawyers"? I was making  a general observation  and not pointing a finger at anyone in particular.  I just think some people try to "muddy the waters" if you will pardon the pun.   I did not realise that you were in the legal profession in any way and thought after a post  that you made  a few years ago regarding the price of red diesel I thought  you were in the oil industry as you seemed so knowledgeable about it. Smile

warrior, in reaching the ripe old age that I have, I have acquired many skills and even some expertise. I did work for a large oil company for many years, in a variety of roles, including testing and production. There are many strings to my bow  Wink

"2. L'sBelles, some might describe me as a "comfortably off retiree", but I like to think I take the plight of others seriously."

Paladine, I am sure you are astute enough to realise this was not directed at you despite falling into the generalised bracket! Smile
Given your analysis of recent legislation I had assumed you were still practising in some legal capacity.

"LsBelles, the Lockdown was announced Saturday Evening so what was wrong with going to your boat on the Sunday, unless of course you had to work. In which case I apologise."

No problem! I just wanted to point out that not everyone is in a position to be able to drop everything and arrange what they needed to do with such limited notice.
In fact, until this worldwide crisis struck I was often working overseas for a week or two at a time so I would have required much more advanced notice.
Oh well, one positive to come out of our current situation is that I get to spend more time at home. I tell my wife it is positive anyway! Smile

I love this forum, keeps me amused. Let's have a conspiracy theory thread for a laugh.
Anyway, I moor there and think Dave is a great bloke, and a loverly marina.
But can I have some real advice. Had the boat for 5 years and have never done anything special to it over winter. As it's engine is cooled by sea water, am I surposted to put antifreeze in it somehow?, or do any other stuff to winterise it. It's a mercruiser 5l internal engine .

Chicol, the answer to your question is yes. However, as your mate Dave has locked you out of the marina, you won't be able to do it youself. Instead, you and everyone else wanting thier boats winterized will have to pay him to do it.

Now there's a nice little earner.  Smile

I agree Karen, (  Miss Clipboard that always makes me chuckle) about roll on normality. Look after yourselves.    

I cannot get over this lovely weather.    Has it something to do with the word Lockdown.   Mind you I dont think this Lockdown is anywhere like the first one.    So many cars on the road.

Hi Chicol you need to get at least a gallon or more of antifreeze mixture 15/20% then turn of sea water valve/cock remove strainer then start engine up on just above tickover while pouring in antifreeze  mixture when all has been sucked through then pour a couple of pints 50% mixture in when all gone turn off if you are taking impeller out delete last two pints,  you should ideally change oil and filter before this,  and then remove air filter and tip some RedeX into carburetor while turning engine over ths is to wet the cylinders and valve seats, then replace weed filter after cleaning it if boat is kept on the water keep valve shut and tie a note on steering wheel to this effect if your cutlass bearing drips when moored tighten adjusting nuts to stop this or if it has a grease point pump some grease in then turn one complete turn of prop by hand this often stops water drip if not tighten nuts.

Chicol,

Got to pick you up on your throwaway comments !

Firstly, not sure what you think bears any resemblance to a conspiracy theory here in this discussion ?  

Secondly, I would hope as a fellow boat owner you would realise that concerns about people's investments and possessions are far from being anything amusing. Thus the concerns here when the BA overstate or misinterpret rules and as a result influence businesses to take over the top actions which directly affect boat owners.

Thirdly, Covid is not amusing for anyone, least of all those who may who has lost a loved one, or a job. And any points raised here are from varying aspects and challenges that this awful virus has wrought upon people from all walks of life. Perhaps if you don't want debate or discussion about all Broads related matters, whatever they maybe, this is not the place for you. Nobody is forced to join. Please  don't take a pop at the forum for allowing views to be aired,  by dismissing those views so flippantly.

Good luck with your winterisation when you are able to carry this out  - I'm assuming this is a job you aim to do at some later point now that your marina is closed?

Karen
