Capacity is 680 litres so I'm hoping to not need much from them! I'm sure I'd be much more welcome there than at mainbrayce with a couple of jerrycans

http://www.mainbrayce.co.uk/location.html

give them a ring beforehand to arrange, high water is 15.00 on fri 8th may, easier to refuel when the tides up, not that ever goes anywhere up there

Malthouse will give you better info soon I'm sure

Nope, I think you have covered it.

Tim has made a suggestion (in the forthcoming RIB cruise back the way thread) about using your own cans to aid the process.

Mainbrayce will be very happy to help in any way and I'm sure our petrol will be cheaper than on the South coast!

Thanks

Starting to get concerned now, times marching on and I still haven't got my stbd motor running right, I think 1 cylinder is dropping off intermittently under load. Difficult to diagnose when it only does it at planing speeds!

Local merc dealer said he can fit me in for a quick diagnostics test....in june!

Have you tried the obvious, like changing the spark plugs? I had a rough running issue on my last boat which turned out to be very sensitive to having fresh plugs.

Fitted a new plug in the cylinder that was originally playing up. May just replace them all now, even just to rule it out as I've heard lots of stories about Opti's and spark plugs. 16 each though
