I'm off to Calshot (Where I've heard another boat has just been brought down), I'm taking freezer spray, a hammer, a hacksaw, some bolt croppers, a big mutha of a battery, an angle grinder, and a lollipop. Will get back to you with my findings...

you can also get very portable oxy acetelene torches that run from disposable gas canisters.

I think we better change the forum name to RIBTHIEFnet

What about a small portable generator? Don't know what sort of output they produce, but I'm sure there's one out there that would power a grinder.

I have a 3kwt -honda one.Very quiet, ideal for a 2kwt grinder. Its on the boat all the time as back up. Ideal for cutting chains ect ect.

Going off thread ever so slightly - what sort of cost is a portable generator? I've been thinking one might be useful for camping etc, as well as organised ribTHEIFnet outings!

Jimbo - I think everything gets carried a bit too far in these disscusions.
I had the pleasure of meeting Jono some time ago and a more pleasant and entertaining person you could not hope to meet.

I dont know why people become so aggressive on this site.I think we should all stand back a bit sometimes and cool down. I have been on this site for over a year now and have had immense pleasure , learnt alot and still learning. I have found the best way to treat Codders is not contradiction but
kindness and generosity. He even might come out on my rib....

B&Q have some in store 850 watts and all of £49.99 not going to be Honda sort of quality but seeing as apparently we are all just looking to get cheep kit so we can go about nicking this one highly locked down RIB it would do the job.

I bought one of those cheap £50 2-stroke jobbies on ebay. Brand new never had any troubles with it and it must have done 100 hours now. Produces upto 950w and thats more than enough to run my grinder (which if i recall is 550w).
