Can you tie up at the quay in Flushing? I know there's a restaurant or pub thereabouts but never seem to make it down there to see.

There are better places to leave one's boat. Go for Fal side, there are pontoons and more pubs to choose from over there.

Great night in Fal. this eve. It's Falmouth Week and 'Red Arrows Wednesday'. Packed on the water, lots going on in Falmouth.

'Hey Joe' appears to have chaffed through a fuel line by rubbing against the underfloor ducting lip in the console. I bought some washing up liquid sharpish and a bottle of mineral water and chucked that in there to reduce the expolsion hazard. . New fuel line tomorrow.

Would be worth putting some 'spiral wrap' around the new hose to protect it.

a round file is handy to take off sharp edges before you put fuel lines and cables in, convoluted sleeving is best for fuel lines and battery cables , http://www.vehicle-wiring-products.e...hp#slitharness

Cheers Mark and Dai. It'll be a 'belt and braces' job, spiral wrap and edge trim around the duct lip.

Buy a foot of the next size up hose and put it on over the new hose, before you fit it
