Odd arrangement of copper nails for single planked? The caulking process only fully works after the boat is put in the water and takes up water in the wood. Only then do you find out if you have done a decent job of the caulking.

PS I love boats, especially sailing boats. SWMBO doesn't so I am limited to hiring a narrowboat for the day - as long as it stops at canalside pubs - often.

So go cruising the canals around Birmingham. There are canalside pubs (although there are less of them than there used to be, thanks to trendy canalside apartments whose owners don't like the noise from the pubs, complained and got the licenses revoked), and a more extensive canal system than Venice.

in the videp bobins posted up on the electric vehicles conversions thread, Ed China mentioned 3 d printing in metal.

Having personally no concept of how this would be done I watched this Video.

This popped up at the side of some videos on the Truck Battery Swapping of Janus trucks in Australia. Not Australia but the Pyrenees. I thought airstrips were flat, or maybe a gentle slope. This is neither flat nor gentle, and its up a mountain. The prospect of impending doom kept my interest, although the pilot seemed calm enough.

Nice. I remember one of the FCF Faithful, Old'uns, had a job on for Ocado, putting the vinyl artwork on the side of some Brand new Electric Vans...

i'll be spotting 5x Ocado 'leccy delivery vans ( Fiat's i think?) next Thu / Fri in Hull.....Blackberry livery if i fit it OK [-o<


well that went well....not :lol:
side livery 30mm too short, bodybuilder gave us an old drawing ](*,)
so no livery, no pics and a Friday off.
not even a peak at the 'gubbins', only external giveaway is the BD logo in place of the FIAT one on the grille
vinyl being (to be) used is a PVC free one to go with the 'green' message, strangely enough it is harder to trim than conventional vinyl - must be like the CFC free cling film, you know, the b*****d stuff that doesn't tear properly :evil:
