  1. Selling my Ducati Monster S4 in Senna grey and red wheels. Will have 12 months MOT. 28k miles. New Racing Ecu, Term exhausts, KN air filter, open clutch cover, fancy brake and clutch reservoirs,. Could do with throttle bodies balancing as its a bit lumpy on tick over and new belts wouldn't be a bad idea, I have had it two or three years but only done 500 miles. I'm looking for a big cc Honda or Yamaha 2/4wd Farm Quad with a decent history and in good nick for similar value, possible cash either way. or sell £3750 which eaves some profit for the new owner as these sell between £4 and 5k. Nr Skipton
  2. Nice Topper sailing dinghy in white hull, royal blue deck, all good, fairly recent sail number, guessing its about 8 years old. Why not treat the kids/grandkids, nothing more character building than shooting and boating! £295 collected nr Skipton. No pictures its wrapped up in the barn here. Google Topper to see what they are if you aren't sure.
  3. One of the later Seagulls with plastic tank, 12V power take off and connection for remote tank. Longshaft 6HP, hardly used, was an auxiliary for a yacht that was fitted with a Honda. Location nr Skipton, £200.
  4. Someone could write a useful book about gun law based on articles in these magazines.
  5. Got a big pile of these from the around when it started up to the mid 90s. Lots of info on shooting, gun law, stalking, antique guns reloading etc. £20 collected Nr Skipton
  6. I inherited a cottage in Scotland, very rural. I'll be spending half the year there and eventually live there full time. Install a gun cabinet and take my guns when I stay there. Assume that until it becomes my main residence I don't need to inform the police.....Or do I? Sometimes the guns will be there while I am off on trips deeper into Scotland, when really maybe they should be back in my cabinet at my main home. Secondly I want to leave an Air Rifle there and I know you have to licence them in Scotland so what are the implications there?
  7. They are brilliant.
  8. The Councils have powers to prevent anyone causing a nuisance through wood and coal smoke already and do sometimes use them. Bought a wood burner from Burnley where a bloke had been Stasi 'd up by his neighbours. You can't ban the sale of wet wood. People buy it to dry it out, just got six tons in for winter 2003, its getting wetter out there just now. Trouble is, twee faux country wannabes install wood burners in their houses in town and smoke the street out. And ride around in Chelsea chariots. This ripoff of county ways needs to be laughed out of town so we can enjoy what we need to survive out here. Don't encourage bans on anything though, because what you love will be next. Tolerance and goodwill is the way.
  9. Breaking my silver 05 Nissan Navara D22, Most parts available eg; Rear Tub in reasonable condition inc tailgate and lights and load liner £150 Gearbox £150, Front diff Unit £ 70, Very nice condition full interior in grey cloth £150, Sump £15, collection Nr Skipton
  10. Fine sentiments Wildfowler! Epic jacket! Looks like 'BB' or Earnest Shackleton should be in it!
  11. Not my size, but now I want one!
  12. I have one here at Bolton Abbey. Good condition £50
  13. Needs to sell quickly as River licence about to run out. Bargain at £4000 tell your friends! Relcraft are a UK manufacturer of boats with a reputation for excellent design, build and quality of mouldings and materials and well known for their John Maxham designed fast cruisers. The advanced hull with its deep V and concave chines create stabilising rails when the boat is cruising at high speeds making this a comfortable and economical cruiser for river lake and estuary, equally at home at a sedate speed on on the canal. There follows an accurate description, the good points massively override the bad, but we want you to have an accurate picture of what you are buying: Caprice was built in 1987 and it is a tribute to the quality of workmanship of the builders that she retains all her original gelcoat to hull, decks and roof and it is in sound condition, so many boats from this era have been badly painted, but this one is all original, meaning if you do want to change the colour of the deck, it can be done with minimal preparation using modern marine paint, otherwise, a little TLC by the new owner will revitalise the shine and the boat will look stunning. A tour around the hull shows some minor damage from knocks and scrapes accrued over the years, but there is nothing of major significance and all easily repairable. There is a mast for the marine radio, bilge pump, horn, an anchor chain winch and the hauser pipe and ample robust deck fittings, cleats etc. A step/bathing platform a the stern. An amply proportioned and very flat coach roof makes an inviting place to soak up the sun on lazy day cruises. The hatch on the foredeck may need replacing as it is looking tired and has been resealed several times. Navigation lights are fitted. The canvas work forming the spacious awning over the ample sized cockpit was replaced with stunning new blue canvas work by 'The Canvas Man' at a no expense spared price of £1600 in 2018. The cockpit has high sides to keep your children safe and full standing height, two swivel seats that are removable and folding and recently re-covered in blue and white vinyl. Aft is a bench seat that would benefit from replacement from a cosmetic viewpoint although the existing fitment is sound. The cockpit makes a great undercover entertainment area which can also be opened to the sunshine through removable panels if required. A full array of metres and gauges, ignition switch, selector for the twin batteries, steering wheel and forward, neutral and reverse controls are mounted to the starboard helm's position. Also fitted is a COBRA 2 way marine radio with GPS capability. Under your feet is the hatch to the engine, reportedly original to the boat, a marinised diesel Ford Transit engine which starts easily and is very quiet, but powerful and powers the boat via a sterndrive. The engine had a new fuel pump and fuel service in March 19, spares are cheap and easily acquired although this is strong reliable unit with comparatively few operating hours. Down two steps through the companionway in to the roomy open plan cabin, with standing height and to port is the heads with a porta potty and basin in its own cubicle. Opposite is an ample sized locker with hanging space for clothes or waterproofs. Again to port is a large U-shaped seating area with a table that drops to form a double berth, opposite on the starboard side midships is the galley which has an immaculate two burner gas hob, as new oven, 2 way fridge and S/S sink and cold pumped water, everything works as it should. Moving forwards is V-berth accommodation with an infill to form a second double berth so accommodation is for 4 people in the cabin with room for more in the cockpit. The cabin is in all honesty perfectly comfortable and functional, but a little tired looking. The wooden fittings are original and solid, but would benefit from varnishing and updating. You can enjoy this boat as it is, or enjoy the project element and a simple internet search tells you there is room for profit in the future if you upgrade things steadily in the meantime as boats of this class with modernised interiors, regularly sell for up to £8000. Collection and payment: The successful bidder must undertake to collect the boat before the end of November and pay by cash or PayPal. There is the free use of a slipway at the home marina or direct access to the River Ouse to remove the boat.
  14. Can't post any more pictures. The artefact was found by a friend who showed it to me yesterday and I only took the one picture. Aircraft engine starter was another thought.
