Re: RNLI, we can help!

Interesting comments about the 'beach police' as I came across them this summer on Fistral Beach. They had a very good setup with 2 swim/bodyboard areas, one either side of the surfers only area.

Re: Way off topic Volvo diesel

What condition is the pump housing in..? there is a tolerance IIRC for the impeller to housing in the repair manual as the impeller can be fine but if the housing is badly pitted then it may not be pumping properly.
