Re: Engineer

I used Ιωάννης Γαβριλάκνς. Phone 6948 625756, email johngavrilakis at gmail dot com. Based in central Chania. I won't post an address as I think he has moved office since I last visited him. He will normally come out to do a survey and estimate what the cost will be for a low fee.

Re: Oil central heating

...You cannot get probate on an illegal house until you have paid up... That's what I thought so when my wife died in 2012 I went through the process of getting the house legalised. In the end it went through probate and a contract was issued assigning her 50 % of the property to me without the leg...

Well I've been fighting it in my garden for ten years and it's still there and I started my career as a rocket scientist so don't pretend it is easy to get rid of.

Re: Please settle a wager .

I think one of the problems is that the roots are still alive so the ivy will grow back up the tree. It is possibly this new growth that is making people think that the cut off growth does not die.

Re: Can anyone ID this night calling bird?

If you've got a smart phone there are a number of apps that identify birdsong. Sort of Shazam for twitchers. Some are free and some are paid for but not expensive. Some work even when you are off-line while some need a connection.

Re: Please settle a wager .

It definitely dies off once it is cut off from its roots. In my experience, however, it can be easier to strip it away while it is alive than when it is dead.

Re: Can I borrow my car..

Also check for lower age restrictions. If you are a mature driver the cost of your insurance will reflect that fact. There will almost certainly be an age restriction such that you cannot allow anyone below a certain age, e.g. 23, to drive the car. Anyone with a vehicle registered to a business shou...

Re: Driving from England to Chania March 2018

... Just book a 2 berth. You are not forced to share if you don't want to... Freight bookings work differently from normal car bookings, Andrew. You pay for the vehicle at a much higher price than for a car but the price includes two passengers and a cabin. Since the cabin is included in the vehicl...

Re: More Questions from the newbies

... much better to book your ferrys once you get to the terminal .. It does depend a bit when you are travelling. Around Pascha and some days in the summer, e.g. around 15 August and the last weekend in August, so many people travel it can be impossible to get a cabin if you book when you arrive at...

...Ancona-Igoumenitsa-Ancona for van and with a cabin for 2 persons it is 595Euro... Worth checking if that is a two birth cabin or if you are sharing with strangers in a 4 birth?

Did you try the ANEK Freight web site I linked above? They have different sections for freight and non-freight.

Re: Driving from England to Chania March 2018

They take any vehicle. Try this site or follow Filippos' advice. From the first page:

    Vans - Do I need to travel as freight?

    On Anek Lines, all enclosed vans (with side panels) must be booked as freight regardless of length or load.
