Time for an oil change


Has anyone got an oil extractor pump I could borrow for a few hours in exchange for a beer or two?  Ideally the type with a 5-6l suction vessel, but smaller would be fine.  Also, is there somewhere to dispose of old oil around here?

Dinghy repairs

Hello – have left Chateau de Chaselet for her second overwinter in Cartagena, with a tear in her dinghy. Been quoted £250 to repair her which I consider far too expensive. Any thoughts upon someone who could obtain the materials and repair her onboard? Would have thought a patch of something like six inches by four with preliminary preparation, gluing and curing could be done underneath the Bimini sheltered from direct sunlight. Could do it myself under instruction, but not coming out again for a couple of months and dinghy currently left unsecured on deck.
