  2. err, forgive me you for being thick but surely an expert in all things should understand that poo emits methane regardless of whether it is wrapped up in a plastic bag and dumped in landfill or disposed of in any other manner including being transported by gallons of water to a treatment plant at great cost.

  3. A major problem with/for new boaters is that they do not understand the "warrantee" situation on new build narrowboats, especially one off that it sounds like the OP wants. They seem to think buying new will provide many years of trouble free boating when the truth is/can be very different. I get the impression that unresolved warrantee issues, especially of a major nature probabaly outnumber those resolved. if they can't be resolved in one or two quick visits they are unlikely to be. If the purchaser decides to take the court route the builder is likely to liquidate the company. F

  5. Unless you are an experienced narrowboater so your wants are based on real experience you may be better advised to buy a second-hand boat boat with a layout that you think you want and try it for a while. There is a very good chance that what you think you want now may well change after a while living aboard. When you know what you really need than buy new. However a decent second-hand boat is likely to be far more cost effective than new.

  7. Excellent post. The other way of looking at it is that we have burnt 2,000,000,000 years worth of stored carbon in the last 200 years, and most of it in the last 50. That's a lot of stored sunshine we won't be getting back anytime soon.

  8. Can I have a go? This is how I understand it. Conservation of mass: carbon isn't created on earth, just moved around. Plants are made of carbon from the atmosphere. Animals are made out of the carbon from plants. While the carbon is in biomass, it's not causing a greenhouse effect, but whenever plants and animals rot or burn, their carbon is released straight back into the atmosphere. All plants and animals die so biomass is all temporary and it's carbon neutral. Nowadays oxygen is about 20% of the atmosphere. Originally there was no free oxygen in th

  14. Your going to waste a lot of money if you don’t do jobs like this yourself. Not a hard job, sounds like you don’t want to get your hands dirty? This is basic and if your not prepared to do jobs like this then maybe having a boat is not for you. Or you should of bought a brand new one with a freshly painted engine bay and no dirt.

  16. Except as privileged people they should be setting a visible example of best practice. It should be dead easy to stop the hugging - just make it known that the offending clubs would be banned from playing a make sure its done.

  20. I agree but could this cause food shortages? Also it still produces NOX, I prefer electric where possible and hydrogen produced by excess electricity from wind turbines. Lastly biodiesel for things that are older technology, like our boats until the engine dies anyway and then convert to something cleaner. But a great post that makes us think

  29. I think that post scoring hugging fests should result in the goal being instantly disallowed. That would work.

  36. We may see a lot more of these : My offices in Wythenshawe (Manchester) were very close to the big dairy - when I was going into work at a round 7:00 am, was about the time that the fleet of milk-floats were returning from their rounds, every day there were at least a couple that hadn't quite made it back, and a few others creeping along at 0.001mph to try and make the last few 100 yards.

  44. Ah, telephone boxes! The sweet memories of going in to phone after job interviews, balancing a sheet of paper on the tiny horizontal shelf. That fragrance of charred telephone directories and recently-urinated concrete floors. You'll have me crying in a moment 😢

  46. I made up a 'canoe-skirt' for ours - elastic around the edges to hook over the hatch and doors. Back doors closed, hatch lid pulled up to 'stomach', skirt applied. Watertight and warm.

  48. Sorry to have never followed up on this - once I solved the problem, it of course dropped off my TODO list. It turned out that there were two related problems. Our flue was quite blocked up, but cleaning it out didn't prevent the alarm going off. Replacing the door seal didn't immediately help, but in the process of doing so, I realised that the door latch wasn't shutting tight. The door was always cracked slightly open. As soon as I tightened up the door latch, we stopped triggering alarms when burning smokeless. As for why we were getting alarms with smoke

  49. I actually looked round two of these in the summer. Both have come down in price. - Apache's decor wasn't to my taste and all the furniture is fixed. The kitchen is basically a corridor lined with cupboards and dated white tiles and so your workspaces are the sofa or the bed! Condition was OK - Ben feels small and dark inside (those hatches and doors won't be open in winter) and is really for someone that wants a very traditional boat. It's well looked after, but not exactly young Didn't see Craigdhu but really like the look of it and with that spec, age, apparent

  50. You have land to dispose of your output ! Many (most ?) don't. You are doing it correctly,and for you it us a good system, but for those with no disposal facilities apart from 'under the bed for 6 months' and then tip it down the Elsan, or, give up waiting and just tip it down the elsan (or put the 'sloppy mixture' in the general waste bins) the systems benefits are more questionable.
