  7. I think that Alan was not referring to the OP (Tanmim) but another lady - for clarity so the OP does not feel she's being got at.

  8. A word of advice. If you find a boat you even remotely like and want to buy then its too late the next day. Boats that are any good and not a rip off price are selling immediately at present. I didnt even advertise my boat as for sale and a savvy new forum member who was studying this forum sent me a pm and drove near on 3 hours for a look and bought it, no messing for him or for me. He had been looking for nearly a year. He got a very good deal as did I as no tyre kickers or brokering fees so both onto a winner. So keep your eye out on forums and such places and you may buy/sell without hassl

  11. Back to the original question. That rust around the chimney collar is horrible. Thing is that it is not too difficult to fix. Last year I removed the stove, chimney, and collar from Bee, I put in a sort of Taylors paraffin stove with a 30mm stove pipe. That left a great big hole in the roof. Got a 12" square steel plate, drilled and tapped it to the roof, fixed it with countersunk stainless machine screws, tidied it up with a bit of filler and a bit of thin rubber gasket, bunged some paint on it, looks absolutely fine. I'm not saying Tanmin needs to start buying a shed full of tools, I'd do

  15. On this day in 2008, Oxford canal. Our last family holiday with teenaged son and daughter. Boat hired from Black Prince. The snowman's scarf had been unwound from the prop the previous evening! He kept our beer cold until he finally melted around Banbury.

  20. Just an update. The fuel boat refuelled me in my absence. I am told by a nearby moorer that after a couple of days the central heating started working again on its own. So all good now.

  23. I bought a boat from Whilton's sister marina in the last few months (owned by them, so all the work was done at their cost). Different people, but same rules and budget. I got a new drive plate and a newly refurbished gearbox (completely different unit), neither of which are anything to do with BSS, The prepuchase contract (assuming identical to mine) says deposit is fully refundable if vendor won't remedy or reduce price to account for BSS or "insurable defects". "Insurable defects" isn't defined, but if it's roof needs replating to protect its structural integrity I think

  25. Yup. Ask whether Whilton or anyone associated/working with them own the boat or whether they are acting as a broker only. Also to confirm that the boat will be sold free of debt or outstanding finance. Other more experienced heads will add more questions. Worth putting your questions in writing so you have a trail (rather than just word of mouth). I'm sure most brokers have their own Bill of Sale templates they use. My boat was bought privately so we used the previous broker's paperwork to generate our own (ABNB). Before you commit to the survey please check the Ts &Cs of the contract you

  32. I found this very helpful document on the Eberspacher site: https://www.eberspacher.com/fileadmin/data/countrysites/EB_UK/pdf_files/info_pdf_ebuk/narrowboat_pdf_ebuk/waterways_findings_281_jn348.pdf. It details what can cause problems and how to guard against short cycling etc. Hope it is of some help.

  34. Today 2005. We were having the new engine fitted by a company on the Albert Canal in Antwerp. Just upstream there is a bend in the canal which was no problem for the smaller barges but when these very long ones appeared they had problems with it despite their very powerful bow thrusters. There was a proposal to alter the line of the canal which would have meant the end of our engine firm but I’m not sure wether anything came of it

  42. With ref to above I think Whilton had told the OP that only BSS necessary work would be done. If it and potentially other issues are flagged as significant but the vendor is not prepared to get them done, or reduce the price, then I am concerned about her ability to reject the boat and recover her deposit.

  43. Whilton's Bill of Sale is very straightforward and shouldn't be a problem (assuming it's the same as Venetian's) and includes a line about "free from encumbrances" I don't think we need to start confusing things by bringing up alternative agreements. @Tanmim H I presume they sent you their standard Pre Puchase Terms contract when you paid the deposit? This means that your next step is to sort out a surveyor for a Full Prepurchase Survey - people here can give recommendations for a surveyor, and get him to book a time with Whilton to survey the boat. The surveyor s

  44. There is good reason to ask this question, as if it is owned in the course of a business, eg by Whilton or Venetian Marina, then it has to be 'fit for purpose' , this means not only must it be up to Boat Safety standards, or at least have a current (small can of worms) Certificate, but it must also be fit for purpose. A legal term, Consumer Rights /Trading Standards. If I were you I'd send an email reminding them of your essential requirements, ie purpose. You must ask if the boat owned by a business. Do not let them have any wriggle room, be polite but be firm. Demand, politely, p

  47. Well finally got my Li installed. Well not totally finished, but getting there. need some tywraps to tidy things up a bit. There’s the Tyco bistable relay on the positive output, the new BMV712 shunt top right which is located above (and thus close to) the Mastershunt. I got 12 links with the 12 cells, so a few are made by me with the same 3 layers of 0.5mm copper strip. At least I had matching yellow heatshrink! Yes the topography of the 4th bank of cells is sub-optimal, but I was constrained by the battery box size. In the middle is the inline fuse tha
