  1. How much did he pay for the boat? How much does he expect to sell it for? This is quite specific, and seems to make it clear that a boat which is a continuous cruiser is not a dwelling house, and not liable to CGT: "The analysis which applies to caravans equally applies to houseboats. Houseboats will generally be tangible moveable wasting assets and so exempt from Capital Gains Tax under s45(1) TCGA92. A houseboat which is permanently located on a site and connected to all mains services may be regarded as a dwelling-house. If the houseboat has been used as an immobile residence for a period of 6 months or more and has had all of its engines removed it should be regarded as a dwelling-house. Other cases should be considered on their specific facts. Occasionally yachts, barges or other boats are used as the residence of their owner. In some cases, the useful life of the boat is such that it cannot be regarded as a wasting asset and so a chargeable gain may arise on its disposal. Where this is the case the boat should not be regarded as a dwelling-house except in the circumstances explained above which apply to houseboats."

  3. I think my coffee machine uses 90A, so it wouldn't take much to find something quite normal that uses over 100A for a short time.

  5. I have an instant gas water heater and the shower wouldn't trigger it. I found out how to increase the water pump pressure and gradually increased it until it would trigger.
  6. Never heard of that, (habitual), and am now wondering what it actually means, and whether a house could be made "not habitual" between tenancies? What makes a residential mooring between tenants "not habitual"?
  7. With a house between tenants, the owner/landlord pays the council tax...... I'd have an educated guess that the same applies to a mooring?
  8. IMHO The OP was confusing. They are actually asking about fuel, not fires.
  9. I don't think they come more pragmatic as Guy Holding at Portland Basin Marina: http://www.portlandbasinmarina.co.uk/
  10. Virgin Media now own O2 so their sims are now O2..... mine has been O2 since mid last year.
  11. In 2 x BSS inspections, I have been told that ventilation is advisory not mandatory, so it wouldn't/shouldn't be a fail.
  12. I'd buy this one in 2x2 format, (it's a bit cheaper on Amazon). I'm not sure what 4x4 adds at the moment? https://www.solwise.co.uk/5G-XPOL-1
  13. I have an old Huawei router that runs off USB using a cable to convert the 5v to 12v. My aerial is the Poynting 4g XPOL. The router came free with a Three contract a few years ago. It's currently got an O2 sim which is part of our Virgin Media package. If I was starting g now, I'd get a 5g router, which seem to be around £250 and a Poynting 5g XPOL antenna for around £90. I can't see what the Maxview could do better, apart from connect to ordinary WiFi, so it seems like an expensive solution to buying a router and external aerial. Having said that, I don't see how it would be better or worse on a boat..... it does the same job on both boats and RVs.
  14. That's got absolutely nothing to do with Whilton and fake surveys, which was the assertion questioned, and you know it. As has been intimated, you find one example of something going wrong, and used it to promote doom and gloom, and tar the whole world with that brush.
