  1. This looks dangerous. Watch the lady on the bow at about 5 minutes in.
  2. Had a 5ft bath on one of our boats (admittedly 71'6"). Personally, I prefer and use the shower but my wife likes the bath. No problem with water as we had a relatively large water tank and a very big calorifier.
  3. One of my boats had a bath fitted so I had a 100 litre horizontal calorifier with 2 immersion heaters. Depending on the shore supply availability and what I was running at the time, I could use one or if in a hurry use both immersions and ensure I don't exceed the shore supply rating. Just added cold water to get the desired water temp in the bath. Is the 200 litre capacity of your bath allowing for displacement when you get in? Sorry, just realised you have no shore supply.
  4. On point 4, I think the flue would be too short.
  5. Tim, If by chance you take winter moorings at Barton, try the Vintage Bearing Company in Burton. 01283 509562. Near the canal at Branston. Used to get all my oil from them. http://vintagebearings.co.uk/vintage-classic-oil/2528971 Very helpful people. Tony
  6. This post cannot be displayed because it is in a forum which requires at least 10 posts to view.
  7. The ability to tune into your own "local" TV area and programmes when you are away from your home region. Plus there are some channels that are mutually exclusive.
  8. I see Miele market one of their 1200w vacuums which replicates the performance of a 2000w by using a specifically designed floorhead.
  9. Good point. Mind you, I have always considered Miele a quality brand.
  10. When we moved onto our boat in 2002, we took our Dyson DC04 with us but it proved to be far too big and bulky (although it performed well enough whilst we owned it). Sold it and bought a new Miele 2000w 230v vacuum. (pre EU power wattage regulations). Brilliant machine with fantastic suction. Still have it today. Great for getting the very long cat hairs out of the carpet. Should we ever need another 2000W model, they will hopefully be available when we are out of the EU?
  11. Definitely agree. Two of my boats had travelpower and performed flawlessly. I did have a Mastervolt Whisper 6kva 3000rpm on one of my boats (I had a vintage engine) but it was relatively noisy even though it was positioned in engine room well away from the main living area, but virtually inaudible from the outside. I was always concerned about the cooling water inlet getting blocked when moored with the inlet to bankside.
  12. In a previous life selling commercial vehicles, I was very much aware of exhaust emissions and it's dangers but it didn't stop me having a vintage engine in one of my boats. I fitted the longest exhaust stack possible to get under bridges and did not have a splitter. Strong headwinds were sometimes unpleasant though. Investigated having a tilting exhaust pipe, but sold the boat before getting it sorted.
  13. I was previously on 32GBpm for about £15pm (a rolling contract that I obtained through HotDeals UK) and contacted EE to see what the latest best deal was. Someone on this forum had previously posted they had managed to get 64GBpm for around I think £25pm. The saleslady at EE said they couldn't offer this so I said fair enough, I will wait until another offer comes up. After a brief pause, the salesperson said hang on whilst I talk to my manager to see what I can do. She came back with an improved offer but nowhere near what I wanted. She then consulted her manager again and came back with what I have now, but on a 2 year contract only. I was OK with a contract as EE offer a good service and is the only 4g I can get where I live (no landline and no other mobile provider in the area). Even though I have only been on this plan for about 6 months it appears I can upgrade again, should a better plan become available.
