  17. Wotcha peevil, well I have just given my boat a second coat of the Keelblack, and my oh my it is fabulous to use, as although it has a thin consistency...it goes on like a dream. Infact quite a few people have commented on how smart my boat was looking..after only one coat I have decided to give her 3 coats anyway, but comparing it another recently blacked boat..i am most impressed. It is better to use rollers for the majority of the work, as it goes on much quickly and imo, gives a better finish. After using the usual bitumen on various boats including my own as well as blacking hireboat

  25. hmm.. now this is confusing ..especially as my degree is in the social field not electrics. I am on a river mooring and used to be moored away from my lovely fellow moorers. My choice as I do like to dance on my decking and sing !! Recently two other boats have moved nearer to me and frequently use their landlines, which is not an issue, so thinking that I was being prudent, I bought a GI from a well known and published company. The model I bought is below, but after reading this thread I am now unsure which was the best option.. a GI or the T thingybob GI with 2 Status Monitors,
