  1. I can understand their diesel preference, as they are future proofing against being unable to carry solid fuel. I also worry about it myself as I get older, I am on the list for a partial knee replacement, but currently struggle with getting heavy stuff on and off the boat.
  2. I would have liked more solar, Ian at 3 foot longer is having more, but maybe 1.5 will be enough for late spring until early autumn with some genny running?
  3. Great find Martin, shame about all those very heavy and large batteries, LifePo4s would have been so much better for the job. Apart from that it's a lovely boat and I love that work top.
  4. As I have said I use it watered down on my Veggies it does work especially as its mixed with rainwater rather than tap water
  5. I have friends with allotments, and before I had my allotment it went on my mates compost heap for his garden. I could if I wanted dig over more of my moorings for a garden as its large
  6. Or this is a novel idea they do it at night when its dark and people can't see what they have done

  8. Actually dog poo bags are biodegradable along with the bags that came with my toilet, I don't use them but I found them in the bathroom cabinet and they had turned to powder
  9. Yes they do! I have seen the contents of them on land and floating in the water

  13. Mine goes into the hot bin at the allotment it breaks down very fast I throw in weeds, grass and all the other food based veg waste.
  14. Then it's a reminder to the rest that read this a8dondo it properly Tony. On the Facebook widebeam group I posted to somebody of how to compost properly, and if they didn't don't go the composting route! Now whilst I am pro composting I am against the bag it and bin it as CRT have said it's a no no. Its the same with electric cars and boats, I want and know that it's the way to go but only if your car/boat engine is knackered and you can afford it. Many London boaters could easily go electric for their couple of miles every couple of weeks
  15. Mine was 400 squids years ago admittedly I have said on here that the pee is emptied into my IBCs where its diluted with rain water and used to water the allotment it's a valuable source of nutrients for the plants
