    Thanks for the input. I went for the cheaper Screwfix option in the end. One of the main reasons being the refurbished EU20 was no longer available! I'll report back when I have used it a few times.

    Generators

    I'm looking at buying one of the smallish quiet suitcase generators more to use with a Caravan than a boat. I'm looking at ones with a peak output of 2000w and rated for about 1500w such as the Honda EU20i. A new Honda EU20i is out of the question due to the cost but I do have the opportunity to buy a reconditioned one from a local company that has a warranty. This is still considerably more expensive than the new equivalent from somewhere like Screwfix or Machine Mart. The question is are they worth the difference. I appreciate you tend to get what you pay for but is the Honda 2-3 times better. The other option I;ve seen is a Kipor which seem to sit between the two does anyone have experience of them. It will probably get used for 2/3 hours per day on about 15 weekends of the year and is for topping up the batteries possibly some power tool use and a small microwave. Does anyone have any thoughts/recommendations? Thanks
  3. If there are any local canal groups/trusts that aren't a million miles away they may be able to assist for a suitable donation.
  4. I wonder if this purely relates to employed by you where the employment involves use of the boat or if for example you are a builder and let one of your employees borrow it for the weekend?
  5. If you are having difficulty getting the right colour or paint then it might be worth speaking to Paintman https://paintman.co.uk/ he supplied the paint for the CCT boat Python and I know spent some time looking into various colours and shades.
  6. And in the blink of an eye we've skipped forward a year!
  7. Moved to the equipment section to assist in potentially getting more responses.
  8. It can be done with about 6-7 hours cruising each day but it is well worth it!
  9. My first car was a 360 which was same body etc. although with a few more bells and a 2 litre engine. Lasted me a couple of year and then sold it to a friend who wrote it off two weeks later. My current car is a Volv0 V60 D3 so an estate but not a large one. Really comfortable and economical. It was new at the end March and have now done just shy of 35k miles without issue.
  10. Well after now having attended what worked out to be 7 banters over the last couple of days I can honestly say i’m no longer a banter virgin. Thank you to everyone that made me feel so welcome. See you next year! (Or hopefully before)
  11. I'm there or both nights (as are a few of us) so suspect there might be a few that could be persuaded into a lunchtime pint.

  15. It really does show how expensive that is when i'm paying £32 for a 19kg Propane from Calor (Just gone up from £30) or £27 for the size in Flogas delivered!
