  1. Plenty of large windows , with the deeper window recesses made me think of possible double glazing , there would be more depth for the frames .
  2. Cheers Blackrose , definitely have to think about that . Yes it's a widebeam narrow boat. I will have a look when I get a decent internet signal.
  3. https://www.idsurfaces.co.uk/applications/marine/ This place has a massive selection and different colours , just it's trade only . I will have a look through Atlantic timber.
  4. As the title suggests I'm looking for suppliers for interior panelling , I have found a couple with a great selection but you need to be trade to register. I'm thinking of modernising the look , the old panels are still solid , do you think I would need to strip it all out or just go over ? I was thinking maybe 25 mm battens then secure new boards to that , also put a layer of kingspan in between for extra insulation , it's a widebeam so losing a couple of inch is no problem , even headroom is plenty. Any thoughts , ideas welcome.
  5. Never had to pay a deposit to view any boat , think I would laugh if asked. Once boat is viewed then i don't mind leaving a deposit subject to boat survey .
  6. 07860 568271. Tom Just done 5 of us on Nottingham/Beeston canal.
  7. I just used mole grips on any I could not get out , luckily did not have to drill any.
  8. About same size as me , around 30 tonne fitted out .
  9. I prefer IPTV to setting up the satellite , you do need unlimited net though. For me now it's IPTV , firestick , normal TV then satellite as a last resort if I can't get any other signal.
  10. I can't see the mppt operating correctly with that set up and no negative to PV input , maybe it will still get a charge with all negatives after mppt but mppt won't be working as it should. It would have been as easy if not easier to just wire as mppt manual states.
  11. Don't bother phoning him , just buy a bag of mc4 connectors and do it yourself , it's fairly easy . What has he used to connect as a negative to mppt panel input ? Surely not a link to hull.
  12. No I was too busy with a kebab in one hand and bag of chips in the other , lol ,
  13. At Trent bridge Nottingham a couple of weeks ago I witnessed the boat rage from hell , two posh cruisers , one rammed into the other one and a bloke jumped over and battered the crap out of the other driver , blood flying everywhere , he had Mrs and two young kids on board who were crying and screaming as their dad got hammered , people on the banks were shouting for him to stop and that kids are there but it did not matter to him , he was also twice the size of the other bloke. Then he jumped back to his boat and drove off , hopefully the police got him.
  14. Looks like it does a good job stripping , I am going to wait until paint arrives before stripping back , I tried a spot with the sander and it did not seems to bad a job , maybe just a extra 4 or 5 days work.
  15. Yes I am going with the Jotun range primer / topcoat . It's worth the extra work to get a decent finish , 5 days and I should be back to steel again , I thought the vibrating hands and numb fingers had finished for now but never mind.
