  1. Hello Everyone, Remember when Fairst sunk in the SUmmer of 2014.. and how many of you amazingly offered so much support, encouragement and help on this forum, and in person (the plum cake was my favorite contribution!!) I thought you might like an update on the project! And I'm afraid I also need to appeal for you help - once again!! My old WW2 ship, Lady Doris (formerly Fairstar!) is appearing on a well know TV programme (not allowed to say!!), and I have to get her ready for June 23rd, when they are coming to film the reveal!! I've launched a crowdfunding campaign for SUPPORTERS, VOLUN
  2. Hello Everyone, I thought you might like an update on the project! Also, I'm sorry to ask after all your amazing help and support over the last year, but I do urgently need your help please?! My old WW2 ship, Lady Doris is appearing on a well know TV programme (not allowed to say!!), and I have to get her ready for June 23rd, when they are coming to film the reveal!! I've launched a crowdfunding campaign for SUPPORTERS, VOLUNTEERS & for CASH, so I can meet this deadline (there are lots of rewards like Lady Doris Deckhand Mugs & T-Shirts, Invites to Summer Parties, and larger Hen
  3. Hello Canal World! Some of you may remember by boat (Fairstar, now Lady Doris), sank last Summer. Thanks in a large part to your amazing help & support, she's floating again, and she's doing ok (touch wood!). And now the serious job of restoring her to her former glory is starting in ernest! And I'm afraid I may be a bit of regular around these parts as I ask (hopefully not too man) stupid/novice type questions... The first question I'd like to ask, is what is the best possible action I can take in the bilge/inside of the boat to prevent rot? - She's Larch on Oak construction. - Last o
  4. Hi Bizzard, I rathe rlike that idea actually. It's quite fun taking things back to basics!! I still need to heat the water though... Although, I have a woodburner with a flat top, so I can warm water up in the kettle.. but that's a rather slow way to heat water! Marcus
  5. thank you! I have a petrol powered pressure washer actually... But that won't suit my showering needs.. unless I'm feeling dangerous!!
  6. Richard to the rescue again!! Haha!
  7. Hello! I'm reading lots of old threads about gas water heaters. It's been incredibly useful - thank you everyone, who's already contributed so much to this topic! Sorry, if this has already been addressed somewhere else.. although I couldn't find it.... I'm looking for a quick and cheap way to get hot water please... so i can use the hot water to clean my boat, and have little showers at the end of day of hard toil... She sank last summer, and is still smeared with Mud!! Many of you on this forum were incredibly helpful during that rather sad phase!! I'm still so grateful for a
  8. Hello! I'm reading lots of old threads about gas water heaters. It's incredibly useful - thank you everyone for all you comments! When time & more importantly budget allows, I'd like a gas or diesel system that heats water for central heating, and for hot water... But right now, I'm looking for a quick and cheap way to get hot water... so i can use the hot water to clean the boat, and have little showers at the end of a day of hard graft!! It sank last summer, and is still smeared with Mud!! Many of on tis forum were incredibly helpful during that rather sad phase!! Would som
  9. Hello Everyone! Firstly, some rather fun news! Lady Doris & I are going to be on the telly... (on GC's Amazing Spaces, Channel 4). I'll let you know when it's ging to aired.. but not for some time yet, as we have quite a way to go.. in fact, she's still got mud smeared all over the inside! ... But now the weather is warming up a bit, I'm chucking myself back into the project with gusto. I'm afraid I may be on this forum a bit more regularly again, asking for your help and advice! Brace yourselves!! The first BIG thing to tackle is putting in a system that heats the boat, heats
  10. Thank you for all your help and suggestions! Someone came good on shiply, who's picking her up tomorrow am... So all going well... Lady Ethel shall be at her new home by about 2pm! Yes the cost was more than I paid for the boat... Which is mildly jarring... But then again, I did only pay £142.99 for the boat... So not all bad eh? Thanks again, you're all legends! Mx
  11. Hello! Thanks for all the help! And for working out the weight carlt. Quote from shiply in for £330... More than double what I paid for the boat amazingly... Was really hoping to find a friendly pal with the right gear, who fancied some cash & mini 'adventure' ... Oh I tried my local boat club as they have a suitable trailer... Just waiting to hear back from them! Thanks again for all your help! Mx
  12. Ah that's the one! Need to move it by 21st dec.. So slightly up against it... I posted on Shiply... But nothing come in as yet! Mx
  13. haha!! Thank you guys!! She's quite fun isn't she!? Just got to figure out how to get the little devil home now! P.S. Yup torpedo tubes come as standard...
  14. Hello! Man/Woman with Car & Trailer needed please? Sorry I disappeared for a bit there.. thanks for the hints and tips on heating - wow - it's a big topic! I like the look of those diesel stoves.. a lot more homework required here i feel! Firstly, some good news - she's still floating! And the bilge pump comes on very infrequently now... So it was the stern gland that caused the sinkage it seems... No bad news fortunately in fact... just another little bit of good news.. Lady Doris (formerly Fairstar), is soon to be joined on the mooring by a little friend.. Lady Ethel...
