  1. I have no idea, but if they don't then definitely nothing will happen
  2. I hope you fed that back to BSS management
  3. I think he may have been wrong
  4. Bit like keeping the old water pump that only leaks a little bit in case the fitted one fails completely, OK to fit to get you out of the crap, but not the way to go if your at home
  5. Take great care if you are considering doing a private rental of a narrowboat to live on, it will probably be an illegal rental.
  6. Mine is identical to a waterpump, probably Jabsco but its over 20 years ago since I fitted it, the only difference is no pressure switch
  7. I don't think I would want to rely on one
  8. I don't see how you can even guarantee the welded nuts are 100% square to the shaft.
  9. They dont do a hangover much good but the shaking use to send me almost instantly to sleep,
  10. I would think Calcutt Marina would be able to help with all that
  11. Or hooked up to a shore line for 17 years with leaky electrics, this one or someone else's
  12. Heaters not working maybe
  13. I did because that was what I could get easily at the time. I didn't know they made a 24 volt gulper for walk in baths then.
  14. If she goes in the galley and cover the smoke detector with her shower cap what's she going to wear when she goes in the shower? I can't think of a cheaper soulution for a faulty smoke detector and I even had a spare on onboard.
  15. I had one with a smoke detector in the galley last trip. It went off every morning while Diana was having a shower, no other time, so it had to go. I couldn't just bin it, it has a fixed battery, can you imagine it sounding in the back of the bin lorry also the battery is Lithium, so I had to rip it to bits, bin the detector and dispose of the battery in a proper manor
  16. Unfortunately this si sometimes governed by your budget, buy one that's overplated or buy one that isnt that needs overplating. As far as the OP is concerned I dont see how any surveyor could put it down to a bad section of steel unless the boat is out of the water and the whole hull checked I don't have a clue why this came up twice.
  17. I have seen units which I think are gas pressurised on glands as well as the spring cup ones Percy: Greasomatic automatic stern greaser (nbpercy.blogspot.com)
  18. I find it quite surprising for the few number of people I see walking rural towpaths is how well worn some of them are.
  19. But 12 volt panels are not 12 volt they are probably about (because I haven't checked) 18 volts and with a cheap PWM controller or an expensive fake MPPT one are more efficient than higher voltage panels.
  20. I have heard that rather depends on who you get come to your boat.
